    Long story short, we've lost two presidential candidates in a mere two days...One of which was the national frontrunner only a year ago or so!

    So yeah, my intent for this topic is to continue general political discussion. Yayz. However, the most important question is...Just who is left?!


    ~~~Democratic Primary~~~

    Hillary Clinton (Junior New York Senator)

    Maurice ("Mike") Gravel (former Alaska Senator)

    Barack Obama (Junior Illinois Senator)


    ~~~Republican Primary~~~

    Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas Governor

    John McCain, Senior Arizona Senator

    Ron Paul, Texas representative

    Willard ("Mitt") Romney, former Mass. governor

    Discuss...

    2/6/2008 Update: Mccain wins big in the West and Northeast, while Clinton and Obama struggle to overcome one-another. Huckabee and Romney split the "hardcore conservative" vote, and allow McCain the room he needs to _almost_ clinch the nomination.

    Eh, I feel the same way. Although he has no realistic shot at the nomination, Ron Paul is "generally" (I have my reservations about the man) a solid alternative to the other three.

    As for the general election, I predict that I will be voting-and campaigning for-John McCain.

    It's interesting, though. On the AOL straw poll, Edwards dropping out led directly to Obama gaining about 6 states. I get the feeling that the Edwards supporters are generally people who hate Hilary, but liked Edwards better than Obama.

    Alan Keyes was "never" in it. Gravel is still listed.

    RE Clay: it's interesting to compare Giuliani's strategy to Edwards. BOTH of them in my opinion want positions as Attorney General, but here's how they're handling it...

    Edwards: is NOT endorsing anyone because he really wants to _force_ one of them to give him a cabinet position.

    Giuliani: immediately endorsed McCain due to his inevitability; Rudy "knows" he'll get the position if McCain wins the general election.

    "Willard"? His name is Willard? Ewwwww.

    I had to misforture of hearing Keyes speak years ago.
    He definitely was never "in it"

    but think about... if a female pres. had a mood swing or something she might do something bad - oh,I dunno -declare war? Blow up EARTH!?!?!? :lol: I think I'm carrying it out of proportion (just a little)
