Goode as Constitution Party's Presidential Candidate?

The Constitution Party has announced its speakers for this year's National Committee Meeting. Virgil Goode is among the speakers. But let me post this nugget:
Virgil Goode is of particular interest for several reasons. He filed paperwork last week to seek a rematch against Rep. Tom Perillo [sic] as a Republican. However, Goode has a history of being trans-partisan; He started his congressional career as a Democrat, became an Independent in 2000, and then joined the Republican Party. He is also rumored to be a prospective candidate for the Constitution Party’s presidential nomination in 2012. (emphasis mine)

Mmmm... highly doubt it. My sources tell me he's definitely in the 2010 race. The RPV takes party loyalty seriously.

There's still time to lose against Rep. Perriello and then run as the Constitution Party's Presidential nominee! :-)

That's a possibility. I would, of course, say that there's still time to not get the nomination and then run as the Constitution Party's Presidential nominee... or worse, run as a CP candidate in the district...

Well, as the blub admits, he is trans-party, whatever that means; why not run under another banner?!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the first ad of the Periello campaign:

In these uncertain times, Americans long for stability. Tom Periello has (insert achievements here).

Virgil Goode has a history of uncertainty. He has been a Democrat, and Independent, and a Republican, all in the past ten years.

Tom Periello: Stable, Certain, Decisive.

Or something like that.

Democrat, Independent, Republican, Constitution Party - the hits just keep on coming! Poor Virgil spent his entire adult life on the public dole and it appears that he will hook himself to any group that will allow him to run for public office again. It also appears his loyalty to party is like American's loyalty to religion. toothpaste and toilet paper. His running against Representative Perriello in 2010, if the Great Opposition Party nominates him, will result in a painful defeat for him and the local Republican Party. A Presidential run in 2012 as the Constitutional Party candidate will split the vote between the GOP and the CP in his native Southside Virginia, but will not give him any notice anywhere else. Poor Virgil needs to get a hobby, his political days are past, no matter what party he tries to align with next.
