Welcome aboard Al! Now you're a right wing warmongering DINO lover too! Cheesy

Given that he supported the invasion of Iraq, he already was. Wink

In terms of scenario selection, 2004. They were not as fun to play as they would have been on later versions, but they included almost presidential elections as well as many senate and gubernatorial elections, non-US elections, hypothetical scenarios, future scenarios (some of which, of course, are now historical scenarios) and fictional scenarios.

In terms of playability, 2008 for sure. 2012/2016/Infinity would be if not for the confusing layout. 

There was also a now-obscure 2000 version (titled "President 2000" IIRC) that had cartoon default pictures of Gore and Bush.

I find it much easier to be open with people of my generation than of older generations. For instance, last Saturday I attended a get-together with my parents, family and their friends. I was asked twice (both of these people were around the age of 50) if I had a girlfriend yet. I shook my head or uttered a quick "no". Maybe acting stereotypical (which I don't and am generally not a fan of such a concept) is useful in this regard - it vastly reduces the chances of such awkwardness.

As for my generation, my most recent coming out (there have been several) was to the dozen or so of my roommates all at once a few months ago. The reaction I got was a round of applause. Compare that to the reaction of my mother (there is a thread on it somewhere), who was like "No, no, I don't want you to be like that" and my dad who has just been largely apathetic about it.

So this seems to be a new fad that has come about for this cycle - an 'announcement of consideration'.

I'll go with the man of the people - Corzine.

Moderate Hero and a likely sociopath, so HP. Still better than Coakley though.

The faux moderate Republican as opposed to the faux progressive Democrat.

An overrated asshole. Good on the foreign policy front, disaster on the domestic front.

Ideologically Foot, practically Smith. Hague, as Tory right-wingers go, is a good fellow though.

Like Arnold Vinick, Kerry made a wise decision in ending his career in the State department.
