A recent poll shows 62% of Americans say they don't want to vote for Palin, but kinda just have to see what would happen.Makes me think of 1979 when I was visiting at the University of Texas. One of my colleagues-I forget his name--was as nice guy, good company but somewhat to the right of Ivanhoe. The topic arose, who would the Republicans nominate in '80? By way of outreach I suggested--how about John Connally?
Somewhat to my surprise, my pal hesitated. "He'd be an interesting President," he said at last. "For another country. A small country. Like Belgium. With no nukes."
Lyndon Johnson used to say that he was afraid of John Connally. Wonder what Mitt Romney thinks of Sarah Palin.
