Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

Yes and no. You were commenting on the war while dismissing Karen's point that she didn't view the trade off of ending the war while ushering in socialism as a particularly viable choice. My comment...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

That's helpful. I'm surprised that a devoted Obama supporter is so annoyed. Your guy is doing very well. Yet, where is the love for the undecided folks or those poor schlubs who don't support your...

Re: R.I.P. Charlton Heston

He was one of the first Hollywood stars to take an active role in the Civil Rights movement. He marched with Martin Luther King and raised lots of money for the cause. He was honored for his...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

You will note that I said I was surprised I didn't know about it, not that it was true. The oversight is due in part to the fact that I haven't paid much attention to JM and that he doesn't trumpet...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

I learned something new about McCain today and I was somewhat surprised that I wasn't aware of it; maybe some of you already know that his youngest son is in the Army and served in Iraq recently....

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

I do think age (or call it experience if you prefer) is important, but the ones that will resonate with middle America when the nitty gritty gets going in the general election campaign are the ones...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

Thanks, FM, I appreciate that you took the time to answer the questions I posed.

One item that is at the forefront of my current thinking on the upcoming general election campaign is how the...

Re: Affirmative Action

I agree with your sentiments and wonder if we are at the point where we can look at shifting to the socio-economic model rather than a race model.

One question though, what SE Asian country/ies...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

In light of your strong support of Obama, I was wondering where you might come down on some issues. If you're willing, and I certainly understand if you'd prefer not to, here are questions I'm...

Re: Earth Hour Blackout?

This report from Australia (http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/earth_hour_crashes_to_earth/) indicates not much change, if any, there. A couple of amusing...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

Michael Barone, one of the few political pundits that I actually trust, offers a scenario that is likely to happen, Clinton wins the popular vote and Obama leads in delegate numbers. Given the chaos...

Re: New Advertiser website

I've stopped visiting the site on a regular basis following this transition. I'm one of those who went there because it was mainstream media - I can get all the blog, opinion, etc. I want elsewhere -...

Re: Micronesians!

I agree that there needs to be some type of dialogue opened between the various groups. The conference is a start. I'll be interested to hear your report. Guam has been on the frontlines of...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

This is an example of the chipping away that the candidates are doing to each other during this campaign. From the HRC camp they are smarting about BHO's advisor Ret. Gen. McPeak who (bizarrely to my...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

What's mildly interesting about this is that it's indicative of a scenario likely to play out amongst the various superdelegates from now and on into the convention. If HRC continues on to win...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

Did anyone else watch the Obama speech? Upon reflection I think I'm going to call this one the "Throw grandma under the bus" speech. He equated his grandmother confessing concern once about passing a...

Re: best japanese restaurant?

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

I would imagine the difference is due in no small part to the fact that McCain has never made his religion an integral part of his campaign and the two pastors quoted are "supporters" as opposed to...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

I don't know that I agree with this. You think it's somehow worse for kids to hear "your mom punched your dad" rather than "your dad does wh****"? At any rate, it is only a dream...

Re: The 2008 Presidential Elections - Chapter 2

My fondest wish is for one of these women to haul off and smack the bastard right in front of the cameras...I know it's just a dream, but it would be so satisifying to watch.

Re: NY Gov Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

What an arrogant jerk. I feel sorry for his three teenage daughters though. Can you imagine going to school with this kind of news about your father everywhere?
