    It's the kind of attitude that guarantees Democratic supremacy in Presidential elections for the forseeable future. May it never, ever change.

    As far as what I think of people who had a chance are the ones who we wouldn't be able to calculate what kind of voter surge would be behind them... Herman Cain and Ron Paul... we have no idea how many votes they could of taken from the democrats and both of them could of gone either way as a complete sham or success.

    neither would have had a chance

    Caine had way too much baggage and Ron Paul comes off nutty. lots of corporate republicans wouldn't have voted for him due to his isolationist views

    I think a lot of conservatives were desperate enough to vote for him anyway.

    I would have voted for a dead armadillo over obama. But I know lots of "corporate" Republicans who thought Paul was goofy

    That, as well as the disability act (or whats it called, the other healthcare bill), is proof that the road to universal healthcare was not thanks to socialism, but to conservatives and liberals (especially in England).

    So to say 'socialized' in the context that socialism did nothing to advance the concept of healthcare to any great lengths... is a bad use of words to say nothing more.

    Universal healthcare is a good thing. It is not a leftist thing. It is a good thing that is implemented with great success and effect in many, very capitalist, very free, very anti-far left socialism countries.

    Unlikely, Dole would have had a better chance and that is saying something.

    Santorum would have been the candidate to kill off apathy in the voter pool. People would have gotten off their deathbeds to vote against him.
