The GOP Had Better Nominate The Right Presidential Candidate For 2008 – The Future Of The Party Is At Stake

Jonathan Martin, Mike Allen, and Jim VandeHei of The Politico set the table fairly comprehesively and fastidiously, I think, with respect to what is on the line for the Republican Party in nominating a presidential candidate (and ticket, I might add) for the 2008 election cycle. The immediate future of the party is undoubtedly at stake given all of the factors working against it to date, which is why I am not yet ready – absent campaign competition and more thorough vetting – to align behind a particular GOP presidential hopeful for 2008.

The good news, it seems to me, which the authors do not really touch on or explore, is that the Democrat Party is still bereft as a matter of manpower and ideology to tackle the serious challenges confronting America. Democrats have neither the leadership nor the vision to proffer solutions for our future.

Though Republicans find themselves behind in the race to shape public policy going forward, I am convinced that the Democrat lead can be overcome with bold and credible candidates and platforms. Think long and hard, and choose wisely, fellow GOPers.
