Now I have a question for any Democrat in here, mainly anyone supporting Hillary: Out of all the Democratic politicians in the country (or at least those willing to run for president), how/why is Hillary Clinton the best fit? I will never know why people see her as a good, experienced, qualified candidate. What makes the Democratic party completely satisfied with an ex-first lady, 6-year Senator being their nominee? Is that really the best they can do?

It just confuses me when people here call McCain or Romney or Thompson unfit for the job when their preferred alternative is Hillary Clinton. And I'm not talking about issues or specific beliefs. I'm solely talking about experience and qualification to be commander-in-chief.

It makes no sense. What has she done?
Thompson? You really have to ask that. What the hell has Thompson done?

Romney?

Just like there are a lot that support Obama because he's black? Or like a lot will support Romeny because he's mormon? Like there are a lot that support Huck because he's a minister?

Yes, all of those reasons for voting for someone are unacceptable, to me.

Well I'm sure there are those that support those people for those reasons. You can't really stop them. Just like I think people voting for a president based on their religion, which many of you do, is completely unacceptable.

But I really don't think there are "ton" that support her just because she's a woman or a Clinton.

What makes you think Republicans are unelectable? I havent seen any evidence of this. May I inform you of Clinton's declining poll numbers and a new poll out showing her at 49% and Rudy at 48.
I was talking about as an opinion, as I assumed Diamond has been inferring.

From what you are saying ... I tend to agree. It's the unfortunate truth. None of these GOP candidates even come close to being electable in my book, similar to the Dems of '04. Each one of them has a scary aspect to them, except for McCain and Paul. And neither of them have really any shot, from what it seems.

Yes, but he just wants to call me a "hypersensitive" woman. It's the way, you know?

Hillary has "kooties" now? I didn't know that, when was she diagnosed? Is that the same as cooties?

This week the CBS EVENING NEWS continues its series 'Primary Questions' where Katie Couric sits down with the presidential candidates and asks what makes them tick... everything from losing their tempers to the biggest mistake they've ever made. Wednesday night they tackle the issue of infidelity!


KATIE COURIC:

Harry Truman once said, "A man not honorable in his marital relations is not usually honorable in any other." Some voters say they don't feel comfortable supporting someone who's not remained faithful to his or her spouse. Can you understand or appreciate their point of view?
candidates answer the question here

there are some good answers and bad answers

If I were grading, one would get an A

and one would get an F

and the rest - somewhere in between.

Well, for one, Katie Couric can't interview.

But, I'll have to take a look. Although, Rudy Giuliani's response is about 85 on the Unintentional Comedy Scale.
