There are two different ways of looking at the possible Republican nominee in 2008. The first is to see who the possible Candidate is that you can most live with. For example in 1992, most Democrats would definitely said that they would rather live with GHWB as opposed to Pat Buchanan.

However, the other possible way is "Which candidate do I think would do worst against a likely Democratic Presidential Nominee?" But that standard Buchanan would have been a much better Republican Nominee for Democrats who wanted to win the presidency (The results of a Dukakis-Buchanan race would be interesting)

Which of the possible Republican Candidates do we as Democrats want as the Republican Nominee in 2008. By this, I'm looking for who would be most likely to lose to a Democratic Candidate of your choice.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
