Raging Right Wing Republican

For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

How is Obama not dominating?

It's the second day of polling post-Biden and he's 45-45 with McCain. He's running in the most pro-Democrat environment that we've seen in decades. The economy is bad, the war is perceived as being a disaster, the media as always is in love with the Democrat candidate and Obama can do no wrong, the current President of the opposing party has an approval rating in the record lows, McCain is almost as loathed by the Republican base as Obama himself, and we've had eight years of Republican rule, which historical trends dictate will swing the country towards the other party.

On one side is Obama, who rides an almost tidal wave of enthusiasm onto the campaign trail, and has more money than God, and then on the other side is McCain, who struggled through the Republican primaries in a campaign that everybody thought was DOA and had go into debt.

How is he not crushing McCain? I can't believe I thought Obama was more threatening than Hillary. This guy is a total buffoon. He's not even that articulate, which is about his only selling point: all he can do is read from a teleprompter; take that away and he mumbles incoherently. Not only that, he's showing his inexperience and getting outmaneuvered politically by McCain at every step; the oil drilling fiasco is one of the latest examples, as well as his "seven house" pathetic attempt to drive class envy into the campaign. If he can't even run a campaign how is he going to run a country?

If this is the best he can do in this environment, then McCain is going to take him to the woodshed come November 3rd.

Four years ago, just after Bush was re-elected, I had a bet with a friend of mine. She was adamant that Hilary Clinton would be the next President of the USA. I was adamant that this could never happen as she's inherently unelectable to the majority of the US. I stated back then in November 2004 that John McCain would be the next President. Still looks like this really could happen.

Should have made it a monetary wager.

What could possibly inspire her to think Hillary would win?

Although I do think she's got a good chance, better than Obama, though Obama is formidable as well.
