Goldwater disliked... Richard M. Nixon of California, whom he later called "the most dishonest individual I have ever met in my life." It is believed Goldwater, then a Senator, forced Nixon to resign at the height of Watergate by threatening to vote in favor of removing him from office if he did not. The term "Goldwater moment" has been used to describe a moment when members of Congress from the President's party disagree and go against the wishes of the President.
are the signs already emerging? Lugar? Warner? Snowe? or someone least expected?
maybe the bigger question is whether or not there is someone who even has the cajones?
a lot of questions to just ask...
