Should the Bush voters be apologizing?

Only if they regret their decision.

I actually really do wonder what the results would be if you polled Bush voters today.

My dad voted for Bush in 2004 (only the second time in his life he'd voted for a Republican. He voted for Bush 1 in 88) because he thought Kerry would be worse. He has said he really regrets that decision. I tried telling him that 4 years ago, but I was just 16. What did I know?

I would support that

take the lowest vote receiver and count the second vote until one candidate is over 50%

That's a shame that he didn't listen to you because educated young people (high school and college students) can offer a longtime voter a new perspective. Young people are experiencing the good and bad in education. They are dealing for the first time with issues like the economy, social security and health care.

No, I don't. I think they truly thought they were doing the right thing. But I'm sure many of them have had a chance to regret what they did.

Some people are saying they won't vote.

I know some GOP that are angry at McCain for CFR
and will not vote for him. They would never vote for Obama.

In CA we have about 20 propositions. One of them will outlaw gay marriage if it passes.



This is a chance to vote for or against your congressman

all 435 Congressmen are up for election or reelection.

I would rather some one go to the polls and write in a President and vote on the rest.

Than just sit this out.
