What is the deal with Barack Obama? Why does this guy have so much buzz, when as far as I can tell, he’s never actually accomplished anything as a law maker. Apparently the only thing he’s ever done is give a mediocre speech at the DNC, and yet he’s a frontrunner in the race for Democratic candidate for president. What?!? I swear John Edwards gives better speeches, and at least he could bring 15 electoral votes from NC. The Democrats already took Illinois in ’04. In order to beat McCain in ’08, the Dems will need all the help they can get.
The Republicans have two very strong candidates in Rudy Giuliani and McCain. I think Giuliani would definitely win a general election, but he may be too liberal to win the primary. McCain is most likely going to take the primary with ease.
But who knows, maybe Obama could beat him. Like I said, I don’t get what the buzz is all about, and I don’t know if it can be sustained all the way till Nov ’08. I wish someone could explain to me what all this fuss a first term senator out of Illinois seems to be mustering up.
