While I normally love presidential politics, I feel somewhat...blah, I guess about this year's pool of candidates. Hillary would be interesting, except that she's been around since I was a teenager. McCain, ditto.
I propose that we have a boxing tournament.
Obama v. Edwards for the Democrats.
Mit v. Huckabee for the Republicans.
Winners duke it out in November. Any takers?
This one seems pretty easy to answer in my mind...
Obama takes edwards easily but Hillary isn't dead yet... she could definitely still win the nomination.
I see McCain winning in New Hampshire which would all but kill Mitt Romney. Then it will be interesting because Huckabee is up in several more of the early states like south carolina... plus I supposed guiliani is still viable... we will see
A McCain/Hillary campaign would be great. Two heavyweights. I think McCain would have it easier against Hillary than in the primaries. I just don't understand why right-wingers have such a problem w/McCain.
As far as Hillary, I think she's got all the votes she's every going to get right now. She will not change a single mind, but it could be enough if the Republican turn out is lower than '04.
well a lot of people think his campaign finance reform law violates the 1st amendment... I tend to agree.
I really think that a McCain/Huckabee (or vice versa) ticket is a great idea and would have a very good shot at beating any of the democratic tickets... but its still really early.
No doubt, McCain/Huckabee would be tough.
Edwards/Obama would be tough, too.
Idk it seems that edwards and obama are both fighting for the same group (the more liberal)
Maybe a clinton/edwards would be better?
Hillary is still Hillary. Clinton/Clinton (Hill/Bill) perhaps, but people either lover her or hate her, everyone loves Bill. I don't think most voters intuitively connect Edwards/Obama. Yes, they're lawyers, but I don't know if most voters know that. Edwards is the charming Southern guy, and Obama is the Puff Daddy of Democratic politics (at the moment). Or is it PDiddy now? Don't underestimate looks.
Good news today. The Clintons attempt to disenfranchise thousands of poor workers in Nevada was thrown out of Court by the Federal Judge. Fitting since it was three members of Clinton's campaign committee who drew up the rules last March that were then approved by the Democratic Party. Seems the Culinary Worers Union threw a monkey wrench into Slick Willie's plans.
I have a soft spot for Hillary but the hatred she engenders from both the far left and far right will probably kill her chances of winning the presidency, if not the primary. And, actually, I know plenty of Independents that loathe her too (although none seem to be able to articulate exactly why).
I will support Obama and hope that he wins the presidency. Especially with neanderthals like Huckabee doing so well on the Republican side.

Will Obama go 2 for 2? Probably not, but possible. Hillary probably, but closer than the experts think.McCain or Mit? Huckabee will make it tighter than most think even though it is NH. McCain & Mit split the top vote, so Huckabee will be a close 3rd.

Hey All,Who do you think will win the Iowa Caucuses in both parties? Looks like the Democratic race in IA will come down to Clinton, Obama, and Edwards. Looks like the GOP race in IA will come down to Huckabee and Romney. MY PREDICTIONS FOR...

It was a bad new/ good news scene for me yesterday. I find out the famous Obama girl didn't even bother to vote on Super Tuesday, but in finding this out I found a gem showing why we should get Hucklebee into the White House. You won't even remember Obama girl after Huckabee Girl.this link...

Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in the next presidential election?Given that Romney is the front-runner, perhaps it's worth pondering.

What does everybody think about John McCain choice of Sarah Pahlin as his Vice Presidential pick?My feeling is that she might be a bit too parochial with too little experience. That my feeling. However, I admit I don't know much about her right now. Does anyone? Perhaps upon learning more about...

If the election was held tomorrow would you vote for Obama, or anyone else, and why?Television news outlets always like to ask the question if the election was held tomorrow, would voters reelect the current President or someone else. I am curious to see how the people of HubPages would vote, whom...
