The Importance of Electability

John Mark Reynolds explains that he will not be voting for Republican candidate for President Mike Huckabee -- because he agrees with him about almost everything. Mr. Reynolds argues that the Republicans need a candidate with a broader appeal. Of Mr. Huckabee, he writes:

He has no proven track record of appealing to voters not already in the fold. We don’t need someone who can preach to the choir, we need the equivalent of C.S. Lewis who can talk to people who hate choir music.

He mentions Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson as two candidates who might have the ability to bridge that chasm.
