Knew that way before Bob Lonsberry.
Yes he can!
(His opponent is a Liberal himself and the American people always choose a D Liberal over an R Liberal.)
We have a standoff. McCain is doing everything possible to not win.
I agree. This is not looking good for the Demos.
Not true. McLaim just sealed it for him yesterday with this Climate Change speech. I've already contacted his headquarters to pull my support. I refuse to vote for the man. Did anybody hear his speech yesterday? It might as well been Gore up there spewing that garbage. I'm out!
Good summary, but I wish the author would have kept this secret! It seems we’re the only ones who really know this.../sarc
Wrong, he can and WILL win. How many Conservatives are staying home? How many here are planning on not voting at all? How many are planning to vote for a third party? How many simply WILL NOT, under any circumstances vote for McCain.
He can and WILL win with this defeatist attitude that seems to be permeating the US.
I figured I would vote for McCain and have supported those who thought like me that it was the best for the nation, our economy, and our troops.
Except for the troops and perhaps, MAYBE, the supreme court nominations that will be sure to come there will be no difference in the two.
We are so screwed right now I am tempted to just throw a vote at Barr as a slap in the face to the RNC and hunker down to wait this sh** storm out.
HILLARY CLINTON can’t win.
It’s not that complex, really. SHE just can’t win.
A candidate who can’t win over HER OWN party certainly can’t win over the country.
The traits and flaws which make HER an unacceptable candidate to roughly a third of Democrats will make HER an unacceptable candidate to a majority of Americans.
And that’s how you lose elections.
All of this could be said about Hillary Clinton also. As the presumptive front-runner, who entered this election cycle with many advantages, she found herself in the struggle of her political life in this campaign. And her already high negatives have gotten worse, even among Democrats, in this campaign.
Maybe the Democrat year of 2008 just won’t be that friendly to Democrats after all.
Bob doesn’t consider Johnson liberal? Interesting. I should note though that, of his “four” liberal presidents, one served twice as many terms as a president can currently serve.
You underestimate the ennui generated by the GOP candidate. The voters won’t turn out. See, Bush 1992, Dole 1995, the Congress 2006... Obama has an excellent chance.
. A candidate who can’t win over his own party certainly can’t win over the country.
Then hillereeee wouldn’t win either? She hasn’t won over her own party either.
I think that’s why Hillary is staying in. If it ain’t Hillary as candidate, the Repubs are going to win this one.
Pubbies might very well win regardless.
The surest way that we will lose, is if Hilly and Obama put aside their differences and run together as Pres/VP. Then all the Dems will unite behind the ticket and they will win.
But John McCain can sure as Hell lose....
What if they had an election and nobody voted?
Talk about getting it bass-akwards.
Well, by that logic, McCain can't win either. ;)
Though his point is valid - the "JFK Democrat" McCain will appeal to a much broader audience than the "60's Counterculture Democrat" Obama.
I agree. He will most likely win by a decent percentage to boot. Although they are split in the primaries, they will band together in main election. Obama commands amazing support. McCain does not. A simple walk around any mall shows lots of stores selling Obama shirts and other gear. There were a couple Hillary shirts, and no McCain anything. It looks like we will be dealing with an Obama presidency. Let’s just hope we can at least control one half of Congress.
