The AP’s Nedra Pickler is reporting that Tony Snow has joined the GOP electoral arsenal. Here’s the details thus far:

“They asked, and I thought about it a lot and we went back and forth,” Snow said. “It’s one of those things where I certainly want to help the president. But you have to make sure it’s a fine line, and that’s why I don’t want to get into opponent bashing. The approach I’m going to take is not going to be one of going out and whacking Democrats by name, but straightforward comments about what the president has accomplished,” Snow said.

Tony’s yet another ‘weapon’ that the GOP that the Democrats don’t have. The DNC can’t send their ‘superstars’ anywhere in the US and be widely accepted. Republicans can send Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, President and First Lady Laura Bush, Lynne Cheney, Mary Matalin, Karen Hughes, Speaker Hastert, Majority Leader Boehner, former Speaker Newt Gingrich out almost anywhere.

On the other hand, Democrats can send out…Barack Obama. They certainly can’t send Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi and the Clintons out anywhere. They have to send them to already blue districts.

Tony’s a gifted speaker with a great sense of humor. He’s originally a speechwriter. He knows how to connect with voters. This makes too much sense to ignore it.
