Thune boycotts CPAC boycotters
Senator John Thune (R.-S.D.) has much the same dilemma as Tim Pawlenty: He's a fine conservative but not well-known and not instantaneously a stand-out in the crowded primary field. But he is, it seems, going to make a go of the 2012 presidential race. He has announced he is now appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering next month.
This is a rebuke, of course, to the boycotters. However, it is Thune's big chance. Can he captivate a room and put his knowledge of national security matters to good use? Is he too much of a Washington insider, or can he capture the attention of the Tea Partyers? We'll get some answers next month.
