I think that's completely ridiculous. People will put away their "anger" (an exxagerated statement anyway) to make sure the GOP doesn't keep control.

And McCain can't do without the conservative base, are you serious?

They will rally around him eventually? I'm not so sure.

Democratic women won't be "angry" if Obama wins-sorry, no way. The only thing that will make them angry is another Republican President, thus they will not even think of staying home. Watch out for us- we will decide this election, like it or not.

I don't buy that theory whatsoever... These aren't major idealogical reasonings, regular voters don't stay home because they really wanted a woman. That's pretty weak, whoever mentioned that...

That's the whole thing, I'm not sure your party can do it without the Limbaughs and Dobsons, ya'll depend on the wacko vote a lot.

But women don't think, they're just ruled by emotions.

I think it was Chris Matthews.

Yes, but McCain will compensate for them by getting some independents and Dems, (overwhelmingly if Hillary gets the nomination), something Romney nor any other Republican could do.

McCain's our best shot, that's for sure. I'd rather have McCain be our nominee and for Limbaugh to hate him than for Romney to be our nominee and all the far-right people praise him.

Unless our men tell us what to do.

I agree with you BVS, Martha, and Mrs. Springsteen. I am 100% behind Obama and I think that no one is better suited to lead our country right now. That being said, if Hillary gets the nomination I will gladly vote for her because I think she'd do a great job leading the nation in the right direction. I certainly wouldn't decide not to vote. One would have to be an incredibly irresponible and uninformed voter to do that. I would hope that we as Democrats are smarter than to vote for someone because of their ethnicity or gender.

Not if he starts pandering to the right.

Which...uhh...he's been doing for ages now.

Or a pissed-off right-wing whacko.

Chris Matthews? Well that's not exactly a great source for thoughts about women. Read what I posted in the hot stove thread about what he said about having a woman as commander in chief.

Oh please.

I'm a woman and I really want a woman to win. But I like Obama and that is the difference. The Democrats LIKE both candidates. The polls show that more than 70% of Democrats would be happy EITHER way.

And do you honestly believe that after 8 horrific years under Bush, anyone but the staunchest Republican is eager to repeat that clusterfuck?

Oh that's true. Was it Glenn Beck that said *le gasp* he'd vote for the Democrat if McCain gets the nomination? Well you know what they say, "Once you go left...."

McCain has been doing well with independents, but so has Obama. And I really don't think McCain can grab that many Dems...

And Chris Matthews has a record for sticking his foot in his mouth...

Especially if he nominates Huckabee as VP. Imagine the overwhelming excitement for moderate independents and dems - to vote for a creationist who wants to amend the Constitution to streamline it with the Bible. There's a fantastic selling point!!
