The Drudge Primary
brings up a point that we have alluded to around the Cooler a couple of times. It seems that Mitt Romney may have won one very important preseason sweepstakes, the "Drudge Primary." With all the action around the blogosphere on the Romney/Bay Windows Interview- one very notable person never mentioned it...Matt Drudge. Romney hired former BC04 Comm Director Matt Rhoades last week
, bringing Drudge's closest ally with team Bush on board. We at the Cooler have thought for sometime that the conservative news gatekeeper could be hostile towards a Giuliani or McCain candidacy. We'll see if that trend continues.
If you don't think that Drudge's opinion matters, make sure to check out John Harris and Mark Halperins, "The Way to Win
