Quote of the Day

"She is female, which addresses the novelty of the opposition; she is smart and well-respected; she is knowledgeable on key issues, especially domestic policy. I still think it's going to be Mitt Romney."Bruce Buchanan, a University of Texas at Austin government professor, on possible McCain running mate Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas).

Other quotes from the same article include "Hutchison is not charismatic. But her circumstances would be if she were nominated," "The conservatives could probably stomach (Hutchison) a lot better than a Tom Ridge or Joe Lieberman," and "OK, she's not a dynamo of fiery charisma; in fact, as I've noted before, she's a bland and sometimes boring speaker, and a pleasant if unprepossessing television presence."
