"Why are these people allowed to run for public office?"

A lot of Americans don't want to vote for someone they think is "elite" or significantly smarter than them. They want to vote for someone they can relate to.

That is how we ended up with Bush twice.

It is also the reason Mitt Romney had to constantly wear jeans and his famous checkered shirt and Obama had to go bowling.

Sounds stupid, but the editor cut out the rest of her sentence.

@Student_Law

Then there's a pesky question of what exactly people want out of Ron Paul. There are plenty of people who agree with him 90%+ of the time but that group could be fragmented into priorities or things they DON'T want him to do. I for one don't want him taking away birth right citizenship which is what he advocates.

This nomination process is going extremely well. For Barack Obama, that is.

The only candidate who carries a minimum level of reliability is Ron Paul - but he has a political point of entry that I don't think can ever reach adequate consensus in USA. If Paul is serious about cutting away aid to Israel, he will never stand a chance facing Congress. Which is sad, because truth is that these are the types of political decisions that has to be made in this time of crisis. A country in a serious recession cannot uphold expensive international colony- like institutions like Israel, and at the same time pay down debts effectively.

4 more years of Obama would = screwed. I'm not sure Liberal would want that either. After 8 years of Obama, everyone would vote Republican. Every single elected official would be republican in 2016.



Funny, I said the same thing about George Bush right before his second term. Here's the problem: none of the Republican candidates are really all that noteworthy. It usually takes a lot to oust the incumbent; people usually prefer the devil they know to the one they don't.

No matter who wins the caucauses, there'll be 8 years of Obama. Mark my words.

People aren't as stupid as Republicans think they are. And, unfortunately, each one of them has a vote.

Let's see what happens.

"I would prefer a candidate that formed an opinion on the most current information, but not so stuborn that he couldn't take a new viewpoint if new information warrented it"

I don't disagree with you there Gerry. But with Romney I just get the sense that there's no underlying core of opinions or a coherent worldview that is his. Every other candidate has one. Paul, Santorum, Huntsman, Obama. But Romney doesn't seem to have very much of a distinct ideological foundation beyond what fits into his Republican abacus of victory. And without that core how can we predict what he will really do in the White House when he no longer has to craft himself to us? He's an arch-pragmatist who takes up and abandons positions following a carefully calculated formulation. Paul is in many ways his complete opposite. He's perhaps too ideological and won't hesitate voice extremely unpopular opinions if they follow logically from his worldview. Romney wouldn't do something so inexpedient.

I like Gingrich, but here's the deal. Ron Paul will not win New Hampshire. Romney will win that by default. Gingrich will win South Carolina. Santorum will be either second or third in both of those. Then, the real test will be Florida. That is a southern state, so guess what. Gingrich. Once again, Santorum will be in the top 3. He will be the nominee. Paul is too crazy for the normal folks, and Romney is too liberal. Santorum will be the nominee, and if Paul runs third party, he is doing this country a disservice.

LOL Santorum wins Iowa, but Paul claims victory. Does it even matter anymore?

He (Paul) came in 3rd by the way.

drat Mitt Romney. That is all.

Thanks for pointing out the two extremes of the scenario because I think that best illustrates the dichotomy, davymid. Of course we must not judge anybody, especially a leader, who comes to an alternative conclusion about something based on careful thought and possibly powerful epiphany, but I guess I just illustrated the perfect balance there didn't I - not wishy-washy but steadfast in their commitment for the right reasons. I too would lean toward a Type 1 with these qualities, though that still leaves us with the rhetorical question of what it means to represent one's constituency!

I guess it's up to us to decide that.

Holy balls. At time of posting, there are fewer than 150 votes between Santorum and Romney, with 93% counted. 5 minutes ago it was less than 50 between them. Ron Paul 3rd, the others settling well into a lower tier.

Suicism: good question. I guess you have two end-members. End-member 1 is so pig-headed and firm in his/her convictions that they CAN push their own personal crusade too far, even in the face of changing public opinion (which as you point out, is the very constituents they represent). End-member 2 on the other hand can be a wishy-washy flip-flopper who will do anything to garner votes, and at the end of the day is not the candidate that you voted for (based on their political convictions) two months into their term because they're constantly pandering to public opinion. So like most things in life, I believe that the true answer lies somewhere between the two end-members.

And to answer the question, I'd lean towards 1.

@suicism: (2) I want a politician that listens to the people. However, Romney and the rest of the Republicans, flip-floppers or not, are only listening to the 1% and those that think that the 1% aren't shipping jobs overseas.
