Obama vs. Clinton, who gets the nomination?
I've avoided speculation about what is going to happen a year or more out, and have avoided framing the Dem race as being Obama vs. Clinton, mostly because I don't even like to think of such a contest, being that each has so much to offer and are such strong candidates. Secondly, I really find the gossipy, let's create a fight, type mentality displayed by the media where they salivate over a bruising match between the two and try to create a story line where Hilary Clinton is seething over and/or scared of Obama to be silly and serves to trivialize the process.
But I haven't thrown any meat to the armchair political strategists for a while, so here we go.
If Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton are both front runners a year from now, who do you think will get the Democratic nomination?
This of course depends on many factors, such as fund raising ability, (both extremely strong) and how they'd play in the key primary states.
Or as a wildcard, do you seriously think that if these two run, any other candidates stand a chance of picking one of them off?
So roll it around in your head a little while and then give us your pick as to who you feel would prevail in a primary contest between Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton and don't forget to include your reasoning.
