With all the cat fights going on between Clinton & Obama. A lot of the people are starting to look elsewhere for better folks to put in there. I for one would not vote for either. They are acting way to childish. Edwards acts like a real man and would be the best of the 3. Hilda

My initial gut feeling does point towards Don’s thinking about the Republicans pulling a fast one. Its not a good thing no matter what the reasoning behind it is. All of this serves to re enforce the impression that the US political system was designed for minority control long before the days of 24 hour news networks and special interest groups.
I think we're going to see this issue tested out at some point in this calendar year. I really don't see how its legal for a political party to decide which delegates get seated from which States. I would be just as mad if the GOP had done the same, or similar. It's up to the individual States to decide when they vote, and it needs to be that way.
At this late date, nobody is going to be made "happy." Even if Mr. Dean does what you suggest, the Dems are on their way towards a power grab that would make any carpet-bagging Republican jealous.
Why has race become such a factor in this election? Senator Clinton grew up in an era when racism was still common. It’s not much of a factor for my own generation, but it was common in her day. It’s ironic to me that she started in such a strong position to win the Presidency. Now, she’s being brought down by a base and low form of indoctrinated hate that no longer has a place in today’s world. For that reason, I am embarrassed.
Once upon a time, I actually thought [Hillary] was smart. I didn’t think she could lose. Now, all I want her to do is go away. Ah, but …. we need to see this thing through. For the sake of the nation, we need to let this thing run its course. As a disabled person, I know first hand that there is no place in our society for the old hates. I disagree very much with Democrat philosophy, but I still want them to act like adults. I’m all for a spirited debate, but Hillary is acting like a spoiled brat who is trying to take the other kid’s toy. Not only have I over-estimated her smarts, I’ve also under-estimated her greed. It’s an interesting predicament. A better society in exchange for 8 years of bad politics. Can we survive it?
Hmm what is the point of an Open Primary ? If I'm not a member of a party I don't see how that gives me any right to decided on who leads the party in question or decided a party candidate.
As for eight years of bad politics in exchange for a better society I am reminded of LBJ Great Society agenda that seems to have more damage then good.
If Obama is elected and he can create a less partisan environment from the ground up you will see both better politics and a better society. This will due to more then one mind set working together to solve problems. Sure there are a lot of Ifs but that is my best answer for now. I have also haven't dealt the fact that what either of the three candidates have in mind wont match your ideas concerning the size of the Federal government.
OK I should have expanded on my point about Great Society more. Take the wide spread construction of state housing led to the slums that are around today. That is an example of bad policy and a better society don't mix.
I’m all for an honest and spirited debate, but Hillary is acting like a spoiled brat who is trying to take the other kid’s toy.

I’ll say my piece. If Obama or Hillary become our next President, I’ll continue to make my case with good manners and dignity. I will also recognize the fact that the election of either one will transform our society in ways that going to be good. It’s an interesting predicament. A better society in exchange for 8 years of bad politics. Can we survive it?
The size of government is relative . . There are no absolutes . . it is vital that a country judicial system and the running of elections are above political meddling.
Rather then advocating small government I aim for a mostly Libertarian stance on most social issues and no unnecessary regulation of the private sector.
Pavlova is named after Russian ballerina who is connected with its introduction in this part of the world. As the name suggests Anzac Biscuits either first originated in either Australia or New Zealand.

As for the Florida thing wasn't that election moved up by the republicans ?
What is clear is that it isn't democracy to allow the original result to stand as Obama did not have his name on the ticket at Michigan and did not campaign in Florida because it was known in advance that it would not count.
That speaks volumes about the lady's shifting ethics.
People voting at the polls shouldn't be confused with democracy in the US. The US is some kind of warped Republic . Michigan and Florida may vote again.
