Despite the voting preferences of Kentucky and Todd County, it would be a minor miracle if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee for the presidential race this fall.

Barak Obama has said he will come to Kentucky and work hard to convince us that he is the best choice. Todd County had 373 voters who liked Obama. Only three out of 10 Kentucky's Democrats like him as well.

We can't count the times we've heard people say that they don't like any of the choices. We wonder if that is because people only go by what they hear from the media or why else would state Democrats overwhelmingly vote for Clinton, whose husband has a tremendous amount of detractors here? Bill only had about 300 people to show up to hear him in Hopkinsville last week.

This political season will pay out more for voters if they make a point to become as knowledgeable as possible before heading to the polls in November.

Because, despite Obama's promise, something tells us that after the thumping of the past few weeks Obama won't see much use in working too hard in Kentucky and West Virginia.

Most likely, neither will McCain.

He's the safe choice for those who won't, or are too lazy, to judge for themselves if a black man or a woman should be president.

So, when McCain wins Kentucky (and Todd County) by 40 or 50 percent it shouldn't come as a surprise.

What would be a (welcome) surprise is if McCain or Obama win in Kentucky because they are indeed the best candidate for the job not just the best choice for the uninformed.

The fact that Obama is black is of no significance to me. The deal he had with the pastor of his church saying "God damn America," on the other hand...

I would love to see a black president if he was a man like the one in the first season of 24, Davd Palmer. That guy that does the All State commercials. I do not trust Obama.

The question is and should be who do you trust more and who do you trust less ? Democratic Candicate Barack Obama or Republican Candicate John McCain ? Who would be the best candicate of change and who would give us more of the same that we have seen over the last 8 to 12 years under the former republican congress and republican usa presidency of Bush-Cheney since jan-2001.

If McCain, McSame, McBush wins Kentucky by 50%... that for me would be quite a surprise.
