Are you referring to Barack Obama, who also spent part of his youth in Hawaii?

I'd vote for him regardless of what ticket he ran on.

The entertainment value: priceless.

Probably true. I HOPE he's disgusted. I expect this country will elect a black man before it elects a woman president.

I think that Clinton will not get the democratic party omination. The wiser heads in the party will not support her because she clearly cannot win, so the nomination will probably go to someone more centrist. I personally would vote against her, although I would have a tough (and nauseating) decision to make if it were her or Lieberman.

I'm also hoping for a Tom Delay & Pat Robertson republican ticket.

Re: The democratic candidate for president in 08, from the great state of new york

I just want to vote For someone instead of Against another one. Choices in Pres. elections have been pretty darn thin over the years. I also agree with Brewer on cleaning house in congress. Limit terms and clean house to keep out the "lifers". "Politics" is counter productive to serving the people.

Entertaining, but a bit of a brinksmanship game for those of us who are more inclined to the center. 80% chance of getting a centrist democrat (since the kleptocratic fundie duo would likely lose), but 20% chance of having to leave the country in a hurry.

I'm from Mass. Good old Congressman Marty Meehan ran under the oath he would only serve two terms. He changed his mind and said he could do too much good for the people. Mass. keeps electing him and the knucklehead twins to the Senate.

I've also seen the rants on other boards about Senators, congressman, etc changing history in their Files on a new Library web site (can't recall the name) Marty got his term limit Oath deleted.

Scum bag.

I really like Wonder Woman, but most of America don't like a smart woman with a whip that kicks *ss.

On the other hand, Johnny Bravo, clean-cut ladies man type, people will go for

Re: The democratic candidate for president in 08, from the great state of new york

For those who didnt get the joke, there was an old Brady Bunch episode where Greg got picked to be "the next rock and roll superstar", Johnny Bravo. After he did his demo tape he found the whole thing had been modified with special effects to make him sound different. At the end, he found out they didnt care about how he sounded, he just happened to be a perfect fit for the white one piece outfit they had already bought.

Somewhere along Wesley Clarks run in the primaries, someone quipped that he was just Johnny Bravo. The dems had a suit, and he seemed to fit it.

I really enjoyed the 30+ year old tv reference. Thought I'd share
