Yeah. I'm bummed.

Well, Mitt Romney lost in Florida last night, as you must know by now. I suspected McCain was going to win going into it, but it was still disappointing. It will be much more difficult for Romney to get the nomination now. What's even worse is that the front-runner is the mean and vindictive McCain, who is unlikely to choose Romney as a running mate, even though Romney is far better than any of the other candidates. It's so frustrating because I know Romney would be a good president and that he'd do great things for the country if he were to lead it. I wish more Americans would do their research so that they could know this as well. Maybe they will and some sort of a miracle will happen, but I'm not counting on that.

So we'll see how things go from here. John Edwards quit today, and Rudy Giuliani will be doing the same, and of course he'll give his endorsement to his friend McCain instead of to Romney. It's going to be really interesting to see who comes out on top on Super Tuesday, Clinton or Obama. For the Republicans, it looks like McCain will emerge as the victor with Romney in second. I have to say that I really can't stand John McCain. At this point, I would vote for Clinton over McCain, which some of you will think is crazy, but I really just distrust and dislike the guy more than I feel that way toward Clinton. And even though I'm not crazy about Obama, he's a lot better than McCain and I'd definitely vote for him over McCain.

As is stands now the only thing that would make me vote for McCain is: 1) if he were to choose Romney as his running mate, or 2) if he changes his lying ways and strange personality problems, which is unlikely. If Obama and McCain win their party's nominations, I bet McCain will choose Huckabee as his running mate so that they'll have a chance of winning in the South. I'm convinced that McCain and Huckabee have been working together secretly for awhile, and also that they'd both have total power trips if they ever lead this country. If Hillary gets the nomination, McCain might be more likely to choose Romney, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to receiving all the new clothes I bought on the Internet last night in the midst of my disappointment as the returns were coming in and the victor was projected. Aaaah, retail therapy, there's nothing like it! (Only you'll notice that I'm still bummed out today, so I guess it didn't really work. Oh well. At least I'm getting some new clothes!)
