The field

Man, I grow more and more unimpressed with the potential presidential candidates. Have they always been this bad/shallow or am I just understanding more now that I am older?

I am particularly disturbed with what McCain did in West Virgina yesterday.

Quick recap if your not familiar.

* West Virgina was the earliest poll to close yesterday, It seems like they called Virgina around 4pm central time

* John McCain, Sensing he would loose the state; told his delegates to cast vote for Huckabee

* He basically conceded the state; But gave his delegates to Huckabee, Not cuz he wanted to see Huckabee do well but to BLOCK Romney from winning the state.

* West Virgina which was clearly Mit Romneys state to loose goes instead to Huckabee in an upset early in the day before voters had turned out in the other states to vote.

This early decision caused voters in the rest of the south to consider Huckabee rather than Romney or McCain a viable canidate thus splitting the vote.

This move seemed to come so natural to McCain; As if it were some kind of underhanded deal he had participated in many times in Washington. Now, the GOP “front-runner” is a guy who is so by doing a back door deal.

Now who do we vote for? The republican democrat or the democrat democrat Iam confused. If McCain gets the nod I am gonna have to vote for Obama out of shear “through my hands up in the air, hope for the best desperation”.
