Hill and Paul

Obama isn't doing very much to make the nation believe he's a serious candidate. He's now trailing by 33 points.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has jumped to an astounding 33-point lead over Barack Obama, topping her main rival among every major slice of the electorate and widening a dominating advantage she has held all summer.

As always, this is only astounding if you supposed the magic negro had any chance to begin with. He didn't. Hillary had been anointed long ago to be the next queen of the republic.

Meanwhile, Ron Paul raised 5 million dollars last quarter, five times that of Mike Huckabee. Both the mainstream media and those who stump for the neo-cons are going to continue to ignore him, but he's not going to go away. I'm not saying Paul is going to be the nominee, but he's already lasted longer than anyone would have hoped, and whereas Obama is going straight backwards, Paul is gradually picking up steam.

The only way I'm going to lose that bet I didn't make--because gambling is illegal--about Hillary becoming the next president of the U.S. is if the Republicans get smart and nominate Paul. They probably won't, but that's one non-bet I wouldn't mind losing.
