I have my bucks on Obama. But I felt last night's debate was not his best performance.

At the moment it seems that Clinton will strongly win Pennsylvania, but I still think that Obama will pull through in the end.

John McCain will win the important thing.

Namely, the Presidency.

(Nobody wants to be the Presidential nominee of the Democratic National Committee anyway.)

Ideology aside, the Democrats are giving McCain an easy enough time of it with their infighting.

That I can't debate. In my opinion Clinton should just give in.

I think so, too.

Of course, McCain has his own baggage. But Hillary's grandstanding sort of cancels that out in a way.  Tongue

I really don't like anyone running, to be honest. I am not enthused to vote for my first time this year.

Yes. I don't know who that is, though.  Tongue

John McCain would, possibly, have been my second choice of all the primary candidates in all three parties I follow (Democrat, Libertarian, Republican).  As such, I'm not too disappointed.

I think Obama will win, but I wouldn't count Hillary out yet.  She might be able to pull some trick at the convention and pull ahead.   She did win both Florida and Michigan, neither of which is included in the delegate count.

Honestly, I don't think it matters much who wins the Democratic nomation.  Their platforms are so similar that there won't likely be much difference when they put their policies through the congress.   Neither of them has much governmental experience either, the campaign slogans of Hillary not withstanding.  My main concern is their protectionist language.  I hope neither of them would be so foolish if elected.

As for John McCain, I kind of like him.  He seems independent minded, and he doesn't foam at the mouth when immigration issues are raised.   He was the best Republican candidate who has a serious chance of winning.  So, I won't be disappointed if he wins. 

But like Shaz, I'm not especially enthused about this election.
