  •  Obama and Edwards (0+ / 0-)

    I see both as young, naive candidates. But I think Obama is doing a much better job at not coming off as young and naive than John Edwards.

    Don't hate me, woo me. I'm a moderate.

    •  i disagree (6+ / 0-)

      i just watched edwards on cbsnews.com's "face the nation" (...here) and he came across as a man with composure and control... the last word that came to mind was "naive."

      senator obama isn't naive either and i give him complete support at this point (as i do edwards)... we'll see which one ends up the strong horse and that's the one that gets my vote.

      this whole inexperienced argument is crap... senator clinton certainly isn't "experienced" simply because she is bill's wife and a one-term senator.  how she earned the tag of "experienced" is beyond me.

      and she is oh-so political in an age when people are sick of rovian nastiness and politics-driven decisions.

      There are some very capable Republicans who I have a great deal of respect for," Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press. "The opportunities are there to create a more effective relationship between parties."

      Among the Republicans he would seek help from are Sens. Richard Lugar of Indiana, John Warner of Virginia and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Obama said.

      What kind of assistance will Coburn give to progressives, do you suppose.  enlighten me.

      What's the plan? The plan is I go in and start hitting people in the face hard. (Angel, from the Series)

        of the bitterness of Washington, DC since the Clintons in the 1990's.  It is time for us to get past that and work together.  How in the hell do you think legislation get past?  These people have to work together.  Obama has worked with Coburn on legislation.  This is getting real old and the country is tired of it coming from either side.  If you want to continue fucking gridlock, Clinton.  Want a new beginning, want to get something done?  Obama.  Good night.

        worked to together on a Federal Transparency Bill together, which passed and was signed into law. It is a good bill which had strong support among progressives in the blogosphere. In fact, I know many here were upset when two senators(Byrd and Stevens I believe) put a hold on the bill.
