Well that wasn't the question proposed in the original post now was it? I am not a Obama supporter nor am I a Democrat. I am a registered independent and have been since I could first vote in 1998.None of that will happen, keep on dreaming dude! :lol:
I don't think any president has ever gotten even a quarter of what they proposed in their campaign platform done. It is just a very, very hard thing to do when politics have gotten so divisive.
I think Obama is the most electable of the candidates still in trace. I don't think Clinton is electable because there are conservative factions who will DO ANYTHING to stop Clinton from being elected president. You can't really understand the outright hatred that some conservatives have for Clinton unless you have been active in politics for a while and really followed both sides of the idealogical spectrum.
I like McCain and always have but he had his chance in 2000 and Rove screwed him. Now if I got screwed like McCain was screwed by the Bush/Rove machine I just don't think I could have ever made up with him. I do understand that in politics sometimes you have to make nice with people that you really shouldn't so I understand why McCain made up with Bush. McCain was probably the best republican in the field because Romney was more fake then Clinton, Huckabee was too scary, Rudi was out of touch, Thompson wasn't exciting enough, and Paul was also too scary.
The problem is McCain is too old, he would be the oldest president ever elected if he wins, and so his Veep choice is very important. I have a feeling he might pick Huckabee which would be the final nail in the coffin for me. I can sort of look past his abortion stance and I can understand his position on Iraq even if I don't agree with it. In the end though as much as I like McCain I could not vote for him.
So that leaves Obama who is a little too liberal for me but we all have to make compromises.
Oh and if I write a nice, well thought out and organized 368 word post I would appreciate more then a nine word response with a :lol: at the end. Trust me it just makes you look stupid.
