It's over in CA for this go-round anyway. There were funding issues, so it was abandoned.

That's what I was thinking too. It will be down, IMO to this: do most Americans prefer a woman or a black president ?
Factor in the experience and I think Clinton has a better chance out of the two. (and I think there will come some mudslinging and closet skeletons for Obama if he keeps his popularity up - see McCain in 2000 and Kerry in 2004)

If I was a Yank, I'd vote either Kucinich or Obama, the thought of a President who just so happens to be the missus of anoter recent preisdent is quite silly. Might as well just be a fucking monarchy, a royal family.

I do like Kucinich, seems like a decent fella with good values. Might go Obama if Kucie looks as if he's got no hope and things are too tight between Clinton and Obama.

a leader leads

Quote:
Shortly after 7 p.m., the campaign released a “Statement of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” saying, in part:

“Over this past week, there has been a lot of discussion and back and forth — much of which I know does not reflect what is in our hearts. And at this moment, I believe we must seek common ground.

“Our party and our nation is bigger than this. Our party has been on the front line of every civil rights movement, women's rights movement, workers' rights movement, and other movements for justice in America...

“And in that spirit, let's come together, because I want more than anything else to ensure that our family stays together on the front lines of the struggle to expand rights for all Americans.”

A leader also sends out surrogates to do their dirty work, plants seeds in peoples minds, then steps back and appears above the fray.


Am I that cynical? yes.

lol what?? What do you mean by "enough said"? Osama generates more interest than Obama? I hope so. Osama has been in our radar since 2001, even prior to that. Not to mention that he attacked the country.

If the Democrats were running a platform of all white men with WASP names, (like Edwards?) they'd be that much harder to attack. This should have been an absolute no-brainer.
I know you probably think you are part of the solution, but you're not. Last names have nothing to do with anything. I think most of the voting population are smarter than that.

Quote:
Hillary came to town in May. I took the day off and getting there early, I stayed down among the crowd at the Governor's Mansion, intending to give my letter to an aide of Governor Spitzer. But at the last moment I chickened out--the last thing I needed was to be arrested for a "terrorist" incident. (Anthrax anyone?) You can see what the climate has done to me. I despise myself for it.
You are really blowing things well out of proportion. Unless you were intending on heckling Hillary and then threw the letter at the aide there would be no probable cause to arrest you for terrorism, of all things. Maybe inciting a riot or disturbing the peace. Not terrorism...unless you had Anthrax in it?
You, and many others, are building the Patriot Act up to be some sort of 1939 German ordinance. It's bad, but it's not that bad. It just leaves a big window open for anyone who wants to make this country even more government controlled.

But at least I would have felt better, knowing that someone out there has spotted the danger signs.

Now there are no solutions, and we are officially screwed.

I dunno, when I saw the word Kucinich (never heard it pronounced), I immediately though Kucie, as in Quechie. I dunno why, I just did.

Just shameless laziness and a habit of nicknaming the crap out of everything. I think "Kucie" too, all that said.

Could be a pattern brewing.....Clinton cleaned up Bush Sr's messes, perhaps another Clinton will soon be in Office cleaning up Lil Bush's messes.
