11. Yeah, a Ross Perot like candidate in the GOP would be....
like a wet dream right now. But I'm doubtful that will happen. The neocon lockstep is way too tight. Its like the Left-Wing Lock in Hockey. When it works its an unstoppable defense.

The only "x-factor" I see in the GOP is the huge body of disaffected moderates wondering what to do.

In some ways we have it lucky, we know where we are in the political world, and know where we want to go.

The moderate republicans have a really vexing questions on their hands. Bushco has tossed the moderate platform out of the window, and everything he does is an affront to the moderate ideal, especially in the all important "Foreign Relations" that the "great communicator" (Regan they call him) built up.

But, on the other hand, if they feel betrayed by the party's nutters, who do they turn to? Its a hard pill to swallow for the moderate republicans to vote for a democratic candidate just to weaken the neocon power base so they can take back their party.

I really pity the moderate republicans, they are in a worse position than us "loony" liberals.
