before I say anything I want to dispell the assuption that I am a Democrat. I have voted Democratic in more elections than I have voted Republican to date, I am even registered as a Democrat, but I remain independant of any political party. Here is how I veiw both parties: Republicans: Get your message from on high and repeat the party line. Drum that line into the public psyche until it resonates. To hell with subtle differences to hell with the truth even. Demodrats: Like kiddie sports everybody wins. Everybody gets their say, no cohesive message. I coould go on I suppose but no matter. Suffice it to say that Mr McCain was a viable candidate for me until he got excited and ran himself out of the race. Oh yeah also when he chose Ms Palin as a running mate and it was obvious he knew little about her. That said, I have voted Republican, not much but I've done it. Now to my question Who is going too win. Not who you or I want to win, but who's going to? Let's step back and look at it like a sporting event of sorts. Predictions Here's mine so far Obama The republicans are fucking up in the public square wiht the jobs bill, holding gov hostage with the debt ceiling etc Thoughts?
