POLITICS: Dead George Walking

George Pataki basks in the glow of the potential presidential candidate. I can't see how he thinks he could get anywhere; can you seriously imagine who would vote for Pataki in a GOP primary when Rudy Giuliani is running? Then there is this:

The governor said Democrats took control of the Senate and House Nov. 7 because "they tried to appear as the uniters."

"Republicans didn't have an optimistic vision," he said in his speech. Democrats "came across as the party that was broadminded and more inclusive. The Republicans came across as the party that was looking again to polarize."

Besides the obvious untruths here, Pataki is missing lesson #1 of presidential primaries (or any primaries): you don't win primary elections by running against your own party.
