The Republican race for the nomination is a circus. Having followed it, it seems basically inevitable that Obama will be elected.
I dont see one potentially presidential nominee in the bunch. If anything Michelle Bachmann should have got the nomination. At least she was privy to Middle Eastern issues. But, of course, despite her qualities, she turned out to be just another bigot.
Pretty typical of the right.
ROANOKE, VA --
The Virginia Attorney General's office is investigating the campaign of Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich, over claims of ballot signature fraud.
At the end of December, Gingrich told CNN that the reason he did not qualify for the Virginia primary, is because one of the people his campaign hired falsified a lot of signatures.
The attorney general's office tells WSLS that the State Board of Elections asked it to investigate the claim. A spokesman for the attorney general's office emphasized that the investigation is not looking into Gingrich himself.
