A DLC-esque screed on the horrors of manhandling moderates. Not all that outrageous, though I feel that it's the base that's calling the shots on the admin, more than the admin calling the shots on moderates. And at this point, I'm nearly willing to see if this party can't walk on it's own two feet without this supposedly invoilate base.

But I did find interesting her choice of analogy for Rudy and Newt. Maybe it's the cynic in me, but it suggests a fear that these guys could generate broad-based appeal that drives said choice.

Giuliani and Gingrich hope, that like Ted Haggard and Jimmy Swaggart, they can be "cured" of their "sins" and emerge as the born-again heroes of the religious right.

I still have a hunch that Greengrich would be chosen by one Giulius Caesar as his VP.

More likely a vote against the psychotically Orwellian voice of "let the Eagle Soar."

I actually don't know that much about Ashcroft's reputation prior to hitting the national scene. I know he had a reputation as pretty far right and pretty into restrictive government, but I wasn't all that familiar with him prior to his stint as AG.

Not everybody agreed with Ashcroft. But after 9/11 we needed somebody like him. I'm just glad it wasn't Gore and co. there.
