Pro

Now that the democratic nomination is between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, I believe that Obama would be the the best nominee in beating any of the republican candidates.
bigbass3000

Con

President Bush is predicting that Hillary Clinton will win the 2008 Democratic presidential primary,
First off, the said the best to beat the Republican nominee, so I will pick the candidate Mike Huckabee, since the Aff did not give one.Democrats still give Clinton a 46-to-35 percent edge over Obama on electability, but two months ago her margin on the same question was better than 4-to-1. Hillary has shown in her wins in New Hampshire, Nevada, and of course Florida, that Dems can have her to beat the Republican candidate. Why, reason one according to a recent poll on CNN, more people would vote for a Woman, then a African American. Two, another poll shows Hillary being a little more moderate of a liberal. Obama is the extreme liberal, now, you may say hey you endorse Barack, I do, but not because it can win, but because what he stands for is what I stand for. Hillary also has the Clinton Machine, this campaign program, she has with her can pick apart every opponent with accuracy and effiency. Obama team is less then scary, because he is trying to run a positive campaign, but the Clinton Machine is too strong. Hillary's approval rating is higher than Barack, and he may have one primaries, but he does not have enough experience. Hillary is the choice to beat the Republican, also because voters, know Bill and Bill is a Rock star to Democrats and independents. People loved him, and because of this love for him, will give Hillary the Win. If Barack went in he would not get the majority of the crowd, because of his experience and his own self. And I haven't even started with a head to head matchup with Huck.

Con

My opponent is gone, so I win I guess. I win simply because Hillary clinton is the choice for the democratic win over every republican, so is Barack, but the clintons are more known.

if the reasoning that you think hillary will win has anything to do with the fact that GEORGE W BUSH (stupidest man alive ....okay, that's exaggerating) thinks so, then you lose in my book. he lied about WMD, why not lie about who he thinks will win? you can't take anything he says seriously.

obama is way too liberal for any conservative or even a moderate democrat, so making the claim that he would beat any republican is farfetched.

Obama would win in a landslide over ANY republican candidate with the exception of Paul for some odd reason getting the nomination. Hillary would make democrats too polarized to vote for her and would push people away. I am only voting for the Con in this debate because the Pro failed to argue his point of view...he should have had an easy win

i believe obama is more economically conservative than hillary, which is a bigger issue for the populace.

i meant consolidate the republicans against, not behind.

it's not necessarily that he would beat the republicans, it's that he wouldn't consolidate the entire republican party behind him like hillary would. Obama has a wide appeal to republicans, Hilary doesn't.
