Well, I guess that may give those Conservatives that don't like McCain a place to vote - not sure if they actually will though.

It may make things interesting.
We'll have to see.

I believe the Libertarian party still needs to nominate a candidate. Would be interesting if Barr is Libertarian candidate and Clinton the Democratic candidate. Remember Barr was one of the major Clinton haters during the impeachment process. If he and Hillary make it look out. He was house manager for the impeachment process. I wonder how the super delegates will view this possibility?

America's made such progress in such a short period of time. With Bob Barr announcing his White House bid, I'm proud to say that there are now two men of African descent running for the presidency.

I think that's awesome.

Hmmm....interesting. Bob Barr does have an uncanny resemblance to Jeremiah Wright. I'd like to post photos of Barr and Wright here for your inspection, but I don't know how that's done.

Alan Keyes has more delegates than Giuliani.

I had never heard about this guy, but after reading about his voting record, I drew the conclusion that he's more a ultra-right militia supporter than a Libertarian. Plus, he's worked as a lawyer for a KKK member

This is encouraging. People will say that Barr and the Libertarians don't stand a chance of winning, but I am of the mind of voting for those who you agree with most on m,any, not all, but many issues regardless of party. This is why I am an Independent. I don't want to be tied to any particular party or candidate. I will look closely at Barr's stances on issues and make a decision whether to support him. I am leaning to Obama now, but who knows. I want to keep my options open. I hope this, along with Ron Paul's efforts to rouse the GOP convention, puts a scare into the Republicans that has been long in coming and gives them and their supporters a taste of what it's like to isolate your conservative base. This will be a very interesting election year.
