Mark Warner Drops Out

Read all about it here. I'm guess that Gov. Warner found out that Sen. Clinton was monopolizing the '08 Democrat money, decided he couldn't win, and bowed out gracefully in the hopes of getting the VP nod. I bet he wishes he had run against Sen. Allen right about now.

From our point-of-view, this is good news and mildly bad news. Good news in that Gov. Warner might have been a pretty good presidential candidate. I believe Gov. Romney could beat him, but by claiming the mantle of a "moderate" and putting Virginia into play it would have been a bit more difficult and, since elections don't happen in a vacuum, might have been the Democrats best chance at sneaking in a spoiler.

The bad news is that this solidifies the anti-Hillary candidates on the Democrat side into only Sen. Edwards (he of trial lawyers' money), increasing the odds that he takes her down and denies us Republicans of the weakest candidate. Luckily, Sen. Edwards isn't a particularly strong candidate himself.

Of course, I'm getting ahead of myself. The biggest mountain to climb for a potential Romney Admiinistration remains the Republican Primary. On which we are making great progress.

Sally Bradshaw signs with Romney

Thanks to my co-blogger Kevin for pointing me to this one:

Sally Bradshaw, Jeb Bush's longtime political adviser and one of the bigger political brains in politics anywhere, has signed on to help prospective presidential candidate Mitt Romney. For the immediate future Bradshaw will be advising Romney's Commonwealth PAC on key Republican races across the country.

So can we finally put aside the speculation about Jeb in '08?

Ann Coulter now picking Romney

O'Reilly had Ann Coulter on his show last night, and again made his belief that he's betting on Gov. Romney known. Surprisingly, Gov. Romney picked up another voice in Ann Coulter.

O'REILLY: Is there anything that could make you vote Democrat? Is there any scenario that you could envision you supporting the Democrat candidate for president?

COULTER: If Zell Miller were running against John McCain.

O'REILLY: You're not a big McCain fan, are you?

COULTER: No. Actually, I don't really like any of our front-runners.

O'REILLY: Really?

COULTER: I think it's going to be somebody else.

O'REILLY: I think it's going to be Mitt Romney.

COULTER: Actually, of the ones they talk about...

O'REILLY: I think Mitt Romney is the...

COULTER: ... he's my favorite. It's somebody out of the blue.

O'REILLY: ... is the guy on the inside track that very few people know about.

COULTER: And as he's pointed out, although his...

O'REILLY: All right. One more question real fast.
