Boston Globe: Roy Moore's Popularity May be a Problem for the GOP

According to the Boston Globe, Republican strategerists are worried about a "political confrontation" with Alabama's own Roy Moore.
Moore, a Republican who enjoys widespread support in his home state, is poised to run against a vulnerable Republican governor. If he wins, some party strategists speculate, he could defy a federal court order again by erecting a religious monument outside the Alabama state Capitol building. With the 2008 presidential race looming, President Bush would then face a no-win decision: either call out the National Guard to enforce a court order against a religious display on state grounds or allow a fellow born-again Christian to defy the courts.
