Battle for the center

Hillary Clinton vs. John McCain in 2008?

The latter post, by former McCain aide Marshall Wittman, speculates that there will be so many Republican candidates kissing up to the religious right that McCain could win the nomination by cornering the market on all the small-government, latter-day Goldwaterites. An interesting and appealing thought, though with the furious pace of the primary season, the field will probably get winnowed too fast for that. And McCain might have to split those leftovers with Giuliani.
