The person most responsible for obama’s win was Mike Huckabee. His strong anti-abortion message took Evangelical Christian Conservative Primary votes away from Fred Thompson, and by splitting those Conservative votes, it left mclame standing, and 15,000,000 Conservatives stayed home in November because they couldn’t stomach mclame.
I wouldn’t blame Huckabee. The Dems were better organized. They crossed over and voted for McCain in N.H. and S.C. Then the primary race was over.
