    I just hope the US can survive four years of Obama. Look how much damage Carter did in 4 years. And Obama's policies are almost identical to Carter's!

    I was one of those disenchanted Conservatives, but within the last few months I've come to realize Obama is such a danger to the US, I have to vote for McCain.

    Its Sad really

    I was hoping for an Obama/Edwards Ticket. I think it would have solidified the Dem presidency, regardless of the affair and all the skeletons being drug out by the right wing media. Edwards had the Unions and Blue collar America in the East.

    Sigh Now Obama had to go and choose a nimrod like Biden. I dont like him,never did. He certainly doesnt represent me or my values at all. I know MP likes him and all and i can respect that , but really now, i dont see Obama winning this, Obama should have just put Hillary on the Ticket(may have been a slightly better chance there of a win).

    get ready for 4 more years of a republican run disaster.


    Yay TWS
    It makes me mad when people say I turned and ran like a scared rabbit. Maybe it was like an angry rabbit, who was going to fight in another fight, away from the first fight.

    Personally,it does not matter WHO gets in this time around, it's going to be a disaster...and has been every election since Reagan.

    We are suffering from a gross ineptitude on a massive scale. It is SO bad, that anyone smart enough, and qualified enough to be President, is not Dumb enough to actually run for the job.

    This leaves us with having to scrape the bottom of the barrel and voting for the least dangerous candidate.

    In this case the least of the two evils is McCain.

    Are you that lost?

    Edwards political career is done. He was banging a staffer while his wife was fighting cancer! That's low, even for a douche like him.

    He really did not have blue-collar and union support like you think. Once the story hit about his house literally being the most expensive in his county, he lost that support. The affair ruined the small support he had left.

    Had he connected to core Democrat groups like you said, he would not have finished 3rd in a 3 person race, and that was BEFORE the affair story broke.

    Yeah, a lot lower than Larry Craig, oh but wait, he just uses a wide stance. I bet RD practices that stance

    The tool that is Biden.

    He reminds me of Richard Daley. Maybe that is why I can't stand him on a cellular level.

    What he said about his own running mate was amazingly stupid.

    Is he a good pick, not in my book. Tim Kaine would of been a better choice just to take his state.

    I find all this interesting since Obama is ahead in both the IEM and the intrade political markets. He is also ahead in the WSJ political market.

    In fact, the WSJ has the contract price on an Obama victory at 62.5%

    But hey, what do highly accurate predictive markets know

    Yes, I realize all this could change and it could be wrong. But they are pretty good markets, and behavioral economics is actually pretty close to voting in an election.

    does anybody think that there is a really good chance we're going to see the next presidential assassination attempt with Obama as president?

    that's honestly been the key though for me as I've been waiting to see who he picked. no matter who was on the republican side, they would have gotten my vote if THAT woman had been picked.

    I like Biden simply because he has screwed up and showed real gut emotion to things at times. I agree that it at least seems as if he is what you see.

    if that happens, biden will choose hillary to be vice... possible. could just be bait to stir up civil unrest to give another reason to declare martial law.

    Most of the the 'experts' predicted GW Bush losing the last 2 elections. Hell, they predicted Hillary to easily win the Democratic nomination and Romney to win the Republican one. Sylvia Browne has a better hit percentage!

    If Obama does not get a bounce with his VP pick and the convention, he is in big trouble. His poll numbers have been in a steady decline for awile, and he has had ALOT more media coverage than McCain. FYI, Hillary actually won the last few primary states too.
