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).
