Unless something very strange happens, Bush will win re-election. The Democrats have only themselves to blame for their loss. Unfortunately, by nominating a pandering, vapid sack of hot air, they were unable to clearly differentiate themselves from the incumbent and offer “movable voters” a clear, strong alternative.
Here’s hoping for the rise of some viable third-party alternatives. Of course, to fuel this we’ll need an involved populous, and I’m not holding my breath on that.
