    . . . think she is far too polarizing, or too hawkish on the War.  I don't doubt that she'd be better on domestic policy than what we have now, but I fear that she is just too much of a lightning rod to be elected President, and her hawkishness on FP troubles me.  And why the hell is she supported the anti-flag burning thing?  What gives? Why is that a priority?

    And I don't think Markos, the media, or anyone could deny her a fair hearing, even if they wanted to.  She will get her hearing. How people react is another thing altogether

    •  Any Democrat will be a lightning-rod. (0+ / 0-)

      What, the Republicans are going to give Mark Warner a pass?  Puh-leeze.  Any Democrat we nominate will either be a lightning-road or milquetoast.  I'd prefer the former.

      •  You are comparing... (0+ / 0-)

        Any candidate to a candidate with the name CLINTON.  CLINTON is an automatically reviled name on the right and to some moderates out there.  You really think a Mark Warner would be attacked and hated -- flat out HATED -- in the same light as Hillary Rodham Clinton?  Keep dreaming.

        I think Al Gore is the only one who can polarize voters as much as Clinton (that's because of his former association with Prez. Clinton).  BUT I think he could win over people a lot better during a campaign than HRC.  That's my take on it anyway.
