I like diamond, honestly.

He at least seems principled, which is #3 on Jesus' most important trait list.

Unfortunately, #2 is consistency.

Although he rebounds with Jesus' #1, honesty.

He'd probably be the first to admit he's a hypocrite.

Jesus passed these on to his American dog. He was a mutt, much debate but most historians agree the dog was part schnauzer. Because he hated Jews for some odd reason.
he realyed the message in Liberal, Kansas 1954.

This is all contained in books written by the prophet Steve Johnson.

Liberal, Kansas has a very good airplane museum, and a very weird Wizard of Oz museum.

Yeah, Bush had only being governor of Texas as his experience. No foreign policy background at all. And yes, he screwed up every company he touched. His family bailed him out.

Interesting that the Boston paper also endorsed Obama.

I guess he thinks it's amusing, or he'll get attention from it. I don't know, don't care either. Any kicking in the balls certain men will feel if Hillary is elected is nothing compared to what Bush has done to this country. All balls, no brain or heart or soul. Intelligent evolved men don't think with their balls.

ABC's Sunlen Miller Reports: Barack Obama has often said he'd consider putting Republicans in his cabinet and even bandied about names like Sens. Dick Lugar and Chuck Hagel. He's a added a new name to the list of possible Republicans cabinet members - Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Obama regularly says he would look to Republicans to fill out his cabinet if he was elected, but at a town hall event in Manchester, N.H., he was pushed to name names.

“It’s premature for me to start announcing my cabinet. I mean, I’m pretty confident. but I’m not all that confident. We still got a long way to go,” Obama said.

But then the GOP names started to flow.

Sen. Dick Lugar: “He’s a Republicans who I worked with on issues of arms control, wonderful guy. He is somebody I think embodies the tradition of a bipartisan foreign policy that is sensible, that is not ideological, that is based on the idea that we have to have some humility and restraint in terms of our ability to project power around the world,” Obama said about his Senate colleague.

Sen. Chuck Hagel: “A Vietnam vet, similar approach and somebody I respect in a similar fashion,” Obama added.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: “What (he’s) doing on climate change in California is very important and significant. There are things I don't agree with him on, but he's taken leadership on a very difficult issue and we haven't seen that kind of leadership in Washington," Obama said of the California governor.

One Republican that likely Obama won’t consider? Mitt Romney.

In answering a question on immigration, Obama said it would be impossible to lock all the illegal immigrants up, even if he wanted to.

“We'd clear out some of the prisons to make room for somebody who's a housekeeper at Mitt Romney's house,” he joked. “(He’s) an example of somebody who, 'Oh, we gotta be real tough. But my lawn, you know, is important.' "

I like this guy more and more...

He just makes sense, something I can't say about most politicians.

This is just silly

it may sway a few independents

who don't realize these people are what GOPers call RINOs

Those three could not get elected in GOP primary

Arnold is only in office because if a recall



Next we will have a GOP candidate say he is open to working with Lieberman.

Right. I was just thinking that.

Lugar and Hagel are probably not toward the top of most Republicans' "Favorite Republicans" lists. Certainly not mine, anyways. Both of them happen to be anti-Iraq War, and that is far from what I would call reaching across the aisle.

Well, why would any anti-Iraq war person want to have a cabinet member who's for the war?

He's not looking for a cabinet with views completely opposite him. That would just be stupid.

I may not choose people who oppose my viewpoint for my cabinet. But I would damn well choose many advisors who did not share my point of view. While it might be nice to have a bunch of people telling me "Great idea, boss," I'd want some who would tell me, "With all due respect, Madame President, you're a stupid fuck and here's why." I want all the options presented to me.

I heard Senator Lugar speak at the 2004 Africare dinner. He was good. He's a smart man.

John F. Kennedy did not surround himself with yes men.
Clinton did not surround himself with yes men.

Bush has....what do you think?
