In the end, I believe that a Democrat will carry Massachusetts in 2008. However, by how much? And, how much will McCain force Democrats to defend states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Let's not forget that Gore and Kerry barely won Minnesota and Wisconsin, a couple of high tax states that are trending Republican. Michigan's Gov. Granholm is in deep trouble because her state cannot attract business or create jobs.
This is why I continue to propose a McCain-Romney ticket.
McCain brings credibility on national security, the Republicans' strength. He also connects with independents.
Romney brings the cultural values because of his opposition to abortion and same sex marriage. He is also a very well spoken man who looks very presidential.
McCain-Romney would be a winning ticket in 2008. They will carry every one of the 30 states carried by Bush plus Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey and compete in Massachusetts.
I don't see a single Democrat that can stand up to McCain-Romney!
