In the Fix's Friday Presidential Line
- they are in love with Newt but not so much for Huckabee. The National Journal insiders poll
has an affinity for Newt as well, but not as much as Rudy. We at the Cooler are singing a different tune today. While Gingrich would create a tidal wave if he jumped in this race, the time has yet to come. And as it stands today it's Brownback with his social conservative credentials, declared candidacy and a clear constituency that is moving up the Cooler Line.
One thing everyone agrees on- George Allen's Senate loss has sunk his Presidential ambitions. So we are moving him off the line as GFA looks to John Warner's Senate seat or the Virginia's Governorship in 2009.
With that Brownback goes from 33-1 to 24-1 and Allen goes from 250-1 to OFF.
Have a great weekend Coolerites...
