>Kerplunk writes off the chances of three US Presidential candidates

>Sitting here in the World’s Most Liveable City of Melbourne and looking over the Pacific at the campaign for each party’s US presidential nomination I am already prepared to write off the chances of three of the big names that are running.

John McCain – Too old. Too grumpy. Too divisive. Too bad. Won’t be in the race for much longer.

John Edwards
– Bad news about his wife but is pressing on regardless. Waaaaay too left wing to get elected. Being significantly out-fund raised by Obama and Hillary. No hope. Gone.

Hillary Clinton – Oooooh. A big call but why? I don’t understand why people refer to her as being so intelligent. That never comes across in her speeches – she’s similar to George W Bush in that way – and is as boring as can be. Add into the equation that she is not ‘presidential’ and the fact that Obama got so close in the money raising campaign, which spells bad news for her, and I’m prepared to write her off early.

So there you go. I think that the Democratic Party desperately needs a new candidate – one that is electable. I’m not prepared to write off Obama just yet even though he has said nothing on any of the issues. Like Edwards, he’s way too far left to be elected. Maybe Al Gore will see the opportunity and make a run. On the Republican side it will be interesting if Fred Thompson enters the race.

    >McCain has the same problem he’s had since he started running in the 90s. He can’t be trusted. Nobody knows what he would do in the White House. You’re correct about Edwards. And Hillary? She’s the most hated human being in the US. If you think we mobilized against Kerry, just wait and see what happens if Hillary wins the nomination. It will make Kerry’s run look like a birthday party.

    >I am hoping beyond hope that a rabid nationilist, constitutionalist will run on a platform of giving our enemies a real war and enforcing the treason laws against members of Congress who give aid and comfort to our enemies, and who visit dictators of terrorist states against the policies of the United States to start a “dialogue” (Pelosi). I think someone like this has a real chance of winning. Someone who has the guts to talk very plainly and very tough and not hide behind political smooth talk. Someone who would answer the question: “what would you do as President if a country which promotes global terror illegally siezed the soldiers or seamen of a NATO ally in international waters?” this way: “Well Sir, that would be an act of war, I would ask Congress for a declaration of war and then turn that country into the surface of the moon”.I really wish someone like this would run. Someone who doesn’t care about the special interest groups and can put America first in their decision making. Of course, there is no one like this from either party, perhaps an independent, but who?

    >Someone you need to look at who could win in a landslide is Fred Thompson- if he decides to get back into politics.

    >Please, Fred? With sugar on top?

    >Who cares which one of them wins? American presidential races are a power struggle between two different wings of the same ruling elite. No matter which side wins it never does a damn thing to help the average working person. So fuck it.
