Illinois is already completed, so my state is out.
But if you live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Oregon, North Carolina, Wisconsin, etc. left in the Democrat party primaries. With Obama and Clinton fairly close, but Obama winning by large margins lately.
Would conservatives be better off entering the Democrat primaries they can participate in to vote for Hillary and keep it close or vote for Obama to help him get a huge delegate lead and end the Clinton's stranglehold that has been over the Democrat party since 1992.
Conservatives who can't support McCain and nothing else really left to decide nationally, other than the number of delegates Huckabee and Ron Paul will get.
With Romney endorsing McCain encouraging his delegates to McCain as payback for Huckabee undercutting Romney throughout the primary. Huckabee, game over.
Obama. Hillary is both evil and effective. Obama is vacuous and hopefully ineffective.
Hell no. Vote for Huck and defeat McQueeg. Force a brokered convention.
I disagree. Everyone hates Hillary, but Obama is naive. That makes him dangerous. He’s said the first thing he will do is go to our enemies like Syria to try and talk to them. Even Hillary sees how stupid that is.
Obama. Just like Clintons, he wants to be loved, but doesn’t have the machine to be feared. In Washington, it makes all the difference.
They both want the same things, Clintons will be better at couching and pushing them through.
And we’ll be essentially done with the Clintons, and with the “blacks have no power” issues. Two (or more) birds in one election cycle.
Vote for Hillary if only to insure both of them go into the nomination bloodied, bereft and bankrupt.
The screwed around in our primary now its time to pay them back with pain.
I think you should cast your vote for the one who is behind at the time. You want to throw the decision into their convention. The results of a brokered convention will be sure to p.o. half of them.
She’d be easier to beat and, really, she wouldn’t be nearly as awful a President as Obama. Between her and Obama, it’s like choosing between Clinton and Jimmy Carter. At least ol’ Billy Blythe wasn’t ALWAYS a complete fool. Nor, thank God, is either he or she (and who knows where he ends and she begins) an idealist at heart?
Obama, based upon his background, is either Chauncey Gardner from “Being There” or someone playing a very, very careful and long game. Either is more frightening than Clinton 2.0.
Until Romney endorsed McCain today I would have agreed with you. Most Romney delegates will do what their candidate wants. McCain does better in blue states and Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont with battleground states like Ohio and Wisconsin that would lean McCain is too much to expect that McCain won’t get the number of delegates he needs which is less than 100 now.
Hillary or Obama is the only race left unless you have a Senate, Congressional or Governor’s race in your state at the same time.
Conservatives should NEVER vote for liberal Democrats.
Let the Democrats mess up their own party.
Your vote only gets added to the total to ‘prove’ the liberals are getting more and more support.
Better plan: Use for vote as a GOP primary vote to SEND A MESSAGE. Vote for your favorite cosnervative GOP candidate whoever it is! LEt the powers that be know that there are conservatives out there who want to vote CONSERVATIVE.
You cant send that message by wasting your vote helping Obama become president or saving Hillary from disgrace.
CONSERVATIVES SHOULD VOTE FOR CONSERVATIVES.
I hope most Romney delegates have more sense then to take Romney’s advice.
The time and effort expended in this exercise in futility would be better spent on grassroots support for getting actual conservatives on ballots and getting elected to Congress.
Are you on crack, he’s a muslim.
Are you not supporting conservative congressmen? That is the ONLY type I support.
If you’re interested in getting a liberal with an R next to their name elected you have to vote for Mrs. Clinton.
The RNC is hoping that conservatives animosity towards her will energize the base and force them to vote for their liberal.
Get on the RNC Hillary bandwagon...MONICA LEWINSKY’S EX BOYFRIENDS WIFE FOR PRESIDENT!!!!
“Hillary or Obama is the only race left unless you have a Senate, Congressional or Governors race in your state at the same time.”
BS, there are a LOT more important races than that!!!!
Folks listen up: The Presidential nominee of today was a state or local guy 10 or 20 years ago ... you need to vote for the conservative in every race from dogcatcher to US Senate. There are always important primary races, so dont be fooled into thinking the Prez race is important. It’s not for the reason that you cannot influence much anyway. Your vote will not count! like in Texas, it is proportional representation. So a slight shift in totals means nothing.
OTOH you can have a big impact choosing conservatives in the small down-ballot races.
Conservatives should vote for conservatives, not marxist empty suits or feminazi crones.
“The time and effort expended in this exercise in futility would be better spent on grassroots support for getting actual conservatives on ballots and getting elected to Congress.”
WELL SAID. And that is also a good retort to the misguided idea to vote Democrat. Never ever ever ever do that.
Vote Dem now so it will be easier in Nov. Go Ann
Hillary, she rules...
As bad as either of them might be Barry is a sinister man, there is something so deep in him as to be dangerous.
If you are going to vote in the dem primary vote HRC.
