I think either John Mccain or Hillary Clinton will become president.
. . we now know that the CNN bias is real. From start to finish CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer was tossing Hillary softballs. I can live with the fact that she and Barack were oh-so-cordial, My sense of the thing is that both candidates actually had some of the questions beforehand. I'm pretty sure that's not the case. I think both were just very well prepared. Many of us on ATS have predicted a high degree of media collusion in this election. If you were skeptical before, you should not be so any more.
yikes! I know that Wolf is a cunning linguist, but he went down so many times I thought Hillary would blush.
What of the Clinton's unsavory past? Surely Whitewater, Vince Foster et al, bought pardons and even stealing the White House silverware will soon be resurrected by the Republican nominee, if not by Obama even sooner. Will no one listen to how Hillary and her illustrious husband have no class and no moral character? Who do the Democrats think they're electing to a "third" term Bill, Hillary, or Bill and Hillary a.k.a. Billary?
Richard Mellon Scaife is the best-known living member of Pittsburgh's storied Mellon clan, whose eponymous bank made the family a 19th-century fortune Scaife, who owns several newspapers, is a major backer of conservative causes; his political donations fueled the rise of the New Right and its moral crusade against Bill Clinton, making Scaife the central figure in Hillary Clinton's "vast right-wing conspiracy." In the 1990s, his gift of $1.8 million to The American Spectator funded investigations into Whitewater and Bill Clinton's personal life, including David Brock's notorious "Troopergate" exposé, which led to Paula Jones' sexual-harassment suit against the president.
Scaife was no run-of-the-mill Clinton hater. In the 1990s, the heir to the Mellon banking fortune contributed millions to efforts to dig up dirt on President Clinton. He backed the Clinton-bashing American Spectator magazine, whose muckrakers produced lurid stories about Clinton's alleged financial improprieties and trysts. Scaife also financed a probe called the Arkansas Project that tried, among other things, to show that Clinton, while Arkansas governor, protected drug runners.
The estranged wife of billionaire and newspaper owner Richard Mellon Scaife, the Pittsburgh banking heir turned media mogul, was awarded $725,000 a month in temporary support during their acrimonious divorce, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Sunday.

Unsavory? Name me one person who has been more throughly vetted in the last 30 years! If these old and totally discredited allegations are the only gutter-filler the GOP can muster, then it’s ‘Hello Hillary’ on January 20, 2009.

What of the missing pages of the Barrett report? You can bet that the GOP will ensure the widest possible distribution. An editorial about it appeared in the Washington Times a week or so ago: Washington Times It sounds to me like Hillary is going to get "swiftboated." I strongly approve.
So I suppose the Democrats are pure as the driving snow, Bill did not have sex with that lady,(and the others) Hillary did no wrong in the Whitewater scandal or anything else. The evil Republicans are the bad guys, always wrongfully downing the Democrats for imagined sins.
No sense beating my head against the wall arguing with a Democrat. BTW, more unemployment and welfare has to be paid by those of us who WILL work for a living.
The missing pages of the Barrett report that Democratic congressmen have illegally buried will come out in time to disqualify those who deserve it.
Obama would not want to carry Clinton baggage. He has offered a vision of change, and having to answer to the years of strife under the Clintons would be too much. It would make sense to have a fresh face serving as his vice president who doesn't engender anger among some in the Democratic Party, and definitely the GOP. An Obama run would be about going after Republicans and independents, and Clinton being on the ticket would make that very difficult.
