It’s a long way to go – we have Super Tuesday to come yet, but it’s looking increasingly likely that the final nominees just might be Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
Of course we can’t rule out other competitors yet. Next Saturday Barack Obama’s likely to win South Carolina for the Democrats (of course if he doesn’t then his campaign really is stalling), but three days later McCain’s likely to fend off Giuliani according to the polls. It’s true that Mitt Romney appears to be putting a loose coalition together, and the consummate political chameleon seems to be McCain’s most likely national challenger. And who knows what Super Tuesday will bring?
I’d favour a Clinton/McCain contest in November because I really wouldn’t know who’d win. A choice between a centrist left winger or a moderate (& at least intelligent) Conservative. Each appeals to the free-thinking (& rational) voter, which is more than could be said about the outgoing chimp – now the Least Popular President Ever©. It is odd though, isn’t it, that the cleanest campaign seems to being run by a right-winger? Truly this is an unusual contest.
