To evoke Terry Pratchett, what I'm going to be looking for is a candidate who I think will actively try to ensure that tomorrow is going to be pretty much like today.
Liz Cheney (via Gateway Pundit) has some thoughts about whatever person we stick with the 2012 cleanup job is in for:
I'm personally not all that interested in talking 2012 until we're done with 2010, but if I had to make a decision right now I'm going to take the position that 'boring' would be a nice default quality to have in our next candidate. So does 'dull:' it's been just over a year since we started to live in interesting times, and I'm pretty much done with the sensation, thanks.
