as some would say............

voting against their best interests.........


Palin is sort of stupid, it seems

she can come off as at ffierst as "together" because she has her training in beauty contest poise, and SPorts journalism......

so she's starts off as telegenic.....

So, if for example you were a Democrat back in 2000 and you said: "Easy! We'll beat him, no sweat. Bush is the stupidest person in the universe ever!" and then, having lost in 2000, you came back in 2004 and you STILL said "Easy! We'll beat him, no sweat. Bush is the stupidest person in the universe ever!" - and , in spite of all that, you STILL think Bush is the stupidest person in the universe ever, well, what does that make you - and I don't mean this personally, of course, I am making the general point.

Three elections, and assuming Obama wins this, the Democrats will have one out of the last three.

One out of three is a fail, unfortunately.

Three of the last Five isn't

You're right, it IS easy......

I was in the same situation with my Dad, God rest his soul.
Stupid? No way.
Set in his ways and unchangeable? Yep.

He didn't live to see the end of W's 2nd term; I like to tell myself that even he would've disapproved.

There's never one set reason why people vote for a certain candidate.

Some people will vote out of their best interests.

Some people will be stubborn over something and vote against their interests.

Some people will desire to have their "values" represented and vote accordingly.

Some people will vote to make a statement.

That goes for all candidates' voters.

I just can't believe people are still undecided. It's not like the two candidates are indistinguishable.

That's a misleading headline. Reading the article the only mention of guarantee is here:

Quote:
"I guarantee you that two weeks from now, you will see this has been a very close race, and I believe that I'm going to win it,” McCain told interim "Meet" moderator Tom Brokaw. “We're going to do well in this campaign, my friend. We're going to win it, and it's going to be tight, and we're going to be up late.”
He thinks he's going to win (I mean, would a presidential candidate ever publicly say otherwise?) and guarantees that it's going to be a close race.

I'm still trying to figure out who these elusive undecided voters are. I don't know one voting person who doesn't already know who they're voting for.

Some people think neither candidate best represents them or will lead the country in a positive direction.
I can understand that. 2009 is going to be an economically tumultuous year no matter who gets elected and a lot of people are disheartened about politicians and the things that they promise and will not deliver. It's safe to say that neither candidate is going to live up to many of the things they are talking about right now.
