Picking Biden for VP is the 2nd biggest mistake the Dumbocrats have made. If Obama had selected either Hillary or Kathleen Sebelius as VP, Ms. Palin
would not have been an issue.
Oh I apologise on their behalf, I mean we liberals never knew how naive and desperate women were to vote in a female candidate to stand behind John
McCain.... oh the women will just line up for Palin now.... I mean Hillary voters will just line up for Palin, shes a woman you know? they have to
vote her, they probably will, since their women and they all think alike. I mean they only voted in Hillary becuase she was female.
Im happy im not a Hillary supporter or a woman for that matter, I would be insulted I tell ya.
The biggest mistake is picking Obama as the nominee. Look at the polls, it's a dead heat. In this current political climate, a generic
Democrat would lead a generic Republican by 15 pts. This shows Obama is a very weak Democratic candidate.
I beg to differ
this is a very historic election and there are other factors to consider.
-Obama is the first black nominee of a major party, he is the first black/minority to actually have a chance to be president of the United states.
-Obama has only been known by the public for two years now, compared to McCain and Hillary's years of name recognition, well its pritty hard to get
your message across in comparison.
-His the first biracial candidate to have a chance to win in a western country.
-He just got off beating Hillary, I mean honestly now, Hillary was probably tougher to compete with compared to McCain now
-He doesnt have an already established base like McCain or Hilary does, the kind of base that takes years to form.
-McCain already ran for president for what? like twice? He knows the election process.
and last but not least, 3years ago if you told somebody we will have the first black nominee of a major party in history, they would laugh in your
face and probably say more like 2030. My point? Technically, well socially, we're asking alot of america, we are asking something to happen decades
ahead of time. I well and truly believe Obama has that chance, but the above should be noted.
