Obama vs Romney

That's what I was thinking in the middle of January, and that's what it will probably be.

Too many Democrats don't trust Hillary or Bill.
Too many Republicans don't trust McCain.

If I would have blogged it when I first came to this conclusion, it would have seemed more prophetic...

I've been predicting Hillary versus McCain since October. Obama is the wunderkind for enthusiastic change, but his message has few details that people can hold onto and older people look for facts not feelings. Unless if he can turn out the young vote in historical numbers, his time is running short. In the end, McCain's vice presidental running mate will determine the general election outcome. There is a lot of talk about Huckabee or Lieberman.

Well, I guess we know you don't have the ability to foretell the future, Steve. Too many Republicans didn't trust Romney, and there were too many key Republican primaries where "moderates" and "independents" (non-Republicans) were able to vote for the guy they like, McCain. I'm not happy about McCain being the nominee, but I don't see Huckabee surging from behind in the next few primaries, and the libertarian candidate of the kooks and the confused and digruntled conservative, Ru Paul, never stood a chance. So it looks like it'll be McCain. Against whom? Clinton or Obama? I can't say for sure, but I do hope Bill Clinton's husband doesn't get back into the White House. Eight years of The Clinton Show was much more purgatorial fire than I'd like to experience this side of the Eschaton. It would be nice if a completely inexperienced and obviously unqualified junior senator were able to kill the candidacy of the venal and corrupt Clinton team.

After reading about his record cross-party support, and hearing the quote -
"CBS News RAW": Speaking in Madison, Wis. after winning three states in the Potomac Primary, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., paid specific thanks to the Republicans who support him."
- I think I've underestimated the amount of dislike people have for the Clintons. Also, his tag as being the most liberal senator in Congress won't hurt the Republican party too much, either.
