    Stupid Comment
    Gregory Morris, 3/11/08 11:59:28 am
    Chris Dodd says to just give half of the Florida and Michigan votes to each candidate. Senator, I hate to tell you, but that solves absolutely nothing. Hillary won, but only because Obama got screwed over. There are three obvious ways to handle this: count the existing votes, don't count any, or allow a re-vote.

    I seriously doubt they'll count the votes, since they said they wouldn't and Democrats would never flip-flop on important issues likes this.
    They can't just not count the votes though, since that wouldn't be fair and the Socialists Democrats are always fair.
    A re-vote would be costly, and probably cause a number of other problems which would be hard to overcome.

    I have a better idea: Ultimate Steel Cage Death Match between the candidates!!! Just award each state a lower number of delegates. Give the candidates something explicit to fight about: what percentage of the votes these two states should get. That way, since the primary election is extremely close, it will give Obama and Clinton better focus for tearing each other to shreds while McCain has all the time in the world to parade around and convince people to like him.

    "That way, since the primary election is extremely close, it will give Obama and Clinton better focus for tearing each other to shreds while McCain has all the time in the world to parade around and convince people to like him."

    McCain is going to need all the time he can get, because he's not going to convince a lot of people who feel abandoned by the (liberal)Republican Party.

    Honestly, I think the close race/bickering is going to be good for the Democratic Party. General elections tend to be mostly name recognition and what better way to have your name out there than to have both of your major candidates in the news CONSTANTLY? All press is good press and as long as there is competition in the Dem race and none in the Rep race, McCain's name will only be mentioned in passing (does it even get mentioned at all, anymore?). Plus, as they trash each other, all of their history gets vetted and there is nothing left to attack by the Republicans. Finally, the more the Democrat candidates are in the news, the more their issues get heard. That means more press for universal healthcare. That means more press for "fixing the mess in Iraq." That means more press time for global warming. And that means more press time for gun control. The longer their battle, the worse it can possibly be for the Republicans, in my humble opinion.

    I still haven't heard a peep from the Democratic candidates about gun control. The issue (rightly) terrifies them. In fact, at one point Clinton attacked Obama for being too tough about gun control. Otherwise, you make good points.

    The thing is, Hillary can do a lot of damage. That's how the Clinton machine works. They didn't have the same level of Democratic competition last time they ran, so they are definitely going to fight dirtier, which leaves McCain looking a lot cleaner. I think McCain has positioned himself on the higher ground already. He's difficult to attack, except by his own party who find him too liberal but would rather eat dirt than vote for either of the Socialists running. Just because the Dems are getting "vetted" right now doesn't mean McCain won't have reason to drag them through it again later. Hillary still has a lot of skeletons in her closet, and once Obama starts getting called out on the fact that he has virtually no resume, I think his image as "the messiah" will quickly vanish, unless he starts performing miracles.

    As for the Dems' talking points... the MSM is still part of the Clinton machine and will parrot socialist views regardless. If the Dem race wasn't close, nothing would really change there. McCain has the chance now to quietly build up his political allies and capital. If McCain is smart (and like him or not, he is) he'll be digging in on the high ground, and preparing to destroy whoever survives the DNC.
