You aren't very observant. When ABC ran that show blaming Bill Clinton for 9/11 his and Hillary's operatives were all over the media denouncing it and defending him. They got it dropped from going into classrooms and had it discredited before it even aired. The clinton's have a very powerful and influential media presence.
You guys throw out the term DLC likes it's some type of all-powerful exclusionary handicapping factor then you are base unaware of simple reality.
Are you one of those who defends the DLC without knowing what it really is?
Anyone who condemns Edwards for not helping Kerry win a state in 2004 loses my attention immediately.
Any VP candidate who delivers nothing loses my attention as a possible prez nominee. The way I see it, you get one shot to prove what you've got -- and Edwards had his and proved what he hasn't got. And that goes for everyone who ran in 04.
My first take is that your responses are politcal argument
Not really -- just conversation.
My second take is that I'll consider what you said about McCain and watch for more essays and articles backed up by poll
My take on this is based on several things. One, Busheviks hate McCain becayse of the masterful smear job done on him by the Bush Mafia. Two, he did terrible in that recent straw poll. Three, why would the Bush Mafia want anyone who polls say might win the presidency to be the nominee -- they'll want a loser to set the table for Jeb the way Dole set the table for George.
My third take is that, either way, I should pick up the meme and spread it around
I've only heard one political slogan that was stupider than "Electable" and that was "Where's the beef?" in 1984
Unfortunately, in both instances Democratic primay voters swallowed them whole and rewarded the perpetrators with their nomination.
That's why I have to believe that Hillary is a shoe-in. She's got all the money, and her media operatives will make sure she controls the message (and they're probably thinking up something even stupider than "where's the beef" right now.)
Then maybe you and your sunny outlook could tell us just who the star player is?
Petty sarcasm aside.....
I've only said about 20 times on this thread that Hillary has the money and machine to become the nominee. I've also said that most of the others will probably take a look at cold, hard reality and not even run. I don't support her, but I'm not so wrapped up in my preferred candidate that I can't see political facts when they stare me in the face.
Given Sitkah's "standards", I think his name is Jesus H. Christ.
More petty sarcasm aside......
My standards aren't all that high. I just don't support Democrats whose fingerprints are on the most odius aspects of Bush's agenda. I guess I'm not as easily "mollified" as some.
