Wherein some left wing friends write and ask for my take...

Two of NBS's college friends are of the liberal persuasion. Occassionally, we write each other to find out how the other side is handicapping issues of electoral politics. Here's my take on the Democrats:
As for my friends, one is leading more towards Hillary, and the other appears undecided between Hillary and Barack.
I think either Hillary or Barack could easily win the general election. They both have a lot of baggage, as you so humorously noted [ed. he had described her as "having more baggage than a Samsonite outlet store"]. I can tell you that the general public does not yet know that Barack's middle name is Hussein. If you all nominate him, every man, woman and child will know that by election day, and it will be a big problem for him. Some of the attorneys here were talking about Obama a few weeks ago, and I said I thought his middle name would be an issue for the electorate. They were like "what is his middle name?" and as soon as I said Hussein, mouths fell open and one person said "you have got to be f***ing kidding me." And that's the attorney crowd talking. Can you imagine what the NASCAR crowd will say?
His wife, however? Neither nappy headed, nor a ho.
