All the talk about the mojo being with Barack or swinging to Hillary. Mindless babble really. The fact is that this thing is going to the convention in Denver in August. Neither will have the 2025 to get over the hump before they get to Colorado.
Neither will cede to the other. Both are still going to spend money 'til they equal the equivalent of the GDP of most small nations. Their workers will be totally exhausted beyond exhaustion. Then, just when you think they've won, the winning candidate will have exactly 90 days to win a general election against a guy that will have been campaigning from March to November.
The Republicans will be forming policy, making policy, changing policy and raising money like there's no tomorrow....because for them, there is no tomorrow. Compare that to a candidate that will have to come up with a full-blown campaign stategy, a vice-presidential nominee and new-found ways to raise even more money. All that in a compact time frame. Sounds like the Dems will be broke for a couple years to come.
And, the question of the day is: How does one campaign for the working poor, the homeless, the needy losing their homes and a new economic outlook for the country when they just blew $150 million dollars each trying to win a nomination?
My goodness. John Edwards has to be just shaking his head right about now.
