The Democratic & Republican conventions might rebel, with social liberals forcing Hillary on Obama if his choice is Hegel, and likewise social conservatives forcing Huckebee on McCain.
If McCain because Pres, instead of fighting a big war with the US, Russia, Iran and Venezuela, they might agree to back down for two years especially with assurances from Huckebee that he will do differently, such as Iran postponing nuclear enrichment for two years, as McCain tries not to become too sick from old age to continue as President.
If the Democrats pick Hillary, then there might be a Democratic landslide, like Nixon over McGovern. Then a lot of screaming between Hillary and Obama at cabinet meetings, but with Obama letting Hillary run the domestic administration policy while he tries to run foreign policy, but with Hillary at times trying to sabotage certain Obama foreign policy agendas.
If McCain chooses Lieberman, there might be a massive open discussion all over the news on just what is (or is not) anti-Semitism which includes a fist-fight in the Israeli Knesset.
One important not noted change this year is (according to a Wall Street Journal poll) Nader this year is a spoiler for McCain, not Obama. Independents who are thinking of voting for McCain also want to vote for Nader. Anyway Nadeites might have a vested interest in Obama doing as well as possible, so they can siphon votes away from Obama, with Nader perhaps going back into the Green Party with McKinney the current Green Party candidate for President, becoming the Vice President Green candidate instead, and perhaps the Green Party taking over the third party status in office holders in the blue states areas of the country, like they have in Washington DC.
It’s a great year, but perhaps after a really great McCain depression, (now that Hispanics are voting for Obama and thus can’t be blame) there might actually be a Cuban styled revolution in this country, with desperately starving Americans in open rebellion against the ruling class. However, some revolutions turn out worse than Cuba, like North Korea. So I prefer dreaming of a Obama landslide, Nixon style, with the Green party taking over the second party status from the Republicans. And besides while we are waiting for the glorious revolution following McCain, and total dollar collapse, all our pets will prefer not to be eaten by their starving masters who are also dreaming of cannibalism, like North Koreans accuse each other of doing.
