Thirty minutes with a Republican Presidential candidate

Today's radio podcast is an interview with little-known but very motivated Republican Presidential candidate John Cox of Illinois, who may have the most conservative message of any of the announced Republican candidates so far.

NOTE: I apologize for the technical glitch. It would happen that my first Presidential candidate interview experiences a technical problem, but I don't think that takes away from the quality of the interview.

Of course, he has no money, no campaign organization and no chance of winning. There are several more conservatives out there who are impressing people (Brownback, Tancredo, Huckabee, Hunter to name four.) No one is impressed with this guy's campaign, even if some of his ideas are acceptable.

It's great that he's talking with you on a blog, but you have to ask why he wasn't also on Fox News or CNN being interviewed on the day he spoke with you?

We need to get behind someone who has some experience being elected to office and who can actually win the nomination.

Didn't say I was "behind" him, didn't endorse him, but I was happy to have him for the interview, believe me. His ideas are more than acceptable to folks in Iowa right now-as both the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal have pointed out, in this year when there are (as yet) no established conservatives in the race, folks in that key early Caucus State are not laughing John Cox off-he is getting a lot of local attention up there.

If they are not writing him off, I am not ready to either.

As to why he was talking to me...setting up the interview was, as interviews go, the biggest pain I have dealt with so far since I started my show-largely due to Mr. Cox's schedule, not mine. He spoke with me from the terminal at Reagan National while waiting on a plane.

FYI, if you read this blog, you know what I have said about Ron Paul's candidacy-but if Ron Paul wants to grant me 30-60 minutes, I will gladly interview him, also. He has a place in this race like everyone else does.
