    I'm just wondering who you all favor at this time so far.

    I'm not asking who you think will win. I'm asking who you like the most. THAT isn't too early to say - who your favorites are right now.

    Neither someone from the far right or left can be elected.....Clinton and Obama fooled the voters into believing they were moderates when in fact they were and are as far left as you can get.

    I have no idea what you are babbling about. My post DID NOT mention democrats in any way shape or form.

    Clinton was a member of the DLC, a conservative Democratic organization. He wasn't liberal and governed more like a centralist. He was to the right of both Bush's when it comes to governance. Clinton while taxing the rich on one hand, he supported NAFTA, WTO, the Telecommunications Act, and so-called Welfare Reform on the other.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Huckabee had his flaws. The social issues he ran on don't play well with the national audience. I doubt he would've done better than McCain.



    There was more than the unpopularity of Bush. Obama ran a great campaign in 2008, unlike Rory Reid. The fact that Sandoval also got to run directly against the unpopularity in the primary also helped, which no one in 2008 was able to do. He also ran in a Republican wave year, rather than the Democratic wave year of 2008. Of those running, none would've beaten him or likely done better than McCain.



    Electability is important. It shouldn't be the only thing by any means, but it should definitely factor in.
    1- Yes it does mean that. There are others who would've done worse. There are others who would have done better. There is no denying that.

    2- Then the national audience is wrong. He shouldn't have to be wrong like the liberals in order to win. Huckabee should have instead educated the public on why the ideals he supports are right.

    3- I still disagree, but there's no way to tell.

    4- Using words like "Electability" or acting like it's important - means you have no real opinions of your own - and no confidence that you'll be able to convince people of the truth. People like you just go with the flow. Is that the sort of mindset you like having?

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Keep in mind that North Carolina's voter ID law doesn't take effect until 2016, after court in 2015..
    It's all the other trickie dickie 21st Century schizoid "jim crow" laws that have Kay Hagan as a big underdog in my book..

    Howdy Linc, I don't see Hagan as a big underdog although she blew a 14 point lead in the polls and is now down by 2 since 1 November. But I wonder how much of that was because of the ACA. North Carolina is moving towards purple and is a couple of years behind Virginia which seems to becoming more like Maryland than a state of the south.

    PPP just released a poll on Kentucky, McConnell is up by only one point over Grimes, 43-42. If Bevins gives him a hard time in the primary I wouldn't be surprised to see Grimes win. Kentucky may become another example of a Tea Party Candidate costing the Republicans another senate seat. Time will tell. But I am still say McConnell will win for the time being.
