I don't perceive Clinton as a Southerner, and I doubt anyone else in the south will either, so she probably has just as much chance as anyone else.

Yes the Patriot Act and the NSA PRISM project will be issues in both primaries, but it is quite probable that both candidates will be for re-authorization so it wont be an issue in the general.

The media will see to it that both nominees support it.

And by that you mean "Rand Paul won't be nominated". (or any of the other 48 senators who voted against it)

Christie and Rand would be the worst ticket in terms of chemistry since LBJ and Kennedy. At the same time, I would vote for Christie/Rand in a heartbeat.

The infamous Patriot act is set to expire in 2015, and Obama's failed promise to let it expire in 2008 can be used as an attack on him. If he renews it in 2015, (which is possible, but the government NEVER shrinks) that could also be an attack matter.

Or, if the Patriot act renewal in 2015 fails somehow, (Most of the Senators/Congressmen in favor of the extension were Republicans) the Republican may come in favor of re-instating it.

Any thoughts?

As I believe Cathcon said in my poll on Vito Marcantonio, communist tool.  HP.

Eugene Debs wasn't a communist.
No, but he was a socialist, which is communism's next-door neighbor.  After all, the only major difference is communism is authoritarian and socialism is democratic.
But it's true.

So about Oldiesfreak being big on anti-racism...

I voted HP by mistake, because I thought you meant Congressman John Lewis.
I don't opppse him because he's black, I oppose him because he's a Democrat.

So you're going to disregard all the work he did for the civil rights movement and at SNCC for 25 years of service in Congress on your opposing team?

You're a joke. I honestly hadn't think I'd find an incident with a Republican that I'd be disgusted in more than when Krazen used the bombings on my city as political fodder, but somehow I have. Sure, I absolutely hate facing Mariano Rivera when my boys are facing the Yankees, but off the field, he's arguably the classiest player of all-time, and I'm sad to see him retire. He's against the people I root for, but I can still like him as a person. The fact that you don't proves incidents like Wallacegate's not about race. You just want to score political points.
No; I have much respect for the work he did for the civil rights movement, but considering that, it's amazing that he belongs to a party that included most of the opponents of the civil rights movement.  And he also compared John McCain and Sarah Palin to George Wallace (who was, of course, a Democrat) during the 2008 campaign: http://www.politico.com/blogs/jonathanmartin/1008/John_Lewis_invoking_George_Wallace_says_McCain_and_Palin_playing_with_fire.html

Perhaps someone who was a leader of the civil rights movement understands the actual history of the civil rights movement better than some 19 year old kid reading things on the internet.
Believe me, I've read plenty of history in textbooks (even left-wing ones), and I think I have a pretty good grasp of the history of the civil rights movement.
So by that logic, since I've read a bunch of books on child soldiers in Africa, I am now an expert. To hell with college then, I'm going to the United Nations. Thanks, Oldiesfreak!
No, I don't mean just plain old books, I mean textbooks, written by experts in the field.  Even the most anti-Republican scholars have at least admitted to the Democrats' racism in the 19th century, even if they refuse to acknowledge it during the 20th.

Because the Democrats stopped being the racist party in the mid-to-late 1960s, think skull. They should admitted the early 20th century racism too, as the KKK endorsed Hoover.

Anything less than "gay marriage is now legal everywhere" is Plessy part 2. I think the justices realize this.

How is that so?

Does the Supreme Court have to rule on these 4 or can they put them off until the next secession?
