Clinton Bounces Off the Ropes, McCain Busts Through the Gates
So here we are again, HRC's clever little tearfest helping her immensely in New Hampshire, and John McCain becoming the latest "inevitable" candidate for the Republicans. At this point I am concerned about Mitt Romney... he has the funds, the intelligence, and the political savvy to become president, but Republican primary voters have opted for less impressive candidates at both major opening votes. Mike Huckabee's comment regarding Romney seeming more like somebody's boss than their coworker hit painfully close to home for the former Massachusetts governor. Perhaps the most concerning thing thus far in the primary season is the quiet campaign of Rudy Giuliani. He's been trounced in Iowa and New Hampshire, but is quietly laying the groundwork for a huge Super Tuesday surprise. If Giuliani wins the nomination, then the Republicans have lost the general before it has even begun, no matter the Democratic candidate.

I don't know about you Chucko, but I'm thoroughly confused at this point. I trust McCain to fight the war on terror, but not so much on taxes and immigration. Huckabee is right on abortion but not much else. In spite of money and organization, people don't seem to like Romney. I like Rudy on almost everything except abortion and gay marriage. So what's a conservative to do. I say, let's get behind Fred Thompson and hope he shows some desire to be president.

Hehehe yeah... Fred is probably the best candidate, unfortunately. He's a good guy, smart, witty, but he's not going to win in November. We'll call it "Dole Syndrome." The media would have a field day with him. People don't seem to like Romney, but he may be our only hope.
