i love seeing religious bigotry come back to bite the GOP in the ass.

he's your only shot to win, so if i wanted another GOP term, i'd be happy with this too.

looks like a dogfight for the Dems. i wonder if the Clintons have anything else up their sleeves in regards to Obama.

Obama projected to win, according to CNN.

McCain doesn't want to go up against Obama.

Obama is after the independents the same way. Except he's younger, better looking, has LOADS more money and is able to get young people and first time voters out to the polls in absolutely astonishing numbers.

McCain is hoping for Hillary, you better believe it.

Since Huckabee doesn't have much anywhere else, I think he's basically done regardless of if he wins or loses tonight. I think it will come down to McCain or Giuliani, and whether or not Rudy's strategy works. If it does, Rudy. If it doesn't, McCain.

If all goes according to plan, McCain emerges.
Mark this down, kids. I'm (mostly) agreeing with 2861. Though I think Rudy is done for.

I really hope McCain gets the Republican nomination. It would be a more honest race that way. He's by far the most qualified out of any of the Republicans, and pretty much the only one I respect out of the bunch (save his shameless kiss-assery of the far right).

It's not looking good for Hillary. Fighting for second place with Edwards.






Obama/Edwards 2008?

i do wonder if Romney isn't going to start swinging way, way to the right to shore up the conservatives who loathe McCain.

and Mexicans are going to be Mitt's big old pinata.

but, yeah, the story tonight is Huck. karma's a bitch, isn't it GOPers? you say religion matters, and you get a candidate who has NOTHING but his religion. at least Bush knows he's an idiot. with Huck, i'm not so sure.

Easy there. Even if she finishes third, mere percentage points behind Edwards, it doesn't mean anything yet.

Now if Obama beats her here in NH as well, then I think she's in major trouble.

And it isn't true that Huckabee will win nothing else.

I can see him moving out to South Carolina and singing gospel songs with his guitar. He can absolutely take that state.

Obama 37 to 30 a piece with the other two.

This is pretty impressive.

And if McCain were to become President, I wouldn't have to kill myself or move to Canada.

It just keeps getting more interesting.

I agree about New Hampshire, but I think this really damages her. She was supposed to be the inevitable choice. Now she's third. This will slow down momentum in New Hampshire.

Plus, there's more independents in New Hampshire. That's Obama's strong point.
