I would love to see Condi go head-to-head with Hillary in 2008. But I prefer Rudy, because of his toughness and his proven ability to get things done. I am confident in Rudy's ability to prosecute the GWOT. And you've got to love a politician who will turn down $10 million of dirty Saudi money in the wake of 9/11.
I do have some least favorite candidates from the list:
- Newt Gingrich: Have we forgotten the Air Force One snub and Newt's general meltdown? Gingrich was a fine and feisty leader of the loyal opposition when the GOP was in the minority, but his grip started slipping almost immediately after the success of 1994.
- Bill Frist: Totally underwhelming. An empty suit.
- Chuck Hagel: No one who compares the Iraq war to Vietnam gets an endorsement from me.
- George Pataki: ?????
