This is How I Felt About Gerard Kennedy

Mind you, Iggynation wasnt exactly any better...

I have to admit, nothing sounds more presumptous and elitist than a one-term senator comparing himself to Moses...

This election was supposed to be about Bush

When the election was about Bush, Obama was clearly ahead...

Now the election is about Obama.

Now it will be close. Hang on to your seats everyone.

Also

FD Prediction Desk is here to make 2 wrong VP predictions.

Democrats:

Who I want: Hillary Clinton

Let's face it, even with all the negatives, there is no larger group of swing voters than disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters

Who will be picked: Tim Kaine

The Governor of Virginia represents generational change. Obama wont pick an old guy.

The problem with Kaine is that Obama would have had to look long and hard for someone with LESS experience than him. In Kaine, at least he is more experienced!

Republicans

Who should be picked: Mitt Romney

This is an election about the economy, and Romney was the economy candidate. His dad was the governor of Michigan, and with Kwame Kilpatrick's scandal and Jennifer Granholm's growing impopularity, the Democcrats may have to spend a lot of money here.

Also let's face it, the right-wing needs some abating, and the Tom Ridge "scare" will make them happy they ended up with Romney.

Who Will Be Picked:

Mitt Romney

McCain has been very smart up until this point. I fully expect him to make the right decision. Massachusetts and New Hampshire share the same media market as well. Therefore, the people of NH are well aware of the success Mitt Romney enjoyed as Mass. Governor.

As my friend Phil pointed out to me, Mormon population may not be huge outside Utah, but in Nevada and Colorado, it is definitely present.

Obama doesn't compare himself to moses. You and John McCain and everyone who wants him to lose does.

He has tried to take political advantage of his personal popularity, and the hyperbolists (like yourself) have blown the extent to which he has done so ridiculously out of proportion to make him look arrogant.

Its an attack he has to counter but its still a baseless, stupid line of attack.

And you're already 0/1. What else is new.

I expect to be 0/2 by the end of next week.

Im very surprised by Biden, who I admire a hell of a lot.

If washington is so broken tho, why take a sixterm senator.

CHANGE

Maybe washington wasnt so broken after all

"McCain has been very smart up until this point."

Admittitly, former POW John McCain was having a pretty good month... then he forgot how many houses the "trollop" he calls his wife had purchased for them.

Good thing the Liberal Party is oh so very Canadian and instead of choosing a leader with some charisma and the ability to inspire like a Kennedy or Ignatief, we all saw through the hype and picked Dion...
