Who to support now?

Fred Thompson dropped out of the Presidential race this week. Last year I had hoped he would get into the race. He eventually declared his candidacy but he never seemed like he was seriously trying to campaign.

Who now? I’m not a McCain fan. Definitely not a supporter of Guilliani (not the he is campaigning either). Huckabee? Eh.

Romney looks like the best of what’s left. Hopefully the Democrats will keep tearing each other apart to leave an opening for us.
