"There is no doubt ... we hope and pray every night to run against Hillary Clinton," - Ari Fleischer (h/t Andrew Sullivan)
Update: Some at Red State share the fear of Obama:
"I don't know about the rest of y'all, but this guy freakin' scares me to death.... something tells me we should all start praying that the She-Devil pulls this thing out."
"Obama would be a DISASTER if we faced him in November. You better hope and pray for Hillary."
Americans don't like Republicans - and disagree with their positions on all of the important issues.
Americans don't like Democrats because they don't stand up to Republicans, even though they favor Democratic positions over Republican ones.
How do Democrats in Congress respond? By voting for Republican bills despite the fact that Republicans vote as a block against virtually all Democratic bills.
McCain says that Congress can not and should not force the president from Iraq, and that we should stay there until their country is a stable democracy.
In 1994, McCain said that Congress must force the president from Somalia, and that we should not wait for their country to become a stable democracy.
So much for the "straight talk express."
I was just checking out the current odds on the GOP nomination at the Intrade site, when the following information jumped out at me a bit:
Just last week it seemed like the Republicans were in a 4 way contest, which was bound to drag out far beyond Super Tuesday possibly even up to the convention (or so they said). McCain had somewhat of a lead in the polls, but I thought that was negated by the fact that the entire base of the Republican Party movement hates his guts.
Now it looks like it is all but over.
Then again, Intrade is just speculation. Who knows.
Tell Rush Limbaugh I send him my condolences.
