GOP Searches for True Conservative

The GOP continues to search for a true conservative to run for the White House in 2008. Mitt Romney is trying to become the right's candidate, but I'm not convinced he can fit the bill. This article points out why I'm not convinced. Romney's wife Ann did, however, point out that her husband is the only one among Romney, John McCain and Rudy Guiliani who has only had one wife. Conservative Christians will take note of that fact but is it enough to win their vote. I doubt it since Romney hasn't been consistent on other social issues.

What about Mike Huckabee? Here is a link to his interview over the weekend on ABC News. Huckabee doesn't fit the republican mold on every issue (who does?) but on social/cultural issues he is in line with conservative Christians. That will certain get him significant consideration among that voting bloc.

Lastly (and unrelated to politics) my friend, Terry Whalin, published a "must have" book about the secrets to getting published titled Book Proposals That $ell. It can now be ordered from this blog through the link on the side that reads "Want to get a book published?"
