Tom Delay Explains the Election

Tom Delay's latest article is on the upcoming elections, and how they will affect the House and Senate Races. Fair enough, since he serves in the House of Representatives. Basically his theory boils down to Hillary Clinton is going to be the nominee because that's just how dirty she plays and/or that's just how corrupt the Democratic party is. Also she's a woman which gives her historical novelty.

On the other hand Republicans can't run on Bush's record and they aren't well loved by the base. Delay really hammers Giulliani, noting "Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, if he could get nominated, would certainly garner a lot of support from Democrats, but it's just as likely he would lose at least one conservative for every liberal he gained." That's pretty harsh.

Anyway he thinks that, in this election, neither candidate is likely to have coattails that Congress Critters can ride. Actually I'd say that's probably accurate. On the other hand, I'm not sure that that doesn't favor Democrats. Certainly the last election had no coattails and Democrats did pretty good in that one, if memory serves.
