There you go PrKitty. Everything you could want to know about Obama`s plan.
Barack Obama is a Hard-Core Liberal.
Is the country better off now than it was before he/she took office? At the end of Bush`s first term, the answer was a resounding NO. Nearing the end of his second, things are looking like they have gone even further downhill. Even with all the problems facing the country before he was elected, 8 years is enough time to make SOME progress.
So even if Bush is NOT worse than any other president we have had, he has still failed as a leader by not doing any better.
I don`t know what you are referring to Spacemn but yes we are closer to fascism than we have been since the McCarthy era. It`s a matter of perspective. Your strawman of saying we shoudn`t let Europe decide our next president is just silly. This is simply yardstick to measure political systems and candidates from another perspective. Nobody ever suggested we let Europe decide our next president.
I`m pretty sure Obama is a capitalist and believes in a well regulated free market economy. Do you have evidence to the contrary? Most people in this country also believe that the more money you make the more taxes you should pay and that their are some things the government should do, like build roads and keep the peace. The question is; where is the line?
Obama is the only reasonable one of the bunch. He may seem a pretty left leaning by comparison but he is actually a moderate- it`s just that the US has swung way towards the fascist side of the spectrum in the last couple of decades.
In Europe Obama would be considered a moderate.
I know I`m going to get ten million posts of "oh she`s brainwashed" but I look foreward to ten years from now when we can look back on these eight years with perspective.
I truly believe that a lot of the problems that we currently face, problems that are blamed solely on George Bush, are leftovers from Bill Clinton.

How STUPID are you?!
Okay... so the democrats eating themselves up is good for Obama? All McCain has to do now is not screw up and he wins in a landslide.
Though I smell rigging.
In both cases its wrong, but just stunning in the case of race.
I don`t like Obama or Hillary because of their failure to be up front with what they want to do if president. Both will try to sneak in as much pseudo-socialist bullcrap as they can.
McCain, from what I`ve heard, is at least more blunt with what he wants to do. And I think after Bush, that`s the type of president we need.
I seriously will.
Most Democrat voters are acting like little babies. Most of them said that If their candidate didn`t win the democratic party leadership, they`d vote republican. With the race close to 50/50 in the democratic campaign, that would be a pretty big blow.
I live in California, I`m voting for Nader!
- BTW McCain is going to win, whether we like it or not..
There`s been little evidence in-so-far that any candidate has a sway over the swing voters. Obama is as greasy as a politician as they come and once the general election campaigning starts that`s going to become more and more apparent, along with his blatant greenness.
It won`t be a landslide either way. But one of the worst things that could happen to this country is having Obama as president.
I voted for him, btw. Hillary Clinton and McCain will be like George Bush part II. Too bad Gravel doesn`t have a chance.
Nobody can throw rocks into the river like that man.
Now, I`m as cynical as the next guy, but remember, even though McCain will win the Southeast by a landslide, the electoral college says that`s just a waste of votes.
Pennsylvania - 21Maryland - 10Michigan (unlikely due to proximity to Illinois, however state is fed up with Democratic leadership)
Total electoral votes - 31

States Bush won that Obama could take:
Indiana (almost a lock with proximity to Illinois) - 11Iowa (see above) - 7New Mexico (a lock if Obama picks Bill Richardson as a running mate) - 5Missouri (corrupt Republican governor just declined to run for a second term, state elected a Democrat to the senate two years ago) - 11Ohio - 20Montana - 3North Dakota - 3South Dakota - 5Idaho - 4Colorado - 9West Virginia - 5North Carolina/South Carolina (possible depending on how hard Edwards campaigns and more likely if he becomes Obama`s running mate) - 15/8

Truly we need not only a Washington outsider, but a partisan outsider as well. I have lost hope that the Democrats/Republicans will ever be qualified to run this country, and so I look to the 3rd parties. Not this year, of course, but perhaps in the future we will be able to move beyond this two party system and elect someone with integrity.
Who do I think WILL win though? the most obvious choice would be Obama. However, I would not be surprised if McCain took it. Clinton cannot beat McCain, and I think the Democrats know this.
Someone needs to photoshop a poster of Fancylad`s presidential campaign.

i like how you all guessed obama. Old people rule the U.S. and they`ll wind up voting McCain. The democratic infighting might have blown the election. All they had to do was get their candidate out there earlier, and they could`ve just kept saying, a vote for a republican is just going to give you another bush, and they would`ve had it. But yeah, if you really seriously think obama has it, then you`re naive.

Like it or not, I think this is probably accurate.
Assuming the Democrats don`t shoot themselves in the knee at some point during the next five months (and don`t count that out, they`ve done it before) Obama will beat McCain pretty easily. He`ll take all the states Kerry took in `04 and a couple more in the Mid-West if for no other reason than they`ll vote for him to prove to themselves that they`re not racist.
Anyways, Obama FTW!
I don`t give a sh*t, they`re all the same anyway.
