The Hawk on the Candidates
John Hawkins has a post at Human Events
running down the Republican field fairly exhaustively. I don't agree with these comments about John McCain:With a guy like McCain, even if he wins, Republicans still lose because they'd be forced to have him as their party's representative in the White House for at least four years.
Yes, McCain irked us because, as John points out, he seems to be the go-to guy for the media when they want a Republican to criticize other Republicans. But does that matter if he's the top dog?
Overall I agree with his observations, although slotting Jim Gilmore as a second-tier candidate seems a stretch. Tancredo's a one-trick pony and he's said too many stupid things over the last couple years to be trusted in the spotlight.
