Mike Huckabee: GOP frontrunner

Mike Huckabee: Presidential Frontrunner One of the first rules they teach pilots is that during a crash landing you should not give up but keep flying your plane all the way to the ground.  There may be things you can do and even in the most hopeless of situations there may be little gifts, changesContinue reading “Mike Huckabee: GOP frontrunner”

Ron Paul Shall Rise Again

Yesterday on Meet the Press they reviewed the declining prospects for the Republican Party.  And the yawning conclusion was that no one can really challenge Barack Obama in 2012 and no one can revive the G.O.P.  They assessed the prospects of all the possible candidates but there was one glaring omission.  Guess who?

Losing presidential campaigns always prompt criticism and “what if’s” but most savvy observers were surprised that Senator John McCain and his creative team kept it as close as they did.   John McCain didn’t come away looking like a loser.  He played a remarkable game with very bad cards.   I mentioned in one of myContinue reading “Inside the McCain campaign: what we didn’t know”

Will Sarah Palin run for president?
