Steven Cohen

As the media frenzy in Iowa fades to the media frenzy in New Hampshire, the selection of an American president has completely descended into a poorly acted reality TV show.

For the media, the challenge will be to ensure that the race is close enough to stimulate viewership and high ratings. For the nation, the challenge will be to select the person most qualified to lead the American people.

In order to become president, Rick Perry will need to significantly build on his current status with swing groups. But to count him out and dismiss his candidacy out of hand would be an incredible folly for strategists on either side of the aisle.
