I don't think anyone with a brain and some knowledge of matters political saw this coming. Romney dropped out, McCain is pretty much the Republican front runner, Huckabee is doing what he does best.... win over rural and religious voters, and Clinton and Obama are in a dead heat. Where do we go from here? It almost does not matter at this point, and I love it.
Bush and his administration has done about as much damage as one man can do to this country, and other countries. The Republican juggernaut is broken, split, and confused. Their closest front runner is their biggest renegade. He's the man that they allowed Bush to beat in 2000 because of his rogue behavior. The religious right is backing Huckabee, but Christian conservatism is not pulling in the financial conservatives and moderates that the Republicans were able to get the last two elections.
And the Democrats.... who knows. Which way will we make history? It has already been made. The real question now is who is most qualified.... just kidding!! The real question is who is most electable. Who can beat McCain / Huckabee.... or whoever. Probably not Hillary.
These are interesting times we live in, whether or not you give a flying fuck about who will be the next leader of the free world, and whether we will see the first black or female president. Just let me see the first rational and accomplished president in my life time. I can honestly look a the span of my life and say that it was between Reagan and Clinton, and that is nothing to brag to grandkids about....
