"How could a liberal be distraught over this election? It’s a win-win, for the most part."

So you're claiming there's no difference between someone who's roughly in the middle (McCain) and someone who's way to the left (Obama)?

There’s a difference, sure. But ultimately the average of the current candidates will be in the 30s-40s on the liberal scale (using 2006 numbers).

For the same situation to be presented to conservatives (were the conservatism of the candidates reversed) would be:

* Mary Landrieu (D) on the Democrat ticket, and
* Mitch McConnell (R) and Graham Lindsay (R).

Landrieu isn’t the closest to compare - that would be Olympia Snowe. In other words, Landrieu MIGHT win, but we’d also have McConnell and Lindsay running hot campaigns while Landrieu would be attacked constantly from her own party.

And not to mention the 2007 numbers make it even better. We would have the likes of John Cornyn or Jim DeMint ligthing up crowds with an message of CHANGE.

Liberals have to be loving this.

No doubt!!!! Lest anyone gets confused, McCain is my LAST choice. But he beats Hitlery or ObombUs any day of the week.

We owe it to our troops that have sacrificed life and limb to keep the “cut and run” Dims far far away from the position of CIC. Even if that means holding you nose and voting for McCain.
