    I doubt that's accurate, at least not compared with the rest of the democracy-loving, western world. Our center is quite farther to the right than most European counties, as well as democratic Asian and Pacific nations. Our liberals are moderates to the rest of the world.

    They said Reagan was never going to beat Carter too. He did, BIG TIME! I can think of several reasons why Obama is going to lose.

    Yes. But i dont think in a "landslide".. I believe if Bush did it in 2004 then Obama can do it no problem..

    I don't really want to speculate on what happens. I thought Bush would be defeated in a landslide in '04, so I realize I'm not good at predictions. I hope Obama wins again, not only because he espouses way more of my ideals than republicans do, but also because I think he's a good person with a lot of integrity, who's held on as much as he can in the single most ideals-destroying job in the world. I have a lot of respect for him. And, sadly, it seems like the GOP candidates that I have respect for (like Romney and Paul), aren't lunatic fringe enough to unite their party.
    They are reactionary, talking heads. The only one I haven't seen fall into that description is Huntsman.

    And who are you going to compare to Ronald Reagan? Michelle Bachmann? Mitt Romney?

    The problem with your comparison is, these new candidates do not signal a New Right, or any change from the norm. And they're going to have to show they're far right to win the primary. And when it comes time for the election, moderates are going to remember what they said and did to get the primary.

    They're not Reagan, because they're the same as their predecessors, and therefore, your comparison is moot.

    I would agree that Hunstman would be the best person from the GOP Pres. field for the actual job of President. And that's why he's probably not going to win the primary, unfortunately.

    So who is this Republican candidate you talk so convincely?

    Just thinking you can put up anyone with a R next to their name is going to get you the same results the Dems had against Bush his second term.

    Sorry...if it consoles you, I feel your pain. When I want to feel better, I imagine Hunstman and Obama against each other

    Thank you.

    I consider the term "elder statesman." He's the only one I've seen show any real degree of ... okay, what's the opposite of being a caricature?
