  • If Bush was so bad, why was he elected a second term?

    this notion of 8 bad years makes me think voters are either just forgetful or plain stupid. surely, bush's first four years could not have been that bad, after all, you re-elected him! i will admit though that the remaining four years weren't that rosy.

  • Dems, if obama were ugly, would you still support him? Reps, what about palin, would you still be as enthused?

    The issue of physical attraction does not get as much traction as that of race, sex, or age, but i observe that it plays a significant role in people's support or enthusiasm for a candidate, and might be just as big if not bigger than the aforementioned issues. Don't get me wrong; i am not suggesting that all those who support obama or palin are... show more

Don't get me wrong; i am not suggesting that all those who support obama or palin are doing so merely on the basis that they're good-looking (there are many people who support them for reasons i find legitimate), but i find that the enthusiasm and support of a significant portion of people would be dramatically lessened if either of these candidates were perceived as ugly! I have repeatedly heard the phrase, "Obama's so handsome, he's quite presidential!" Or the phrase, "Palin's so pretty, she's a breath of fresh air and would make a good leader!" Needless to say, i find both types of comments to be utterly ridiculous, suggesting that good-looks would or can in any way be a measure of one's leadership skills is utterly preposterous! Are we this superficial? Or am i mistaken? Your objective thoughts, please...

  • Does it concern you that Palin is being attacked for her belief in God..are we becoming a Godless society?

    I'd like to think of myself as a conservative democrat, and as one, i cannot help but agree with Palin's statement that America is becoming so anti-God that it's very disappointing and painful to witness. In fact, it seems that politicians with strong religious convictions are more prone to attacks than those with hardly any. Are we shifting to... show more

In fact, it seems that politicians with strong religious convictions are more prone to attacks than those with hardly any. Are we shifting to an atheistic society, and is this reflective of the elections thus far? Are you concerned?

  • Just how reliable are these poll numbers? Can we trust them?

    I am a democrat and I do NOT trust these poll numbers. According to the polls in 2000 and 2004, both of my candidates, Gore in 2000, and Kerry in 2004, were leading by significant margins in the polls, and I was very hopeful, only to be disappointed both times after the general election. So, just how seriously should we take these poll numbers?... show more

  • Do you think Obama is being attacked because of his policies, or race? or BOTH?

    While i agree with Obama's policies on the war and the economy, i sincerely believe that America will move forward regardless of who wins. I think both McCain and Obama are patriotic and honorable men. What troubles me though is that Obama is being uncharacteristically attacked on grounds for which previous democratic presidential candidates have... show more
    While i agree with Obama's policies on the war and the economy, i sincerely believe that America will move forward regardless of who wins. I think both McCain and Obama are patriotic and honorable men. What troubles me though is that Obama is being uncharacteristically attacked on grounds for which previous democratic presidential candidates have not. While his very race represents a change in itself, it seems many are worried it would represent an overturn in the way things have gone on before. I believe this is baseless...we are moving forward to a point where we can embrace a candidate regardless of what color he embodies, and i think that in itself (though not completely) still indicates progress. We don't need to fear an overturn..we just need to embrace the fact that ALL of us, REGARDLESS of color, can have equal chances of representation. And this is a change we should all welcome. While I would never urge any of you to vote for him simply because of this fact, I sincerely hope you will NEVER oppose him because of it. Today, we have a black candidate...tomorrow it might be a Hispanic, an Oriental, or Arabic, and I would hope that NONE of them would ever be opposed simply on the basis of their ethnicity. I have family members (black) who intend to vote for McCain because they actually identify with his issues (on abortion, the war, etc.), but who witness all the back-lashing against Obama, and are now REACTING to what they see as gross unfairness by actually considering to vote for him. This is not the America we want! Let's disagree with each other based on our policies and NOT on our ethnicity...I BEG YOU! your thoughts, please...
