That SNL appearance did hurt him for a future try at National Office, I am sure of it.

I believe the last brokered convention was with Wendell Winkie in 1944 (40?). He wasn't even a candidate for Prez but the convention was split and they nominated him as a prominent economist/compromise. At least that's what I can remember from the history books.

I think there's a good chance we could go through Super Tuesday and still not have a presumptive nominee; the Rats give out delegates proportionally in all states, I think, so without winner-take-all the delegate count is much closer.

Regan did step down in 1976 before the count, correct?

Shareholders (of publicly held companies where he spoke) should also be up in arms. Especially since this Cloonatic's speeches have apparently been hidden from public view.

He could not stand the heat as an early runner.

Neither can the Hilldebea$t. So they will sit on the sidelines and watch their fellow rats eat each other up with our help.

Then they will be ready for some draft in 2004.

Hillary leads the field by 25 points, it would mae sense for her to step forward at the convention.

Didn't the Dems have a pretty nasty convention in 1980 when Teddy Kennedy tried to usurp Jimmy Carter? I seem to remember that convention being a bit unruly.

I do think there is a high probability that the Dems will go through the primaries without a clear winner emerging.

My guess is that Gephardt will take Iowa and many midwestern states, Kerry will probably get New England although Dean may pull some from him, Dean could do well in the West where the far left has a real stronghold in the democratic party. As for the Southern states, I don't see Edwards really gaining traction there so perhaps those states get split up too. The primaries are really front loaded and if they all stay in, then they could easily be split up among the many candidates.

In any event, it's going to be very fun to watch. I'm loving Al Sharpton and Dean is giving Kerry and Edwards grief about their vote for the Iraq resolution. I just love it when they eat their own.

On another note...I think the GOP is pretty united at this point. At least here in Washington State it seems the party is finally realizing that it doesn't do us any good to fight amongst ourselves. We are aggressively recruiting candidates for Senate and Governor and hope to have a SINGLE candidate up and running by July 1 of this year. If we can avoid the nasty primary battles we've had of late, we can win.

Reagan came amazingly close to unseating a sitting President, which is as Peggy Noonan put it, "a very un-Republican thing to do."

At least Reagan was playing "boot the RINO."

If GW is still running strong, she will let someone else get shredded.

If his poll numbers are really down, she will manuever a draft the Hilldebea$t behind doors.

The NY Slimes, DC Compost, LA Slimes and of course ABCNNBCBS will be beating the drums for her being drafted.

She can't stand a primary with people and a few reporters coming after her. Also, she knows that conservatives would rip her a new one based on her past and everytime she opened her mouth.

Since she can't automatically become Queen, she will manuever a draft for her if Carvile feels the timing is right.

Hillary's chances will be better next time, unless something weird happens between now and election day.

Although I wouldnt put a VP shot out of the question..

Well, his numbers are not very good in his OWN state. He's got less than 50% thinking he should be re-elected for his Senate seat. The numbers are even worse for his run for the Presidency.

But then, what do I know? It's hard for me to understand the democrats. LOL!
