Ted Cruz: Half the package, on a good day

Democratic Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid is saying that if Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wins the Republican nomination for president, it would destroy the GOP. He made the remarks on the Rachel Maddow Show on Wednesday night.
“If I didn't care so much about our country, I would hope he will get the Republican nomination for president, because that would be the end of the Republican Party,” Reid said.

“Ted Cruz, he`s someone else.”

I frankly don't think Cruz will be a credible candidate for the nomination, though he is certainly taking a hard look at the Republican presidential race in 2016. He's been in  Iowa, and will be going to South Carolina, another early voting state.

Everyone talks about how bright Mr. Cruz is, and that may be true. Perhaps he saw how far Sarah Palin has come using Tea Party rhetoric though with her serious intellectual limitations. With his Princeton and Harvard background, he must think that he can surely do better. 

Cruz is forgetting that in politics it is also useful to have a personality. And though Palin seems only to have personality and Cruz only a brain, the former governor of Alaska probably has the leg up. 

If only they could find a way to become one person.
