Sorry

Sorry if these questions seem stupid, but I'm still learning!


What time will the results be out?

What about exit polls?

Cheers

I think this is the most logical reason for the UK not joining:

I don't want to join the Euro because my keyboard doesn't have a Euro button, which would be annoying if I had to use insert/alt to put it in!

Edwards - 30
Clinton - 28
Obama - 28
157  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Elizabeth Edwards on: December 31, 2007, 06:51:14 am


Say John Edwards wins the nomination and is campaigning for the general when his wife's illness becomes serious.

Does he continue campaigning?

What happens if she dies?

How does it affect the election?

As a side point:

In US the police say "Stop or I'll shoot"
In Europe the police say "Stop or I'll say stop again!"

To answer your question...because it is safer

Doh!

How stupid of me to find the wrong data.

Cheers!

Yes but if you throw a TV in a pool is the pool killing you?

I agree about that if you want to murder you'll find a way but giving someone a gun hardly helps!

Just adding some stats to the arguement
 

murder rate in 2000s  per 100,000 people
US 5.9
Iran 2.93
European Union 2.37
United Kingdom 2.03
Canada 2.01
France 1.64
England,  Wales 1.62
New Zealand 1.29
 Australia 1.28


I think that says it all...

About the swimming pool/gun arguement:

Drowning in a swimming pool is an accident, being shot is purposeful...
163  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: The 2008 Elections from a European point of view on: December 08, 2007, 03:22:29 pm


What I was meaning was that it was settled law, whilst in the US it isn't, it's divisive.

In the US voters will look at the abortion views of the candidate whilst in UK they wouldn't!
164  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: The 2008 Elections from a European point of view on: December 08, 2007, 02:16:17 pm

I'm unsure why you'd vote labour?

They are pro abortion, pro gay rights, pro benefits, pro universal healthcare, pro high tax,
(and unfortunately pro war).

Can you explain?
165  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: The 2008 Elections from a European point of view on: December 08, 2007, 09:36:53 am

On a political show called "Question Time" in the UK, the conservative MP on the show said that if he lived in America he would be a democrat!

I believe that, generally, Europe is far more liberal/left that the US and I think that is a good thing!

Gay marriage/abortion etc  are already implemented and are non-issues in many places!
166  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Biden won't serve as secretary of state on: December 02, 2007, 08:16:48 am


If Biden accepted the SoS position.
Would Castle run for the senate? Would he win? Would the dems risk losing a safe seat?

167  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: December Poll: Republicans on: December 02, 2007, 08:13:12 am


Rudy Guiliani.

Although I don't know if he can win the general election
168  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: CNN Debate? on: December 02, 2007, 08:12:19 am

I watched the debate on youtube, it has it ordered by questions.
169  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: December Poll: Democrats on: December 02, 2007, 08:11:34 am

I'd love it if Kucinich would win, he is a true progressive liberal, however, as he has no chance of winning either the nomination or, more importantly, the general election, I'd vote Clinton as I believe she can win the general election.

I think sometimes, you have to look at who can win the general election and not who may be the best.
170  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: The DNC has officially stripped MI of its delegates. on: December 02, 2007, 08:08:23 am

If I was a Michigan democrat, I'd have to consider not voting for them.
I'd say "It's my party too"

I think  this could hurt the dems in most elections, however, in 2008, I still believe they win the election.

Did the Republicans do something similar in Michigan?

Cheers

Does anyone know where I can download/watch the debate.
I don't have CNN!

Thanks

If the VP is Evan Bayh, can the dems win Indiana?

Why did West Virginia flip in 2000?
Do you see ti returning to the Dems in '08?
Cheers
