President Tancredo?

During a visit to HUMAN EVENTS this week, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.) said he would prefer not to run for President, but would do so as a single-issue candidate for immigration reform if other candidates ignore the issue. Already this year, he said, he has made trips to Iowa and New Hampshire, homes to the first-in-the-nation Republican caucus and primary in 2008. “I am trying to make it so when presidential candidates come into these states they’ll have to deal with this issue,” Tancredo said. “I’m trying my best to whip up the crowd, to get them focused on what we should ask presidential candidates.” He added: “If no one else takes this mantle and runs with it–and hopefully someone who does it can also get elected–if no one will do that, then I will.”
