    Instead of arguing about who the best candidate is (kind of pointless) why don't we just post who IS going to win. Not your wishlist, but the expected outcome. Then we gonna check back in November to see who had the best prognosis...

    I said it a year ago and I don't see anything why I should change my prediction, so I still stick with:

    It is going to be Hillary vs. Romney, Hillary winning....

    Why? Because there is no real difference among the frontrunners and MONEY TALKS....
  2. I think Romney will beat Hillary. But that's not what I want to happen....
  3. I also think Hillary vs. Romney. I think the race will be very tight and the VP selections might come into play.

    It's amazing to me how much the media wants to say that both of these candidates are out of it. Hillary had a little hiccup in Iowa, but is back on track.

    For all the "no GOP front-runner" talk, everyone sure treats Romney as if he's the guy to beat.

    It's between those two, and too close to call, but I'd vote Romney over Hillary.
  4. Romney won in Wyoming and finished second in Iowa and NH. He has been strong in every primary/caucus. Definitely the person to beat.

    That said, we'll have to watch Florida. Rudy Giuliani is going all out in Florida and was leading in the latest polls (before NH primary). If Rudy can pull off a "surprise" victory there a week before Super Tuesday, he should be able to win. But it may be hard to win when your strategy is to lose for the first 3 or 4 weeks (and he wasn't even in double digits in NH) and then win the whole thing in one week. But stranger things have happened.
  5. Then we gonna check back in November to see who had the best prognosis...

    Since we are going to check back in November.

    My prediction - Hillary will drop out.
  6. I just know that I'll be watching Fox News for the best fair and balanced political coverage in the market. If you want to know the truth, watch Fox News. They know how to cut through the clutter and get to the real hard facts. Fox News, your fair and balanced network. They get the ratings, because when people want to know what's happening, they tune in to Fox News.
  7. What makes you say that? I don't think it's going to happen . . . the competition from Obama is only going to rile her up, and make her work harder. The nomination is hers to lose.
  8. Well, tbh, when I read somewhere that McCain and crew were watching Fox during the NH elections he suddenly dropped from my ladder of possible, trustworthy presidents.

    1. It is easier to bet on losers than winners.

    2. Thread asked for the winners.
