These days, presidential campaigns get started way too early.
If you doubt that, consider the fact that the 2008 campaign was already well under way by this time in 2007. It will be four years ago next month that Ron Paul and Rudy Giuliani had the famed fight over foreign policy that launched Paul’s career and began Giuliani’s slide.
It’s worth watching on YouTube, just to get an idea of how much has changed since then. On the stage were 10 candidates. Nine seemed comfortable in the conviction that the eventual GOP nominee would cruise to victory on the strength of the Bush administration’s brilliance in foreign policy.
