Kirk might be right, but for the wrong reason. If Obama is even in it he will be in it as a spoiler working for Hillary. He can't win the presidency and he's too smart to think he can. If he is in the primaries at all it's just to take votes from Edwards and showcase himself on the national stage.

Edwards polls high in Iowa, might win it, he'll win NV and show strong in NH. He will win SC. She needs Obama to split votes with Edwards to win OK MO TN and MI. If he does that she has a big lead after mini Tuesday. If Obama doesn't finish a strong second in NH and keeps running you know the deal has been cut.

Hillary has the big voting bloc states: New York and California. She might have New England too, even tho for some inexplicable reason Obama is wildly popular in lily white New Hampshire. I can see how they will play it: they duke out a few primaries, then announce some great "unity" movement, proclaiming him as the running mate before the convention even happens. It will drip with the kind of 'feel good about America and her diversity' political BS that Billy Boy just knocks the voters over with. A symbolic unity of the White and Black Races. A strong woman, and a sensitive, loving black man. The fucking voters will lap it up.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Nah, he's just bringing sand to the beach. Blacks and Illinois already vote Dem. What else does he bring? Immigrants? Nope, he voted for the wall. Not going to get any Mexicans that weren't already going to vote for him.

If Hillary gets the nod she needs to pick Edwards. You get all of the pluses of Obama with none of the negatives. He's young, a great speaker, will deliver the south and labor and trial lawyers money. Oh and he's white. Problem is, like I said before, if she gets the nod it will be because she's already promised the VP spot to Obama. It's the short term thinking that kills the Dems every time.

Your true strength is foreign policy. This domestic shit seems to evoke visions of fairies and sugar plums.

Yeah, Gore thought that about Edwards too. He turned out to be a pussy, and the voters think he is a fag.

Guiliani is the winner. He would kick any Democrat's ass. But thankfully, the Dems have a secret weapon to defeat Guiliani, known as "the Republicans".
