How much this reflects the quality of the field and how much it reflects the fact that virtually every congressman thinks it is he/she who should be president is unclear.

But Politico interviews with Republican House members and senators show strong concern about the quality of the present crop of presidential hopefuls and little agreement on who would provide a better alternative.

“Everybody’s looking for a Ronald Reagan, and they don’t see one.”
