    Re: Who will win GOP primary?

    I hope Romney, but I don't think he inspires moderates to vote, and the Tea Party is just too powerful in the primary. I think Perry or even Bachmann could actually win if they have strong fundraising and cut down the gaffes, and if they don't split the vote. If Giuliani decides to run he may have the best chance, because I think he could energize moderate and independents more.

    I voted for Ron Paul for fun. I honestly think Romney will get it, but I can't find anyone that likes the man. *Shrug

    It's too early to tell, and there are a few people who could still get into the race. All we can hope is that it's someone who can send Obama back to Chicago where he belongs.

    Indeed. Huntsman is dead in the water. There's no way an intelligent, science based, actual free market Republican with moderate social stances will win the nomination. It will be interesting to see just how much damage Rove can do to Perry though.

    The thought of Rove going after Perry is funny... I mean, Perry is the monster Rove created afterall but those people were just meant to be pandered to, not actually made happy by GOP policies.

    as always, romney gets no love on DP...
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Actually, as I understand their history, Bush/Rove and Perry had a falling out well before Bush made it to the White House. They never reconciled. Perry never really liked Rove in the first place and Rove did little at the time to help Perry out. Considering how Rove was rumored to be the source of the fliers allegeding Mccain's adopted daughter was actually his illegitimate child from a black hooker outside McCain events in 2000, it will be interesting to see what Rove can cook up about Perry.
