Joshua Green points out that Rep. Thad McCotter (R-MI) -- who dropped a last ditch attempt to run for re-election as a write-in candidate -- "joins a small but notable club of congressmen whose improbable designs on the White House led to embarrassing career implosions. Failed presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul may have raised their public profiles and increased their stature with the folks back home; most of their peers haven't been so lucky."
