In all this chatter about Romney v. Huckabee, we're losing sight of a simple fact: Both these guys have the charisma of a lamppost. The media has them both in heavy rotation right now because Hillary would steamroller either one (aside from the fact that they're both about as liberal as she is...) Heck, Obama could beat Huckabee in a general election, and Barack shares a name with the guy for whom we just threw a necktie party in Baghdad, an unfortunate coincidence not normally considered an electoral plus...
The only two GOP candidates who could beat Hills despite the media bias are (hawk *SPIT!*) Giuliani, because the media doesn't hate him too much, and Fred, because he's got enough stage presence to overcome media bias in a one-on-one general election. The media hated Reagan, too, but that didn't keep him from winning the last landslide election victory this country's seen.
Put all the media driven poll crap out of your mind and picture Rear Adm. Josh Painter in a one on one televised debate against the junior senator from New Yawk... Fred would beat her like a drum.
This won't happen, of course, because the GOP is going to pieces so fast that people are getting hit by the shrapnel. Between Huckabee leaving his Baptist Christmas turkey carving knife in Romney's Mormon ribcage and Pat-fer-gossakes-Robertson endorsing the crossdresser from New Yawk, the GOP seems to be putting in overtime to make sure that Bill Clinton gets to hang his toothbrush back up at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
