Money is one thing. You can only buy so many TV ads.
I'd guess even Edwards currently has enough money to make it past Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and he only raised 9 mill, I think.


June polls:
CBS:
Clinton-48, Obama-24, Edwards-11
Fox:
Clinton-47, Obama-21, Edwards-13
CNN:
Clinton-43, Obama-25, Edwards-17
Newsweek:
Clinton-43 Obama-27, Edwards-14

I have a hard time being excited about supporting NYONE anymore. I just don't care as much anyore cause it all seems like BS.

Did I make a wrong turn on the interference highway this morning?

What good does it do to vote, when it's not doing you any good? You are only allowing their game to continue.

try voting for a third party candidate?
If enough people did this, maybe it would help. But they think it's a 'wasted' vote. A vote for any dem or rep is the real wasted vote.

And on the subject of having a plan, they don't, and even if they did, it would only be a lie they'd never live up to. It's all just acting to get you to put them in office. They don't care.

What good does it do to not vote? Even if only 5% (and as low as the percentage is it is never going to be that low) of the eligible voting population voted, one of the candidates would still win. Vote in the primaries for more honest candidates. Look into Ron Paul or Mike Gravel, they're very straight-up kinda guys, not the typcial politician phonies.

um maybe you should read/hear them speak before you say that

the link unico provided for Kucinich has a very specific plan about Iraq. I know Edwards was the first Democratic candidate to come out with a full-fledged healthcare plan with details as opposed to just blanket statements of "i liek helthkar", and I believe Mitt Romney wants to use the Massachusettes model? Plenty of candidates HAVE given specifics. And lying, well, you can't know for sure. A lot of it depends on Congress approving their budget.
