McCain / Lieberman in '08!

While neither FOX nor CNN nor the Associated Press is willing to do so, I am now prepared to call the 2008 Florida Republican Primary and declare Sen. John McCain the winner there. As the vote totals come in his lead continues to increase over Mitt Romney and based on my research, I believe that John McCain will win the Florida primary.

Looks like Rudy Giuliani will finish a very disappointing third, his gamble of putting all of his chips in this state not having paid off. Look for him to exit the race, perhaps as early as tonight.

This now makes McCain the front-runner for the Republican nomination and it doesn't look like anyone can stop him, save perhaps the deep-pocketed Romney, but even that seems to be less and less likely with this big win swinging momentum in McCain's favor. Even I counted McCain out not too long ago, but it looks like his political resurrection is now complete. This is really nothing but good news for the Republican party and rather awful news for Democrats who would MUCH rather go up against Romney or Huckabee. But having McCain as the presumptive nominee has to have them sweating. I don't think they can beat him. While even some Republicans might not be comfortable with him, he really looks like someone who can truly work across party lines and get things done in Washington, something he's been doing his entire career.

John McCain, the 44th President of the United States. You heard it here first. I'll be back with more, perhaps later tonight. Or perhaps not.

Ya. Sorry to break it to you, but McCain isn't going to win.

Really? You think Mitt Romney can still secure the nomination. I'm not saying it's impossible, but a lot seems to be in McCain's favor now.

Oh dear. You must have misunderstood me. Neither Romney nor McCain will be the next US president. It's just not going to happen.

Don't be so sure. The latest Rasmussen Poll numbers have McCain leading both Obama and Clinton, as did the last USA Today-Gallup numbers. While I know that polls aren't always accurate (and we have a LONG way to go) he seems to more than hold his own against either potential Democratic nominee.

Just because you as a Canadian with liberal sensibilities may not be gung-ho about the Republican party, doesn't mean it's not going to happen. It very well could and I think it will!

P.S. Sorry for the patronizing tone of the last comment. I didn't mean to sound condescending.

Not a problem - no offence taken.
Still, a Republican won't win this time around.

Either way though, I'm just tired of being bombarded with US politics everywhere I go. There is never this much fuss made about Canadian politics, and last I checked, we're in Canada.

It is true, Canadian politics do rather suck. They're just painfully boring compared to U.S. politics. It's like comparing the CFL to the NFL. It's not even close.
