You know far be it from me to quote the great former mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown, but today he made a good point on Hardball. He said no other official or potential GOP presidential candidate has the legs as he called it to | Read More »

The year is 2003. Tom Ridge is chatting, explaining what’s going on with Homeland Security, having a seemingly good time. His good natured counterpart in the conversation lets Ridge run with the conversation. The other party in the conversation is Rush Limbaugh. Ridge had called into Rush’s show.

Mr. Ridge and Mr. Powell thank you for the input, but I must politely say “f**k off
In 1986 I ran a campaign in Upstate New York. It was a primary campaign for an open seat and it was more then obvious that the potential to be very negative was there. I had the better candidate.

None believed that the announcement would come this week. Conventional wisdom lately is that Mitt Romney is the most likely pick when the decision is made.
