Charlie Cook: A 'Placebo' Would Beat Obama Right Now

(Fox Nation) - On [last night's] edition of 'Hardball', fill-in-host Ron Reagan posed a question about the unelectabilty of the current crop of Republican candidates to Charlie Cook, a non recognized and non partisian political analyst for MSNBC. Cook notes that a "placebo" Republican nominee would stand an "excellent" chance at beating President Obama in the general election.


Charlie, let me start with you. It seems to me, when I look at the Republican field, that none of them are actually electable.


The thing is, I think a placebo would have an excellent chance of winning. I think this is the Republicans race to lose. You can't nominate a placebo, you have to nominate a real person and whether who they nominate can do as well as a placebo.
