I'm glad to see guilty until proven innocent is alive and well.

The Washington Post

With a 400+ EV landslide, President Bush and Vice President Cheney have been shut out of the Republican Party, thanks to the monster of the ticket we know as the Daschle/Cleland, who crushed the fragile attempt at a third term by Bush, who lost the Senate and House to the Democrats due to a mix of reasons, mostly due to his repeal of the 22nd Amendment in early 2006, which both Cleland and failed Republican Candidate Chaffee bashed the incumbent for. President Daschle promises to include Universal Health Care and a 12 Dollar Minimum wage in his new package, entitled "Daschlecare", economists see the DOW rebounding with 100 points by May. President Bush has given his concession speech a couple of hours ago.

Will the mass-murdering Cambodian dictator sink the Guntaker?

Will Snowstalker stop making stupid posts?

Given that he is basically a true leftist cross between BTRD and BushOklahoma, I highly doubt it.

Can we get a general election, Dallas?

No. Once you meet the republican base, you realize where the Klan has gone.

Hillary is defeated in the Primaries by Warren, who goes on to defeat Santorum/Cruz, taking Ohio in a landslide.

Cheesy

This hasn't been a good year for Tea Party Senate insurgents. They fizzled out in TX, IL, CO, KY...I don't see McDaniel winning this.

The Tea Party's best opportunity to win a Senate primary at this point is GA and only because there are so many candidates that a run-off is inevitable.

Georgia, North Carolina, and especially Nebraska are definite tea-party primary opportunities.  South Carolina, Alaska, and Mississippi could potentially go their way, but probably won't.  They could also cause trouble for Cassidy by forcing him too far to the right/directing their attacks at him rather than Landrieu, although he'll definitely make it to the runoff.

Well, in a plutocracy you have to fight money with money. I hope that this manages to gets something accomplished, but then again he is trying to take on the NRA. I wish him luck with this.
Bloomberg is just as much a part of the plutocracy as the NRA.  You may feel like your views were represented if his efforts lead to tougher gun control laws are successful, but it will be entirely a coincidence that your views on this issue just happened to align with those of enough plutocrats for the legislation to pass.

How about we see how things play out in 1888, then run Vance/Custer in 1892. Vance dies in 1894, so they each get two years as President.

Nah, there may be better options.  Like Weaver Smiley

Or Vance. Imagine President Zebulon Vance.

Let's see how '88 goes.  What about Weaver/Custer in '92.  I could get behind that and then switch to Bryan/Teller in '96.

I think we can all agree that we're going to have Bryan/Somebody in '96, and Teller seems pretty cool. How about the Whigs merge with the People's Alliance and Destiny parties in '92 so we can sort this all out democratically instead of having two candidates running on the left, a situation which has had negative results for us in the past four elections? I'm not a fan of Weaver, and you're not a fan of Custer, so we probably shouldn't go with that. Perhaps Vance/Bryan in '92, no matter what happens this go-around?

As Cath noted, Bryan would be unconstitutional in 1892 and I think we should check the options before settling on Vance for that year (obviously it doesn't have to be Weaver, but let's make sure there isn't a better option that year that folks can agree on), other than that I completely agree.

I'd be for Vance, but only under a united ticket.

Vance isn't an option if there's a merger.  He wasn't listed as one of the People's Alliance candidates Sad

That's too bad. If he is the Whig nominee though, won't we have a four-way race, since there's no merger?

The Radicals voted for a merger and the Destiny and People's Alliance parties voted for Custer, so it would be Vance vs. Custer. vs. Cleveland.  Another possibility is that since the Radicals voted for a merger and The People's Alliance lacks Whig participation, the People's Alliance doesn't run anyone and/or the Radicals disappear entirely.

That's besides the point.

I encourage everyone who supports the Whigs or Radicals to vote to merge so we don't have vote-splitting in the general election.

I urge fellow anti-Cleveland voters to reject the efforts of Custer/Smith supporters to hijack the Whig convention.  I realize they may share the same goal of defeating Cleveland, but the fact is that only Vance ideally with Senator Teller as his running-mate) has what it takes to defeat Cleveland and a merger would keep him from being nominated.  It is also quite surprising that those who blocked Weaver over his views on immigration would have us unite behind an eager participant in the Indian genocide.  I'd urge Whigs, Radicals, and members of the People's Alliance to support Vance!

How about we compromise with Custer/Vance?

Custer's a non-starter for me as President, plus you guys got your choice last time.  I suppose I could live with Vance/Custer although unless the other parties line up behind Vance, I'm sticking with Vance/Teller.

What's your problem with Custer, hero of the Common Man? Sad

His involvement in the Indian Wars Tongue 

And yet you'd probably support Theodore Roosevelt who fought in the apparently un-justified Spanish-American War.

No, actually I wouldn't.  TR was a major HP, not really sure why certain liberals like him given that he was never more than a pseudo-reformer.

Ah, you've reached the "Enlightened S(t)age". Good, good....

?

I'm just being an asshole. More to the point: I find left-wingers who gush over TR annoying, but I also find it annoying when they gush over Eugene Debs, so I'll just mindlessly make rude (or in this case, mis-interpreted or confusing) comments regarding either.

Ah, no worries.
