    The D's are certainly more energized than the R's, nationwide. If Obama wins the primary, I think he's a shoo-in for the Presidency. If Clinton wins, then I think the R's will turn out in droves and defeat her.

    Obama is a good man, least harmful of all at least.

    If she wins it, I'd say a Republican wins... if Obama wins, even Republican's might vote for him.

    They get a lot of sunshine in the Carolinas so I doubt if they are too blue.

    In the Presidential election, I predict the deep south will vote solidly Republican, as they have in recent years, irrespective of who the Democrats put forward.

    There is an interesting dynamic happening though; the Democrats are voting in much larger numbers than the Republicans for the most part.

    Let's face it: there isn't a republican that is running that excites the masses. They can villify Obama or Clinton, but the fact is they have a much larger name recognition than the other side. They also have a lot more money and they are right there on the ridiculous 527 monie's available.

    Swiftboating will not work this year.

    If I'm a republican, I'm deeply worried. The only one that stands a chance is McCain, and eventually he will start to come down in the polls. All the Dem candidate has to do is pick off a red state or two and they should have enough electoral votes to win.
