I don’t like Bush and would have preferred Al Gore to win in 2001. I don’t like Bush and hope somebody from the Democratic Party will be able to wrestle the US presidential post from the neo-con. But hope is nothing but hope in this particular case.
Currently, Howard Dean is the leading candidate from the liberal side. He doesn’t merely lead the pack but he is really leading the race for the presidential post. So, by this time the liberals should really be backing the Vermont governor in order to seriously challenge Bush. Unbelievably, instead of seeing the liberals uniting behind a common banner, they are bickering against each other.
The latest attack, which really happened a few weeks ago, was an ad that attacked Howard Dean’s credibility. The weirdest thing is not the ad itself. The weirdest thing is the fact that the ad was sponsored by another Democrat. It was ugly and I would imagine we won’t be seeing the last of the Democrats’ drama.
For this reason, I am willing to bet that Bush will win the next election though it won’t be an easy win. The fact that Bush had terribly handled, or rather mishandled the US economy, foreign policy and the environmental issues will probably counteract against the fighting-within-the-liberal-camp effect and thus giving the liberal some chance.
And if I could vote, I would vote for Dean.
