She did a lot of good work but it wasn't by any means unsullied and the idea that there was anything particularly special about it or her is dubious and overinflated in the popular imagination. She almost certainly did not deserve a Nobel Peace Prize.

I have to say, I'm kind of surprised that's the attitude you'd have toward her.  That's not to say I think she was flawless, but Mother Teresa always seemed, to me, like one of those figures that most people - Christians, certainly - would admire in spite of her faults, and yes, there were some big ones.

That being said, I voted FF on balance.  I obviously don't agree at all with her "methods," but, as has been stated, she operated according to her religious beliefs and offered her help to anyone who wanted it.  She never insisted that her way was "the only way."

That, more or less.

If FitzGerald isn't raising money it's HIS fault. You're not supporting Wolf because the guy is going to win in a landslide the same night FitzGerald loses by a decent margin. People call it envy.

Snyder is a union-busting thug, while Dayton actually signed off on an expansion of collective bargaining rights.

That means HP and FF for me. Did you vote FF on Dayton, TNF? Just curious.

11  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Adam C. FitzGerald vs. Brian Schweitzer on: June 10, 2014, 04:30:50 pm
So now Schweitzer is a traitor because he didn't want to run for Senate. OK then. In the same way Steve Beshear, Sam Nunn, Jim Hood, Jay Rockefeller, Carl Levin and Ben Nelson are for not running, when they should have (against their criteria) just to help a party they've been helping for years.

The real traitor here is Ed Fitzgerald. He's no better than Alvin Greene. He's looks like a republican plant to make sure KaSick wins reelection. Jon Portune could have made the race competitive... Even Kucinich would stand a better chance than Fitzgerald. James Traficant looks good if compared with that irrelevant man FitzGerald.

Life in prison without even the chance of parole is wrong.

I agree. But it's better than death penalty. Waaay better.

Election night, November 6, 2018 100% reporting:

Statewide election results
United States Senator
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-inc)-98%
Former Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D)-2%

Governor: 
Former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro (D)-1%
Governor Dan Patrick (R)-99%

*Problems with voting machines in Harris County and Dallas County solved. Patrick forced people there and everywhere to vote for him. Only a bunch of communist Mexicans voted for Castro, and most of them by error.

Lieutenant Governor-Open
Former State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth)-5%
Comptroller Glenn Hegar (R)-95%

State Attorney General
State AG Ken Paxton (R-inc.,)-99%
Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D)-1%

Comptroller of Public Accounts-Open
Former Houston City Controller Ron Green (D)-3%
Former Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples (R)-97%

Commissioner of the General Land Office
Land Commissioner George P. Bush (R-inc.,)-100%
Former Dallas Mayor Laura Miller (D)-0%

Commissioner of Agriculture
Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller (R)-97%
Former El Paso Mayor John Cook (D)-3%

Railroad Commissioner, Place 3
Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick (R-inc.,)-4%
Former U.S. Rep. Chris Bell (D-TX)-96%

In this race Texans voted for the democrat because Patrick told them to vote for "Christ" and they thought they had to vote for "Chris" and not "Christi".

Patrick escapes from prison and decides to invade Canada by manipulating Stephen Harper. Now, Patrick is Canada PM. Queen Elizabeth II is more or less angry with Patrick attitude and decisions and threatens him with not visiting Canada if he doesn't step down as PM. Patrick, as wise as he is, realizes Queen Elizabeth is too old to travel to Canada anyway, so he decides to continue as Prime Minister.

One day after the incident with the Queen, he realizes that not only she's too old to travel, but too old to govern. With his manipulating skills, he convinces Prince Charles to start a succession war against his mother with the support of Canada. Dictator Julian Castro is supporting Queen Eizabeth but Patrick wins because he is so sage and then convinces two members of the House of Lords to kill King Charles and the entire royal family.

Patrick is now the King after manipulating every member of the Commons and the Lords with the help of Nick Clegg. King Patrick I is now a British nationalist and hates France, After trying to manipulate François Hollande with the help of Jean-Louis Borloo he realizes it's better to destroy the country because "France is full of communists".

October 18th. Dan Patrick manipulates Senator Bernie Sanders so that he kills President Tom Cotton.

October 19th. VP Dan Patrick becomes President minutes after Tom Cotton's found dead in the Senate. He had promised Sanders that he'd become VP, but changes his mind and orders the FBI to arrest him. David Duke is sworn in as VP. The moderate GOP senators threaten Patrick with voting "no" on his budget if he keeeps eliminating people, but patrick manages to manipulate them.

OOC: Well I guess I'll point out that 1) NYE left this game and IMO has no right to come back and decide how Clinton endorses. Had I left the game as Biden without endorsing I would not come back and do this. And 2) Clinton said she would endorse after a clear delegate lead was established; we have actually become closer in delegates since then. I haven't decided how I'll respond as Biden.
I must concur with badgate. It's kinda unfair to leave the game and then come back and all but totally decide the Democratic Nominee.

Same here. I like how NHI is doing this (congratulations, BTW!) but his last decision was really, really unfair.

And I think the race was waaaay more interesting without NYE in the mix and with Biden and Edwards in a close fight in every state. I know the main purpose of each one of you is winning the game, but think about having fun, too. I doubt SJoyce (as Edwards) will enjoy any other "battle" as much as this one, and it was keeping the game "active"... Believe me, once it's Edwards vs. Giuliani, the game will be more humdrum, at least until September-October (game time).
That depends who the Vice-Presidential nominees are, IMO. An Edwards/Biden ticket would be formidable for Democrats IMO.

You have no right to come back here after you said you'd leave forever. Badgate and SJoyce made those detailed posts thinking the race would be a toss-up forever, and the only thing that could give them an advantadge over the other was better, more detailed campaign. I'm sure they wouldn't have put the same effort if they knew Clinton would endorse one of them. I hope NNHI and SJoyce keep that in mind, rejecting your endorsement.
