LeMieux calls it: Obama

Republican loyalist George LeMieux, former campaign manager and chief of staff to Gov. Charlie Crist, predicts on The LeMieux Report that Democrat Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States.

"McCain should carry Florida in a nail bitter, but Obama will carry the nation winning: Colorado, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Wisconsin,'' LeMieux writes.  "Missouri, Virginia, and Ohio are too close to call.  Even if McCain wins all three, he will fall short."

Wonder if LeMieux's crystal ball would look different if his old boss was on the ticket.

LeMieux also anticipates Republican Reps. Tom Feeney and Mario Diaz-Balart will go down, but that Republican Tom Rooney will defeat Democratic Rep. Tim Mahoney.
