her paper-thin record on Israel
So maybe it would have done her better if she "went to the wailing wall at 5 a m and had her people put up a banner and used the holy site for a cheap campaign photo op"?

I agree. As a (socialist of course) foreigner I'm all but convinced of what he has said regarding his foreign policies so far.
Nonetheless, I would take his foreign policy approach over that of Giuliani any day and twice on Sunday. That one really frightened me.

I'd vote for Obama over Giuliani

I'd vote for John Edwards over Giuliani

Giuliani was the biggest joke in this whole election cycle.

And what, in your mind, are the biggest differences between Guiliani and McCain that make McCain that much more appealing to you? I'm not trying to prove anything here, I'm genuinely asking a question.

They are going to side with the underdog (Palin) and fight the bullly (The Democrats)...maybe McCain is smarter than everyone thinks and knew this is exactly what would happen. Or maybe not. But I'm really beginning to wonder from the majority of reactions from the "left" on such a non-issue as some teen girl getting knocked up. Let it go already. Before it bites you where it hurts.
Which Dems are talking about it? The media circus is talking about it, right radio is talking about it, but which Dems are talking about it? Please show me. Has anyone in here condemned or judged them?

Rudy did a good job w Brokaw.

Rudy NY pimped slapped him at least a 1/2 dozen times all under 2 minutes.



Tom look like a deer in the headlights.

Another honest question regardding "vetting" Sarah vs Obama.

The MSM has vilified Sarah and her family more over the last 72 hours than Obama over the last 2 years.

How can honest people can defend that here?

While Sarah has been beaten over the head by the Left Stream Media for the last 3 days, Obama has been coddled for 2 years.

And he still only has a fragile lead over John McCain -even with all the favored press.

Yes and no, for both candidates. I don't their life experiences, in and of themselves, make them qualified to be president. I believe it's the choices they made as a result of their experiences that prove their leadership ability. In other words, I don't think that serving in a war, or being a community organizer qualify one to be president. I feel it's the decisions made and paths taken both of these candidates after these experiences that prove they're qualified to hold office. Every experience, as you and others said, shapes who we are, so I'm sure both of these experiences in some way lead Obama and McCain to want to serve their country in government, which they've both done, and allowed them to run campaigns that proved they have what it takes to hold the office. That being said, I do disagree with nearly everything he stands for, and while I feel he may be qualified to be president, I don't feel he understands or had the plans that will help our country in the challenges we face at home or abroad.

i think you're right, but at least what's nice is that the Republicans have told us that all of their earlier complaints about Obama -- lack of experience, surrounding himself with so-called radicals, angry preachers -- really don't matter any more. because all of these things are true, in droves, about Ms. Palin. so they're saying that, really, it doesn't matter. positions matter. policies matter. it's the issues that matter.

i'm so relieved.

Jesus, I didn't know we had a former or even current president who is a veteran of multiple wars here at Interference. Or are you just a cabinet member?

Way to go, Interference! Scoring a top administration official.

guys, let's lay off MI. i think we all fly off the handle at certain points, i think we all make impassioned, sometimes angry, posts that we read the next day and wish we maybe hadn't written, and i think we all know that MI is almost always polite and even generous in his posts, and given what he's suggested about his life, he's a very compassionate person who actually walks to the talk. i agree that a few of the posts last night did cross some lines, but i think we all should move on.

You're consistently a nicer person than I am, Irvine. I mean that.

So, ok.
