    The endorsement game has more to do with helping the local politician among his local constituents than it does with the national race. Generally, local politicians simply back either the front-runner, or the most-viable alternative if the people of that district hate the front-runner.

    Smart politicians wait until the absolute last minute, to avoid getting burned by changes in momentum. Sen. Shafer, probably the single most intelligent man in Georgia politics, just backed Romney (who will probably carry his district anyway) just a few days before the primary… after not really mentioning the guy at all over the past year. That makes him come across much better than someone like John Linder, who went the early-endorsement route and ended up changing horses three or four times (and who ironically was on the Romney bandwagon to begin with).

    At the end of the day though, endorsements are more a rubber-stamp reflection of what’s going on in a district then they are a serious attempt to shape outcomes. Fun to talk about, but not particularly meaningful.

    Common sense conservatives = code word for … NOT conservatives or BIG GOVERNMENT conservatives or Anti-Constitutional conservatives or Anti-Tax cut conservatives. Take your pick

    Carpe – Exactly.

    The only way McCain wins is that the Dems nominate someone plausibly worse.

    Geez, another “Lesser of Two Evils” GOP Nominee.

    No wonder 4 or 5 House GOP incumbents are retiring and that the Dems are outraising GOP by 15:1.

  4. Harry says:

    Many Republicans are not career pols. Virtually all Dems are career pols. So Republicans step down in greater frequency. I’m Captain Obvious.

    “Granted, there are exceptions.”

    Correct, almost every elected Republican for example.

    If you are an elected official, regardless of party, your main focus is staying in office in perpetuity.

  6. StevePerkins says:

    Yeah, but it doesn’t count when you’re declining to run for re-election on account of knowing that you’d lose due to scandal. Need I start citing the LONG list of names I’m referring to? It would be a shorter list to name the retiring Republicans who AREN’T declining to run due to scandal or the fact that they’re certain to lose.

    Am I the only child standing on the sidelines seeing that this Emperor has no brain?

    No, not Bush. Do you people truly want a POTUS who has been tortured and brainwashed by communists, both Asian and Russian?

    Look at his frikkin JAW, for your gods sake!

    Yessss…vote for your Manchurian Candidate.

    Not that it matters; only a MSM supported Ron Paul can beat the Democrats.

  8. Bull Moose says:

    Rick – I really believe what you have said is way out of line. Senator McCain’s jaw is like that from a bout of skin cancer. You really are very inappropriate.

    If you’re for Hillary go ahead and let the Clinton machine get another Ginsburg on the court.

    Sometimes I wonder how pity we can really be.

    Think. Just a little.

    It would be more fun to make history than walk in lock step with the Good Old Boy Establishment —

    If we can’t have Huckabee or Paul….

    I am with Hillary.
