Well, I just hope Obama can continue to help put food on my family and enable gynecologists to practice their love for women. Cause you can't get fooled again.<br><br>

<br><br>I laughed hard at that the first time and it's still great. But note, I wasn't "bitter" then, and I'm still not. Nor am I fool. The train is leaving the station, I am on board. Granted, I'm not sitting in the cheering section, but I'll save my reservations for a more appropriate time. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

Yep, popularity and world opinion are important qualifications for running our country. Who cares about experience in local government and foreign policy, minor points.<br><br>It appears this is more like American Idol than a presidential election.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game

I thought you were being a bit out of character. <br><br>If Hillary makes VP I might consider voting for him, but if not, I doubt it.<br><br>(And I can't believe I replied in the Political morass.

If the interest/participation in the upcoming November election is as high as it is/was in 'American Idol'... Wouldn't that be great?<br>IMHO, we'll see more Americans voting in this election than in the previous four.<br>(Just dreaming/hoping)<br><br>[color:blue][/b]Hodie mihi.

Let's hope the interest is for the right reasons and not like american Idol just superficial popularity due to race or fancy speeches.<br><br>Like I mentioned in another post, the race card is being played on both sides.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
