Having said that I'm sure there are lots of great people (Black and White) in the south - but you have to admit it has it's history. The "north" wasn't innocent either I realise this but ...oh fuck it why am I trying to explain myself. Whatever.

I used to think the same way.

But there's a feeling I have about Obama. I'm not sure if he'll be able to top HRC, but he will finish head and shoulders above Edwards.

you liberal types got my hopes up in the last US election. i can't help but feel it's the same all over again. mind you, it's hard to pay much close attention from this distance away. still, i dont care if the people elect a taxidermist's pet pig; it has to be better than the "missing link" the republicans have cast and bronzed for the last too many years.

It's cool man, you can stereotype the American South, just about any subdivison of American Christians, the American White populace or (mostly) just Americans in general around here.

Par for the course.

You know, we Germans are still all Nazis, because nothing changes. Never.
At least not for some people, looking at Harry Vests' attitude.

I have a question. (Btw am not American so please bear with my ignorance)

How is it going to work for the primaries with both parties choosing a candidate at the same time? I only remember the ones for the last Democratic nomination, when the Republicans already had their candidtate - Bush. Will the voting take place at the same time? Like, will there be this huge Super Tuesday with both Democrats and Republicans voting for their respective candidates at the same time?

Primaries and caucuses take place at different times. Not every state votes on Super Tuesday, but enough of them do. You got it.

I think Rudi will be up against Hillary in the election. I believe that the Republicans will be looking for a more moderate candidate to lure back voters that went demotcatic for the Senatorial elections. Hillary and the Clinton political machine will tear apart an inexperienced and vulnerable candidate such as Obama

I think it's too early to predict the nominees.

A Democrat needn't carry the South to win the popular vote--Bill Clinton and Al Gore already proved that. Of course Southern Republicans will vote Republican; that's a no-brainer. At this point I don't personally find it likely that any of the Democratic candidates would perform all that well in the South, but then again that's what they said about Carter before he swept it.

ETA: Although...in what right now seems the unlikely event that it came down to Giuliani vs. Edwards, then in that case I could possibly see Edwards cleaning up big in the South based on "native son" appeal, despite being a Democrat. Romney vs. Edwards, maybe the same story, maybe not. However, in order for either of those to happen Edwards would have to win the nomination first, and he's got a long way to go there. And, again, what happens in the South doesn't automatically decide the election; that depends on what happens elsewhere.

These examples are really outside the thread topic though.

I have a feeling too...but I'm scared something will happen to him if there's a serious chance he might be elected President. You'd like to think the country was beyond that, but I'm concerned...

I feel exactly the same way - like a encore of RFK in 1968. Let's hope not but there's alot of crazy SOB's running around these days - not to mention an inside job by the Republicans. OH NO he's talking conspiracy.
