Half-way to being 100% correct?
From the looks of things after Florida, and with the polls the way they are in several big winner-take-all primaries next week, John McCain will be the Republican nominee. As this blog said
on January 9:
Welcome to the wonderful world of "change"
Where the likely November face-off will be the Democrats' establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, against the Republicans' establishment candidate, John McCain (don't let the squabbling fool you, he's completely acceptable to the money-boys).
A triumph of name-recognition, establishment press support, and money. We should all be proud.
If we're lucky, Hillary will be the Democratic candidate this fall. Right?
If we're lucky, Obama will win.
If we're not quite so lucky, Hillary will throw in the towel.
If we're less lucky, Hillary will persist.
A brilliant prediction.
Along those lines... Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi's "The New Nixon" article in the 2/7 publication covers the Obama/Clinton race. Best quote: "It's Kennedy-Nixon redux - two superficial conservatives selling highly similar politics." Super Tuesday we are reduced to voting between two free trade, pro corporation, pro war progressive candidates. This sucks.
