    If I recall correctly McCain said early in the primaries that this was the last time he was running for President regardless of the out come. So sorry, no McCain in 2012.

    Yeah, that and the fact that he is unelectable.

    Sarah Palin will be the choice of the hard right. That's who they all like. The hard right will not accept McCain or Romney or Gingrich.

    (Newt has a new book out this week about George Washington.)

    The republicans could really be split next vote.

    That is what I think will be the most interesting aspect of the 2010 election.

    So you said none, then you said there was one. And now you're changing the goal post by bringing up primaries. Try to be consistant, my friend
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    And you didn't say anything other than I'm ignorant when it comes to history. Which inadvertently jogged my memory and I remembered an incumbent that was denied the nomination. I can't really say that you corrected me since you offered nothing but an ad hominen attack and I still don't know whether you know who this president was.

    I brought up the primaries question just as an aside, not as an attempt to be consistent because "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesman and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do." (Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was a contemporary of that incumbent president that was denied nomination for re-election, hint hint)
    "And I looked, and behold, a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed after him"

    Just because he wasn't elected in 2008 does not mean that he is unelectable. Many did not vote for him because they were pissed off at republicans. Not because they didn't like McCain. They just disliked his party.
