BTW, here's an excellent article on why Conservatives dislike McCain, and why it's imperative that they back him up.

McCain has HUGE independent support, which is precisely why he's running away with the nomination. Many of the early states have allowed independents to vote and a few have had open primaries and he's even gotten votes from Democrats. Whether it is because they support him or if they're just trying to eliminate a Conservative choice...who knows, but McCain is more popular with independents than with his own party base.

Unfortunately, McCain DOES get specific. I say unfortunately because he becomes less and less attractive as a candidate when he speaks of his plans such as amnesty. (he won't admit it is amnesty, but it is)



I'm really disappointed in the choice of candidates on both sides this election.
You as a citizen need to do your homework. See the problems, see his solutions.

Re: Does McCain Have a shot?

Oddly enough I was just telling my friend this. This is the way I see it:

1) If Obama is democratic nominee: McCain has a harder shot at becoming President. Conservatives that don't like McCain either wouldn't vote, or would switch over to democrat

2) If Hillary is democratic nominee: McCain has a much better chance being that Conservatives that don't like McCain hate Hilary so much more, they either wouldn't vote or would just vote for McCain anyway to keep her out of office.

I always thought that was why Republicans wanted her to win the democratic nomination so bad.

Mitt Romney drops out of GOP race

McCain Seals GOP Nod As Romney Suspends | World Latest | Guardian Unlimited

Interesting... I'm curious as to how long Huckabee stays in the race. McCain seems remarkably close to seal the deal, and this will change the dynamics of his campaign.

I also wonder whether or not Huckabee gets any kind of surge here. It seems the reason Romney was crushed on super tuesday was because conservatives were splitting between him and Huckabee... giving McCain a clear shot.

This also could change how the Hilary and Obama race fares. Democrats will start voting for the "most electable". This could be big for Obama.

Lookup douchebaggery and changing your position centillion times in the dictionary and you'll see Romney's picture. Good riddance.

Re: Does McCain Have a shot?

I'm curious as to what the majority of Democrats think about Obama? We all know how Ted Kennedy thinks of him.

Re: Does McCain Have a shot?

So what I'm going to do here is merge the Romney thread RobH created(since it's fairly new) and this McCain thread and update the title

I think they are waiting. Personally I support Obama, just because I feel he has the best shot versus McCain. Not that I don't respect McCain and his domestic policies, I just really don't want us to be in Iraq for the next 70 years.

Re: Merged Thread: Romney Drops Out; Can McCain Defeat Democrats?

McCain also seems a very smart choice by the Republicans in the LR. Uber conservatives should just calm down because he has a good shot for the presidency. he attracts alot of independents, moderates, and quasi-liberals.

You mean the hate radio talk show hosts and pundits making the news rounds? I guess he has proven them wrong because he is clearly going to win the republican nomination after being written off and ripped on.

The Little General is well on his way, he just needs a little help from Hillary.

I have got to wonder if that was intentional on Fox News' part. I also wonder whether the right's attacks on McCain will actually help him in the general election.

They have been doing this sort of thing for years to Dems so I am not surprised. Lets just say I highly doubt it's a coincidence.
