Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Democratic runner-up Franlin Finch also had a balance of 120 credits.  These will be transferred to whichever candidate he endorses.  If he hasn't endorsed either candidate by the time of the Democratic Convention, his credits will be canceled.

Welcome to the forum!  I'm afraid that, as a precautionary measure, I can only accept endorsements from posters who have attained at least 50 posts on the forum.  However, you're welcome to come back to issue your support once you've reached that goal.  Smiley

Hudson and Xiao prepare for battle!

- Spring is finally here, and after a long winter and two long presidential primaries, the nation is ready for the battle between giants, the 2012 Presidential election. The candidates are chosen, and everything is set for the election of a life time. With polls being tied, and lot’s of people being undecided, this year’s race is one of the most unpredictable ever seen. But who are the champions that will fight this battle? Why were they chosen to represent their party in this critical election?

- On the right we have 44-year-old Republican Governor Helen Hudson of Arkansas.

Back when Hudson at age 28 announced her intention to run for congress few believed that she’d be successful, and found themselves surprised when she not only managed to clench the her party’s nomination, but also pulled out a narrow victory over her Democratic opponent. Despite criticism from both Democrats and Republicans calling her a populist, Hudson’s popularity quickly grew among her constitutes, and six years after joining Congress Hudson found herself elected Governor of her state. Between raising her four children together with husband Parker Hudson, and becoming a national voice for Conservatism, Helen still had time to bring down unemployment and revolutionise the education system in her beloved home state. Her accomplishments earned her the name Mother Arkansas among voters, and when she announced her intentions to seek the Presidency, she instantly became one of the front runners.

Although Hudson was the winner of the Iowa primary, her road to victory was anything but straight. Several critics emerged to attack her, especially questioning her credentials as a fiscal conservative. Some even went so far as to call her a notorious spender. And even though Hudson maintained the upper hand throughout the entire primary battle, she had a strong opposition, especially in fellow Governor Pamela Pickering of Colorado, who several times looked as she might be able to win the party’s nomination. In the end however, Hudson’s lovable Southern personality and charisma, her experience as a successful and popular Governor, and her good and intelligent rhetoric and argumentation won the voters, and even Pickering had to yield.

- Hudson will however now face a more dangerous opponent. On the left we have Xander Xiao, the Senior Senator from California, who if elected would become the first person of Asian ancestry to be elected President of the United States.

Xiao has built himself a strong record, serving decades in the Congress, and being a strong advocate for liberal causes. Having no major legislation attached to his name however, a lot of critics have accused him of being much talk but little action, and labels him as a typical carer politician. When he throw his hat into the race for President, no one was surprised however, and as his long experience mixed with a charming smile and good charisma started gaining him endorsements and money, his opponents soon found themselves fearing him.

After winning Iowa, it looked like Xiao would have a nice walk in the park, and easily win the Democratic nomination for President. After important victories in the first four primaries, a lot of people started to consider the Democratic primary to be over already, and expected Xiao to sweep the nomination, winning every single state. But to everybody and their uncle’s surprise, Xiao found an unexpected but dangerous challenger in union leader Franklin Finch. Finch was in the start of the primary one of the least likely candidates to win, but soon became a rising dark horse, as he was able to create an alliance of bigots, union members, and populists. As candidates began to drop out from the Democratic primary, more and more of the anti-Xiao voters began uniting under the big umbrella that was Finch’s campaign, and Xander found his walk in the park turn into a never-ending gauntlet in Mordor instead. After a long chess match of tactics between the two candidates, Xander came out the winner, although somewhat bruised.

- Both candidates now have gotten through the first stage to becoming the most powerful person in the world. It is now the real game begins. One of these candidates will be our next president, so keep reading. We will follow this election very closely.

I imagine a string of campaigning down the road will be just as effective. Early campaigning doesn't necessarily achieve that much.

I trust Xahar knows what he is doing.

Its just been announced in Atlasia that Xahar is on hiatus, and Nik is in charge of the campaign there.  Who is running things for Xahar over here?
