A strong 7
What do you guys think?
The Clinton machine is a force to be reckoned with. But, I just don't know how well "it" will do in the fly-over states next time around. There seems to be a real disconnect, but '08 is a long time away. The planets are aligining for Obama - it will be interesting to see what happens. I beleive his stats, other than bing president for 8 years, are similar to hillary's.
Here's my dream matchup for '08:
Dem - Obama/Lieberman
Rep - McCain/Giuliani
I wouldn't play the odds, though...
I wouldn't necessarily say formidable, b/c Obama does have some drawbacks...
In terms of being elected by this population, a major one is that he's black. There are plenty of people who won't vote for a black candidate. I would be really interested to see Rice versus Clinton. Either voter turnout would be at an all time low, or a 3rd party candidate might get more votes than ever before. Maybe Kinky Friedman would finally get his day in the sun. Oh wait, he's Jewish. The American voter doesn't like that either.
