My ideal presidential matchup.

Just read that Mitt Romney is dropping out of the GOP race today, leaving John McCain as the clear candidate. Mike Huckabee is still in it, but let's face it, the nomination will go to McCain.

And I'm happy because McCain is one-half of the ideal Dem-GOP race that I'd like to see this fall.

On the other side, I'm pulling for Barack Obama as the Democractic nominee. I believe an Obama-McCain campaign holds the greatest potential for legitimate debate over issues and policy and direction and philosophy. Yes, there would be some mud tossed about -- this IS politics, after all. But if Hillary Clinton wins the Dem nod, then things will just spiral downhill and out of control.

So, we're halfway to my ideal presidential matchup for 2008.
