My favorite, Fred Thompson, is no longer in the race.
I am left with John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee. All have flaws.
If Romney is still around on February 19, he gets my vote since he’s the most conservative candidate with any chance.
(By the way, when liberals say all kinds of nice things about John McCain, the red flags go up for me). Wisconsin Republicans do have another choice on February 19th. They can crossover and vote for a Democrat. Yes, because the Republican picture is becoming a bit clearer, Republicans can have a say on the outcome of the Democratic race by voting Clinton or Obama.
Why do it?
A few reasons.
1) You can.
2) You’re not thrilled with your GOP choices. 3) You can help decide which Democrat you’d rather see on the ticket come November.
4) You just feel rather mischievous that day.
Am I endorsing this tactic?
Not at all.
I’m just being realistic.
I believe a fair amount of Republicans will either do it, or seriously consider it.
