Am I the first to mention this here lately?
I just noticed this article, in which Former U. N. Ambassador John Bolton (remember him? If so, regret it?) hints that he’s thinking of running for Prez in 2016. John Bolton’s address to conservatives was heavy on 2016 talk.
A brief Google search shows that he’s been discussed here on SDMB many many times, mostly from his tenure as U. N. Ambassador. And there was a brief flurry of scuttlebutt about him maybe running for Veep in 2012 under the Palin/Bolton ticket.
Does the guy even have a prayer? I’m thinking that maybe, just maybe, he does. (Gulp.) He’s famous for staking out some outrageously hard-line hawkish foreign policy positions, but he doesn’t seem to be in the same league as the far-right Tea Party type of loons. He seems to have some strong foreign policy chops, and argues that foreign policy – specifically, a very hard-line foreign policy – should be a major focus of our political attention.
Could he prove to be the Conservative Messiah that the Right Wing Faithful have been praying for? Could he emerge as the right wing candidate with legs?
