  1. I dunno David, either I’m screwed up or the way the results were interpreted was really odd.

    Like you I had Al Sharpton high on the list and even had Bill Bradley above McCain (how the heck did that happen I wondered?) The links to information were appropriate, so I guess I can forgive the poll for unexpected results.

  2. Yeah. For me the strangest thing is that the (unnamed) socialist candidate ranks 11, above half the democrats and all the republicans. Who is this person? I’ve never been called a socialist before. 🙂

  3. To most, I imagine John Kerry is not the epitome of passion. His voice will rise occasionally for the moment, but I’ve yet to feel myself rise along with it. Nor have I felt the need to. His speech is straightforward, articulate, thought through, and easily comprehended. I would certainly hope that voters would likewise be drawn to this, rather then the mindless babbling and repitive nonsense that seems to plague his fellow candidate, Howard Dean.

    Howard Dean may have been the victim of the usually exaggerated and fallacious polls which are so often taken as fact, but his exit, to me and not a few others I imagine, is a relief. His awkwardness overwhelmed him and his mercilessly pointless repitious statements makes it difficult to consider what gave him such a over-exaggerated start to begin with. Hopefully we may never hear again how Rush Limbaugh is the sole owner of the American flag, whatever that is suppose to mean. Hopefully we may never again wince in agony as a candidate’s charisma carries himself past coherency and intelligent thought, making him the animal he supposedly evolved from.

    John Edwards is quite simply not going to be the Democratic nominee. The democratic party of the United States has wasted far to much time on characters who have decided to run, rather then pursuing the character of those running. It would appear that perhaps the democratic party is simply beating around the bush, no pun intended, in order to pave what would appear to be a street of gold, whose presence will be graced by none other then Hillary Clinton. All liberal paths lead to her it would seem.
