    He reminded me of Dubya immediately the first time I saw him. I wouldn't say his "built in" electorate is a huge asset for electoral votes as much of it (such that it may be) is in states any R would win.

    •  But he will appeal to displeased "indeps" (0+ / 0-)

      His appeal will mostly come from R states anyhow, but I can see him appealing to a lot of "independents" who are looking for a big change--they see Obama, they see the problems with the economy, and think why not, let's give this cowboy a shot.  He's white, he's bold, he talks without thinking, he wears his faith on his sleeve--I see a lot of our fellow citizens going for that.  Then again, we are a long way from Nov. 2012 still, and after a few months on the campaign trail he could look reckless and self-absorbed.
