A Strong Field

by Rich Lowry

I’ve thought the Republican field is pretty weak up to this point, but a field of Romney, Perry, and Ryan or Christie, with Bachmann as the tea-party dark horse, would be entertaining as hell and quite strong in my view.

(It’d be especially entertaining with Christie in the race, although his camp is strongly denying the focus-group rumors. The buzz in conservative circles the last few weeks, for what it’s worth, has been that he’s slightly open to it.)
