Giuliani for Allen

A big part of me says that it will come down to these two for the Republican nomination. Which is why it will be interesting to see the body language coming out of these events, the last respite before the long war:

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, will be with Allen in Norfolk for the announcement Aug. 16 of the formation of a statewide veterans group backing the Virginia senator's re-election. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is slated to come to the region Aug. 30 to host a public fundraiser.

I would love to be a fly on the wall during the McCain-Allen meeting.

Honestly, the only way I see Allen getting the nomination is if McCain and Giuliani both run and split the vote and allow Allen to pick the remaining votes. This is why I don't think Giuliani will enter the race unless McCain is forced to drop out for some reason.

The only way Allen gets the nomination is if he's the only one running. There's just something about a guy who wanted to be a dentist as a kid because he'd get to hurt people (according to his sister) that is a bit... unnerving.

McCain is going to be an interesting case study. He's got name recognition and a base (since he ran before), but he's got liabilities - certain parts of the base not liking him, age, etc.

And then there's Romney, who may well turn out to be the wild card in this whole thing.

But in the end, I think this is Rudy's for the taking.
