Katrina VandenHeuvel, Editor of The Nation, has an interesting nutshell for why the GOP doesn't have anyone very happy with their Prez candidates:
Look at the debate we had a few weeks ago. You had Democrats debating what was the best national healthcare plan they could offer the country and you had Republicans debate which method of torture would be best employed if they could bring in Jack Bauer.video here.
people seem to prefer solutions to problems affecting their lives over new ways to mis-manage a terror threat made worse by bush. Again, i have to say, don't elect people that HATE the government and expect them to do a good job RUNNING the government.
