I am hoping that he does (unless something dramatic happens at the Repo convention)
I doubt he will. He is in far more serious trouble than anyone admits. Not just the polls. Look at the money. He is spending more than he is taking in. His big bundlers are saying that they are sitting this one out. Even the foreign credit card donations are not coming through like before. The NC Demmies are in a shambles, there does not seem to be enough to pay for the convention so that looks like it may be a fiasco.
And finally many Demmy pols are saying "Obama? Who? Yeah the name sounds familiar but I don't think I actually know him." Can you imagine what it takes to keep a state governor away from a national convention? Yet two have announced that they have to wash their hair that week or something. That has to hurt.
And he is even losing the media.
I even offered to bet $5 that he would not even be a candidate in November. That he will withdraw.
Nobody here had enough confidence to take my money.
My thinking is that he is all about the O. If he sees himself in a hopeless position, rather than lose, he will withdraw.
He'll have some good excuse. Perhaps he is ill. Perhaps he wants to spend some more time with his family. Perhaps the rumors are true, he is gay (NTTATWWT) and decides that he wants to come out of the closet.
My bet offer still stands, just in case anyone wants to take me up on it.
