McCain (my choice) will win the general election, IMHO.

But I've got to say, I saw Obama's speech at the end of Super Tuesday, when he was in Chicago. Don't know if they showed the whole thing nationally, but it was as good a political speech as I've ever seen. This guy was on FIRE!! And on top of his charisma, I think he's smart, pretty genuine and a decent guy.

He's formidable..

Too bad Obama's a socialist.

I'm tired of Democrats promising the "Gub-ment" will give everything to everybody who, for whatever reason, can't seem to make it on their own. Let the "Gub-ment" have all the power to take away from the people who earned their money, through taxation, and give it to the poor, after wasting and stealing about half of it, like every "Gubment" program in the last 50 years...

Why, instead, it's better for a smart dude like Bush to give a blank check to the Military Industrial Complex, and to throw it down a rathole like Iraq.

Please, Osama, do us a favor and make sure the first nuke goes off in DC...

Rush Limbaugh has not said anything about McCain that was false. I don't agree with McCain on immigration or his horrible campaingn finance reform. Coulter has been over the top. Limbaugh's influence will decrease when he becomes room temperature.BTW...I will vote for McCain over either Dem candidate.

Oh good.

Now Hillary can concentrate on her true calling (replacing Lewisa as lead female of The James Harem)..

Lewisa recently left The James Harem to hone her spiritual side. The James Harem Director has been auditioning replacements (sorry to all the EC.Com chicks (I won't name names).. that auditioned for The James Harem.. and were turned down)..

Anyway, The James Harem Director will be happy to know that Hillary is available for the position..

Thank God for an opening in the James Harem...this New Yorker knew the minute Hillary plopped her bags and hubby in Chappaqua to run for the senate that she wanted the White House again...even though she denied it in all her local speeches. She used this state as a launch pad.

So - surprise, surprise...I'm all for a female President...just not her. And she can take her carpetbags and head back to Arkansas.

While Obama keeps killing Hillary in the various primaries, keep in mind that delegates are doled out proportionately in Democrat primaries, not on a winner-take-all basis......

So, in spite of BO winning the last 8 primaries, his current lead in delegates over Hillary is something like 1,212 - 1,191. The race is still a toss-up.

For the very first time in my life, I did not vote yesterday. The lines were very long in the morning, and the "ice storm" in the afternoon resulted in a 4 hour, 20 minute commute for me (I go 20 miles to work), and I got home long after the polls had closed.

However, ALSO for the very first time in my life, I really didn't and don't care!

A choice of Hillary, Obama or McCain?.....I'm sick of the Clintons; Obama excites me about as much as most of today's music (and he has about as much substance, I'm afraid); and if McCain's elected, we might as well start building Air Force bases in Iraq, or maybe consider the country for our 51st state....it'll be a good base of operations for our next 2-3 wars over there!

Hell, I should consider moving to Canada!

Let me start out by saying that I am *NOT* a Clinton supporter. I think they're both lying politicians. But hey, who isn't in Washington? Anyway, I got the chance to meet her and Bill when he was Prez. They both gave speeches, and while Bill is supremely charismatic (he is a rock star!), she is so extraordinarily brilliant, that it is amazing how her campaign is starting to hit the skids. I never saw a more amazing speech delivered, without a single note or prepared statement, as hers that evening. She probably would make a good president, although I wonder how many voters would pull the lever for her and whether it would be enough to get her past McCain? I have the same questions about Obama, but like Bill, he is a charmer. So who knows?

JohnO...Karl Rove gave a good explanation of why what you're talking about is NOT going to make Texas a fire wall for her...I can't remember the details though. I think Obama is just getting so much momentum. Obama sounds fantastic...but does not say much...Oh yeah, "Let's come together and have change".It seems Hillary is in big trouble though.

"Karl Rove gave a good explanation of why what you're talking about is NOT going to make Texas a fire wall for her..."

That is very possible, but my sense is - Hillary's strategy from the start has been to concentrate on nothing but huge states, to get the most bang for her buck. And it's quite possible that this is going to backfire on her, with Obama's momentum...but a great deal of the states he's winning are traditional Republican areas, where he may not be able to swing it in a general election. We won't know until March 4, when Ohio and Texas are decided. If she loses either, let alone both, Hillary may toss in the towel at that point...and if her supporters don't close ranks and rally around Obama (as is usually the case), he'll have no chance against McCain (and ditto if Hillary wins, regarding BO's supporters).

What's really scaring the living Hell out of me regarding this upcoming election in November is an issue that few in the media (or even those running) appear willing to talk about.....And that is the unknown number of, for want of a better term, "closet racists" and "closet sexists", meaning those who simply, once they're in a voting booth with the curtain drawn, will not pull the level for an African-American candidate or a woman. I suspect there are a lot more of these folks out there than anyone would care to admit....and they may not be showing up at all to vote in the primaries. I'm terrified that they're going to swing the election to McCain, regardless of who ends up as the Demoracts' nominee.

The hype in the media about Democrats being divided is nonsense. Democrats simply have 2 excellent candidates that they're happy with. Whoever gets the nomination, they'll close ranks and rally behind that person.

One thing I don't see you folks talking about it the HUGE disparity in turnout amongst Democrats and Republicans. Democratic turnout is about double what it was in 2004, while Republican turnout is less than it was. THAT's the stat that is most telling to me. Obama is drawing new voters and folks who haven't been turning out lately into the Democratic fold. There's no guarantee they'll stay there, but it doesn't bode well for Republicans.

Pesonally, John McCain strikes me as a mean, hot-tempered, mentally damaged man. Granted, he's been through a lot - POW, cancer, etc., but when I look at him, I see a "ticker" - a bomb waiting to go off. He scares the snot out of me! On paper, I think his policies are way better than any of the other Republicans, but the man himself is not quite right, IMHO. Plus, this is a man who LOVES war, who believes it's the best way to solve our differences with others. 100 years in Iraq?!? C'mon, that's just not sane, is it??

Finally, I like the message that electing Obama and to a lesser extent Hillary sends to the world about who we are as Americans - that the dreams of equality of opportunity aren't just words we wrote on our fancy documents, but something we actually believe in and act on. Isn't it time for the rich, white males to let somebody else have a turn? They've won every race so far, but for the first time in my life, I actually have hope of seeing that streak broken, and personally I'm thrilled!

Doug - I will be equally thrilled IF AND WHEN one of those two is elected. Agree that it'll be a great message.....but I'm skeptical about whether it'll actually happen.

Agree 100% about McCain. And I'm also afraid that the Democrats will make it easy for him to use the typical Republican tactic of divide 'em and scare 'em. (What's scarier for most people than drastic change?....and that's what the Dems represent this time.)

JohnO - "divide 'em and scare'em" - LOL.

I agree, and I can't help but think the looming trial of supposed 9/11 bad guys was awfully conveniently timed, in order to help with that tactic.

You're right - whichever Dem ends up getting the nomination, it's a BIG change for the country already. I hope we're open and optimistic enough not to let fear blind us to our opportunities.
