Loss of Presidential Stature

I often hear it lamented that we don't have any greatly appealing candidates for the 2008 presidential nomination. I think this is exactly backwards, that we in fact have more larger-than-life, highly qualified (if not completely so) candidates running than we have in many years.

That said, Peggy Noonan makes an insightful point (doesn't she always?) about how little "stature" most of the candidates seem to be displaying, and she does it with her usual elegant prose.
