GOP Seating Chart: McCain, Huckabee, Romney

Michael Luo’s column today in the New York Times draws the focus off the tensions between Obama and Clinton on the campaign trail and turns its attentions to Republican candidates. There’s not much to the article—it’s like one of those seating charts used in school, you know, the ones where the student indicates whom they’d like to sit next to. So let me condense:

McCain likes Huckabee who likes McCain. Romney stands aloof from the rest and, while he describes his GOP rivals as “friends”, doesn’t really like any of them. Except perhaps Giuliani, who campaigned for Romney when he ran for Massachusetts governor.

The other “news” contained therein is that the campaign staffs are feisty and inclined toward heated exchanges. Next time, borrow a seating chart from an elementary school teacher and publish this “news” as a graphic.
