Well you might get a better reception to the poll if you put inexperienced socialist.

Not sure how many are going to jump for joy seeing black their.

Isn't there a Chinese proverb that says "If you have to pick between two evils, pick neither."..... Personally, I like the non-socialist part of Obama's plan and I like the non-nation building part of McCain's plain... so it comes down to which one I dislike more .... socialism versus nation-building... both equally evil... hard to pick between the two...

Those are common caricatures, not how I actually perceive them (you know, tongue in cheek and all). You can fill them out with your own subtext.

I think you need to revise your categories. Since you have right-wing warmonger you should have socialist appeaser. Infact a better title for Obama would be Black separatist socialist appeaser. Just my humble opinion of course.

interesting how you title these two candidates. why can't can't you just see obama an American, period? we all KNOW that he is black, so why do you label him as such?, if not to get a rise from others? btw, he is ALSO half white.

fizbin, its none of my business, but I think you might do well to delete this poll. I can see the tempers starting to fume already.

Lightbulb No "lesser" for me...

For the first time in quite awhile, I actually am enthused about a presidential candidate. I think the last time that happened was in 1980, when I felt really good about Reagan.

Not that I like Obama, but you should look up the definition of the word appeaser.

According to Princeton University's WordNet: "someone who tries to bring peace by acceding to demands"

So Bush was an appeaser by closing down a US base in Saudi Arabia?

If you go into a summit and compromise or command authority while meeting, you are not acceding to demands, therefore you are not an appeaser.

I like this definition better;

Quote:
To pacify or attempt to pacify (an enemy) by granting concessions, often at the expense of principle. See Synonyms at pacify.
