I tried to watch Murdo's speech on YouTube the other night. His opening jokes.....bombed, frankly. His approach is interesting - lots of "centre right alternative" and "progressive..."


If it didn't sound so clunky, then "Scottish Progressive and Unionist Party" could just about work. If I was in marketing, I'd go for "Progressive Scotland"....

The Trump debacle was in character for him, I suppose. Lots of bluster which came to nothing

With Palin, it's different. She spent the last election talking up her desire to "take on Washington", has been floodin the airwaves with her hints and suggestions ever week since.  To turnaround the year before the election with "I'm not standing after all" would make her look like the biggest WUM in western democracy.

If they're pragmatic, the Tea Party will support him.

I can't imagine them running their own candidate, it would so far more damage to them than it would damage either Obama or the GOP candidate.

Secretary-General of the United Nations at the first opening.

Sadly I could very much see that as a solid potential.

It is (pretty much) unwritten rule that candidates from the "big" nations (a.k.a the Security Council permanent members) are not even considered.

As convention says Speakers are not opposed by mainstream parties, handfulls of randoms and allsorts are found on the ballot.  This was also pre-Register of Political Parties, so names like "Independent Labour" were allowed.
