These days, you'll find your typical right-wingnut's obsession is Hillary Clinton in 2008. Why? Some likely reasons: 1) because they're fixated on hating Clintons (The Hate continues....), 2) she is both very much liked and disliked (wingnuts thrive on divide and strident partisanship; they despise a warm-and-fuzzy middle -- see reaction to filibuster compromise), and 3) the big reason: GW is doing horribly, so best to focus on anything else.

As for me, I haven't yet and I won't comment on any matter having to do with the presidential race in 2008. Why? BECAUSE IT'S TOO EARLY. Duh! So much can happen in the next few years, what's the point? Why don't we attempt to guess who will win the Super Bowl in 2008 -- exactly, it's stupid.

In the meantime, there's lots going on in the here and now.

I will at least state that unlike the right wingnuts, I can be for someone no matter the political party. Example: John McCain. The New Yorker recently had a lengthy article on him. If it weren't for the religious right, he would most certainly have been the GOP presidential contender in 2000 (read the article). He's not a bought-and-paid-for mouthpiece for special interests like Bush/Cheney, and he believes global warming is real and requires immediate government action.

Enough of that for at least the next year or two.
