No grand theory needed

On the presidential race, a lot of Americans are asking: Is this the best the GOP can do? Why didn't any of the Republican big-guns run? Andrew Sullivan provides a straightforward answer: "Christie isn't ready. Daniels didn't have the charisma or balls. Jeb's last name is Bush. The new crop of governors - Rubio, Scott, Walker - is too green. Barbour is too Southern. Palin couldn't handle more scrutiny of her actual life. Sometimes, no grand theory is needed. Events and timing matter. It reminds me of the Dems in 1991. But they had a Clinton in the pack of cards. A rogue card, but better than any that the GOP now has."
