What a sorry field of candidates. Nothing is ever certain in politics, but I believe Obama will be easily reelected.

The field looks pretty bad until you compare them to the current liar-in-chief and his army of corruptocrats. There has to be a third party candidate somewhere that can blow the other two parties out of the water and actually work for the American people instead of the various special interests (SEIU, Wall Street, Defense Contractors, AARP, Trial Lawyers, Mortgage Bankers, Chamber of Commerce, Immigration Attorneys, etc......) When you look at the overall picture-it is just plain dismal. No matter what, Obozo will NEVER get my vote. Not that it matters, since California is already in his pocket.

The only two I would give any consideration to at all are Gary Johnson and Ron Paul. The rest represent a return to Bush like policies, which were much worse than what we have now. As long as the R's put up neocon ideologues, they will never get my vote.
