I look at all four of them and want to yell, "DO OVER!"

You talk like running this country is s hard job that takes highly intelligent and articulate people to perform ...here's a couple of names to counter that notion....Bill Clinton and George W Bush!

Ain't that the truth! If this is the best the country has to offer we're all in trouble.

I agree.

I once heard Lewis Black say, "Every election, I think to myself: It can't possibly get any worse than this. And it does."

Well said.

He even maintained his respectful attitude toward McCain while pointing out their differences.
Great post, elston, and so true. Rep points for you...

Elston you wrote a wonderful post. I'd rep you if I could my friend. I just don't like McCain, I'm sorry. I think he's an angry little man that would cut anyones throat. His temper is historical. Palin is a pretty woman, that and her personal beliefs will garner her points on the fundamental front. Vice President of the P.T.A.? Yes. She's the one candidate (of the four in this POTUS race) that I'd like to have lunch with. She's got personality, and I have no issue with people of differant views than my own, but she's a Caribou Barbie.

If Biden is so good why has he never won the endorsement from his party for President? Maybe they know he's not presidential material. I don't like Obama. He's a Junior Senator with no practical experience on anything. He will tax the crap out of us to support his leftist liberal welfare state agenda and we will see four years not unlike the Jimmy Carter years of gas lines, 18% interest on home mortgages (if they are available at all) and inflation through the roof.
If you think things are bad now just wait until Obama is elected...Plant a garden and learn to can food...

Well, if he'd gotten up there in the debate, after 35 years in the Senate, and NOT have been polished and calm and full of "DC-speak" then something definitely would've been wrong. Anybody with 35 years on Capital Hill is going to make Palin look like a girl scout. She's from Alaska, for heaven's sake. But she's young, energetic, enthusiastic, and refreshing! When she grows up a bit, she will be a real asset to this country. She's not going to come across like Biden right now. But you know what? I wouldn't want her to!

This election is between Tweedledum and Tweedledumber. Flip a coin. Either way, we all lose. I wondered why we couldn't have gotten better nominees this time to run. Heaven knows, we need a real leader this time around. But then I asked myself, "Who would want to be stepping into the mess we're in right now?"

This financial disaster will continue regardless of who wins. And whoever wins will lose, because he'll get blamed for it all. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy...

I think the reason Obama will win is that those of us who support him are very enthusiastic. I am excited to have the oppurtunity to be part of this historic election. From what I hear most of the Republicans are reluctantly voting for McCain as the least bad.

I feel Senator Obama is a unique and a once in a generation type of leader. His leadership transends the usual resume of compromising experiences, endurance and past failures; it derives from his vision, his inteligence, his communication skills, his capacity to empathize with the average citizen. He is an inspirational leader. JFK was such a leader, Lincoln was such a leader.....and to some degree Regean must have had some of that.....I didn't see it but he was beloved.

Biden is the perfect balance for Obama. He is as practical as Obama is inspired. They make a good team.

Can anyone in Maine or elsewhere say they are better off now than they were 8 years ago? Here on the maine thread we are already being encouraged to garden and put food by...based on the Bush economy! I am proud and happy to have the chance to vote for change to vote for a real leader.
