    ...are you in Bob Schrum's office?

    Sebelius is one of the better governors in the U.S. (Point 1) and she has helped smack down the knuckle-dragging Rethugs, especially on evolution (Point 2).

    Let the best people rise to the top in 2008.  I don't want safe, hedged-bet picks for VP like Lieberman (choke, gag, puke) that won't work anyway.  I want a masterful, aggressive VP candidate who will complement the nominee and articulate his/her policies on the campaign trail, not a milquetoast cowtowing to the Rethug's conservative hitperson.

    9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.

    •  Feingold (0+ / 0-)

      I"ve been pushing Feingold for 3 years, so I'm hardly in the playing-not-to-lose camp.

      This election is important.  A sense of reality is called for no matter how idealistic we are.

      I am a female.  You think I'm not aware of the sexist attitudes still in this country?  In fact, women are as bad as men when it comes to female Presidential candidates and the war thing.  

      You can spin almost anything these days, but it's pretty friggen hard to spin your gender.

      Most on this site are fairly enlightened and progressive.  Not so the majority of voters.  Christ, the Repubs made Kerry and Cleland look like wimps, what do you think they'd do to a female?

      I make an exception for Condi and Hilary, as I think they are viewed a little differently.  Hilary has other negatives as we're all aware, and I'd bet everything I own the Repubs wouldn't run Condi, unless Hilary was the Dem candidate.  And even then I think it's a longshot.

      Be aware I don't agree with this sexist notion - I just think it's a reality.
