• You are taking what would seem to be a logical position:  if a conservative HAS to win an office have him at least be a Democrat conservative so at least its not a Republican.  The problem with this is the Dem party is becoming more and more conservative.  The only Dem bright spots for Dems in 2004 were conservative Dem victories in Wyoming and Colorado and now tonight (except for the very expected win by true liberal Corzine in NJ) we have a conservative Dem elected in VA (aw shucks folks I'm even more conservative and religious than mah Republican opponent)and the RON measures getting trounced in Ohio and the Governator doing much better than expected with his in CA.  The trend is unmistakable... liberalism continues to get trounced.  Why don't any of you care???
  • Only a troll would pretend that a victory by a very, very Conservative Democrat is any kind of win for liberalism.  Kaine's a conservative.  His stands on the issues are EXACTLY identical to Conservative Republicans except for his waffling issue-straddling on Abortion.  And he's very, scarily lukewarm in support of abortion rights.  You can tell he really would like to see an end to abortion which he admits is his "personal view".

    Something has to be done about Health Care in the US.  But socialized or nationalized health care is NOT the answer.

    I have lived in Canada, France and England and the health care systems were atrocious.  Long, long waits, rationing and unbelievable red tape.

    BUT this is NOT saying that we don't have a tremendous problem here.  We need to find a sensible way to provide health care for everyone.

    Schweitzer is a conservative in Democrat clothing.  If you're gonna support Schweitzer why not just change party's and vote Republican?

    He won office by running as MORE conservative than his Republican opponent.  We need LIBERALS in office not just Democrats.  Schweitzer should just change party's.

    Schweitzer is a conservative... Why not just vote Republican?  Are we so desperate for election victories that we'll accept just anyone???
