Here's a taste of it:
Mike Huckabee now has a TV show where he discusses current events, plays with a rock band, sings with the new “American Idol” (“The Huckabee household has been rooting for this guy all season!”) and talks to a “Biggest Loser” trainer on his special feature, “Get Healthy With Huck.” I know Huckabee is pretending to be a candidate for the presidential nomination, but really, I think he’s found his permanent niche.It seems like Obama is made of Teflon, so unless something surprising and earth-shattering happens in the interim, the Republicans don't have a chance to win. So whoever does run against him deserves a medal of bravery.
The two biggest names are Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, one of whom has too many ideas while the other has no ideas whatsoever. But they are bound by the fact that neither one of them is actually ever going to be nominated for president even if we have another Ice Age and the only Americans left alive are them, Dennis Kucinich and that woman who was Miss California until Donald Trump fired her.
Gingrich’s romantic history makes Senator Ensign look like a monk. (Last time around, we were so hoping that he and Rudy Giuliani would survive till the end of the primaries so we could say the three major Republican contenders had had a total of eight wives.) And he’s basically spent the last decade as a talking head. When it comes to career preparation for a presidential race, the worst two options are mayor of New York City and Fox News guest commentator.
And the Republicans have over four years to develop/discover their next leader.
Of course, there may be a movement to repeal the amendment limiting presidents to two terms....
