Exactly! And hey, just 'cause some can't vote doesn't mean they can't write letters to presidential candidates or go to a rally or something when they come through town. There's still plenty of ways to interact with politicians aside from voting.

That said, I'm really thankful to have been born in October . 2004 was my first time voting in a presidential race.

Just watched that thing with Obama, by the way. He sounds very sincere, and I really like that. He sounds very believable and convincing. And I liked his thoughts, too-it was nice to actually hear a reasonable solution to the immigration issue for once, for instance. And any president that pushes for diplomacy as a means to deal with problems definitely gets some points with me (way to sneak the AIDS in Africa crisis in there, too). The crowd asked some great questions as well. Good stuff. Thanks again for that.

This will be my first presidential election. I'm pretty excited. I voted in the midterms last year, but that didn't go so well...

I got through maybe the first 45 minutes before I was done.

It's supposed to be a debate ideally, but the reality is that the other candidates are going to spend that time picking apart the person who most likely is going to win the nomination.

I'll pay closer attention to one of these when that's no longer the case. I'll be waiting awhile, methinks.

The last 45 minutes was much better than the first 45, IMO.

Mostly because each candidate was getting time, and they had a limit.

I was watching Dancing With The Stars and Boston Legal

Washington Post

UFOs and Alien Life

In the weird last minutes of the debate (the period, by the way, when The Fix made it onto the basketball court in high school) Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) gave us a highlight.

Asked about the statement by actress Shirley MacLaine that Kucinich had seen a UFO at her house, Kucinich said that he had. He quickly sought to clarify -- an "unidentified flying object" he said holding up his hand -- but man oh man.

The big news tonight: DENNIS KUCINICH HAS SEEN A UFO.

Obama did not take the bait when asked whether he thought there is life on other planets. "I believe there is life here on Earth," he said, turning his answer into a domestic policy statement.

Funny how it's Kucinich who questions Bush's mental health.

Kucinich might have the last laugh.


For all we know he's an alien leader sent to rule human life on earth...and once he gets into a position of power an entire army of aliens will come and conquer us!!!!!!!!!


Or maybe he's just a strange little man

I think the majority of the country questions Bush's mental health these days...

and those that don't, I question theirs.

Kucinich talking about his own personal experience is far less alarming than Bush trying to use the same scare tactics as before by threatening WW3.

Kucinich Questions Bush's Mental Health

17 hours ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich questioned President Bush's mental health in light of comments he made about a nuclear Iran precipitating World War III.

"I seriously believe we have to start asking questions about his mental health," Kucinich, an Ohio congressman, said in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer's editorial board on Tuesday. "There's something wrong. He does not seem to understand his words have real impact."

Kucinich, known for his liberal views, trails far behind the leading candidates in most Democratic polls. He was in Philadelphia for a debate at Drexel University.

Bush made the remarks at a news conference earlier this month.

He said: "I've told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them (Iran) from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon."

Kucinich said he doesn't believe his comments about the president's mental health are irresponsible, according to a story posted on the newspaper's Web site.

"You cannot be a president of the United States who's wanton in his expression of violence," Kucinich said. "There's a lot of people who need care. He might be one of them. If there isn't something wrong with him, then there's something wrong with us. This, to me, is a very serious question."

In response, Republican National Committee spokesman Dan Ronayne said it was hard to take Kucinich seriously.
Kucinich isn't harming anybody with his own UFO sightings. Bush seems to enjoy the idea of sending off our friends and families into harmful situations.
