So, what's going on with presidential politics these days? The Republican frontrunner, Mitt Romney drops out, McCain becomes the favorite. The highly touted Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani are virtually no shows.
[Dan Carlin picked Giuliani as the Republican winner in Common Sense 109. At least his candidate actually was in the race. Bush didn't even voice an opinion on candidates, a nearly unprecedented event, and consequently no one from his presidency stepped forward to run. So no Condi vs. Hillary in 2008. Ah, well. ]
McCain is probably the only Republican running that could loose to Hillary.
Obama and Clinton can't play nice in the sandbox, and the Democrat voters can't decide which one of them they really want to support. My money is still on Hillary, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. Like the Republican field, half of the Democrat candidates have dropped out already.
Hillary is probably the only Democrat running that could loose to McCain.
It's like a game of Whack a Mole, or Whack a Weasel.
[another nod to Dan Carlin (110, 111) for giving the candidates their proper mascot. Weasels is what they are, when they change their opinions about any policy issue depending on what audience they are in front of; and 9/10's of the candidates do this without blushing]
The candidate's head pops up, and they get smacked down again. Except we'll probably still end up having to choose between weasels when it comes to the major parties. I'm not sure how two such unpopular people could ever get this far in a beauty contest like the presidential election.
Here's hoping that the rumors about Ron Paul are correct. At least I'll still have someone to vote for then.
