The whole Karl Rove tactics talk is all funny until you see that the Democratic candidates for president really may be beating each other up so bad that — assuming Obama wins the nomination — nearly 30% of Clinton supporters polled would defect from the party and support McCain. Unbelievable. And with McCain being such a weak candidate, this bodes even worse for the Democratic party in state and local elections. Once again — the two party system proves to be B.S. and it comes down to the lesser of two evils for most voters.
Seems unfair and silly to see NBC and the Nevada Supreme Court shut Dennis Kucinich out of tonight’s debate in Las Vegas, in a last-minute appeal, no less.
Kucinich always has good things to say and is a refreshing voice with (in many cases) a healthy, progressive perspective. But as the trend has been — super-hot wife or not — dude is too short.
Perhaps this is another reason why you need Perot- or Bloomberg-like billions to get the media establishment accept you as a third-party candidate.
If you’re like me and don’t have cable — click here to watch a live stream (no ads even) of MSNBC’s debate online, moderated by Brian Williams. So far, pretty interesting.
