Obama.

I like Edwards too but I'm not sure he has a shot at this point.

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

The likely winner -Hillary Clinton.

Barack Obama undoubtably has a bright future ahead of him, but winning the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008 is not likely to be a part of that.  I could be wrong, of course, but I fully expect Hillary Clinton to be our nominee by this time next year.

One of what?

But I'll definitely support the Dem nominee in the general no matter who it is.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

I doubt I'll vote for Clinton in the general.

1. Chris Dodd (Carbon tax warms my heart; cools the planet)

2. Joe Biden (Yes, he's grandiloquent, but can't the same be said of the other 99 Senators?)

3. John Edwards (The Horatio Alger of the Democratic Presidential field: Did I mention he's the son of a mill worker? Seriously, his substantive stands on the issues deserve more attention from the media).

4. Barack Obama (Is it too audacious to hope that he can beat Hillary?)

5. Bill Richardson (A Southwestern Latino with foreign policy and executive experience, sounds perfect on paper. Alas, Richardson's frequent gaffes have overshadowed his impressive credentials, proving once again that elections aren't won in one dimension.)

6. Hillary Clinton (Her health care plan was a carefully devised attempt to solve a problem to irrevocably tied to her political legacy. No points for creativity: Her plan is nearly identical to that of her two top rivals.)

7. Dennis Kucinich (He's now being challenged by the  Mayor of Parma, the ninth most populated city in Ohio, and faces vocal opposition from the patron saint of the Democratic netroots, Paul Hackett. Time for this itinerant soul to head back home!).

8. Mike Gravel (I'll never forgive you for defeating the father of modern-day Alaska and one of the two Senators to oppose the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, Ernest Gruening.)

One of the problems I'm having with deciding who to support is that some of the candidates who have the most to offer are the same ones who seem to have little, if any, chance to win the nomination. I could still support one of them, but what's the use? By the time I get to vote in my state's primary, they'll all be out of the race in all probability. It points to the fact that the selection process is terrible, and getting worse all the time... a classic case of how the indiscriminate, unthinking use of "democratic" process actually makes things less democratic. I mean, look at Biden: he has tons of experience and probably more policy knowledge than anyone else in the race. He's also the only one who has any ideas about Iraq that are concrete and sensible enough to call a "plan." Sure, he has flaws too, but no worse than some of the other candidates. But it doesn't look as if he has a chance in hell. The same goes for Richardson and Dodd: they are both highly qualified, serious candidates who deserve a lot more consideration, but they've been relegated to the back bench along with the risible likes of Gravel and Kucinich. Dodd, Biden, and Richardson probably each have more political and governmental experience than the top three candidates put together. But Clinton has a name, Edwards has bucks, and Obama has "charisma" (or so I'm told; I've seen little evidence of it myself). So it's going to be one of those three, each of whom leaves me cold.

At least I can console myself with the fact that the situation isn't any better for the Republicans. Of their three front-runners, one has never held statewide or national elective office, and the other two have a grand total of one term as governor of a mid-sized state and one term in the Senate during which he distinguished himself for nothing besides lazy work habits.

...anyone who says our society must force people to expose themselves to those of the opposite sexual orientation, is not decent.

So you mean if we force the gay to be exposed to the straight, we are treating the gay indecently?  Because you didn't specify which direction the hate was supposed to go there, Black Beans.
