  • I was surprised to hear that she wanted it actually.  That is scary Toni - I hope that's not what she thinks.  I don't think it is actually.  I think it would be good if she were on the ticket though - then the party could really come together.  I am pulling for Howard to kick butt with his 50 state strategy.  Ok there you know who I voted for, in case you had any question!

    I was kinda surprised too!  I think if they could work together, without any arguements, it may just work.  But I think she'd be better off getting out of the spotlight and just running again in 4 years!!

    Yep as in Dean - he's chair of the Dem party.  Has been organizing the grassroots efforts.  I like Hillary - voted for her in the primary.  Hope Obama does win - need some Chicago inflence at the White House.  Brat cookout on the mall!

  • I voted when this was first put up (Obama)...it's close.  What will be neat is to watch how our mini vote compares to the real thing.

  • Sorry- I did have a cup of the Obama KoolAid on the table at one time......then I spit in it.

    Not for one second will I vote for a man whos been spiritually led by someone like Jeremiah Wright!
    Not for one second do I believe he had NO IDEA what this man was about and him denouncing Wright was a publicity stunt
    Have a backbone......I was appalled when the catholic church swept all those pedofile priests under the rug and I refuse to worship there.....and Im not running for the most important job in the world.

    John Edwards had already pointed out Obama's tendacy to vote present instead of yes or no....... have a backbone! Esp if you criticize ANYONE..... for their choices. And thats anyone from W, Hillary Edwards or McCain.

    Sorry- the guy couldnt really seal the deal and got a gift from the DNC when they ruled on FL and MI. That wouldve changed to whole race before that.

    No Im not a fan of Hillary...... (she really had her 2 terms already) but I did start to respect her for sticking it out like she did despite what her own party was telling her.

    But I do understand some who are choosing Obama- like I said it depends on how one weighs issues.

  • thanks and as a footnote.......
    I dont want people to thing that race or sex had a factor into this decision because
    I would probably vote for these two faster than I would vote for John McCain

    Funny- they both had the same job......

    maybe vice president?

    I agree with this. I liked him at first, too, but the more I learn the more concerned I become.

    I don't like John McCain much, either. It's like choosing between a rock and a hard place.

    I would have considered voting for Hillary if she won. But only because I just don't care for McCain.

    Where are the better candidates?  :-\

  • Funny, I agree with everything Chris has said, but I'll still go with Obama over McCain!  I don't really care for either of them, but the issues that I am concerned with most have me choosing Obama!  Really, it will come down to VP's for my final decision.  If McCain chooses Connie, I may just go with him!!  But we'll see, I don't agree with a lot of republican stand points on issues such as gay rights, abortion and some health care stuff.  I guess it'll be a waiting game!  Damn Hillary, why'd you have to drop out!!!!

    She didn't, technically but she really didnt have a choice. The DNC was pushing her out anyway.
