    If you look at what it did to Huckabee, Barbors chances of higher office are over

    Willie Horton anyone?

    And in the alternative, Ricky Ray Rector didn't sink Bill Clinton, nor did Karla Faye Tucker sink George W. Bush.

    Voters have extremely short memories.

    Well, I remember more than a little talk about his presidential prospects a year or two ago.


    But it's moot now.



    ETA -- the OP's link makes reference to the earlier talk:

    I was thinking about Barbor the other day. The guy is one savvy politician. He would actually make a good vice choice for Mitt. It would offset his robotic tendencies and be a formitable force in the south.

    AFP: Mississippi suspends controversial mass pardon

    According to the article, Barbour acted unconstitutionally.

    I don't think he'd be a good choice for Mitten.
