Everyone else was crowing about RUUUUUUUUUDY and Fred and diamond had a lot of man love for Mitt, and so on.

But suddenly, when faced with the prospect of a hillbilly being beaten by every Democrat on the ticket, everyone is changing their tune.

I am not sure if you feel I have thrown McCain under the bus or not. He is the reason I became a Republican in 2000. I do believe he has taken unpopular stances on many an issue. Even when I disagree with him, it does not bother me because there is something about the man that makes me able to tolorate the news.

What I find insane is how he can kiss the right wing of the party's ass. It sickens me. I liked that he stood up to them in 2000. I suppose it is the price for winning.

I am no longer a Republican. I would like to see him get the nomination over any of the other candidates on the republican side.

I never really got the sense that you were strongly in anyone's corner this time around so I actually didn't think of you when making the post.

Are you decided?

I always liked and respected McCain as well even when I disagreed with him.

And I too was disappointed by his sucking up to the right wing.

Dems: Obama
GOP: Huckabee pulls an upset

Couldn't be happier with that.

If Hillary manages to come in second

it will be considered a huge win for her

and perhaps - deservedly so.

I think Edwards will hang on to win, with Clinton in second and Obama in third.

For the Republicans, looks like it will be close between Huckabee and Romney, although something tells me Huckabee will win comfortably.

If the early results hold, you'll be dead on.

Yeah, CNN just projected Huckabee as the winner.

Obama has moved into the lead.

Huckabee takes it. LOL.

Mitt, Mitt, Mitt.

They're interviewing Mitt right now on FNC. You can tell just by looking at him that he's stunned and uncomfortable, and you can all but see the sweat beads rolling down his face.

I love the evangelicals showing up in huge numbers and sticking it to the Republican establishment. Wow, schadenfreude is so delightful!

These caucuses are interesting, but I can't wait for my state of NH to put its stamp on this election.

They just said on CNN the turnout of evangelicals in Iowa is twice what it was last time — and they're voting for Huckabee. Romney didn't get the Christian vote like he claimed he would.
