Well Romney got Michigan pretty convincingly. This race is really getting interesting to watch. I'm not too sure I'm buying Dick Morris's point tonight that the Republican party is in disarray though. While there seems to be 3 factions right now of economic conservatives, social conservatives, and foreign policy conservatives I think one of two people will be a great uniting force among the Republican voters: Either Obama or Hillary. :D

DBA do you think things will be sorted out by Super Tuesday or do you think things will run until a much later date.

I will still go for McCain verus Obama although I still think McCain is a bit old to serve four or even years. He could serve four years as a stop gap for the next Bush. ;)

My hunch is that the picture will be clearer after Super Tuesday but not settled. If Rudy wins Florida then I think it becomes an even bigger mess. I'm really enjoying watching both races as neither one is anywhere near being decided.

It would be fun if both parties put forward five candidates each and everybody got to vote on which one they wanted to become President in November. Think of all the money that would save.

Oh yes, Independants would be allowed to stand as well.

Simpler, pick 5 from each party, issue claymores (the Scottish type) and the last one standing is the winner. The rest of the cadavers belong to the media to dispose of. Unisex.

"Obama would probably be much further ahead if somebody would tell John Edwards to get out. Edwards isn't going to win this thing and I'm not seeing why he is still hanging around."

Edwards is hoping for the VP slot on the Obama side if he cannot get the nod himself and he is helping Obama take out Hillary. If he drops out it makes it easier for the GOP to target Obama much earlier than if he stays in.

Romney dumped a ton of money into the Michigan campaign, and Rudy is dumping a ton of money in Florida. Each of them needed, or need, a win to keep the money coming in. Rudy will probably take Florida considering the emphasis his campaign has put on that state.

I think TK is spot-on with his assessment of the Demo side.

Not to knock Romney, but didn't he put a ton of money into the Iowa Caucus?
I hope Rudy gets a super flush into the tank in Florida. He's a Lib in disguise anyway.

I heard that a bunch of dems in Mich voted for Romny. They have no delegates to send because they moved the primary and the Dems pulled them. So they voted for Romny to keep him in the race and force Mcain to spend more money and hopefully run out early. It appears they would rather see the election agasint anyone but Mcain because of his ability to pull in swing voters. Think back tot he issue here of having to declare a party.

John Edwards maybe staying in the race for ego, future speaking fee$ and definitely to spite the the Clintons, but he can hope in one hand and defecate in the other to see which one gets filled first with regards to the number 2 spot but there's still NO way he'll get the VP nod again in '08 for ANY nominee. Tdown:

Edwards and Obama are both more liberal/left of Hillary (and that's waaaaaay left). So he wouldn't bring anything to the broaden the ticket appeal for Barack. Besides he's the emptiest of empty suits, he couldn't even get re-elected to a second term to the Senate in his home state if he wanted to and as the VP nominee in '04 he couldn't even deliver his home state of North Carolina to John Kerry. clap:

Whether it's Hillary of Obama they'll look for somebody more moderate to fill the VP spot like Evan Bayh or Bill Richardson, or someone with an impressive military back ground. wink:

I agree with you that Edwards is a tool, he and Kerry make up a hardware store. These democrats here voted for them thatmakes them tool sheds.

Dan, Romney doesn't have to have the money coming in. He can write a check for the whole thing if he wants to. Rudy is having some money troubles and I'm not sure he is gonna make it. The last stand for him is Florida, if he doesn't win it I think he has to get out. Romney will struggle in S. Carolina as will Rudy and McCain, they don't have the right accents. Huckabee and Thompson will be close and probably finish 1-2 in S.Carolina.

"You didn't vote for ANYBODY Queen... "

Sure I did Webo GW. I pulled my voter reg this July. This states majority went for Kerry Edwards there is no hope for it. You idiot liberals are in charge. Now the idiotsof this state show a nealy 60% preference for Obama. A guy who has only passed one piece of legislation in his time in office. But hey he is an new idea guy and presents himself well.

If the news media had it's way, the LIBERAL media that is, they would have handed a death sentence to Romney if he didn't win MI. A death sentence to Huckabee if he didn't win Iowa, and now they are predicting if Juliani loses in Florida he's a goner. . This all brings up a central question to their campaign coverage. Why isn't anyone handing down death sentences to the Dems that don't win? Seems they're never out of it. And, why even after McCain's loses is he still the guy they keep propping up even after his losses? wink:

Huh? That's weird Ff... 'cause the CORPORATE media doesn't give Edwards the time of day? They've written him off completely already.

BUT... they still talk about Rudy quite a bit even though he hasn't won a damned thing! Hell, he hasn't even finished top 4 anywhere!

Face it... the FOR PROFIT media sensationalizes the "battle between the black guy and the woman" 'cause it really drives up the ratings... which translates into more advertising dollars!

Same on the GOP side. It's an obviously fluid race with NO clear front-runner... so by hyping the drama between the 4 main candidates, again ratings go up... cash registers ring! Even FAUX News does it. :eek:

Someday you'll take a break from that bizarre super-mega-ultra-conservative world you live in and start to see REALITY for what it REALLY is my friend. Tup:

Sorry jabb... err I mean Skorzeny... I didn't realize I was bein' clever. clown:

I didn't 'out' Plunker out of malice... I'm just glad he's still here. Tup:

Ya know... I didn't REALLY out him at all... the liberal media did! In fact, he wasn't covert to begin with so the whole thing is just much ado about nuthin'! Bruce will commute my sentence either way! :D

So Webo are you saying that Brian Willams blog admission that the NBC news Director in charge of covering Obamba admitted to him that he was biased, was all to pump up the ratings and sell ads? Its hard to imagine that someone could not be biased and still be successful selling advertising specifically with a finite audiance and limted players. I suppose that P&G would never adveretise on Oprah because of her bias?

What I'm sayin' is SURE... everybody has their own personal baises. But WHAT does that have to do with the way these elections are being covered? Do you think somehow NBC is sendin' "vote for Obama" subliminal messages through the TV? Has the network come out and officially endorsed a Democratic candidate? NO!

Brian Williams has publicly admitted to listening to Rush Limbaugh... so what? He doesn't make the decisions as to what makes air... the editorial staff and management do.

Sensationalism SELLS! EVERY major media outlet, whether it be television, radio or print is owned by a large conglomerate who is ultimately beholdin' to their shareholders. With the advent of 24 hr cable news channels and the Internet... network TV and large newspapers are losing market share and therefore money. They do what they do to make money... bottom line!

I look at it this way: The right-wing Kool-Aid swillers are ALWAYS bitchin' about the "Liberal media."
The left-wing loons are ALWAYS bitchin' about the "corporate media."

Since the extremists from BOTH sides are perpetually unhappy... I figure that overall... the impartiality and politcal balance of the "media" is probably right where it's supposed to be. Tup:
