ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the lack of enthusiasm of the Republicans with their pool of candidates for the 2008 presidential election. He claims that he made this conclusion when some Republican legislators started endorsing people who are not even vying for the position. Cited as an example is the statement of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell when he claimed that John Sigler would make a spectacular president.
