Newsweek: Bottom line on Candidates

with 3 comments

Newsweek published thoughts on the “win – ability” of each candidate for the Presidency, followed by one-line summaries. Here are the one-liners on the leaders from both parties – click thru on the link for details. (Hint: I found the link to this article in an Obama email)

clipped from

Rudy Giuliani
Bottom Line
Unless the United States is attacked again by terrorists close to the election, a risky choice for Republicans.

Mitt Romney
Bottom Line
If anti-Mormon Republicans stay home, it’s hard to see how he makes it in November.

Mike Huckabee
Bottom Line
A big risk, but he’s got potential appeal to Reagan Democrats, which might be the only way for the GOP to hold the White House.

John McCain
Bottom Line
If there’s major news from abroad in 2008, he’s the GOP’s best shot. If not, he’s not.

John Edwards
Bottom Line
Looks safer, but at least as big a risk in general election as Clinton or Obama.

Hillary Clinton
Bottom Line
She can win, but she’ll need to run a near-flawless fall campaign.

Barack Obama
Bottom Line
A roll of the dice, but the only one with a decent chance for a landslide.

  1. He apparently lost the last round, but a about %3, or less. I don’t know maybe when I wake up tomorrow it will not be so.

  2. I want Obama. That’s all I’m a-sayin!

    Monte Says: I’m with you. It could bring a transformation, I think, in foreign policy and domestic progress, having a President known for his ability to hear what people are saying. Happy gnu to you too, Su!
