Carolina in My Mind
In the political world, everyone's mind seems to be on Carolina today.
An interesting side note since yours truly is an old Pat Buchanan man: Mike Huckabee is now targeting our vote directly. If he continues with this line of thought in his campaign rhetoric and wins the nomination, would this give vindication to those of us who supported the Irish Catholic firebrand in 1996 to see the Baptist minister take up the causes Old Buck did and win in the South with them?
If he does get nominated and continues with his current rhetorical line, will the media give Pat the credit for breaking the ground he did in 1992 and 1996 (short answer: no)?
Look out for Fred Thompson today. This may be Fred's last stand...or it may not. Fred has run a first-class insurgent campaign in the Palmetto State and has focused more time there than any of the other candidates. A surprise win in still possible, and if that does happen, this business is far from over.
