    Still, * > politicians

    Honestly I don`t see "flip-flopping" here. He said he`d rather get cohesion and a consensus than just trying to force the Army to do something. That`s called collaboration and compromise, and it`s what the US had to do get the Constitution ratified if you can recall American history for a moment.

    I`m confused. How did he flip flop? These were his positions before, and they`re not that bad.

    "Last One: Clinton>>>McPain>>>>>Palin>>>>>>>>Obama"

    I don`t mean to start a debate, but do you really, actually like the McCain/Palin ticket more than Obama, while preferring Clinton over all that? Why?

    McCain != Obama && Palin <= (Clinton)^1/2 * ln(G.W. Bush - Abraham Lincoln/(1/4)) || pineapples = tasty.

    I have just summed up politics.

    I am sorry for all of this. My stupid neighbor was in my seat at this computer when this was commented. I am a Democrat and my disrespectful neighbor is just stupid.

    Ron Paul > Bob Barr > Chuck Baldwin > Jesse Ventura > Ralph Nader

    McBama is not even good enough to make it into my math equation.

    Vote for me in 2028! Peace & love everyone!

    OooooK. Really? Is this because he`s black? It`s because he`s black right? Because no one could possibly be troubled by the BS that has been constantly infiltrating my inbox for the past few months.

    What? Did you even read the article? There is no flip flopping here, especially not with gays and lesbians. He just wants to consult with people while making the change... Putting false generalizations on news articles won`t make you look like the greatest person.

    kitwatson: "Since Bob Barr isn`t gonna win."

    Remember one important thing. This is not a horse race. Vote for whom you want to run the country, not for whom you think will win.

    Or think of it this way: if they (McBama) are going to win anyways, WHY ARE YOU VOTING!?

    John Quincy Adams had it right, "Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost."

    sgdp makes a good point.

    DO NOT GET SWEPT UP IN THE CIRCUS.

    Look at each person`s background first.

    IF ANYTHING an election should be treated like a job! Not this muddy name calling promise fest!

    -What can you bring to my country?
    -What experience do you have running a very large group of people?
    -Are you a problem solver?
    -Can you handle a lot of pressure and stress?

    I dunno if this is a flip-flop...I`m not an Obama supporter...but I think this is unfair.
    on another note...if I was Obama, I`d be crapping my pants after reading some of the things celebrities and others are saying trying to help him....it`s only hurting himm...and the insults against McCain and Palin are starting to get pretty obscene...not a good thing for Obama

    This is Obama trying to be everything to everyone, I wonder if he even remembers the previous promises he`s made.

    Trying to nail down Obama on a political position is like trying to nail jello to a wall. slippery as an eel. That`s not what we need in the oval office.

    Come on...you can find better "flip-flops" by revisiting your own past, I`m sure. It`s a little 2004, as well, not that it should`ve been an issue then either.

    I find it hard to believe a female actually made this post. Especially after the whole thing where McLame left his wife by fax to marry a younger woman, then later called his new wife the "C" word on national television.

    Then again, I guess there are some women out there who yearn to be treated as if this were the 19th century (where McLame`s values on treating women obviously derive.)

    More political non-sense.. also to the poster about "why no left stuff :(" There is plenty of it if you open your eyes, I see equal ammounts for both sides of the field. But really, if I wanted to see biased reports I would watch CNN or Fox. ..

    Few more years and I can run for President x), watch youtube or your TV stations (if I get supporters) cause Ill be making many ads as the time grows closer.

    That`s not a flip flop. That`s the same thing he already said.

    Do you know what a flip flop is?

    Doesn`t sound like he`s flip flopping, sounds like he`s rethinking making a hasty change, by knowing that he would encounter problems doing it. Sounds to me like he`s got a strategy for his plans...methinks that`s smart and good, right?
