Attack from the Right:Timothy Noah in Slate discusses the need for a "Republican Nader" someone, like say, James Dobson to run a campaign to peel off votes for Bush. While I think Noah's story is both biased and cynical, he does have a point. Bush needs someone on the right to run against, but not some crazy right-wing loon. He already has that vote. He needs someone from the center-right who will challenge him on issues where he is truly week, like fiscal policy. What is needed is someone like a McCain or Hagel who could challenge Bush on this issue as well as how he is handling the war on Terror. I don't know if this will happen, but I just keep hoping.
