My election predictions

So who is it going to be in the presidential election? I asked you and now it is my turn to predict...

Romney and Edwards.

Crazy, no? What am I basing this on?

The most important thing, people, obviously. Looks.

From close examination of the past few presidential races, I have realized that the better looking man always wins (Gore and GW Bush were pretty evenly matched, thus Gore just won by a bit).

The looks thing obviously eliminates McCain, Tancredo, Thompson, Giuliani, Pau1 and some of those other dudes on the Republican side.

Clinton is kind of a wild card, being a woman (is that why she is always referred to by her first name, or is that a choice by her campaign? None of the male candidates are called by their first names...) but Edwards obviously creams Obama, Biden, Richardson, etc.

Do I think Americans are that shallow? You betcha, folks. You betcha. If Romney doesn't totally pooch his speech tomorrow, I think he has a good shot. He's got the look.

And a new post is up at Linkateria, including more Republican animal torture news.

That is what everyone says to me when they ask me who I like and I answer that I thought Edwards had some good things to say. "Oh you just like him because he's handsome!" Not true!

You're definitely on to something. I'm constantly hearing people say they like so-and-so because of looks. You're so right about the shallowness. If people were really looking for brains W would never have gotten elected in the first place......

1. Obama is better looking that Edwards.

2. I agree with your prediction, but not due to looks. I think it will be Edwards because he's a white dude, and eventually the white dude always comes out ahead.

Grace - have you LOOKED at Obama? That long neck, those ears? I love him because he is smart but he's not really a looker in my book.

Interesting theory -- I'm sure there is truth in that. I'm thinking Edwards and Huckabee, but that means the theory would only work half the time.

And Grace, I have to disagree -- Edwards is WAY better looking than Obama!

If Bush is so good looking, how come I want to vomit every time I see him?

mar said...

mom101-that's exactly why i want to vomit when i see w. he's got the goodlooking characteristics, but just the thought of him as attractive (even merely physical), makes me gag.

Man, if I have to look at either of their plastic, snap-on hair for four years, I'm moving to Canada.

Edwards is the best and I'm totally biased for excellent reasons. the man would make a very, very good president.

granted, I'm not speaking to the Republican side. I can't. I'm biased, again, rightly, against the whole team.

p.s. what Mom101 said. yikes.

Huckabee and Clinton here, but not because I want that result. :(

meno said...

I think W looks like a cross-eyed monkey.

Sadly, you are probably correct.

Me? I'm rooting for George Clooney, and I SWEAR TO GOD, it's not because he's handsome. I think.

1. Obama's ears are endearing, which is only part of why I'm rooting for him.

2. GW looks like a garden gnome.. take a second, picture it - him at the podium with a pointy red hat and a blue button down top. Garden Gnome.

I hope you're wrong about Romney because his religion speech scared the shit out of me.

I like Edwards, but I don't think he can beat Hillary. And for some reason, I can't really get behind her. I'm still up in the air.
