Well, I will go as far as a steak dinner. The only other real option is Guiliani, and until the purge of the GOP is complete, which should take about four years, he hasn't got a chance of being nominated.
The political calculus just isn't there. The Democrats are on their way to dominating the West, and they have completely swept out the GOP in the North, and are now making inroads in the South. It's just some regional religous party. I like mine medium rare, and no "Golden Corral".
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
