Rudy loves the gays, too. footage of him attending Gay Pride parades in Manhattan would kill him dead in the primaries.

But would Democrats or Replublicans really used that to their advantage. It would be really stupid of them to. Fuck Politics. There only moral, when greenbacks are talking.

The GOP threw Gulianni under the train tracks in 2000.

And he would still be there
if 911 did not happen


He will not be on the ticket in 2008

I like the idea of a Feingold/Edwards ticket.

You might be able to only win Washington DC and Massachussetts with that combo.

If those are my four choices in 2008, I'm gonna write-in Gary Coleman.

a very casual look....

my ideal ballot would be something pretty out of the box.
A third party candidate with either liberal, moderate, conservative values, doesn't matter, just don't be a fucking incompetent hardhead who doesn't listen to dissent. But among top objectives, get lobbyists out of congress.

That said, anyone with sane policy will suffice.
If that's McCain or Biden or Kerry or whoever.
Just some competent, 'this side of batshit crazy' foreign and domestic policy.

I'd see Gore as a continuation of 'what the fuck?' moments. So a big 'no' to him.

It could be what with all of the problems Bush is having now, gay marriage or abortion might not be the issue in 2008 that it was in 2004. People will be more concerned about the mess in Iraq and the national debt if these two issues are still issues in 2008.

Started thinking about 2008 again. I'd love it if Russ Feingold ran for president. He might be seen as a non-contender right now, but you should read how he won his original Senate race in 1992:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russ_Feingold

I also love the fact that he has consistently stuck to his principles.

I don't know. I don't think I want any Democrat or even any Republican who is considering running. I would vote 3rd party if they had a chance to win.

My mother says that John McCain is the only politician she has ever felt she can trust. This is coming from an Independent like myself.

I think a lot of people will say this, but only because he has cultivated a very strong image. His substance is still conservative, despite his token resistance that usually ends with him voting the party line.

But Americans are long known to vote primarily on image and not on substance. McCain certainly has the advantage on that front.

Wasn't 1976 the last time there wasn't a Clinton or Bush on a ticket? Therefore you have to believe either Hillary or Jeb will be on the ballot come Nov 08.
