58. I think so too, McCain and Giuliani are too unpredictable
John McCain may, somewhere deep down have a conscience. He's been trying to hide it for the past few years as he desperately clings to Bush's coattails and embraces every right wing nutjob that will let him get close but frankly, I don't think they trust him. Giuliani is simply uncontrollable, a disagreeable man with an ego the size of New York.

They need and want someone who has no principles, can make a good appearance on television, in short a somewhat more sophisticated version of George Bush. That Romney can speak in complete sentences and utter the occasional three syllable word without tripping over his tongue will supply enough contrast with the current administration. His good looks coupled with a newly found conservative philosophy make him the closest thing to Reagan that they are likely to find.

Watch him--he's dangerous.
