The road not taken
Tigerhawk explains who he supports for the Republican Presidential nomination and in the general election. But it's the decision-making process he goes through that's particularly interesting. It begins by laying out what personal qualities, in his opinion, a President should have; a crucial step because to spec the candidate often implicitly names the man. But he's not through. Tigerhawk goes on to examine his shortlisted candidates on their positions where the issue is not the man but the plank on which he stands. Finally there's the question of electability, without which it's all academic.
Whether you agree with Tigerhawk's choice or not it's fair to say that he looks under the hood and kicks the tires with due diligence. Who does he pick? Well read the whole thing.
