Believe it or Not

Not to pat our own back or anything but we've been the one source that's been on the Jim Gilmore story from the start. Beginning with our startingling revelation that there were people who actually wanted to Draft Gilmore (his former staff), moving on to his initial Iowa overtures, and finally with a report on his Iowa team earlier this week.

Well all of that sleuthing has paid off today because the real Jim Gilmore is starting an exploratory committee. We're going to admit it- we've been skeptical and sarcastic in the past with regards to Governor Gilmore- but with the astonishing void being created to the right of Romney and McCain there might be a chance (albeit a slight one) that he's the guy to fill it.

For crying out loud somebody's got to get the Gary Bauer vote.

So with this opening salvo at Governor Romney- “I didn’t run some place and pretend I was a liberal and run someplace else as a conservative. I just didn’t do that.” Governor Jim Gilmore is in the race.

Everyone say it in unison now... "NO CAR TAX!"

Line Change to come...

Jim Gilmore wishes he was Mitt Romney.

Jim Gilmore left Virginia with a $700 million deficit.

Romney inherited a $2 billion-plus deficit and leaves Massachusetts well in the black.

Can Gilmore get to 1%?

Yes, I'm sure Gilmore secretly wishes he was a flip-flopper from MA.

Mitt Romney seems to wish he was John Kerry.

"My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses."

When did he say that, 3:33? Today, or a decade ago?

Assuming that Romney's sudden 180-turn on the issues is sincere, if Romney's views shift that radically over a decade how we can we expect him to stay consistent during a 4-8 year tenure as President?

The explanations from the Romney campaign are as weak as those from Kerry/Edwards '04. Next thing you know, he'll be "nuanced."

When was the last time a President stayed consistent?

    The Cooler line is an exclusive creation of Caucus Cooler and will be updated as the political environment changes.
    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
