    I was speaking of the independents and disillusioned repubs that were swayed by Obama, but that are completely nauseated by Hillary's utter lack of ethics, honesty, etc. and will refuse to cast any vote that gets her anywhere near the white house with even a shot at being prez.

    I think its going to be a tight race, but I think McCain is going to pull it out. Most Hillary supporters hate Obama. I see a lot of them crossing over and voting McCain. Hell he is practically a democrat anyway.

    This will be an interesting race to be sure.

    McCain is just about unelectable on his own, add that to the baggage that comes with the electorates distrust of the Republican party and you have quite a stinker of a candidate.

    However, Obama is not a great candidate either. He is too far left for most, and coupled with his choice of socialist/black nationalist/communist companions this too makes him a pretty weak candidate. Couple that with just how pissed off the feminist are at him, and we have a recipe for disaster. Does he take Hillary on as VP in order to appease the democratic woman voter, and lose many independents who do not like the Lizard Queen, or does he split the party and take a different VP?

    Perhaps Obama can pick a VP that will appease the beast, but that is doubtful. Hillary is not going to shake hands and go quietly into the night.

    If McCain picks a good solid VP I give him a slight edge, but even then I think it will be pretty close.

    I dont disagree with you here, however I think many of her 18 million will outweigh these disillusioned few

    I agree, Hillary is tough for many to swallow, we in the us seem to hate strong women. However, there are no truly strong vp candidates out there that make either party say wow.

    Dems: Edwards (no chance), Biden (only I seem to like him) Richardson (come on)

    Repubs: Jindal (hes only 36), Romney (Mormon, sorry it matters to too many), Huckabee (This one makes me laugh)

    Not too much out there sadly, I think it ends up Clinton and either Pawlenty or Crist

    I would vote for McCain if he took Jindal as his running mate. Jindal is in actuality the candidate that Obama claims to be.

    As for the VP spot in the Dem race, that is a tough one. Obama is going to have a hard time selling his politics of change with an influence peddling Clinton on his ticket. The reality of the situation is that a Clinton/Obama ticket is nearly unbeatable, whereas an Obama/Clinton ticket is severely lacking. If the Democrats knew then what they know now, about Obama, we would see the Clinton/Obama ticket.

    Where's the Ron Paul Choice?

    It cracks me up talking to my mother about this issue because she thinks Hilary was robbed just b/c shes a woman, but that I ask her about any of Hilary's policies or believes and she has no clue what they are. Stuff like this scares me.

    The vast majority of women feel Hillary was robbed. i spoke to two long time Democratic woman who both voiced that they would never vote for Obama because he took away her place as the first female president.

    On another note, Alaska Governor Sarah Pallin is being tossed around as VP for McCain. She is in her mid-forties and supposedly has 90% voter approval ratings, is a former athletic star, and is a stunning beauty. I haven't seen her picture yet, and i don't know her qualifications, but I bet all those disillusioned female votes would swing in McCain's direction if this were the case.

    The distaste for hillary has zero to do with fear of "strong women". It has to do with her shameless pandering, constant lies, self righteousness, and that stupid snearing smug look she carries....not to mention her sense of entitlement, and utter " political lack of identity".

    she pretends to be whatever she thinks will get votes at the moment....she is therefore NOT strong at all.

    Jimmy Carter advised Obama today not to consider Hillary for the job. He is among a number, some of which are her own advisers, that do not think she should take the job even if it is offered.

    Hillary is an asset inside the Democratic party but not necessarily in the actual election.

    Condie is on McCain's list but he is going to need to do more than nominate her to split the African-American Dem vote and Colin Powell is more likely if that is the logic. The Powell Doctrine has been vindicated by the debacle in Iraq and if his advice had been heeded we wouldn't be in the mess we are in and that would come out and help McCain distance himself from Bush.

    Hillary on the other hand could easily be the next Secretary of State but may soon have more clout as a senior senator if Schumer doesn't run. Also I think she is holding out for the SCOTUS to take Stevens seat and once in I suspect she could end up some day as Chief.

    Obama needs a southern governor or military man. Some of the names being thrown around are Sam Nunn, Evan Bayh, Chris Dodd, and Wesley Clark. Another name being offered is the present governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius, who is a two term Democratic governor of a Republican state. Check out this article that lays it out well.

    McCain stands virtually no chance at all: his dumping of Parsley & Haggis drives a wedge between him and the extreme-right evangelicals the 'Pubs have depended on for decades: without 'em, he has a snowball's chance, and that only if he moves closer to the center (that would be generally left to most of you) than to the fringe; and there are simply too many unresolvable questions surrounding him in general - they add to his general Oscar-the-Grouch / Grandpa Munster charisma.

    Most Hillary supporters DO NOT hate Obama - they hate the idea of a woman coming in second for ANY reason - the idea that many of them will vote for McCain (or stay home) flies in the face of history and common sense - as does this notion that McCain is "practically a Democrat" - like I say, he HAS to move toward the center to make up for his losses w/ the extreme - no more makes him a Democrat than "flying" makes a flying fish an eagle....

    Even among politicians - widely despised for being corrupt, self-aggrandizing liars - HRC stands out as THE MOST corrupt, THE MOST self-aggrandizing, THE MOST dishonest. If that's the definition of "a strong woman" we're in WAAAAY more trouble than we think.

    Any reasonable adult w/ a handle on the world will reject her - the only thing that has kept her afloat so long is the partisan pipe-dream of those for whom a woman president is THE ONLY PRIORITY.

    That sort of monomania rarely wins - and is typically a complete disaster when it does.

    Not too much out there sadly, I think it ends up Clinton and either Pawlenty or Crist
    Jindal's at least as unknown a quantity now as Obama was when he keynoted the '04 DP convention - given the RP's desperate straits, picking him would be no better than Russian Roulette; I think Romney and Huckabee are each likely, as each is favored by a core constituency the RP has long considered indispensable - older-money neo-cons, and the evangelical extreme - and yes, there is considerable interpenetration between these constituencies; however, neither candidate is a real match for *both* constituencies - and given the fact that neither likes McCain at all, it'll be fascinating to see which one he risks alienating.

    On the DP side, I think his best choices are Clark and Richardson; of the 2, I think Clark would be the best "message" nomination - meaqning, he would signal strong military/national-security cred, he's widely respected, and has experience to balance Obama's assumed lack thereof. Richardson OTOH has perhaps the best & most extensive resume in US politics, and would be the best single adviser Obama could have; as well, he is presumed to have real weight in the hispanic ranks, and would further extend the promise of new approaches and new solutions.

    HRC would be the kiss o' Death for the Deeps - McCain could still lose running against her, but he may not be capable of screwing up that badly. HRC is simply the most unpopular figure in US politics; yes, she has her suicide supporters, but HRC remains radioactive & only her person ninja squad will get near her.

    That said, here's a *real* out-of-the-blue idea: McCain / Clinton.

    They're practically fraternal twins politically, as it is: HRC's addiction to power could well lead her to entertain the notion, and she could well bring enough voters to make up for the ones she drives away (the ones she drives away will likely also be among McCain's already-disaffected un-supporters). 'Course, I think in this case we'd see the EEs break away entirely & run a ticket of their own (a Huckabee / Tancredo ticket?)

    McCain will win.

    So the far right has issues with him? You think they'll vote for Obama instead? Or withhold their vote and allow Obama to become the next president? I don't think all this talk of alienating the far right is going to matter quite as much as everyone is making it out to matter.

    Obama and Clinton successfully split the democratic party in two. Not only are their disgruntled politicians who were keen on seeing their guy/gal in the White House, there is also a very large portion of the democratic voters who are disgruntled that their guy/gal didn't get the nod. And ironically it's easier for them to make a jump to McCain who has a fairly liberal voting record in social matters than far right wing republicans making a jump to Obama.

    Think about that for a moment and really consider which voting populace is more likely to jump ship to an opposing candidate because they didn't get who they wanted.

    I think at the end of the day, Romney based on economics will be the best choice for Mccain and probably the right one. For Obama, I just cant see Richardson at all. I would truly love t see Biden who has shown a strong sense of connection to the white working class, which Obama sorely lacks. However, I dont think he gets it, as his name recognition is minimal.

    Hilary and Obama's policies do not differ much. If you look at those alone I see no real reason a Hilary voter would switch to McCain. The problem lies when people choose to vote for the person who appeals to them the most over who's plans and policies will benefit them and society as a whole the most.

    Damn him! BTW I'm really liking the Palin pick. She's hardcore (plus she has that somewhat hot, older teacher look)

    She definitely has the older teacher look but, she's the teacher that would kick your ass. Which might not be a bad thing

    “It is the continuing decline in faith in the politicization of society that has, for well over a year, made the 2008 presidential race the preoccupation of the mainstream media. The media must continue to advertise the products and services of the establishment owners, just as it does for the sellers of prescription drugs and other nostrums.

    Still, the outcome of the 2008 election will confirm the truth of the proposition that it really doesn't matter for whom you vote. Regardless of whether Obama or McCain prevails, the government will be re-elected, and will continue to increase its powers over you. Should you remain dissatisfied with the behavior of the system, the media will be right back to begin its campaign on behalf of "Election 2010," urging you, once again, to continue supporting the process that continues to frustrate your expectations. In the words of Emma Goldman, ‘if voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.’”

    Hard to argue w/ your logic, bro: maybe I'm just messed up by growing up in the 50s (and so, maybe a quart low on cynicism?), but I just can't resign myself to the idea of just letting the pr!cks, @ssholes & manipulators have unlimited free shots at the public sphincter.

    To paraphrase Carlin (a long-time hero of the cynic in all of us): '**** 'em, they aren't the only ones who live here, this is my country too - and I say, **** THEM!'

    Amen to that!!!!!

    I'm a registered Democrat but this year I'll be voting McCain. Obama cares more about winning the race and being part of history than he cares about the welfare of this country. Plus his political experience is mostly as an 'event planner' & organizer.

    Race and sex doesn't matter one bit to me, though one thing that's weird to me is all the hype about the 1st 'woman president', or the 1st 'black president' - even though Obama's technically not 'black'. Damn media propaganda.

    "I'm not resuming my campaign until the crisis is over"-John McCain

    Last time I checked, it's not over.




    At the bipartisan White House meeting that Mr. McCain had called for a day earlier, he sat silently for more than 40 minutes, more observer than leader, and then offered only a vague sense of where he stood, said people in the meeting.

    In subsequent television interviews, Mr. McCain suggested that he saw the bipartisan plan that came apart at the White House meeting as the proper basis for an eventual agreement, but he did not tip his hand as to whether he would give any support to the alternative put on the table by angry House Republicans, with whom he had met before going to the White House.

    He said he was hopeful that a deal could be struck quickly and that he could then show up for his scheduled debate on Friday night against his Democratic ***** in the presidential race, Senator Barack Obama. But there was no evidence that he was playing a major role in the frantic efforts on Capitol Hill to put a deal back together again.

    Still, as a matter of political appearances, the day’s events succeeded most of all in raising questions about precisely why Mr. McCain had called for postponing the first debate and returned to Washington to focus on the bailout plan, and what his own views were about what should be done. Those political appearances are a key consideration for Mr. McCain less than six weeks from Election Day and at a time when some polls suggest he is losing ground against Mr. Obama, especially on handling the economy.

    The substance of the financial crisis aside, it was already proving a tough stretch for Mr. McCain. Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, his running mate, struggled through questions about her foreign policy credentials during an interview with CBS News. Mr. McCain was lampooned on television by David Letterman.


    For a moment, at least, it was Mr. Obama presenting himself as the old hand at consensus building, and as the real face of bipartisan politics.

    “What I’ve found, and I think it was confirmed today, is that when you inject presidential politics into delicate negotiations, it’s not necessarily as helpful as it needs to be,” Mr. Obama told reporters Thursday evening. “Just because there is a lot of glare of the spotlight, there’s the potential for posturing or suspicions.”

    “When you’re not worrying about who’s getting credit, or who’s getting blamed, then things tend to move forward a little more constructively,” he said.
