    Interesting choice, but I wonder how conservative she may really be? It's possible, in fact, I think it happens all the time, that people serve in an administration in which they don't really agree with often, and yet feel the desire to serve their country and in the capacity the President asks them to serve.

    But I think she would certainly make for interesting VP choice. Although, the Bush administration is so unpopular these days, being linked to Rumsfield, Bush, and Cheney they way she is, is not an over-all plus in her favor.

    After taking some time to digest Obama's relationship with Rev. Wright (which concerns me), after reevaluating Obama, Clinton, and McCain, after reevaluating their positions on issues, their temperament, their experience and background, after thinking about the type of leader this nation needs at this point in history, I still support Obama.

    I admit that I'm not as enthusiastic as before, but given the choices currently available, I feel Obama would make the better president.

    You might have a point there, especially if most people in the United States are like you.

    In a democracy, the government is only as good as its people.

    When I vote for a Republican they usually lose, when I vote for a Democrat they usually lose, and when I vote for an independent or a third party candidate they always lose. Which leads me to conclude, quite smugly by the way, that if this state and nation are screwed up, its not my fault, its the fault of people like AlphaDog. If people agreed with me more often and voted more like me, our country and state would be in a far better position than it currently is. Aaaah, to be an elitist, it feels good. 8)

    Wow, I agree with Demarn! However, let me say this. While I think Obama absolutely has a chance of winning, I still do not want to see him win. His chances have been severely hampered of late with the recent scandals (e.g. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and "bitter" voters) but that does not mitigate the fact that he is a legitimate candidate (unlike Ralph Nader) who will score a significant number of votes.

    Default Support Barack Obama

    I dont think all supporters of Obama are communists or socialists but I believe that different people latch on to different messages from the same candidate and ignore the rest. Theres no doubt in my mind that at the very heart of Obama is a rabid socialist and possibly even communist.

    This last post has to be the funniest thing I've read on this board. Rabid Socialist, would that mean he's for social services and has also been bitten by an animal infected by rabies? And possibly even communist? Is the jury still out on that? Are you waiting for the final tally to come in.

    Socialist and Communist are words the "right" like to throw around because they can't argue against the point that everyone should have healthcare and the financial system needs to have regulations. Instead of arguing points they argue based on fear.

    Personally, democratic socialism exists in many nations that are doing quite well. Look into Sweden, they seem to be doing just fine. And when the UN rates France as the top nation healthcare wise and the US doesn't crack the top 30 let alone top 10, there's something seriously wrong with that.

    The right will have the poor people believe that they're the party for them. Until they lose their jobs and have nothing for them. You'd think the party that is so religious and Christian would actually be a little more Christ-like.

    I think it's great to go back and see what we were saying before the election.

    BTW, looking at my own writings: as predicted the dollar is up. Not sure if I'd call it a "soar," but it's up quite a bit since the election.

    We'll see what happens when we lose our AAA rating. If you are thinking about a trip to Europe, now would be a fine time.
