In some ways, Obama is more conservative than McCain. That is why I'll end up voting for my first Dem ever over McCain.

I'm really hoping Obama gets the nod for the Dems. McCain needs to lose because Republicans will get confused if he pursues his liberal agenda and enough of them will go along. At least if a Dem wins, the Repubilcans will know they should be against their agenda. Someone get me my "Obama Republ...

Pawlenty would be a bad choice because he is not conservative enough. He's raised taxes in Minnesota. That would just reinforce the poor opinion of McCain as a Rhino.

McCain won SC while Romney got NV. Right now, that puts Romney ahead of McCain for delegates, but Florida is up next. Guiliani might actually try to win a state, shocker. With Hunter out and Paul an afterthought, that leaves Romney, McCain, Huckabee and Guiliani.
