Bill O'Reilly


(ranked behind Rush only because Limbaugh probably has more influence among staunch conservative Republicans than O'Reilly--who has much more of an independent/libertarian streak)


A couple of weeks ago, O'Reilly said that Mitt Romney is his early favorite. to win the 2008 presidential election over Hillary Clinton


(TRAVERSE CITY) — Fox News commentator Bill O'REILLY told a gathering here today that Massachusetts Gov. and former Michigander Mitt ROMNEY is his early favorite to win the 2008 presidential election over U.S. Sen. Hillary CLINTON (D-N.Y.) in what he sees now as the likely head-to-head race.


Speaking at the Michigan Future Forum, sponsored by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, O'Reilly said former frontrunner U.S. Sen. John McCAIN (R-Ariz.) will be hurt for his "soft" positions on the terrorist interrogation and border security issues.


The host of the "No Spin Zone" and the "O'Reilly Factor" added that another top-tier Republican candidate, Rudolph GUILIANI, the former New York City mayor, is being hurt by his inability to handle the press and his mushy positions on issues. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt GINGRICH and U.S. Sen. George ALLEN (R-Va.) round out the top five candidates on the GOP side.


But in the last two weeks, O'Reilly said he's seeing a lot of reasons to give Romney an edge.


"He's photogenic. He's articulate. He's got money. New Hampshire likes him. This guy . . . you watch him," O'Reilly said.


That's as close to an endorsement as I've seen from a pundit at this point of the game.


Further, when Bill O'Reilly interviewed Ann Coulter last week on "The Factor" the following exchange occurred:


O'REILLY: Is there anything that could make you vote Democrat? Is there any scenario that you could envision you supporting the Democrat candidate for president?


COULTER: If Zell Miller were running against John McCain.


O'REILLY: You're not a big McCain fan, are you?


COULTER: No. Actually, I don't really like any of our front-runners.


O'REILLY: Really?


COULTER: I think it's going to be somebody else.


O'REILLY: I think it's going to be Mitt Romney.


COULTER: Actually, of the ones they talk about...he's my favorite. It's somebody out of the blue.


O'REILLY: I think Mitt Romney is the guy on the inside track that very few people know about.


We know about him Bill!
