Candidates That Are Toast

After New Hampshire, I think you can stick a fork in the following candidates, even if they aren’t going to drop out:

  • John Edwards
  • Ron Paul
  • Bill Richardson

And it pains me to no end to say this:

  • Fred Thompson

    Bill has to stay in to show he’s got some support in Southern/Western states to be VP.

    I have no polls to show if this is feasible. I’m just making a random statement about a guy with a concealed carry permit.

    If they’re toast I might as well not go out and vote. All the other canidates can suck an elf for all I care.

    I don’t think Kucinich swings that way.

    Yep. There’s no chance he’ll win the nomination, but he’ll stay in to be considered for a spot as VP.

    Fred Thompson

    I won’t write off Fred until South Carolina. Yeah, it’s a long shot that he’ll come away with the #1 spot there but I’m actually wearing a Ron Paul hat right now for God’s sake. I’m a sucker for the underdog.

    I blame it on being raised with Rocky movies.

    Excuse me while I die laughing. XD

    I’m with Justin, I won’t write off Thompson untill SC. If he gets shelled then, it would be over.

    Also I don’t want to write him off because if Him or Hunter aren’t on the ballot when the MA primary swings around, I won’t cast a vote.

    The reason I wrote him off is his message should have gotten more traction in New Hampshire than it did. I think he had to do well there to be viable. In South Carolina, he will have to contend with Huckabee, who even in New Hampshire had the evangelical vote all but locked up.

    Huckabee is the man to beat.

    Fred had stated a few days ago on Fox News that he anticipated NH to be a wash. So far every prediction he has made has come to fruition. I am confident that SC is his. The MSM has not reported on it but the campaigning has been extensive. I am nowhere near ready to throw in the towel yet.

  8. Sebastian says:

    It would be nice, but at this point I’m more concerned about Huckabee running away with it than I am about Fred. I am now officially in the “Not Huckabee (or Romney)” camp. If Fred pulls out a win in SC, I’ll renounce McCain, but I think at this point, it’s not looking likely. Huckabee is the man to beat in South Carolina, and I think the most Fred can hope for is a second place finish.

    Evangelicals have united solidly behind Huckabee, even in New Hampshire! We’re all split. We have to united behind a candidate soon or it’s going to be Mr. Jesus Preacher come the convention.

    Do you know what an evangelical is? Have you seen one anywhere in this election season?
