Today is the day we may see a presumptive nominee emerge from both parties as primaries are held in nearly half the states including Connecticut.
It appears to me the McCain has an advantage here in Connecticut, although I am voting for Romney. I believe Romney is closer to me politically than McCain, who in essence, is a liberal.
I think The Great One, Mark Levin said it best:
"Of course, it’s one thing to overlook one or two issues where a candidate seeking the Republican nomination as a conservative might depart from conservative orthodoxy. But in McCain’s case, adherence is the exception to the rule — McCain-Feingold (restrictions on political speech), McCain-Kennedy (amnesty for illegal aliens), McCain-Kennedy-Edwards (trial lawyers’ bill of rights), McCain-Lieberman (global warming legislation), Gang of 14 (obstructing change to the filibuster rule for judicial nominations), the Bush tax cuts, and so forth. This is a record any liberal Democrat would proudly run on. Are we to overlook this record when selecting a Republican nominee to carry our message in the general election?"
I have seen varying polls in Connecticut concerning Clinton and Obama, each new one giving the edge to a different candidate. After seeing the kind of crowd Obama pulled in last night, one has to acknowledge the traction he has, particularly with younger Democrats. I am not so certain that showing will translate directly into a primary victory for him in this state, or in the awarding of the majority of delegates today for that matter. In fact, I will go out on a limb here, and predict a Clinton victory in Connecticut, and an overall victory for her as well.
I will not predict a McCain victory here in Connecticut. If the Giants can beat the Patriots, Romney can pull out a victory here today.
One thing I ask of all the candidates is that there be no more more photos showing any of their nipples.
