This doesn't really matter, as the one that won the origianl primary is hated and the one that is winning the delegate count is disqualified by his past associations from winning a General Election.

Welcome to President John McCain.

I don't like Granholm. When I was in college she took away a good amount of my Michigan Scholarship because of budget cuts, so for me, it's almost personal. Maybe the economy would be better if you put more money towards education!*rolls eyes*
Yeah, she ran on the education platform and says education is the reason MI is losing jobs. Well the Mexicans are so much smarter then. My last job went to India and I have a Masters degree. The MI scholarship grants just expired because no one bothered to renew them. It is ridiculous what a POOR job she is doing!

Their existence makes about as much to me as Jewish Nazi sympathizers or African-American slave traders.
Do you REALLY want to go back to the kitchen, and spend your life barefoot and pregnant? Do you REALLY want to go back to a world where marriage is a license to rape? Do you REALLY want to go back to a world where you can lose your daughter to a rusty coathanger when she realizes her ignorant racist parents could never accept a black grandchild?
Oh yes, I nearly forgot another "female republican"-type oxymoron... "conservative intellectual"
Wow, who damaged you? I am so sorry for the painful life you must lead. I will be praying for you.

Trust me, if your god is listening (and the current state of the world strongly suggests otherwise), there are far more important things you might wish to pray for; Sanity, for instance!

The democratic party fucked themselves by taking away delegates from Michigan and Florida. I don't care if the Democratic party officials messed up in those states. Who does anybody think they are to take away the power behind a citizens vote. Revoking the meaning a vote is not good publicity and is why the democratic party is stupid.

What do you mean?

It worked well enough for the neotards in 2000 and 2004! Can you say "hanging chads" or "voter caging"?

Apparently, the Republicans only maintain their power because their constituency has the memory span of a goldfish....

Now, how is it that you can make intelligent, sensible points, here, but be such a neotard sheep in the other Topics?
Here is a nice little bit of data for you to cogitate upon: BOTH parties are controlled by the same corporate money, and NONE of the current candidates for president have YOUR interests in mind, much less any interest in the Constitution they will solemnly swear to defend and uphold.
If you will only turn off Fox Noise network and see what these people have done to our Nation for yourself, you will find that your interests and my own are quite similar.
No Fox news here, and thanks for the back-handed compliment.

And I thought I was cynical about our 2 party gov't. lol

I agree, our votes really don't matter any more.

PS For the one who stated they should vote GOP because of this mess, if you vote for McCain, you will still be voting Democrat, as he's not a true conservative.
