John McCain Wins The Republican Presidential Nomination

john-mccain.jpgJohn McCain won the Republican Presidential Nomination last night surpassing the required amount of delegates needed to win the Presidential nomination. Chuck Norris eat your heart out, that’s what McCain must be saying, after the aging action hero , made a comment about McCain being the republican nominee, because of his age. McCain is 71 years strong, and the voters feel more secure with him, even though most view him as a more moderate Republican.

McCain had a clean sweep in last nights primaries, winning battle ground state Ohio, Rhode Island, Red State Texas and Liberal State Vermont. McCain has made a remarkable comeback in this race. when the primaries began in Iowa many people wrote him off has the candidate, but he turned that around when he won in New Hampshire and has build momentum since.

Next Stop for McCain is that he will be at the White House to be formally endorsed by President George W Bush. We Know the President will endorse John McCain but is this the endorsement that McCain needs, President Bush is widely berated by the democrats has taking the country in an unnecessary war, but if John McCain is going to be running for President he needs to look to the future and not to the past.

Mike Huckabee Drops Out Of The Republic Presidential Race

Huckabee has known for sometime that he virtually could not win the nomination but he still stayed on until McCain won the required amount of delegates.  In a speech to supporters and the media after the results were made public, Huckabee addressed the crowds, “Ladies and gentlemen,” he said, “I called Senator McCain a few moments ago. It looks pretty apparent tonight that he will, in fact, achieve 1,191 delegates to become the Republican nominee for our party.

“I extended to him not only my congratulations, but my commitment to him and to the party to do everything possible to unite our party, but more importantly to unite our country, so that we can be the best nation we can be,”.

Huckabee really put out a good fight even though he won far fewer delegates than McCain. I think we will see a lot more from this candidate he is only 52 years old and has a lot more fight in him.

Barack Obama The New Rock Star President!

Are we too vain to love this guy. Its like high school all over again, the most popular guy always win even if its the Black Guy. Barack Obama is the fresh faced Charismatic Senator from Illinois who is the Democratic Presidential Nominee. This guy can draw a crowd and give influential speeches, but should that be a cause to fear what he has to say. We should not judge him by his looks and his speech but by his record. He is having the same effect on the younger generation that Former President Bill Clinton had when he was the Governor of Arkansas, and was a presidential hopeful.

The Secrets to his success is that he can connect with younger people more than the other candidates. Atfer Super Tuesday, his rival Hillary Clinton was slightly ahead of him in the delegate counts, he wrestled the lead away from her with a clean sweep winning 11 primaries. Hillary had her sights on Texas and Ohio the states that could put her back in the lead if she won big. The polls today according to CNN showed that despite Hillary having a huge lead over Obama in those polls two weeks ago, he was able to take the lead away from her in Texas by a three point lead, and they are dead lock in Ohio. It seems like whenever Obama campaigns in a place where the polls are low he becomes the front runner. No matter how much they try to smear this guy, nothing sticks.

I think they should just try to work together, and stop the negative campaigning, they are only dividing their party more than it should be. The Republicans Front runner John McCain is probably having a field day watching the Democrats tear each other a part.

So do you want to see a Obama/Clinton, or a Clinton/Obama dream team ticket?
