Southern Republican Leadership Conference

The SRLC is some kind of exceedingly early straw poll for the Republican Presidential candidate. Though it is early, some measure of importance is attached to coming out on top. If a front-runner gets embarrassed or an also-ran hits success, everyone's strategies will surely change a great deal in how to market themselves through the 2006 general elections.

Slate gives a great rundown of the event, focusing especially on what the outcome of this conference may say about the Republican strategy regarding Bush—distance themselves from him, continue to hold him up as the standard bearer, or whatever, it will be interesting to see what the rhetoric will be.
