South Carolina Preview

Posted by Ryan on January 19, 2008

One thing I love about living through history is that occasionally we get surprises.  Every four years in South Carolina, we predictably get “dirty” tactics, push-polls, hysteria over the Confederate Flag, etc.  I am certainly hoping for a new surprise to come out of South Carolina:

–I hope that if the winner is John McCain (who many polls indicate could very well win) that he does not set the tone for how the rest of the South votes, which tends to be the case in Republican primaries.

–I hope that if Huckleberry wins, the same pattern does not occur.

–I hope that Fred Thompson does repectable enough to stay in the race at least until Super Tuesday and maybe get some mo- out of SC.

Also, the Nevada Caucuses are today.  I can’t really say I care much about Nevada, though Romney seems likely to win.  However, on the Dem side O’Bama needs to pull out a victory over She Who Must Not Be Named just to keep things interesting in that race– the more they continue to trash each other the better it is for the Republicans.
