Four years ago in the Call-Me-Cynical post, I predicted McCain and Obama to be the nominees for the two political parties. That prediction proved correct. At one point during the 2008 campaign season (one long year), it may have been a toss up who would win. And then McCain put Palin on the ticket. Of course, 2008 is history.
At that time, in off the record conversations with friends, I said the Republican leadership told Romney to back off until 2012 and let McCain take the fall for 2008. Wish now I had also put that in my prediction.
It is a given that Obama will be the Democatic party nominee. No great surprise that Romney has already been declared the nominee for the Repulicans. Okay. So they didn't announce it. How about making it official and end the incessant political ads and rambling of the political talk shows.
The ordeal isn't over. There are 10 long months ahead to the elections.
How about an alternative to the usual suspects who wish to be US President.... Scott Adams -- the creator of the comic strip Dilbert -- would be an excellent choice. Adams blogged his Presidential bid on November 16th. There have been about half dozen blog posts since then detailing his qualifications and how he will operate as President. One of those was his Presidential Update. In a recent entry, he outlines Why You Should Vote For Scott Adams.
