    I don't see him switching parties at this point, do you? Given that and his age, thankfully he will never be elected president.

    I brought up the primaries question just as an aside, not as an attempt to be consistent because "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesman and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do." (Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was a contemporary of that incumbent president that was denied nomination for re-election, hint hint)

    I hope Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, or Sarah Palin don't run again in 2012.
    And especially Jed Bush. Please, no.

    Whether you actually know who that other incumbent was who was denied his own party's nomination (making Obama the second) or whether you just wanted to call me ignorant because I said something you didn't like.

    I knew the answer was Franklin Pierce. I'm a huge civil war buff and I just finished reading a book about the rivalry between Lincoln and Douglas that talked about it. That isn't to say there aren't candidates that wanted to seek the nomination but knew they wouldn't win it like LBJ and Wilson who tried to get it even when he really shouldn't have (he ended up dooming his stand in, McAdoo)
