Well, I was wrong about Fred Thompson.Â I said he’d stick around for a little longer and then drop out from the race.Â Instead, he made me look bad by dropping out before Florida!
Ah, well, can’t win them all.Â I can still claim a win on predicting his inevitable departure, though.Â I thought it was due to happen any time now.Â I think he knew that he’d do no better, if not worse, in Florida.Â Then after that he’d have to face Super Tuesday.Â If I had to guess a time he would have dropped out, if would have been then.Â Seeing as I don’t think he’d have done well that day, that would have been the end.Â But, it’s over now, and I think it’d for the best.
Giuliani’s next, I think, if he doesn’t do good in Florida.Â As I said in my last entry, he’s another candidate staking his race on one state, which I think is a mistake.Â If he does do well, though, I think he should definitely go on to see how Super Tuesday goes.Â I don’t think Giuliani needs a win in Florida, but he needs at least second place to be anywhere near viable on February 5th.
Finally, I’ve been mum on two competing candidates, Dennis KuchinichÂ and Ron Paul.Â Apart from the fact that neither have a chance, both seem pretty stubborn.Â I expect they’ll stick it out until at least Super Tuesday, and maybe until the end.
Saturday can’t come quick enough…
