At this point, I think a pro-war candidate is unelectable.

The muslim thing will hurt.  My GF's mom sent me a chain letter the other day that claims islamic jihadist have been grooming Obama for a Presidential run for years.  And no, she's not a wingnut, she usually votes D.

Matter of fact, I'll try to dig it up.

Was it this one?: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/muslim.asp

Bill Clinton often seems to be something like a rock star here in Germany.

Of course, his image is quite idealized and romanticized... I guess mainly because of the underachiever who succeeded Clinton. Tongue

But all in all, the United States was indeed seen as a much more benevolant (or at least less malevolent, depends on who you ask) power during the Clinton administration.

But Dean wasn't the favorite in January 2003. I don't really remember it very well, but if anyone had the upper hand at the beginning of the campaign, it was either Kerry, Gephardt, or Lieberman.

Lieberman, I think.

Joe Lieberman 19%
John Kerry 17%
Dick Gephardt 13%

What a pity it's over now... German politics hasn't been so entertaining for quite a while. Cheesy  Well, at least we still have the battle between Huber and Seehofer over the CSU chairmanship to look forward to.

Oh, and in Wiesbaden, where there's a mayoral election in march, the SPD somehow managed to ignore the filing deadline. Grin

I'm still curious what the Green candidate's result will be. Wink

4572  General Discussion / History / Historical ranking of George W. Bush on: January 11, 2007, 11:46:50 am
Wikipedia maintains the following historical ranking of U.S. presidents "by average scholar rank":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_United_States_Presidents#Presidents_by_average_scholar_rank


Currently, George W. Bush ranks as the 22nd-best President of the United States. In relation to the presidents from the latter half of the 20th century the situation looks like this:

7) Truman

9) Eisenhower

12) Kennedy

14) Johnson

15) Reagan

21) Clinton

22) Bush Jr.

25) Bush Sr.

27) Ford (tied with Carter)

27) Carter (tied with Ford)

32) Nixon


Considering everything George W. Bush has done or not done from January 20, 2001 up until now is his place in the ranks too high, too low or about right?
4573  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Did you ever believe Iraq had WMDs in 2002? on: January 11, 2007, 06:42:10 am
Back then, I really had no idea whether Iraq still maintained a WMD program or not. That said, I waited for substantial proof that the Iraq had WMDs. This proof never materialized for me. What the Bush Administration labeled as "proof" for WMDs in 2002 wasn't exactly proof, but merely a joke. That was my opinion back then and it is my opinion today.
