by citing facts? go back to school. when candidates get in trouble with the law and other ones drop out, that is a default. he wasn't popular until the voters were given the choice of the unknown. reading is fundamental.

Exactly my point. Your only purpose here is to annoy and you don't even like any of the candidates (by your own testament). Your mission is to simply troll, post hasty generalizations, and post general discontent for politicians 'over the last 100 years' (yet you show a particular disdain for Obama despite your alleged neutrality). Playful rhetoric is your scope.

Honestly, I don't mind as I find you amusing but let's call a spade a spade shall we.

Please list all of the actions of Cheney, that you consider "proves" that a VP can be a serious contender.

If your going to post on CD.. Please attempt to have some facts to back anything up... Without them, your just another left wing kook who needs psychological help for dilusions.

You need to start to preface your postings with.

Warning: I am a left wing kook who has no problem at all just posting something that I heard, from some other kook. I have no problem with posting data that has proven to be false, as long as it makes me feel better. Other left wing kooks can feel free to respond to my postings, but if you have facts to dispute my postings, please dont bother because facts dont matter. They hurt my feelings.

So what if he doesnt like any of the current candidates, does that mean he lower his standards to meet your expectations of a "pretty" candidate?

Are you as angry with your Democratic Congressmen and Senators who also authorized the war? They have just as much responsibility. Remember, the only reason Obama didn't vote for the war was he wasn't in the Senate yet.

I agree that Obama would have voted for the war also if he was facing military personnel, Colin Powell and countless others feeding them this crap for days and days. Why everyone let Obama get by with this constant remark about how he was against the war and he wasn't even in the Senate is beyond me. Yet another example of how the media was slack when it came to Obama and so hard on Hillary.

if I was a troll, I would live under a bridge. I do have a stronger dislike for obama for one reason, that reason is that I can't find people who are coo coo for mccain. no one here seems to think that mccain is some sort of messiah.

NO. We don't remember. However, if you provide proof to substantiate this claim I'm certain we could all join in your assertion. What we do have is proof of his activities and well documented statements, while serving in public office, regarding his stance on the War. Upon further review of these documents it is difficult for anyone to assert that based on the statements and the mood at the time, there was not considerable risk to his future political career for taking the stance that he did. What is particularly telling is that his Democrat & Republican peers have recognized his move as courageous.
