I will never vote for anyone who has supported this current administration so I can't support any Republication untill this current crop get's the hell out of Washington.
That includes McCain. I respected him alot untill he, as U2DMfan pointed out, cowed down for politcal gain.

Clinton.

Well, I think in 2008 it'll end up being something like Joe Biden or Bill Richardson against George Allen or Mike Huckabee. Still, if I had a vote, I'd vote Democrat no matter who they ran.

If you don't mind me asking - why these two candidates? I mean, when I think about the nomination process it's not as if I really believe either of them would end up the winners anyway.
As of August 2005, provided McCain and Clinton both run, they will have their parties respective nominations. No other contenders have the public stature and popularity of the two, especially in their own parties. McCain's popularity climbs every year. Jeb Bush is not running in 2008, and the conservative wing of the party will not be able to stop McCain with a Frist as their man. It is true that the hardest part of McCain's run will be the Republican nomination, but once he secures that, the democrats don't have anyone that could hold a candle to him in a race and the polls and thoughts by political experts support that conclusion. The liberal Chris Matthews has concluded that if McCain wants to run for President, he will be elected in a landslide.

Now, is "cowed down" an actual figure of speech, or is it just a bastardized version of the Chinese reference of "kowtow"?

(I don't mean to be provocative, I'm genuinely curious.)

Thank goodness. I couldn't deal with ANOTHER Bush. Two is enough.

McCain 15 votes

Clinton 8 votes



Interesting results so far considering how far to the left this forum typically is. If McCain can do this well here, he'll win the election in a landslide.

This forum is 'far to the left'........ok I see we're back to this theory that FYM is a haven of far leftists out of the touch with the mainstream.

There is precisely ONE regular poster here that I would call a 'far leftist', purely on the basis that he has advocated communism.

Only compared to Fox News is this forum 'far to the left'.

I think "leans to the left" would be a more accurate statement.

I think it's fair to say this forum is more liberal than conservative...

The early returns tend to support my statement.

I'd vote Clinton even though I hate how she's changing her public persona. I still like her policies.

There have been multiple polls done in here on who would vote for Bush or Kerry in the election. Bush was defeated by an average of 3 to 1 in most of the polls.

Not even in the most liberal state in the United States was Bush defeated by a margin that large against Kerry.

So the members of FYM have consistently voted in a way that is more liberal than the most liberal states in the United States. So that easily would place this forum as being far to the left, and most people here have agreed with that it is when the question has come up before.

Are you serious? You really think that voting for Kerry over Bush makes one "far to the left"?!

The most liberal State in the Union, Massachusetts, voted this way in the 2004 Election

Kerry 61.94% of the vote

Bush 36.78% of the vote

But there is a place where Bush is even more unpopular than Massachusetts, and its called FYM.

So the fact that McCain, a conservative, is crushing Clinton in a place like FYM I think is significant.
