O’Bama Sweeps Potomac Primaries

The Potomac Primaries (Maryland, Virginia, DC) were more of the same:  O’Bama wins and She Who Must Not Be Named shuffles people around as those in the shadows speak of ”firewalls” and so forth.

For O’Bama, it’s 20 of the last 28 in his column.  He has officially grabbed the “pledged” delegate lead and has indeterminable “mo-” at this point, making March 4 another Super Tuesday if SWMNBN goes down! 

What’s great about this is that O’Bama has not been vetted, has nothing new to offer substantively, and puts Dems and moderates in a tough spot if a national security issue pops up in the Fall:  the old war vet with decades experience in Congress or the new guy with nothing to offer other than “hope” and “change,” who happens to have not a single major piece of legislation with his name on it.

I don’t know … While Obama is an absolute rookie with no real credentials, I am worried about him being the Dem nominee in a country that celebrates “American Idol” each week and thinks that the series finale of “Seinfeld” should be a national event. In his primary, he blew by the far-more-qualified candidates — Dodd, Biden, Richardson, and even Kucinich had better credentials than he, Clinton, or Edwards.

Actually, any one of those is better qualified than Clinton, Obama, and Edwards COMBINED.

He has charisma, though. And I’m afraid that that really might get him an election, especially if he’s running against an rather uncharismatic Sen. McCain. Clinton’s massive negatives would be an asset to the GOP in November. I’m not at all sure that we’ll beat Obama based simply on the fact that he’s not really qualified to be President.

Obama is probably the most vapid, empty suit candidate the Democrats have run since Jimmah…but he still can win, especially since McCain will be the presumptive Republican nominee.

I’m no big fan of McCain, but it would be much worse to elect Obama or the witch. McCain could better the situation by choosing a great Veep and actually pay attention to conservatives. If he does neither, it will be a bloodbath and we could very well be having one of the two Democrats as our next president.

And for the record, I do not believe that SWMNBN is out of it yet. The Super-Delegate issue comes into play, plus I think we will see the Democrat Uncivil War rachetted up in the coming months to levels we haven’t yet seen….we’ll see.
