1. McCain will never ever win the Republican nomination. If he runs, it'll be as an independent.

2. I've told you this before, but it looks like I'm going to have to tell you again: Not everyone in this country is a liberal or conservative.

You would sure as hell think so considering 44 percent of the country is ideological to one side or the other.

There def should have been an option for Middle of the Road however no matter what small percentage we account for.

What I meant to say was that 44 percent of is conservative and 44 percent is liberal. And the rest of us of course, are in the middle.

Hope that makes sense.

Do you know how to read? This poll is based on them both getting their partys nomination.......What part of that do you not understand?

It's not going to happen for McCain. I was just pointing that out. Kindly remove the stick from your anus.

How could a lib like you know what Conservatives will do........You forget unlike the Dem party the Republican party has a big tent..........

I would say that McCain has a better chance then that phoney Hillary who is a Liberal and trying to fool everyone into believing that she is a moderate.....


Anyhow if those 2 were the nominees who would you vote for........Never mind I already know.......:roll:

Ouch. Not even John McCain can make me vote Nader. I don't know what I'd do.

I have had a change of opinion in the whole McCain versus Hillary issue. I think that Hillary is going to only try and appear to make herself look more conservative but I don't think she will do anything that will hurt. McCain wouldn't be a bad president though but hes still a conservative.

Hillary has trying to fool people for 2 years that she is a moderate but she is fooling no one except her liberal base who are pissed off at her..............

You are right about McCain, he is a maverick republican but a Conservative all the way.......

I doubt he'll even run but if he does and depending on how it looks in regard to how the houses will be balanced it's McCain for me. I like Hilary but don't think she'll be allowed to get much done as president at this point in our political climate.

Hehe, I love your simplemindedness.

Because I don't live in a bubble closed off from everyone else in the world, like you apparently do.

Hillary is VERY likely to win the Democratic nomination simply because there aren't any better candidates in the field. McCain is despised by all of the religious nuts and the Bush loyalists in his party.

Probably McCain, depending on the important issues at the time. But it's not going to happen.

Personally, though this may change before the time comes to pull the lever, I'm hoping for a McCain/Condi ticket.

That I don't understand. The democratic party contains millions of members, possibly thousands who are qualified to be president. Of all the senators governors, former cabinet members, representatives, men and women uniform, and buisiness leaders, they can't find anyone who is better than Hillary Clinton?

I think there are several candidates on the democratic side that look like they can pick up some steam. Hillary won't be a shoe in yet.

I said it before, and I'll say it again...

If a know-nothing, no experience little rich kid can become president by using his daddys name and influence, with a campaign of back stabbing and dirty politics, then certainly, it's entirely possible Hillary could be President.

Do not underestimate this woman!

Besides...most of you who are so anti-Hillary cannot even list any reasons for hating her. You don't know why you don't like her...you just know your political bias tells you to hate her...so you do.

Condi? Condi lied deliberately right in the face of America. If some of you people can condemn Clinton for lying, how in the hell can you think of supporting Condi?! Sheesh! I give up! LOL!

I hate it when you use stupid nicknames like that. It makes me think you listen to nothing but Rush Limbaugh for news.

But anyways I'm really gonna have to do more research on Hillary. I like McCain but another conservative president isn't very appealing to me, especially after Bush.

I like McCain, too, but unfortunately, the GOP will never nominate him. They need someone they can push around and control and McCain will never be that man.

And to you Navy Pride, John Kerry and Al Gore never became President, so I'm quite sure you know who I was referring to in my previous post.

Just think about it...what did Bush have going for him other then his fathers last name and influence? The current Bush has failed at every business venture he's ever been involved in. The governorship of Texas is mostly a figure head, and yet, Bush still managed to make a mess of the state while he was in office.

My whole point is...if someone like Bush can become president, then I dare say, anyone of us in these forums could become president. (with the proper financial backing,) so anyone that thinks Hillary as president is out of the question-all I can say is...look at who we have in office now.

Sorry about the nickname but I was just responding to the comments about President Bush being spoon fed rich when Kerry married into the Heinz Catsup family to get his money.......

How do you say Gigilo?:roll:

I'll explain what I meant if you explain what you meant by this! LOL! Where did that come from? Therefore, I said Al and John were never president, so my above quote was obviously referring to you know who.
