Bob Barr selected as Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee

I got a text message last night from a friend of mine who is in Colorado at the LP National Convention. Barr has been selected as the presidential candidate. Las Vegas entreprenuer Wayne Allyn Root, who was also vying for the presidential nomination, accepted the Vice-Presidential nomination.

My thoughts?

Certainly the LP could have done worse, and done better. But the selection of Barr is not a bad choice. He's an experienced politician, with name recognition, and will bring credibility to the LP as a candidate.

Is he ideal? Of course not. But with Barr as a choice, I may re-think my decision to sit out this election cycle.
