Hugh on 2008

Hugh Hewitt earned a reputation in this last election cycle for having an uncanny, unrivaled ability to cut through the fog and make accurate predictions and assessments--even when they were considered by conventional wisdom to be off the mark. So my heart sank when I read his Weekly Standard article on who he thinks will get the Republican nomination in 2008: Rudy Guliani. I have my doubts, as I don't think a pro-choice Republican candidate will be nominated, for he will (at best) split the evangelical vote, and (at worst) not get it at all. But then again, I'm not very good in terms of predictions, and Hugh is. So we'll see.
