Iowa. So what's the dream scenario for tonight?
January 3, 2008 04:38 PM
I'd just love the Republicans to poll as follows:
(1) Romney, (2) Huckabilly, (3) Ron Paul, (4) Fred Thompson, (5) McCain and (6) Rudy.
Why? Because Romney is the well-rounded conservative in the case (other than Thompson, who can't win). Huckabee at No. 2 because well, that's just where he's going to be if he doesn't get No. 1. I'd like Huckabee to poll lower (last, actually), but that's just not possible. I'd like Ron Paul at No. 3 because I will delight at the gnashing of teeth. Fred at 4 because that's the only way Paul gets the 3 slot, and because Fred needs to drop out. McCain at 5 because we want to burst the latest "we love John McCain" media bubble before New Hampshire gets out of control (if it is not already). And Rudy at 6, just because he's not trying in Iowa at all.
As for the Democrats, I'd love to see:
(1) Obama, (2) Edwards and (3) Hillary.
Why? Because OH MY GOD if Hillary Clinton finishes third it would be just about the happiest day I could possibly ever have. Obama in first because he's not John Edwards and because if Edwards finished first he may actually win the nomination and that would be a disaster because he could actually be elected President. And we do not want that.
Can you imagine what tomorrow morning will be like if Hillary Clinton and Ron Paul both finish third in their respective primaries?
So I'm ready for a glass of wine, a spot on the couch, and Henry (the black lab) in his wing-back chair. Hopefully Shepard Smith is still on vacation. His annoying face is the only thing standing in the way of a great evening.
