Grossly Over-rated Prospects for '08

This doesn't bode well:

Several high-profile Republicans attracting presidential buzz are scheduled to visit New Hampshire this month as a Democratic commission considers changing the 2008 primary calendar, possibly diluting the state's first-in-the-nation status.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is first, and his spokesman said the Tennessee Republican supports New Hampshire's traditional key role.

"He does not support changes to the existing calendar," Bob Stevenson said.

If ever there was a time to pull New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation status, this is it. It is unlikely that Frist (or Romney or Patacki, the other favored candidated favored in the Granite State) could win the election. In fact, given Frist's track record of managing the Senate, I have little confidence in his potential presidency.

This is exactly why I wanted Cheney off of the ticket last year. For once, I hate to have been right.
