Who will be the next president ?
McCain vs. Clinton
McCain vs. Obama
My prediction is if McCain goes up against Obama, he will lose.
However, if he goes up against Clinton, he will win.
I think the end result will be: McCain vs. Obama with Obama winning.
Just with the way things are going, Obama looks like he will win.
This poll will be null and void once a Democratic canidate is chosen, but whatev.

hmmm i think I see McCain coming out on top......Although its a close call between him and Obama....VERY CLOSE!

Obama swift boated himself by having a hateful racist anti-Semite anti-American nut job be the most influential mentor in his life. Obama has no chance any more. More of his radical roots will come out.
Right now independants are going for McCain 2:1 and it will only get worse for Obama. Obama is not a moderate and the more of the facade is torn down the more he gets exposed as the extremist he is.
McCain is the true moderate with an endless record of bi-partisanship and he will win the white and independant vote. Dont forget that 20+ % of Hillary supporters say they will vote McCain over Obama. Lets say 15% of them follow through, its over.

From a non American point of view i know absolutely nothing about this McCain character. CNBC is on all day in my office and all they talk about is Obama vs Clinton.Very very rarely is McCains name mentioned.
Whoever it is can only improve on what Bush has done. I'd be happy to see your currency get stronger, your economy to pick up and your house prices to stop falling. Too much to ask?

I think that the reason why the Dems are getting so much attention is because they are favored in this thing, mainly due to the Republican stance on Iraq.
04-02-2008, 08:12 AM
also the reason why they are covering the dems so much is that it is a close race between the 2 canidates. mccain is pretty much the republican canidate.

My opinion is that Hillary will win the Dem nomination in the convention (yes I think she will steal the election from Obama but opt to take him on as her running mate).
The resulting Clinton/Obama ticket will be run all over the unelectable McCain.

I don't believe that Clinton will make it as a primary Democratic canidate. Even several months back when it was neck to neck, Obama just seem to have had more edge overall.
04-12-2008, 01:12 AM
I hope McCain wins. I'm afraid of the direction this country will be headed in if Obama becomes President.
The guy has only been in the U.S. government for 3 years, so we know NOTHING about him, except for the little bits we're learning about him every day. And as each day progresses, his life and comments become more and more disturbing. At least with Clinton and McCain, we know what we're getting.
To all of you Obama supporters, especially white supporters, go read either of his two books. It will open your eyes as to how this man thinks, and make you think twice about how he is going to "transcend race".
Romney should be the candidate, but the dumbasses in this country couldn't see past his religion.

I wouldn't have minded Edwards to be honest.
I'm also kinda worried about Obama taking over as well. It seems like he has a very, very good chance at winning.
04-12-2008, 01:37 AM
Edwards talked so much about universal health care, and how we have to provide coverage for all Americans, all the while he was contributing to the high prices of health care by defending plaintiffs who were filing multi-million dollar malpractice lawsuits.
He's just another greedy trial lawyer.

If she *succeeds*, however, and traps the nomination & offers Obama the veep spot, I think there may be enough angry crossover voters to swing McCain in the general.

At the end of the day the race is McCain v. Obama, and this year could very well be the year that the VP's nominations are just as important.
04-12-2008, 05:57 PM
I'm squeamish/suspicious/gun-shy re: the VP follies, ever since the '92 election. Gore, IMO, contributed little or nothing to the ticket, or to the administration's track record (no, let's not debate the Clinton "legacy" in this thread); mostly he just took "power-whore" lessons from Bill.
04-12-2008, 06:00 PM
If we're all very, very good, we may just get the greatest gift we've had as a nation since the end of the Civil War: the total destruction of the Bush and Clinton families as forces in US politics.

Obama will definitely win the dem primary. Everyone that I know, outside of what would be considered his core constituancy, was appalled by the Rev. Wright debacle. He got off easy with the liberals, but I suspect this will resurface when he's up against McCain. I wasn't sure I liked McCain enough to vote at all, but after what's going on with both Hillary and Obama I'll be voting. Even my liberal wife is seriously doing what she thought was unthinkable a year ago, vote for a Republican. If she doesn't for McCain, she's not voting at all.
Obama might win with a lot of Clinton support, but if not, then I think McCain will win by a landslide. So I voted for McCain vs Obama, with McCain winning.

Obama wins democratic nomination, and then the presidential election. McCain is waaaay too old to be in office for four years, it seems like his mind is much choppier in some clips I've seen demonstrating his relative incompetence.

MrBrightside, why should age matter though? I know to many people it does, for some stupid unknown reason, but age is correlated with wisdom and experience. Who would you rather listen to, someone who is 30 or someone who is 70?
DBinMD, can you imagine all of the uproar had it been McCain's preacher that said something like that?? If Obama wins the Democratic nomination, I think McCain will launch commercials showing Wright's remarks, mention how Obama stayed there as a member of the church for 2 DECADEs and then at the end of the commercial, it will say "Can you trust this man to lead our country?" Case closed, McCain wins the general if Obama is nominated.
If Obama does win the general, even after all of anti-American dirt we've seen on him already (and there's more to come once the general election comes), then the citizens of this country are retarded as **** and deserve a Marxist like Obama.

I wont vote for Obama - the more I research his beliefs and his campaign the more bs I smell.
In reality, we're pretty much ****ed either way. Bigger government, more taxes...
Obama claims to be this grassroots harbinger of 'change', but look into his campaign financing and the people he associates with. He's a corporate puppet just like the lot of them.

The VP scenario is interesting - I have heard Romney or Condi Rice as possible picks. If he goes with Condi, it would be hard to see him not winning by a landslide. Remember, she has an almost flawless record, and her association with Bush won't really hurt her.
I expected the Dems to walk into the Oval Office after Bush - now I don't see any scenario that has them beating McCain.

Part of the fascination of this whole debacle is the free ride. Yes, if it was anyone else in the last 40 years (including Hillary) they would have been gone. It was fascinating to watch him say the same lines (like “typical elderly white women”) that would have caused anyone else to crash and burn. He was probably correct in his statement, as others before him, but the others wouldn’t have gotten away with it.
The whole affair bothers me on a lot of levels. The first is how a rational person could sit thru such hateful speech for 20 years. The next is the perversion of the Christian faith, I know I would have never returned to that congregation, and thirdly, since his mother and his children’s grandmother is white, I don’t understand how he could sit thru that in respect to her.
I think you’re right about the commercials. Hillary may have felt the need to constrain herself, I don’t think McCain will. I also suspect this will be one of the ugliest campaigns in memory.
I don’t trust any gifted speaker who doesn’t have the authority or credibility to back it up. And, BTW, I'm "one of those garlic eating Italians" by way of my dads side, Rev. W. has made it a little extra personal.
04-14-2008, 02:13 AM
What I also find ironic is people who think somewhat like Wright (maybe not as radical though as I don't think many liberals even agree with him) bring politics to the church, but then shout for seperation of church and state!
04-14-2008, 11:47 AM
I'm 100% 'garlic nose'...if I did have any respect for Obama's camp it was gone after I read that remark. I dont care if it wasnt him that said it. Birds of a feather flock together.I don’t trust any gifted speaker who doesn’t have the authority or credibility to back it up. And, BTW, I'm "one of those garlic eating Italians" by way of my dads side, Rev. W. has made it a little extra personal.

In terms of VP I think McCain is better suited with Romeny, he gives a potential solid replacement in 4 years not tied to the Bush administration at all. In fact, if Romney was the nominee they would have my vote.
Obama needs a very experienced, but yet likeable dem for VP. I am a huge fan of Biden, but his name recognition is not at that level. Based on experience alone, he could be president. I could see a Bill Richardson for Obama. Again, it might very well come down to the VP's
I think the dems now are going tostart realizing that Edwards was probably their best chance to take the White House.
