Let's all welcome Senator Brownback...

I welcome Senator Brownback to the debate although parts of me wishes he would just be happy remaining a strong conservative voice in the Senate. But we all have various ambitions and I wish him luck in building a credible campaign. Let's just hope his national aspirations don't cause him to "grow' in the Senate over the next two years. Brownback Moves Toward White House Bid

SIDE NOTE: “Apart from McCain and Giuliani, other potential GOP contenders for the White House include Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Gov. George Pataki of New York, Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson.”

A few remarks: Senator McCain has a few problems with parts of the GOP and Chuck Hagel is simply a John McCain wannabe – Chuck Hagel ain’t gonna happen. And only someone looking to increase word count would include George Pataki among GOP contenders. Mr. Pataki is about well-liked within GOP circles as he’ll ever be and as he gets out the word about what he “accomplished” in New York, people will be wondering why he’s not running as a Democrat.

Personally I'd like to see Chuck Hagel run. He's a strong conservative (with libertarian leanings) who is strong on foreign policy and defense, something that is weak in the current Republican field.
