So Barack H. Obama has claimed enough delegates to be considered the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party.
Isn't that just peachy!
For a conservative like me, it actually is.
You see, Obama, a liberal's wet dream, is the worst possible candidate the Dems could put up against John S. McCain, III, the presumptive Republican nominee.
Obama is a first-term Senator that was elected after the Republican, Jack Ryan, dropped out over a sex scandal. As a Senator, he's pushed through such major initiatives as ... the "Democratic Republic of the Congo Relief, Security, and Democracy Promotion Act of 2006," as well as ... well, that seems to be it.
Oh, in fairness, he has supported some initiatives that failed. Like the "Iraq War De-Escalation Act of 2007," a cut-and-run piece of legislation that helps make Obama the darling of our nation's enemies.
Yeah, that's his experience.
John McCain will eat his lunch based on that factor alone.
Obama being the standard-bearer of the Democratic party means that the Republicans will keep the White House for another 4 years.
I, for one, am pleased.
