Barack Obama is tightening his death grip on Hillary Clinton so it is looking more and more like he will be the Democratic candidate for president in 2008.
John McCain is all but officially the Republican candidate for president in 2008.
I think it is very unlikely that John McCain can defeat the surging, omni-endorsed Obama. A charismatic personality like Obama tends to overshadow his positions, especially with such a perceived dirth of the same in recent years. People will jump on the Obama bandwagon without closely analyzing his extremely liberal positions. George Bush has created an appetite for an articulate, diplomatic-looking, internationally accepted, spokesman for America, and Obama fits that description more than John McCain. Never mind Obama's pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-tolerate anything and everything, pull the troops out now, raise taxes, appoint judges like him, the bigger the government the better, mindset- he looks and sounds good, "we'll take him" say enough of the American people to elect him in November.
John McCain is a better choice than Barack Obama. Without going point for point comparing the two, liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is 87 years old and will likely retire or die in the next 4 years. I appreciate the argument from some conservatives that say electing Obama would actually force conservatives to re-find themselves as they have become hopelessly moderate, however, I don't really buy that logic. The next president will nominate a judge to the Supreme Court. I see that as a big deal. Who would you rather nominate a Supreme Court judge?
Barack Obama will choose a judge that makes Ruth Bader Ginsburg look like Ruth Graham. That's scary. John McCain would pick someone better...I think.
