    Sometimes it seems as if there's only one thing you can rely on the Democratic Party to do, it's blow an election.

    Don't worry, as soon as the Dems have their candidate they will be able to focus on the fact that a vote for McCain is a vote for Bush.

    On the two biggest issues of the day, the war and the economy there is virtually no difference between McCain and Bush.

    Here's the bumper sticker: VOTE McCAIN GET MORE OF SAME

    Doesn't really have much of a ring to it. Look for something rhyming.

    Yeah. because we all know how Obama or Hillary are going to just pull the plug on the troops, or somehow right the economy by jacking up taxes.:rolleyes:

    You're just brilliant. Want to buy some swampland in West Texas?:eusa_think:

    Even sadder than that, it won't be necessary to say that. McCain is just going to use the soundbites these two have been hammering each other with. Have you heard the latest Clinton commercial from PA? Wowser, there will be no walking that one back if Obama is nominated.

    Exactly - The Dems are doing all the Republicans' campaigning for them - and not in the stick-in-the-mud Kerry or Gore campaign sense of the phrase either. They're ripping each other apart - at this point the factions are so strongly divided that, regardless of who ends up getting the nomination, i think there's going to be a significant subset of Dem voters who are just so embittered by the results that they don't even bother showing up in November . . .

    You can keep trying to convince yourself of that, I guess.

    It's also quite possible that the eventual Dem nominee will be quicker at quelling idiotic talking points from McCain...practice isn't always a bad thing. Kerry never got the practice he needed.
