I'm not so sure that Obama needs to be "groomed" for the position. I think he could step right in, and with the right Congress get truly meaningful stuff done right away. Why? Because he inspires people. I'm not just talking about the electorate either. I can see him making an appeal to Congress-- and I can see all but the most corrupt among them at least giving him a listen. Politics as usual? Obama might be just a little more immune to that. America might support Hillary. America will march for Barrack.<br><br>I thought the debate was terrific. It was good for both candidates. It was good for the Democratic party. And it was ultimately good for America. Obama cleaned Hillary's clock on the Iraq issue (as we all knew he would), but I must admit that his healthcare proposal leaves me wanting. Either that, of I don't fully understand his position. Hillary knows the healthcare issue like no one else and if Obama could adopt her position on the issue I'd be ecstatic. <br><br>I can't wait for November. Four years ago I had chilling a bottle of 1990 Dom and I was so psyched for it. It's wasn't consumed for reasons that are so painfully obvious. <br><br>That Champagne is going to taste awfully good this time around<br><br>

12 to 16 years of illiberalism?<br><br>There is something very odd about those numbers. It's hard to tell whether you're being overly pessimistic or whether that's wishful thinking.<br><br>Makes you wonder whether you aren't echoing the sentiments of every moderate to far-right Republican in the country. You could be, however the number of Americans calling themselves Republicans has jumped to its higest level in just two years. 34% now say they are affiliated with the GOP, whereas Democrats' numbers fell one point to 36%.<br><br>The GOP numbers fell to an all-time low in May, coming in at 30%. According to the report, it was the raging immigration debate that rallied Republicans and membership shot up. So Republicans are passionate about immigration? <br><br>Instead of going back to Germany, maybe you should stand and fight instead of taking a leave of absence. <br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
I thought that odd too...<br><br>mmm ...lets see GOP took over Congress in 1994... <br>Man I didn't know Newt was a liberal... <br><br>GOP got WH in 2001 and the GOP had 6 years of running the whole show 2001-2007 House , Senate, WH the whole shee-bang ... Cheney, Rice, Rummy, Lott, Hasert...etc<br>Oh man - ALL those Liberals ...<br>must drive Bush nutz, ...<br>oh wait ,... he's been that way for years. <br><br><br>David (OFI)
I hope you keep your word on that!<br><br>If I visit any former MCF people in meat space, Eckhard was first on my wish list because of his Macintosh work and because he lives in an area I'd really like to see!<br><br>Then if you're there too, I can visit you both. We can have a real ball! <br><br>

She still is. That is up to the democratic nomination. She is the most beatable of the two. That is the real reason why I have been endorsing her. <br>However, to play both sides against the middle. If she does win the WH, then I fully expect that our state of NY will receive more than its fair share of federal largesse. <br><br>

You'll have to pry my GOP voter registration card from my cold dead fingers before I would give up the good fight. Liberals are there to be defeated. And I'll leave the good old US of A when every idiot that declared the same thing if Kerry lost follows through with their threat. <br><br>
