If John McCain gets nominated and the election is focused on national security, he will not do well, considering that most Americans are against the genocide in Iraq and John McCain is the most hawkish of candidates out there.

If it is on the economy it will be very close I think.


his area of expertise is foreign policy, and he has no problem bludgeoning his opposition with cries of, "YOU JUST HATE THE TROOPS IS ALL!!!"

it's still effective. horrible, unfair, and shameless. but effective.

he's not nearly as conversant in economic matters.

I agree. Why else would he bow out before Super Tuesday?

I think this is a pre-emptive strike at Clinton, by dropping out now and throwing his support behind Obama. Between this and the Kennedy endorsements, I think Obama does very well next week, and then will thank Edwards by offering the VP.

That's what I heard reported yesterday- that he would be a likely Attorney General choice.

Obama has done a lot of great work with the poor especially in Southside Chicago fighting payday lenders, which is a big issue for me

Obama? At least he seems less pro-war than Clinton. But he's got that weird Donnie, the Former Gay touring with him. :shudder:

Never say never.

If Obama wins the nomination, and Edwards wasn't the VP nominee, who would you think is the most logical choice then?

seems - may be the right word

and you are picking up on his (Republican - light) pandering


http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la...ck=1&cset=true

Quote:
Barack Obama: Opposed invading Iraq; has voted as senator to authorize war funding;
would begin withdrawal of troops within 16 months
and leave some troops to protect diplomats and prevent Al Qaeda gaining a "foothold." Wants no permanent military bases in Iraq; would launch aggressive regional diplomatic efforts to stabilize the region, isolate Al Qaeda and support Iraqi reconciliation; favors financial support for Iraqi reconstruction and humanitarian aid.





Hillary Rodham Clinton: Voted to authorize Iraq invasion in 2002. Has three-step plan to end war,
begin phased troop withdrawal within 60 days of taking office;
would redeploy some troops to ensure regional stability and convene group of key allies, global powers and states bordering Iraq to stabilize Iraq and the region.

he will suffer from the same perception that W did in 2000


he will need a heavy-weight for gravitas


Edwards is wrong.

Richardson would be a better pick.
