Exit Christie

by Conrad Black

From my most recent NRO article, on the state of the GOP field: “Now that Christie has passed, the Republicans shouldn’t keep beseeching the reluctant from beneath their balconies; they should stop overlooking those already running who may be better qualified than has been appreciated. Jon Huntsman, a successful governor (Utah) and ambassador (China) with a business background; Herman Cain, with a serious career in different businesses and an original policy thinker (his 9 percent personal, corporate, and sales tax is a serious suggestion); and even the slightly ponderous but thoughtful and principled ex-senator Rick Santorum — all of them deserve more scrutiny than they have received.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
