Conservatives on Mark Warner
National Review Online has two interesting articles this morning on our former Governor and his future political prospects.
Jim Geraghty looks at how Warner's particular brand of politics plays with the Howard Dean wing of the party. Meanwhile a portion of John J. Miller's article from the most recent National Review looks at Warner's prospects for 2008 against the juggernaut that is Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately you can't read the whole article online, for that you'll just have to pick up the magazine.
It is interesting that even conservatives are beginning to notice Mark Warner's potential for being the anti-Hillary, particularly in light of HRC's embarrassing "plantation" comment this week. If Mark Warner is somehow able to grab his party's nomination for President in '08, just remember who he'll have to thank for it. That's right, a group of Virginia Republicans, who single-handedly turned a floundering Governorship without any major successes into a supposed "blueprint" for Democratic success in the South.
