Turn right, then veer left

I had written in an earlier post that maybe the only way to get a moderate in the White House, someone close to the center of the political spectrum is to join the GOP and move it left. Who will the democrats field in 2008? Would you rather have someone from the far right rubber-stamped with the seal of approval by these two guys like baby Bush? I found this info in, American Rhapsody by Joe Eszterhas.

Democrats the choice is yours. Either field someone who can win, hire James Carville early in the game, or back a moderate Republican before we have someone from the far right shoved down our throats. You have four years, begin now to find or develop someone. I mean, even Sports Illustrated is already preparing to cover the 2008 Olympic games in China, you can never start too early.
