Everybody Jumping On the Bandwagon

Does anyone else feel like everyone is jumping on the Allen for President bandwagon right now? It's almost weird how many magazine covers he's appearing on right now and how many major conservative talkshow hosts (Limbaugh, Hannity) are practically coronating him as the nominee...over two years before the primaries begin.

Chad Dotson has great coverage of the rising tide for George Allen...including photos of the covers of both National Review and CQ Weekly.

But as we all know the two years out groundswell doesn't make the day, otherwise we would have had President George Romney in 1968, President Edmund Muskie in 1972, President Mo Udall in 1976, perhaps President Ted Kennedy in 1980, not to mention President GHW Bush in 1992.

Frankly it scares me, as the only post to post nomination winners I can think of (in my voting lifetime) are Reagan in 1980 and Mondale in 1984. Other front runners got derailed or so badly banged up they lost the election.

If he wants to be taken seriously, he needs to lose the football in the photos.

The average Joe loves that shtick. Football is now America's Game and football throwing ability shouldn't be overlooked (though that interception record should). See e.g. Kerry, John.
