Neither does the Republican Establishment
they hate him - and I think would rather have a Dem in the Whitehouse

They feel the same way about Huckabee

The GOP establishment - big money, is going for Rudy or Mitt

that is right, they would rather have Mitt than McCain.

I'd say you're right, and that drives me insane. I am absolute convinced that unless we nominate McCain, we're going down in November. The base may like Mitt or Fred or whoever else they see as being more conservative than McCain, and that's fine, but they won't win, especially against Obama. Everyday on Rush I hear callers- lifelong Republicans- who say they won't vote for McCain if he's the nominee.

Are we trying to lose?

Yeah, but what do you think about it? That was the question.

I think it's a damn shame. But I have faith. He'll find that story. He's dedicated. Just believe.

Age is a number. John McCain is younger than many people half his age. The same could be said of his Mother who indeed has more energy than half of the nominees running.

Sorry, that should work better, there was a number missing at the end

It's about Democrats being encouraged to vote for Romney in Michigan. In a way I think it's a wicked idea, but at the same time could be risky...

(I want the Dems to win the election, in case that wasn't clear)

Most likely the lead story on Kos

Obama is scary.

It appears that McCain may have dropped well behind Romney in the polls as the Mitchell Research has Romney on top by 6 points now. But I guess it was to be expected when your able to outspend your oponent by more than 10 to 1. The Weather is another factor that could keep independents and democrats at home. If McCain is unable to beat Romney here, the race becomes a lot more muddled. A McCain victory here would set him up for a win in South Carolina on Saturday which would essentially set him up to win the nomination.

Either way, it will be interesting to see how this race impacts South Carolina where a new poll by Rasmussen has McCain out on top by 9 points!

Keep in mind though that the polls had Obama ahead by double digits in NH, so I don't know how much stock we can put in the poll numbers anymore.

Well, Mitchell Research has predicted the Michigan primary accurately since 1992 so they do have a good track record. But hopefully this time they will get it wrong.

Why are they going for Rudy? Isn't he even not considered conservative enough?
