The Race for ’08 is really starting to heat up. Today brought two major announcements, one from a Conservative Republican, the other from a Democrat. Sam Brownback announced that he is formally running for President. I am moderately impressed with Brownback, although I have had reservations ever since he failed to support the President’s new Iraq stratergy. If Brownback can erase these reservations, or Iraq becomes a non-issue, I would have no problem supporting a Brownback campaign. I am particularly impressed with his stance on religion in public life.
The other candidate who made an announcement today was former first lady Hillary Clinton. Clinton is forming an exploratory committee. I have many problems with Clinton, and supporting her is out of the question for me.
