Presidential Campaigns… OVER

2 12 2008

In retrospect, it was probably a really smart decision not to touch the entire on the Presidential Race.  That probably would have just caused a colossal mess with lots of blood and tears.  Heck, I don’t want to be the one that has to clean up to the dead bodies and disconnected appendages that are always lying around in the wake of a political argument.

Suffice it to say that I was an Obama supporter, I had good opinions of both Biden and McCain, and everyone on McCain’s Campaign staff should quit politics because they made clear at every chance possible that they had no clue what they were doing.  Apparently they thought taking Bush’s strategy and going more conservative with a less conservative candidate in a leftward-shifting country was the right way to go.  No comment on Sarah Palin.

Barack Obama the true winner of Texas?

NewsIt seems I may have been a little quick to corner the Democrats for supposed Satanic activity. As the results of the Ohio and Texas primaries rolled, a collective “Wha?” could be heard across the country. Someone’s sneaky little plans are finally working out for them and an abnormally large amount of people seem completely oblivious.

In a twist only made possible due to the present bizarre circumstances, many Republicans have started fighting dirty in an attempt to hijack the Presidential elections. Reports across both Ohio and Texas indicate that unreasonably large numbers of Democratic primary votes were pouring in from high-density Republican areas. This finally exposed a hole in the two-party system that should have been destroyed years ago; because the primaries aren’t party exclusive, supporters of John McCain can actually choose to vote in the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton. But why would they do this?

Because John McCain had already all but clinched the Republican nomination, a vote for him seemed a wasted vote. However, recent polls have suggested Barack Obama would win the Presidency over John McCain, but Hillary Clinton would not. Therefore, basic logic says to vote for Hillary in the Democratic primary so that she can earn the Democratic nomination and ultimately lose to John McCain.

In my previous post, I stated a Democrat would win the Presidency unless something significant and unforeseen occurred. Who would have thought that it would have happened mere hours later? It seems that some Republican supporters are demons after all, leaving speculation as to whether there is a God-loving candidate left. Mike Huckabee? Oh wait… darn, he’s out…

I swear that if the Democratic party doesn’t see through this and allows Hillary Clinton to go on (even though it’s near impossible anyway) and lose the John McCain, they deserve the loss.





Over before it begins

NewsAs much as we wouldn’t want to admit it, Super Tuesday may be the end of the Presidential Race. There has been a lot of news about which Democrat is ahead among the Democrats and which Republican is ahead among the Republicans, but there has been little news on who’s ahead between the Democrats and Republicans. If elections and Iraq War’s approval ratings are any indication, the country may be swinging Democrat plenty enough to make the final election merely symbolic.

It’s rather unfortunate that this is the case. Our two-party system and the clear similarities between John McCain and George W. Bush nearly preclude him from being considerable. Assuming he wins the nomination over Mitt Romney, it’s hard to imagine the U.S. as it is now voting a majority for him.

This leaves us with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the remaining Democratic candidates. Depending on how Super Tuesday goes, either candidate could have nearly enough delegates to secure the nomination. If previous primaries are any indication, though, it could also be an extremely tight race simply for the Democratic nomination. People say they’re not getting involved in the presidential race yet because it’s too early. Any longer and it might be too late.
