Weekly Standard Cruise 2012 Straw Poll
And the winner is...
12:23 PM, Aug 26, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
My stringer reports that cruisers had a chance to vote for a 2012 GOP nominee, with the understanding that it's far too early, etc.
There were 15 names on a ballot that was handed out. About three-quarters of the cruisers (183 in all) voted.
Also, my stringer adds that it's been a hugely successful cruise: It has featured excellent talks and panels (a special highlight--this morning, on the 2010 and 2012 elections, with Barnes, Continetti, Eastland, Ham and Kristol). There have been fun port stops (though Kristol for the third straight day was spotted spending shore time in a used bookstore--two in fact, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island--rather than enjoying beautiful scenery and sights). And there was last night's after-dinner cognac and cigar smoker on the Lido deck, where some of the senior citizens showed more stamina than the young TWS staffers.
