"The Republican flavor, I submit, should be an optimistic competence that inspires confidence. That means someone who exudes the ability to run the federal government, to avoid Katrina-like fiascoes, to plan effectively for the use of military force, and who doesn't scrape his fingernails down the Washington chalkboard. That doesn't at all mean the same thing as he who is best suited to do very bad things to very bad guys," - John Hood, NRO.
