Spontaneous Gym Politics … Early Presidential Analysis

OK … every once in awhile a political discussion breaks out around the
bench press or the military press machine at the gym. Here’s the summary of our
small little discussion group with pumped up muscles for Saturday, February 16. People either love or hate Hilary Clinton … so the group says that ‘hate wins’ and Obama comes out on top on the Democratic ticket. A few on our discussion board did not know about any cocaine confession or allegations regarding Obama (Google: keywords ‘cocaine’ and ‘Obama’).  And the awesome Republican ticket? That would
be McCain and Rice. That’s right. Condaleeza Rice as Vice President and
John McCain for President. We all admit she is a smart lady … after all she was right on her prediction for Super Bowl XLI.

Next a little flashback; John Kerry was a loser with his out-of-touch
dark-ale-meet-the-public attitude. Of course, he has announced he is not running. Oh, but what about his former little running mate? Well, John Edwards is slime according to our gym caucus (remember this is gym talk … not my expression … I am just repeating what I heard). And Howard Dean … who? Haven’t heard much from him lately.

Last, but not least, the consensus is that it it’s a big shame that the
University of Illinois capitulated to the NCAA and is about to drop
Chief Illiniwek. Most really don’t understand how Indians are offended
by such a cool dance and tradition of the Three-and-One. We all agree
… we will miss Chief Illiniwek!
