anyway, back on topic. and i'm not going to stray any more in this thread, i do promise.

i honestly have no idea what's going to happen tomorrow night. i do have the sneaking suspicion that Hillary will prevail -- and i think she'd be foolish not to put him on the ticket if she does, doesn't matter that he's from a strategically insignificant state, the dude raised $38m in January alone -- and i think McCain may just take it from Romney. but i can see any formulation of the top 4.

Zogby: Tied in NJ
Zogby: Obama +17 in GA
Zogby: Obama +5 in MO
Zogby: Obama +6 in CA
Strategic Vision: Obama +22 in GA
Gallup: Clinton +1 national poll
CBS: Tied national poll

I still don't know who I'm voting for tomorrow. I change my mind hour to hour. I'm one of those people they could poll and I'd say one thing and do another.

I am pumped up for my first presidential vote tomorrow. I think McCain's up by about 20 points here.

Eight years ago, I remember how excited I was to cast my first vote in a presidential race. I voted for compassionate conservatism. I voted for Bush. A lot has happened in my life since then, and I won't go into it all here. Suffice it to say though, I am completely cured of any loyalty I ever felt to the Republican party.

I wasn't able to vote in 04 because getting all of the necessary paperwork together to vote absentee while being a Peace Corps volunteer ended up being too much. But I'll never forget walking into work the day of the elections. My African colleagues all eagerly asked me if I had voted (against Bush) and were horrified to learn that I hadn't completed the formalities in time. I'll never forget what they said to me. "You have to vote! The outcome of this will affect all of us around the world, but we have no voice. You have to be our voice. You must vote."

Four years later, I'm glad to be able to make my voice heard.

I'll be voting absentee in person on Saturday (my parents as well), all 3 of us for Obama. We'll see the man himself, along with Sen. Clinton that night.

Tuesday is the Chesapeake Primary, VA/MD/DC. Depending on how NOVA goes, that should be a good day for Obama.

I'm not sure who my mom is going to vote for. My dad has always admired McCain, and my older brother realizes McCain is the most electable, so they'll vote for him. I don't think my mom is sold, though. She listens to Rush everyday and (unlike myself) has taken to heart what he has said about McCain. I bet she goes Romney.

No, just because someone may be relatively unpopular in the opinion polls during part of their Presidency does not mean that will remain so years later.

Funny, because your analysis of what I said could not be more simplistic and unsophisticated.

I never said Iraq and Afghanistan were the same country, I said their fundamental problems in developing government, economy, the military, and security were similar. I never said Bush was Truman, I only mentioned the fact that being unpopular at the end of their Presidency because of a war, did not mean that their popularity and the view of the war would remain the same years later.

There is a VAST difference between Truman's relationship to WWII and Bush's relationship to this current war. There is also a vast difference between the two wars, so once again, your analogy fails.

If the latest Zogby poll for the Republican primary in California is correct....

02/01 - 02/03

Romney 40%
McCain 32%
Huckabee 12%
Paul 5%

...it looks like Romney is going to take California. Romney has also pulled within 3 points of McCain in Tennessee. McCain still has the lead in most places, but this new Zogby poll for California is a big surprise after the heavy lead McCain had established.

The war in question is NOT World War II. It was called the Korean War(1950 to 1953). Truman's unpopularity at the end of his term was do to the country's involvement and Trumans handling of the Korean War which was essentially a Civil War between the North And the South in a relatively poor country.
