The most recent Gallup Poll is clear: Senator Clinton remains the #1 national Democrat. Here are the results between Clinton, Obama, and Edwards assuming no Gore candidacy:

  1. Clinton: 48%
  2. Obama: 23%
  3. Edwards: 14%

As Cubs fans know, pennants are not won in April. Nor are national elections.

Yet Yankees fans also know that some teams look better in April than others. And there is a reason.

But all baseball fans know there is a reason the games are played on the field and not on paper.

A baseball analogy! Fun!

Here's a picture of a young Cliff Schecter and what he thinks of early polls.


Oh...and as far as the Cubs....pennants aren't won in April or any other time for the Cubs. ;-)

Well put! I can't take it all already. It's too early.

Since I live in Illinois, the Primary is already decided before it gets to me. So, it doesn't matter who wins...

If it wasn't for the money, I think Edwards would have a better shot. He's the only one of this group who has shown any balls when it comes to the right wing. I said earlier that I thought he didn't think he had the fight in him to win. I was dead wrong on that! He's the only one who has been consistent and on target.

Hillary has been a wimp and I think she feels as if this nomination is owed to her. I'm not liking her or her campaign so far. Of course, if she wins the nomination,I'll vote for her for Prez over any Republican.

Either way, I think Edwards has earned the right to be considered very seriously in this race.

Yeah, we have a cornucopia of riches. We get to parse the advantages of Hillary or Barak or John, while the Rethugs have to find the least little positive bit of ANY of their candidates. I'm just chuckling. I'll take Hillary, Barak, John, Bill R., etc., and be relatively happy. There are NO rethugs I would consider for Assistant Water Commissioner (for all those who have the first CLUE about this reference).

I agree with you 100% No matter which Democrat runs, we have a winner. Republicans only have wieners.

BTW, I got my first call from the Obama camp today. I told them that he doesn't have my vote yet, but he hasn't lost it yet either. I'm still pissed about his voting for that bankruptsy bill. That was a travesty, and then he was part of the Bush photo op when he signed it. It turned my stomach...voting for Rice for Secretary of State didn't help either. Neither will keep me from voting for him for President if he is our chosen candidate, however.

It's too early. I don't like early polls, and I really don't like that the so-called news media rely on them to make headlines. Here we go again, with the horse race being more important than what the candidates stand for.

But I do agree with ME and J.A.N.Barbara: I'm happy with our team. I'm excited to see our first debate. Then I'll see if my emotions match up with my logic.
