    Obama will be out of the running. Instead, the Democrats will run a Jewish lesbian and the Republicans will run a conservative Jewish lesbian who is staunchly pro-Israel, hard on crime and tough on terror. Republicans can always be counted on to brilliantly reach out to their natural base!

    They were the best the conservatives could come up with that had a chance in hell of winning.

    Who else do you suggest run to represent the conservatives?

    The Democrats also elected a moderate. Dennis Kucinich would have been the choice of the left.

    Puts you in a tough position since the moderates decide the elections, doesn't it?

    I am sure that calling them unprincipled will win them over to your side though.

    Re: 58% Say Next President Likely To Be Republican

    I went back to the original OP and the link. This survey was strictly a survey of whether a Republican is "at least somewhat" likely. Or could be likely or not likely. It really isn't comparing the two parties at all.

    Geez, you only got two parties. Its at LEAST SOMEWHAT LIKELY that either a Republican or Democrat will be elected as the next President.

    Really, look at the link.

    58% Say Next President Likely To Be Republican - Rasmussen Reports

    Fifty-eight percent (58%) of likely voters say it is at least somewhat likely the next president of the United States will be a Republican
    Come on. Thats a pretty Mickey Mouse poll.

    Psssst... they can elect anyone, they just need to be frightened enough. First pick an ill-defined scapegoat and stir up a hysterical moral panic around the group. Put up a charismatic man with a pure and righteous heart who is willing to do whatever it takes to stop the enemy. Hammer on the immediacy of the danger posed by the enemy. Accuse anyone who opposes you of being either in bed with the enemy or being too cowardly to take action. Current options for enemies: "terrorists," "pedophiles," and their alleged sympathizers (even better, maybe just say they're all basically one and the same, all manifestations of pure evil). Also handy as a pretext for rounding up political dissidents once you're in power.

    Of course, if people are hungry, that will help things along...

    You do have a way with people. Its hard to believe you have not been able to draw more people to your your party!

    Well as I'd noted in an edit:

    That can actually be a BIG help.

    From what I've seen we are the most obese country on the planet. When does the hunger come into play?
