I'd have voted for Goodell. Anti-Vietnam war and an all around great Republican.

That said, I also admire James Buckley a good deal, who is quite moderate in comparison to the movement Republicans of today.

Buckley, of course. One of the best Senators to come out of that state (of course). Would've been nice if he'd become a presidential contender.

I'm a conservative, but probably Goodell.  I would have been inclined to vote for Buckley, especially because I admire Bill Buckley so much, but I would not have trusted him to support civil rights.

I would vote Goodell, but his son is the most hated man down here in Louisiana.

Thus, I'll go with Ottinger.

It was inexcusable what he did to the Saints.

I looked this up and I wasn't aware that the NFL Commissioner was named Roger Goodell. That explains it.

Well, Buckley actually won the election, so I don't think you would have to worry about voting for Ottinger. Tongue

It depends. I guess if the Vietnam war was the main issue I voted on, and I didn't pay too much attention to the fact that he was polling 3rd place, I might actually have voted for the Republican here.

The American Left prefers the lightweight. The American Right prefers the deadweight. Nothing to see here.

We have by county results of that race on the atlas. Cheesy

Is Roger Goodell really Charles Goodell's son?  I love football and I love the Saints but I believe that what they did was totally unacceptable.  Didn't Roger Goodell punish them for it?  If so, then I think he's the one who's in the right, not the Saints fans who want to win at any cost.  Football is my favorite sport and the Saints are one of my favorite teams (behind the Cowboys and Lions), but it's just a game and should be used to strengthen the character of the players, not weaken it.
