In other words, you're fine with voting in a complete buffoon because new is preferable to experience.

The Neo Con right is dead...all it needs to do it rot away, it had done more damage then good...Compromising with bad ideas is a very very bad idea..

I totally agree. We need candidates with some experience, but not old hat ones, who have been around for 25 or more years.

No, that would be your words. HC and others have more than worn out their welcome, and the entire crop of political leaders are blatantly more concerned about giving lip service over making the tough decisions, so obviously the only other possibility is a buffoon.

We have seen where "experienced" politicians take us, and it isn't working out very well.

On the large scale it is dead, in representative districts and perhaps in say Texas and even Arizona, the Neo Con right will live on. We will NEVER see a Neo Con right presidential candidate.

This country needs a middle class business man, a blue collar worker. Then the field should be level for both parties.

Wanna wager how RELIGIOUS/CHRISTIAN,or how OLD their next candidate will be?
When have the republicans ran a religious old person? McCain? Old but far from evangelical. Extremely moderate to boot, and to not vote for him because of Palin, yet voting for Obama in spite of Biden, is just plain hypocritical.
Romney? Perhaps even more moderate than McCain. Although people liked to obsess over his Mormonism, he rarely if ever focused on it, instead tried to campaign on things that actually mattered, unlike Obama&Co.

Bush? Moderate. Very much so.
Dole? Moderate but old just like Hillary.
Elder Bush? Moderate.
Reagan? Old but moderate.

Oh, the primaries you say? HA! Dems have no room to be talking about who's in those. That's why we have primaries: to hopefully weed that out.

I don't think you understand the duties of the President or what it takes to be a decent one. NO, a blue collar worker would not have the background nor the knowledge to be a successful President. It takes leadership, if nothing else, how many blue collar workers do you know with leadership experience? Can I also add, a business man and a blue collar worker are 2 very different individuals.

so you are saying what? People who are religious are automatically Christian? Or are you suggesting only one side selects Christians as their candidate? Are you telling us, you don't believe Obama is a Christian and what about Carter? When it comes to age: I think, looking at the names being passed around, the Dems look like they will have a lock on that in 2016.
