  •  Why are we making such a big deal (none)
    out of foreign policy experience?  George Bush became president(note I did not say was elected)without ever being out of the country.  The only foreigners he probably even knew were members of the Saudi Royal family.

    If someone could make a president out of George Bush, who actually had a shitty record as govenor, probably sent to death innocent people, never held down a productive job-let alone a job his dad didn't get for him and help clean up his big mess after he ran them all into the ground,was investigated by the SEC a couple times(never charged but never exonerated)he also was a deserter with a serious drug and alcohol problem, an arrest record, was a cheerleader in high school and college in addition to being a crappy student who only got in because he had a rich daddy,and to top it off his grandfather was a documented nazi sympathizer, if they can 'sell' this clown to the American people  what the hell is wrong with the Democratic party?!  

    I would think that the Democratic party should be able to 'sell' a guy who is smart, well educated, principled, who didn't grow up rich or look to public service as a way to get rich.(he is by far the least rich guy in the United States senate-yet he still doesn't take COLA raises). He has shown in actions and words that he cares about his country more than his career.(I don't know his personal life but I suspect that his dedication to his country may have also contributed to his divorce)  If the Democrats can't(or won't try)to sell that after this country is neck deep in corrupt political scandals, no-bid contracts, a stupid incompetently planned war that is killing our soldiers and weakening America. Huge budget deficits, torture, and a goverment that is now more into our personal decisions than ever in recent memory, more poverty, less health care, ect...we deserve to loose.
