A U.S. Election Foresight
September 5, 2008 1 Comment
I think John McCain and Sarah Palin will win the 2008 U.S. Presidential elections, and the reason is clear: Palin’s wit and rhetoric offsets Obama’s. She is a woman who rose from the ranks of Alaska’s middle-class reaching the highest position of the state at her own steam.And with her timing being just now, the people will be more interested to get to know her better through the campaign season, leaving Obama dying to get an interview.
Palin provides the Republican momentum, and if to campaign extensively, Palin, a woman herself like Clinton, may swing key Democratic states that leaned towards Hillary during the primaries, such as California and New York. And these two states alone may spell the electoral vote difference between McCain and Obama.
Obama’s momentum died shortly after Gustav and when Palin was introduced by the Republican party, an interesting timing for them. Now, people all across America will try to get to know her and shall see this move as a way of the Republican Party to open up its leadership ranks to their gender co-equals.
Palin’s Bush-like charisma shall carry her strong with the help of all the Republican states, which clung to Bush last elections, and with the states of New York and California, states with great percentage of women voters. Palin gets the soccer, hockey, and bowling moms, too.
I predict another Republican Victory this November.
(Note: I am a Filipino so I am voting. But I am not as well encouraging people to vote either way, though, honestly, I lean much steeper towards the Dems.)
P.S.: McCain’s record will begin to reveal itself come campaign.
