George Will Says Only Obama, Pawlenty or Daniels Will Be President, Excludes Romney
Great clip from the latest edition of This Week with Christiane Amanpour (yes, she still has that job somehow) via the Daily Caller in which conservative columnist George Will says the candidates with a chance at winning all the way to January 20th, 2013 is Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and Gov. Daniels. And Daniels is still undecided.
“This is the most open scramble on the Republican side since 1940 when Wendell Willkie came out of the woodwork and swept the field,” Will said. “I think — people are complaining this is not off to a brisk start. I think that’s wrong. I think we know with reasonable certainty that standing up there on the West front of the Capitol on Jan. 20, 2013 will be one of three people: Obama, [former Minnesota Gov. Tim] Pawlenty and [Indiana Gov. Mitch] Daniels. I think that’s it.”
It’s interesting that George Will would exclude Mitt Romney from this list when as of now he’s considered the “”frontrunner” since Huckabee bowed out on his show last night, but I understand his logic. It is going to be tough for Romney to win (or come close to winning like last time) in Iowa or many other early states with health care as such a large issue in the primary season.
It’s hard for a guy to be elected President if he can’t win his party’s nomination. But that remains to be seen. Video of Will below, again thanks to the Daily Caller:
