I’m not sure why certain pundits insist on discussing the 2016 Presidential race this far out. At this point in the 2008 election cycle, for example, everyone knew the race would be between Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. Look how that one ended up.
So, with that said, National Journal‘s Ron Fournier is wondering aloud if a Donald Trump Presidential run is in the works, due in no small part to the ongoing Christie TrafficGate flapdoodle.
My thoughts? Trump is no dummy, but he is a buffoon. If the GOP really wants to lose this race, nominating Trump would be the way to go.
Still. 2016 is an eternity away, election-wise.
Were I to pick my own candidate for President, I’d take a long shot and push former Colorado Governor Bill Owens for the job. Bill was, once upon a time, our state representative, before he was Colorado Treasurer and then Governor. Down side: Bill has no intention of getting back into politics.
Still, he’s about as likely as Trump – or Christie – at this point.
A couple of tidbits:
Mike Tyson Calls Dennis Rodman an Idiot. Pot, meet Kettle. Kettle, Pot.
Sex Makes You Smarter. Well, that explains my own particular genius. (Mrs. Animal may disagree.)
And, finally, I found this interesting: How Fish Moved Onto Land, Bone by Bone. And yes, the juxtaposition of those last two stories was deliberate. Heh.
Well, OK, that was four tidbits. Oh well. Have a superior Tuesday, True Believers.
