Obama will most likely win this up coming election. The democrats are starting to rally from the perceived poor performance by GWB.

I would have loved to have Mccain in office but he will too old. I also wanted Palin no where near the white house.


I would really like an independent moderate to run and actually be able to make a go of it. I'm tired of the the Left and the Right wings kind of digging for a middle wing these days.
If things don't start turning around by this November, then Obama has no chance at reelection. His approval ratings are already starting to drop and the stock market is showing zero confidence in his Presidency.

I would vote for Palin or Mike Huckabee for sure, but I can't think of anyone else from the Republican party. I don't even know who this Bobby Jindal guy is.

I had never heard of Jindal until I saw him on some talk shows and the guy is very intelligant genuine sounding guy. He grew up super poor and worked his way up, he earned my respect, not to steroetype but I thought he was Democrat. He is far from it!!

No kidding that's why he did not get my vote!

I thought Mccain was a horrible choice and to be honest, that is one of the reasons the republicans lost the election. That and Bush showed in his last 4 years that he was not a conservative either. The republicans lost alot of supporters to 3rd parties because of it. People like me!

Exactly, McCain would have been my last choice for the Republican nominee. In fact, when I first heard that he was the choice, I thought the Republicans were intentionally trying to throw the election.

I've seen a little of Huckabee on his show and he comes across as very common sensical. I like that!

It would be refreshing to see someone run who actually means what he says and says what he means and proves trueblue after he's elected.

Nate just curious

Aside from Palin's religious views matching your own why would you vote for her?
