I must admit the lack of experience on the part of Obama was the casting die in determining my endorsement Democratic and, indeed, presidential endorsement. In all honesty, however, it's difficult to conceive either Clinton or Obama, one of whom will be the 2008 Democratic nominee, as being as woeful a president George W Bush has been.

My ultimate concern with Obama boils down to this. Should he win the Democratic nomination and go on to win the presidency, it will, in no small part, boil down to high expectations. And should Obama fail to deliver on these expectations, then he could fall as quickly as he rose 4 years down the line

I understand where you're coming from, but you're assuming Hillary would win this first election Tongue

She definitely has a strong chance, yes, but with conservatives so strong in their hatred for her, they would show up to the voting booth in droves. This would also heavily affect lower-ballot races, especially in more conservative areas. I would not be suprised at all if Hillary causes many moderate and swing-state Democrats to lose reelection.

OK, anything that has dramatically changed things?

Why ask this question? How has Hillary, Edwards, Guiliani, Romney, Huckabee, any of them 'dramatically changed things'? You're holding Obama up to a higher standard for no reason at all.

What has Obama actually done in the Senate anyway?

From his wiki page:

Quote
As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, Obama co-sponsored the enactment of conventional weapons control and transparency legislation, and made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In the 110th Congress, he has sponsored legislation on lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel.

While we're on the subject, why was the guy being called Barack J Obama in 2004?
Typo, I guess? the H and J keys are right next to each other.

Oh, and, in this study, you can not be both a virgin and have had oral sex

lol, in that case, make it three of the five 'religious' homeschoolers I personally know that have had sex. Also, interestingly enough, the one that lost it at age 16 lost it on a church retreat.

What kind of idiotic church did he go to? Or was he molested?

It was a she, and it was a Southern Baptist Church. I don't remember exactly how it went, but it was done willingly for both parties, in secret, in the middle of the night.

Okay, we need to start calling Electoral Votes "Grand Electors" in English. It just sounds cooler.

11862  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Diebold favors Hillary, Hand counts favor Obama on: January 11, 2008, 01:23:58 pm
According to this thing, Diebold recorded about four times as many votes as a hand job did. Riiiiiight.

its based of off precincts which use Diebold and precincts which use hand counts; I'm assuming there were something like four times as many precincts using Diebold as hand counts.

Probably not, once the data is adjusted for the religious beliefs of the parents.

Also, from personal experience, I know five 'Christian' homeschoolers, two of whom have had premarital sex, and two 'non-Christian' homeschoolers, one of whom has had sex (the other is asexual).

Not to mention that it's not usually a good idea to extrapolate from a sample of "5". Especially not your friends from a liberal university.

I'm not extrapolating my opinion based on those five, just citing them as they are personal examples of what you're talking about.

The two religious home-schoolers lost their virginity at 16 and 17; the non-religious homeschooler lost his at 18.

Can Diebold votes actually be recounted?
11865  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who would you rather have as your State Rep.? on: January 10, 2008, 09:20:21 pm
I'd love C, and actively campaign for them at election time. I wouldn't mind E, D, or B, with my preference in that order, though pretty close. I think F would be an alright congressperson, if only for the lulz. If I was in A's district, I'd do whatever I could to get him/her out of office.

My optimism says Obama. My pessimism says Clinton. My realism says it's too soon to tell since anything can happen.

If Richardson endorses Obama, it will probably go Obama.

If Richardson makes no endorsement, but Edwards has dropped out by then, it will be a tossup.

If Richardson makes no endorsement and Edwards hasn't dropped out, it will be a lean-Hillary race.

If Richardson endorses Hillary, it will go Hillary.

eraser/bullmoose, though riceowl/hugh is a very appealing ticket as well.

She's my type, very bubbly and smart.  She's one of the few women I can imagine myself marrying.  We'd make sweet love and then we'd discuss the demographics of New Mexico.  Plus, being a history buff there'd be something really cool about the whole thing.  People would be talking about Herbert Hoover, and then I'd be able to brag that I did his great-granddaughter.  Yeah.  I know PBrunsel is jealous.
