Obama needs to get in a fight and do something really mean and unfair to the right. (Gays in the military/revoke Don't Ask Don't tell). He's afraid of the backlash. He could also tell the banks to go screw themselves. Either way, he needs to do something that says he doesn't care about losing political capital. By front loading health care and climate, he made being politically safe his primary objective. He doesn't think he can afford to piss people off until those two are done. (Back to Emanuel, whose job is to tell him that he shouldn't front load all of his controversial proposals.)

Fred Burton: The GOP folks I talk to are pushing Jeb Bush. I think that is a mistake. Who else is out there?

Anya Alfano:  The neocons on top of my hill all want Tim Pawlenty.

Bart Mongoven: Pawlenty is good. I think Romney could do it if he is himself. He was as badly handled in 2008 as Al Gore was in 2000. It should have been his nomination and he screwed it all up. Newt might actually pull the trigger. I think Huckabee could do it just to piss off people like me. I would tell Jeb that his time came and went when Katrina went under water. Frist would love to do it, but it'll take time for him to get up and running.

Fred Burton: Romney can't make it. Mormons are viewed as Voo Doo. We need a sharp young Governor. I also like Michelle Bachman.

Anya Alfano: Tim Pawlenty is about as close as the GOP gets to a sharp, young and eligible governor.

Fred Burton: Bobby Jindel? He's some sort of Indian.
