I'm Gonna Be Prez-O-Dent

If the 2008 South Carolina Republican Presidential Primary were held today, the winner wouldn't be John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, George Pataki, Mike Huckabee or any of the other big name GOPers making the rounds in Palmetto political circles ... it'd be this guy, John Cox.

Say what?

The reason is simple. Thusfar, Cox, a fiscal and social conservative, is the only declared candidate in the race on the Republican side, meaning he's got the field (for now) all to himself.

"We like to refer to him as the presumptive nominee," jokes Cox for President National Coordinater Nathan Martin.

But the Cox campaign is not a joke. In fact, the Illinois businessman who has run unsuccessfully in the past for the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate is set to notch another Campaign 2008 first - becoming the first candidate to go up on television.

According to Martin, Cox is set to launch a series of television ads introducing him and his positions to South Carolina voters after Labor Day - this year.

Since Cox has officially thrown his hat in the ring (and is about to run some ads to prove it), look for the first FITS candidate interview with this political unknown later in the week.

I thought his signs at the state convention were pretty funny...the fact that he thinks anyone can just be president. If he wins the primary, we can just hand that seat over to the Democrats. What happens during the presidential debate when they ask him why he thinks he is qualified to be president? John Edwards said the Kerry didn't have enough experience to be president (and as a true liberal Democrat he soon changed his mind).
