Reconsidering Perry and Huntsman

George Will: "Obama is running as Harry Truman did in 1948, against Congress, but Republicans need not supply the real key to Truman's success -- Tom Dewey. Confident that Truman was unelectable, Republicans nominated New York's chilly governor, whose virtues of experience and steadiness were vitiated by one fact: Voters disliked him. Before settling for Romney, conservatives should reconsider two candidates who stumbled early on."

His alternatives: Rick Perry, whose "political assets remain his Texas record and Southwestern zest for disliking Washington and Wall Street simultaneously and equally," and Jon Huntsman, who "inexplicably chose to debut as the Republican for people who rather dislike Republicans, but his program is the most conservative."
