I look at the less than Magnificiant Seven, and I ask, is this really the best we have? There were so many good people who could have run and didn't. Huckabee didn't run because he was doing his show. Palin was too busy selling books and making speeches. Mitch Daniels didn't want to answer questions about why he and his wife separated before they got back together, which sounds really trivial compared to Newt and Cain. Tim Pawlenty Gave up after losing a meaningless straw poll. He's probably kicking himself now. Jeb Bush would have been great, if not for his name. Although even now, the Bush years seem like a happy memory. Thune, Barbor, Pataki, Guiliani... All taking a pass. No one seems really happy with Newt, no one seems really happy with Romney, the Paul supporters are happy, but they're delusional. Bachmann is a joke, Perry has been a profound disappointment. Huntsman is in the wrong party.
