Just wait and see. Pretty sure no one thought Obama could be president back in 2004. Or 2005, 2006 and half of 2007.
A lot of people loved him after the DNC in 2004, but thought he wouldn't run until 2012ish. He picked up steam in 04 though.
I agree he picked up steam, but if you made a short list of dem candidates in 2005, Obama wasn't in the top 10.
There are plenty of reasons to think Bloomberg could be the President come 2016.
No there aren't, nobody likes the guy. Absolutely no reason to think he could win...at all. Besides Dems are going to have a hell of a time explaining why Romney is evil because he is rich but Bloomberg isn't. Also talk about a guy nobody can relate to...
Bloomberg is a classic wealthy East Coast big city liberal, he fits in at cocktail parties...not the Iowa Caucasus.
Would Ryan and Rubio run together or are they merely opponent alpha male types? I think Rubio is the next president and is obviously another breakthrough in terms of heritage and the white house.
Anybody will run with anybody if it is the best option for both of them. I don't see Ryan on a ticket though, what has he done in this race? These two aren't even going to be able to carry Wisconsin with 8% unemployment.
Bloomberg ran for NYC mayor as a Republican in 2001 and 2005. He's far from a "classic liberal."
Ryan won't ever challenge for national office again. No VP on a losing ticket has ever successfully attained the office of president or VP.
Well he damn sure doesn't stack up to being much of a republican either.
Oh dear lawd baby jesus, Allah, Zeus, et al. don't let her in the White House. Ever!
Exactly. Guy was a Republican and would now be considered a moderate, independent.
Regardless of who wins, I see us facing four more years of gridlock. During that time, the nation will reach its tipping point wrt to polarization and rationality will finally take over and most from both parties will come back to the middle realizing that is the only way we can get things done. Shortly after that, Bloomberg will run for president as an independent. Look for him to finance his own campaign (so he owes no special interest anything) and probably take a salary of $1. He'll be plenty popular.
Nah, we Mericans like Big Gulps
Doesn't matter. My life won't be affected either way. That said, I think Obama gets a second term because of the woman vote.
If Romney wins will it be because of the man vote?
Romney isn't going to win. It doesn't matter what kind of vote. He will lose Ohio and Pennsylvania. Women will vote heavily toward Obama. If you didn't know that, you aren't watching close enough.
Again, I don't care who wins. My life won't be affected either way.
Romney has about the same advantage, in percentage, of male voters as Obama has with female voters.
If you didn't know that, you aren't watching close enough.
Funny because 7-11 is exempt from the NYC soda law.
relevenat quote: "However she added without educating New Yorkers about obesity risks, the ban may not be as effective as officials hope, given people will still be able to buy sugary drinks such as Big Gulps at 7-11 convenience stores."

obama is gonna win this easy.
Right now, Obama has a substantial lead with minorities, women, youth voters and people making under 50k. Romney has whites, men, boomers and evangelicals. Both are, surprisingly, tied with the elderly.
While national polling has them in a statistical tie, state polls are significantly favoring Obama. All he needs to win is the states he's heavily favored in and toss-ups (he's marginally favored in) Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio. And that's the ball game.
Romney on the other hand, would have to take traditionally red states, the rest of the toss-ups and flip Pennsylvania (where several polls have Obama polling between 3-6 points ahead of Romney)
All ballots haven't been cast yet, but the deck is stacked in Obama's favor and a Romney win would be a statistical anomaly at this point.
Yep obama has this in the bag.
It's amazing what flooding an area with another country's citizens will do for ya.
If Obama does win, it's really bad for us conservatives. If we can't win this election we are probably screwed going forward, especially since the dems have successfully flooded so much of the country with third world collectivist. It's cool though it will be the Democrats that oversee the demise of our country and perhaps the rest of the world will take note. Maybe America will be the canary in the coal mine for the world on leftist ideologies and when it becomes apparent that leftist have destroyed a superpower perhaps mankind will finally rid itself of this God awful ideology.
You sound like this guy...
First of all, I take issue with the assertion that any American with the right to vote is less deserving of that right, or the right to call themselves an American.
Second of all, I think this election will hopefully do great things for the Republican party. A Romney loss coupled with Akin and Mourdock losses in red states will be loud statements aimed at the Republican party that we are not interested in crazed evangelicals, that minorities have a voice, and women are tired of fighting for their rights 100 years after they were allowed to vote.
For the republican party to remain relevant, changes will have to be made and I hope they are for the better...
Vegas odds this morning:
he wouldn't let his players pose in the Playboy All-American magazine edition, he said, "Cause you can't play football with an erection."
