“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

TRR weekend opinion question

This week, Hillary was accused of saying to Bill Richardson that Barack Obama couldn't beat McCain in the general election because too many Americans wouldn't vote for a black guy. Of course she denies it and who knows if it really happened that way. She probably said something like, he can't win in the general, and maybe Richardson took it to be about race. Besides, who knows or cares what democrats say to each other in secret? What ever they say, it probably has to do with expanding government, limiting our freedoms, or seizing our taxes.....it's all just different degrees of bad.

That got me thinking though, even though Obama pretty much has a lock on the nomination, much to my delight and amusement, Hillary isn't giving up as she's mathematically still alive. With that in mind here's the weekend TRR poll question. If you want to debate your answers, leave your reasons for voting the way you did, as always in the comments thread, so that the rest of us can ridicule you for it...

Which democrat poses the greatest threat to win in the general against J.Mac.?
Hillary R. Clinton
Barack H. Obama
Ralph Nader(just for fun)

I think Hillary is the biggest threat, buy default. She is more conservative than Obama and will take votes away from McCain. If Obama is the man, many of Hillary's supporters will find McCain a palatable substitute.

I think Obama is the bigger threat. His groupie supporters are extremely devoted. Hillary's supporters seem to be half-hearted and more likely to consider McCain.
BTW I think Obama will win PA. My world is small, but if it is any indication of the rest of the state he has it in the bag. I've seen more than a few Obama shirts, bumper stickers,etc. And then you have the adults showing off pitcures of him while giggling like school girls - and the women like him too- constant chatter praising him.... for breathing I think.
