Morris says being a front runner for the duration of a campaign is a prerequisite for winning the nomination. In the last fifty years only Barry Goldwater managed to topple a front runner Nelson Rockefeller to win his party’s nomination. As I recall what did Rocky in was his dumping his wife for his mistress. Perhaps that was the first indication ofÂ theÂ emphasis onÂ moral values which now dominates the GOP.
Although we are ten months away from the one year countdown to the 2008 campaignÂ Morris says Hillary has aÂ commanding lead among Democrats and Rudy is the top contender among Republicans.
I knew that the DM&E was a big issue in southeastern Minnesota and may have helped Walz defeat Gutknecht but I’d never heard it described as a big pork project. I wonder if this new wrinkle in the debate helps explain why I heard that Senator Coleman has come out against the railroad. I’m so gladÂ Klune defeated Tom Daschle two years ago so he can be another good Republican for fiscal responsibility.
