Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Mark Sanford for President?

The WSJ today has on its editorial page a column on South Carolina's governor Mark Sanford.

The gist of the column is that Sanford seems to be the only Republican left that holds fiscal responsibility in high regard. He has apparently fought against dems and GOPs in the SC state house to keep spending low and to cut taxes.

In a race that seems to be somewhat wide open (McCain seems to be the frontrunner, but that could change), Sanford could be the dark horse candidate in the '08 GOP presidential race. I do think the GOP is going to want a fiscal conservative after the fiasco that Bush has been in that arena. Also, if the WSJ is helping him out; he will have a pretty captive audience (I would say the WSJ readers are the big fiscal GOPs).

The only problem with this is he says there is no way he will run for president in 2008.
