This flight is packed with GOP debate attendees, media and political both.
In First Class: former House GOP honchos Dick Armey and Bill Paxon, the latter of whom is now a well-heeled lobbyist backing Rudy Giuliani.
In coach with me and the rest of the great media unwashed: former Gov. and Sen. George Allen, R-Virginia, a supporter of Fred Thompson, who tells me he will be live-blogging the debate for Fred.
A colleague points out that 18 months ago, Mr. Allen seemed headed to this debate as a candidate, a strong one, likely on a corporate jet or campaign charter. America is a fickle one.
