Everybody hates someone

Let's see if we can briefly summarize who irrationally dislikes who:

1) According to the New York Times' Michael Luo, all the other Republicans personally dislike Romney;

2) Paul Krugman's dislike of Barack Obama is a matter of public record;

3) Matthew Yglesias dislikes McCain;

4) Andrew Sullivan really loathes Bill and Hillary Clinton -- and clearly, he's not alone

5) Stephen Bainbridge dislikes everyone except Fred Thompson.

This was just off the top of my head.

"who irrationally dislikes who"

Drezner hates Giuliani. Jeez, don't exempt yourself from this exercise.

According to John Edwards, all three of the remaining Democratic candidates detest each other.

The first one is interesting. Had Romney decided to emphasize his business experience right from the start and not worried about making the pro-lifers like him or knocking down the other candidates in his television commercials, he'd be sitting pretty right now. Instead he's got a bunch of Republican primary opponents who will get starring roles in Democratic campaign commercials this fall if Romney wins the nomination.

As to the second, I think we can all agree that it would be a lot easier for people who spoke up for the Clintons to get jobs in an Obama administration than it would be for Obama defenders to get jobs in a second Clinton administration. Not that this would have anything to do with Paul Krugman or anything.

About the third, so what? And the fourth, and fifth: so what?

I like all of them, I just don't want any of them to be President. Guess that won't work.
