And aren't we thankful for that?

Well Chuck Norris supports the Huckster.

Little known fact

There is no chin behind Chuck's beard. Just another fist.

Chuck is an ape thus proving Huckabee wrong.

If NH votes like this board, Obama will get 50% of the vote in the Dem primary. That kind lead will be a death knell to HC.

NOT HILLARY

I voted for Perot, Perot, Bush and Bush in the 4 elections since I was old enough to vote.

I am likely leaning towards Edwards or McCain (if both run, not sure). I am not registered with either party. I only vote in Presidential elections or when my community puts up a school levy (I usually vote no).

Interesting. At least on this forum, the "early returns" are evenly split between the two parties ... 44 for a republican and 41 for a democrat.

Looks like the Obamarama continues on the D side here inside the ER forums.

And the R side is as topsy-turvey as it is outside the forums.

I this the year of the sea-change in American politics?

Interesting it is split about 48% dems to 52% repub. I guess this board mirrors the nation. Another poll would be 'Are you going to vote!'

Absolutely! I haven't missed a voting opportunity since I turned 18. If I don't vote, I can't gripe. With local, state, and national elections, I get renewed griping-rights almost every year!

In our most recent city election my mayoral candidate won by 5 votes and was sworn in. The losing candidate demanded a manual recount which put him up by three. Out with the (7 days) old mayor, and in with the new.

But wait a minute! Seems that after the manual recount a couple of the first winner's ballots were found in the trash can.

What's next?

You guessed it - a lawsuit. Filed today by the first winner to demand either reinstatement of the first result or a run-off, the recount being impossibly flawed.

Side events -- the current (new) mayor tells us that god has spoken to him about a plan for the town, while the old mayor and recent lawsuit filer was arrested just prior to the holidays for public drunkeness.

Who needs a national primary with drama like this right in one's home town?

(That said, I'm backing the girl.)

Oh how the heck did I miss a chuck norris reference for a whole day?!?

When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isnít lifting himself up, heís pushing the Earth down.

We dont live in a democracy, america is a Chucktatorship.
