None of these candidates really appeal to me at all. Sad I guess with these two tickets, I'd pick Xahar/Ben.
11902  General Discussion / Alternative History / Jeb Bush in 1994 on: January 09, 2008, 08:05:17 pm
In 1994, Jeb Bush is successfully elected governor of Florida. How does history change? Will he run for president in 2000 instead of his brother? Discuss.

Considering the only other actual candidate on the ballot is Gravel, I think, It'd be a defeat for her if she gets less than like 90%.

Any word on an endorsement? If I were in his shoes, I'd stay quiet so I could get a position in either a Hillary or an Obama administration.

If the media gives it any significance, then their bias would be completely obvious.

fezzy/flynn.

also guys, don't vote until five posts after you voted last time, so you can't potentially vote for yourself.

yeah, probably. he's livelier than Thompson.

I think if he were to drop out and endorse someone before SuperDuper Tuesday, he could determine how the election would go. However, his support at the convention itself wouldn't be very relevent.
11909  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which of the following do you support? (Civil Liberties) on: January 09, 2008, 12:10:40 pm
nine is fine, if they aren't government funded.

Lol, I'm keeping my Senate seat, and I'm pretty sure you won't beat Senator Spade.
11911  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: How and why did Barack Obama lose tonight? on: January 09, 2008, 07:28:41 am
McCain took some indies away from Obama, and Hillary took women away from him with the tear thing. In addition, the drop wasn't so drastic; he was probably overpolling due to the Bradley effect.
11912  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: New Hampshire Democratic Primary Results on: January 08, 2008, 10:48:22 pm
Good call, JJ.

Looking at the results, as well as the exit polls, I think really what gave Hillary the edge was the whole tear thing. I'd imagine that really helped in give her the lead for the women voters.
11913  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: New Hampshire Democratic Primary Results on: January 08, 2008, 09:14:33 pm
Well this is looking like it's gonna be quite off from the polling. Bradley effect?
11914  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: New Hampshire Democratic Primary Results on: January 08, 2008, 07:18:07 pm
Anyone know when we'll see some results?
11915  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Four years ago today... on: January 08, 2008, 07:05:47 pm
The argument wasn't that world leaders would have a higher opinion of him, it was that his background would help him better deal with the realm of foreign relations. See Lewis's post.

Though I don't know what forumite said that, and really, it's irrelevant. What is relevant is that Obama's ''weak points'' don't matter, especially when you look at past presidents.

Colin/benconstine

And lulz at the next person, for having to pick between a ticket led by a 14 year old liberal Democrat and a 13 year old liberal Democrat. Now that's variety.

Pope Leo, he's been in the Senate for 2 years.  The last year of which he's been campaigning for President and the first year he was learning the ropes.  How many foreign trips do you really think he's taken?

Two? What? He's been in there for going on four years, in which time he's sponsored a significant amount of succesful legislation. And before that, he was in the IL Senate for eight, in which time he successfully passed several hundred bills. Sounds like experience, no? More elected experience than Hillary, at any rate.

But onto the topic of foreign policy experience, he's gone on three official foreign trips abroad in his status as a United States senator, visiting fourteen countries; in addition, he's also visited his family in Kenya as a personal trip. And he's the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on Europe, you know. That's significantly more foreign policy experience than either Reagan or Clinton upon their election to the presidency. What foriegn experience did they have?

Afghanistan has a functioning Democracy.

If by functioning democracy you mean nearly complete anarchy outside of Kabul, you would be correct.

North Korea has dismantled their nuclear facilities thanks to multinational talks.

See? Talking works. Not hardheaded, ignorant invasions.

Iraq will turn around. Those who said it would be quick and easy were wrong. No wars are. The Bush doctrine has not been a total failure.

Except that the Bush doctrine, in regards to Iraq, was basically, "Go in, kick their asses and be done with it."

But I know I can't convince you of that no matter what I say.

Well, true, but the same applies to me, you and pretty much everyone.

Fornication Illegalisation Initiative

1. The abnormal practice of fornication is hereby made illegal in the Southeast Region. "Fornication" refers to any form of sexual penetration or sexual touching among partners not joined in a civil union.

2. The penalty for such an action may range from a $5000 fine to 1 year imprisonment.


lol, no.

Look, seriously, I wouldn't be trying to sweet talk the court if I were you. You're already on thin ice and begging to make your situation worse. Do you want the death penalty? If I were in your shoes, I'd be begging gporter for his forgiveness before he decides to really press for your execution. Trust me, he has the sway in Atlasia to make it happen.

11924  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Is it wrong for me to think calling Hillary dead is premature? on: January 07, 2008, 10:27:47 pm
Clinton is far from dead, yes; she still has plenty of money and is still a pretty serious threat. She still has a slight chance at NH, and even failing that it's possible (though i hope unlikely) she could rebound on mega tuesday.
11925  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Decriminalization of LSD Bill on: January 07, 2008, 09:20:05 pm
