NY Times columnist David Brooks recently wrote a column about the senator from South Dakota who I have always thought would make a great presidential candidate. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/13/opinion/13brooks.html?_r=1
Hopefully he will catch on. He has a real shot of beating O'Nightmare in 2012. He's conservative, honest, articulate in an aw-shucks sort of straightforward way. And he's a handsome dude, which I've found from personal experience, has never hurt :) A guy like Thune would be a whole lot better than Palin, Romney, Huckabee or the other cast of characters in the GOP. Hopefully he's interested.
