In a desperate attempt to bring politics back to the P&OC forum, I'm going to pose this question which has been on my mind for the last few weeks.

Let's say that the term limit for a president was 3, and not 2. Hillary Clinton is now running against the incumbent, George Bush, for the white house.

Who would you rather have in office assuming those were your only choices?

Please tell us why after voting.

Voting?

Did you mean to have a poll?

It would be a good addition!

lol, man you're quick. Apparently the system posts the first message before you complete the poll.

Hillary -- I'll take a super-intelligent, calculated center-left almost-hawk over a not-so-calculating right-wing hawk who seems to formulate every domestic plan to benefit rich and upper-middle class people at the expense of others, although neither would be my first choice...

I voted for Hilary. The office of the president isnt just one individual, it is also comprised of the "advisors". I believe Hilary would have a better set of advisors who provide all relevant information for her to make an informed decision. The current president has already shown that the advisors are comprised of the type to show only "supporting" advice to a decision.

All I've got to say is fortunately there is a 2 term limit, cause I'd hate for those to be my only 2 choices.

Sorry, Yap--I tried to erase the post--but my service is not working well

As for the question and the poll, I'd say I am somewhere I lean somewhere between "anyone but the Big B" and yes, Clinton would probably have folks as advisors who mirror more progressive and forward thinking program (i.e.--health care).

I voted for Bush. Scowl if you want, I'm not here to debate, just offer my opinion.

At least, when Bush is given good info, he reacts properly. On the other hand, Hillary is totally illiterate on the military and war. We can not simply withdraw. It would be nice to have our troups come home. But we can't just pull out all at once and that's what she would have us do.

Somebody mentioned having good advisors. I look at her onterage and see people in like mind with her that would say what she wants instead of giving their gut feeling.

Just my opinion.
