Sure, we'll continue to point out that weakness of the Dems. Look at the "Election 2006" thread. I've already posted an article in which the Iraqi Al Qaeda leader rejoices over the fact that the Dems are in power; Al Qaeda definitely think the Dems will go softer on them.

I am excited because it sets the stage for two people I would not mind being president getting in. Obama or McCain. Are we looking at the first African American President, or are we looking at the new Ronald Regan ala 1980 rescuing the party.

All good in my book.

Most definitely.

In fact, I also predict much worse. Note how the Republicans repeatedly went after Clinton again and again on items that the country really didn't care about. When Clinton was being impeached, the U.S. public supported him at an 80% approval rating!! So were the Republican *really* acting on behalf of their constituents? Hardly - they were acting in their own self-interest.

I find that there's probably enough evidence to impeach Bush, but the Democrats have wisely stated that this will not happen. What Bush did was far, far worse than lying about an affair.

However, now that the power has shifted in Congress, I fear 2 things:

1) The Republicans will attack like they haven't attacked in a decade;
2) The Democrats will not be united and screw things up again.

Item #2 happened after the '92 elections. The Democrats had Congress and the White House. Yet, instead of pushing through agendas and making a united front, they bickered amongst themselves, failed to support Clinton and were promptly booted out of office in '94. I hope they learned a lesson from that. Otherwise, come '08, we are back to a Republican regime. And I will say this - at least they stay united (for the most part - Arnold turning his back on Bush being the big exception).

Are those two votes for option 3 a joke? Or do two people here actually believe that?

I'm curious, what flavor koolaid did you get?

Simply because the Democrats aren't as zealous to send our military out on poorly planned missions without the proper equipment and a solid exit strategy, doesn't mean that they are weak or would go soft on terrorists.

(1)Many Dems (not all) want to give terrorist suspects trials in the American court system rather than military trials.

(2)Dems do not want terrorists to be subjected to "waterboarding" even though Investigative Reporter Bob Ross discovered that it's actually bery effective in obtaining vital information.

Sounds pretty soft to me.

What wonderful options you have to choose from in your poll. The only thing interesting is that the results so far continue to show the huge imbalance in political or party affiliation in this forum.

I would be but I'm too busy being and that this sentiment is serious and actually exists.
