Jan. 25th, 2009 @ 07:35 pm My Take On Election 2008.
Current Location: Tucson, AZ
Current Mood: calmcalm
Now that I am back, it is time for my take on Election 2008.

To recap, my support went like this: Fmr. Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) -->US Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) -->Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK). I did not support US Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) at all.

I felt the US Pres. Barack Obama (D-IL) should have picked HC for his VP. Picking SP was the only thing JM did right.

Why Did BHO Win?: The economic downturn took the nation's focus off of Iraq and that was JM's only real issue to campaign on. When JM tried to lead on the economy, he looked lost in the woods while BHO looked ready to lead.

Historical Election: No matter how well or poorly BHO is as POTUS, he will be remembered mostly for being the first Biracial/African-American POTUS.

Predictions For 2012.

1. BHO will ask HC to be his VP.
2. BHO will win again and by bigger numbers.
3. The GOP will not run (or allow to run) Palin.
4. The GOP will run Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) and Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA).

Holy Shitstains are you fuckin serious?

You are one of those complete idiots who think Palin and Clinton actually stand for the same things? I didn't think they were real. I have no problem telling you you're a fucking moron.

I went from supporting Huckabee to Clinton after talking to my sister. She is a very conservative US Army NCO. She explained to me that Clinton was actually not feared by the military as much as Obama or the other GOP candidates at that time.

Politically, Clinton and Palin are polar opposites in both views and experience. Clinton is more ready to be POTUS right now, while Palin needs time on the national stage as a US Senator.
