Yes, that's true. But I think he would take more votes from the left than the right, though. I can't picture a whole lot of pro-war people voting for him even if they agree with everything else he says. I could be wrong.
But you can imagine Hillary voters voting for him?? Seriously, on what planet? He stands for virtually everything in 180 degree opposition to her platform.

I think they have a master plan to take out the GOP nominee

here is step one

Would-be Ford assassin freed from prison on parole

Sara Jane Moore released on parole from federal prison in California

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- One of the women who tried to assassinate President Ford 32 years ago was released on parole Monday from a federal prison in California

, according to a Bureau of Prisons spokesman.

Sara Jane Moore, 77, was released in the morning from the federal women's prison in Dublin, outside San Francisco

, according to Mike Truman of the Bureau of Prisons.

There was no immediate comment from the prison facility, where Moore had been Inmate No. 04851180. Officials said she had a recent parole hearing, but they did not know what prompted her release. - really?

Nor was it clear what her plans are or where she is headed. really?

In the general election, Bloomberg received Giuliani's endorsement.

He also had a huge spending advantage. Although New York City's campaign finance law restricts the amount of contributions which a candidate can accept, Bloomberg chose not to use public campaign funds and therefore his campaign was not subject to these restrictions.
He spent some $73 million of his own money on his campaign, outspending Green by five to one.

Bloomberg won 50% to 48%.


Rove = Guiliani


Guiliani = Bloomberg


Bloomberg = Rove master plan for GOP win

Ya think?

Jeepers. I was all set to vote for Hillary because she's a girl, but now that you point out that Ron hates the war, I might have to change my mind.

Sounds almost like Joe Lieberman's blueprint for success for the CT Senate seat. Rudy also held a lot of the same "liberal" positions as Bloomberg in the past as mayor.

Democratic Presidential candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich opened the New Year by publicly asking his Iowa supporters to vote for him in the caucuses this Thursday, and suggesting that if he did not make the 15% threshold, their second ballot should be for Senator Barack Obama.
I was starting to worry a bit about Obama because he had some sketchy poll results in the last week or so. Definitely wasn't going great. But this morning's poll is fantastic, and although Kucinich isn't polling well in Iowa, it's something.

Ah yes, the good ole VLWC.

I wouldn't put it past your crowd to bomb a few buildings and blame it on the Moslems.
