Who Won the G.O.P. Debate

Who "won" it? I don't know. I didn't watch it and probably never will watch a debate unless some issue sprouts up that needs debating. The thing is I already know who I'm going to vote for in November. Whoever runs against Hillary Clinton. You see the G.O.P. gets a mulligan here because they don't need a candidate that will energize their base, the Dems did that for them. As astute and tough as HRC is she has more baggage than American Airlines, and none of it is lost. She leaves many Dem voters cold but enrages the base on the right. That, my friend, is the perfect G.O.P. candidate.

For the record I like Fred Thompson, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, in that order. All the rest are also rans who should try to shape the debate in favor of their pet issue because that's the only way they will effect anything.

Like it or not McCain is clearly not an also ran. He may trail Giuliani in the national polls (although not by as much as a few weeks ago) he still leads in Iowa and the early primary states.

By the way, I like Fred Thompson too but until he actually gets in the race I have to rate McCain ahead of him.

John McCain is dead to me. I'd still vote for a dead man over HRC but McCain-Feingold leaves a bad taste in my mouth, kind of like a cigar that had been somewhere it shouldn't have.

McCain-Feingold leaves a bad taste in my mouth too. Even so if McCain's the nominee, I'd hold my nose and pull the lever for him just because he's been so steadfast on Iraq.

I'm hoping Thompson jumps in. I think he will. If he does, EVERYTHING changes.
