Wild Card

Politico reports that Andy Card, who was White House chief of staff during the first few years of George W. Bush's presidency, might run in the Republican primary for the Senate special election in Massachusetts.

It seems unlikely that any Republican can win that election. But a candidate such as Card, a GOP Establishment figure with strong ties to the Bushes, is, in my opinion, even less likely to prevail than other potential Republican contenders.

Admittedly, that might reflect my bias toward the unconventional candidate I described here.
