All Doom and Gloom?

Ralph Z. Hallow reports in The Washington Times that Values Votesr found no candidate to back after last week's summit.

That's good news, of course, for Rudy Giuliani, but the real danger lies, as the piece points out, in a diminished likelihood that the GOP "can look forward to previous years' 'drag your neighbors to the polls' support from Catholic and evangelical Protestants in November 2008. It lost that level of support in the 2006 elections, which produced Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress."

If all that is true, then the only hope is that values voters identify the danger inherent in a Clinton presidency and are energized by her candidacy. This fact is perhaps why Lynne Cheney seems cleverly to be promoting a Clinton nomination.
