With Giuliani and Edwards out of the race for their party’s Presidential nomination, the politics is beginning to become clear. McCain must be set to finally go all the way for the Republicans. As for the Democrats, well, there may be a problem.
I’ve always thought Edwards would stand no chance, with Clinton and Obama in a two horse race. This seems to have come true. But who will benefit most from Edwards? I suppose it depends who’s offered him the most.
But I’ll put my money on Clinton. Yet too close a race could give the impression the Democrats are indecisive, which could be a bad thing in terms of gaining a Democrat President next time.
I previously said the Republicans were in a mess, and stood little chance. But if McCain rises as a single favourite, he could produce a surprise unity. If this happens, the Republicans may not be finished yet.
