Twiggy1984: I must admit, Obama does seem like a breath of fresh air compared to all the others, Democrat or Republican.

Some Democrats aren`t gonna be so stupid to vote Republican just so Hillary can`t get the White House are they? What, and risk getting another Republican as Prez? :curse:

I kind of like Hillary. Must be a power thang!

Even if i could vote(which i can`t) it`ll be between Hillary or Obama for the Dems. Sorry, just couldn`t vote republican. They`re to sleazy and lets face it, everyones had enough of Dubya.
And the democrats are not. Give me an effing break. If someone does not like the president no matter who it is (Dem, Rep, etc), the office should be respected.

I DO and would respect the Office of President, just not Dubya. Who can truly say he`s been a good President??? The war in Iraq costing hundreds of thousands of lives, failing to sign up for ANY environmental laws, countless lies, and abuses of power, low standing of the US in the world, need i go on?
Even people withing the republicans can`t wait to get rid of him!

Thing is, it could very well happen!

I remember a poll (can't remember which one as there have been more than I can think of) which measured the percentage of people who would NOT vote for a nominee, if they were put up as candidates.

Hillary topped that one, and this poll frightens me because...

It essentially means that if she were to get the democratic nomination, more democrats would either vote for someone else, or refuse to vote just to prevent her from getting to the White house.

And if that ends up being the case, it would mean that a great number of what would previously have been democratic votes, would either go off the radar or be given to the republicans.

Gaaaah!! It scares the crap out of me!

[/QUOTE]p.s. if you are not a US citizen, you can politely tell people who are soliciting money that it is illegal for you to contribute to any US election. Great way of getting away from the fundraisers.[/QUOTE]

That's a good strategy for getting rid of the fundraisers but in reality, so long as you are an LPR, you can contribute to the coffers:

I would put money that Rudy will be the next president . As for sleaze i would say ever president of the US has been Sleazy to a degree the important thing is that there sleaze represents the publics Sleaze .

Sounds kinda crazy saying that but Reagan and Clinton were both real good Presidents both bent the rules for themselves from time to time . But the majority of people thought it was either a good thing or really didnt matter . a huge difference from a current leadership

We need a constitution, with a 22nd ammendment for London.

I don't consider myself a Republican but I will have to say that he affected my life in a positive way. He was responsible for increasing military spending and raising the morale of our troops after they had taken a serious blow during the Vietnam war. My dad will tell you that it was pretty bleak for all those involved. Because of this spending, my father's chances of becoming a 'career man' became a reality. I and so many other dependents, spouses, and civilian workers benefited from this as well. I would definitely be a different person had this not occurred. For that I'm thankful for his administration. However on the other hand his economic policies had a lot left to be desired.
