I have written quite a lot about the ongoing primaries on the blog at www.aip.nu
. Unfortunately, my original dream scenario will never come true: Al Gore
as the Democratic presidential nominee, running with Barack Obama
as Vice Prez. When the election is won with an enlarged majority in Congress, Hillary Clinton
becomes Majority leader in the Senate, with Nancy Pelosi
as Speaker of the House.
In this scenario, the best candidate would have become President, and with Obama as Vice Prez, it would have been a historic ticket. And with Clinton and Pelosi running the Congress on the Hill, the legislature would be in the hands of two strong and very competent women. You may say I’m a dreamer, but isn’t it a nice scenario.
OK, but with the situation we have know, I think the Democratic party has two awesome candidates in Clinton and Obama, but eventually I think Hillary Clinton
will win. And she will face John McCain
. But that is my guess for know, after the Michigan primary tonight we will know more about how the GOP-side is developing.
To be continued...
