QoD: Tim Pawlenty on Current State of Republican Party

One has to wonder if McCain might have done better with Pawlenty or Crist.

“The Republican Party is going to have to adhere to its principles, because they are foundational and they are important. But they need to be presented in a hopeful, optimistic, up-tempo, modern, practical way, and that’s not what we have been doing recently. We’ve become too petty and angry in many aspects. That’s unappealing to swing voters.”
