Hillary vs. Paul in 2008?
Speaking of the 2008 presidential election- a subject I actually find quite dull at this point in time- I think the race is the democrats to lose. Seems to me the Bush Administration is [rightfully] held in such low regard by most people the dems have a big advantage right from the start.
I say that with a somewhat heavy heart because my gut feeling is Hillary Clinton will end up being the democrat's candidate for president after all is said and done.
No, I don't like her. I think she's both a disgusting person and politician, but I think she'll be the one. I hope I'm wrong and, in the back of my mind, keep hoping she'll have a Paul Wellstone moment one of these times she's flying around the country.
Not too happy with the republican choices, either, with the exception of Ron Paul as I've mentioned before. He won't win the nomination, though.
I was actually thinking that Ron Paul is probably the only one that has a chance of defeating Hillary. He's the only republican that seems to appeal to both the Left and Right, at least to some extent. Probably because he's the only GOP candidate that is strongly against the Iraq war and is willing to stand alone and say it.
With that in mind, I found this commentary a fun read. The writer tells us why Paul is the GOP's best choice. He's right, as far as I'm concerned. Problem is, Paul won't win the nomination. Even if he did, despite feeling he's the republican's best choice, I don't think he'd win against Hillary. Too many people fear liberty.
I hope I'm wrong.
