    will have to decide whether or not to vote for a candidate they don't like, but support of what they want, or someone who doesn't and is likeable. If the war, healthcare, the economy and saving the Constitution is as important as they say it is, they will find themselves voting reluctantly for Hillary

    If not, they will vote for McCain and this country deserves the fascist dictatorship it will get.

    As you can tell by my most recent diary, I don't ahve faith in them.

      climate and energy decisions made (or not) in the next 5 - 10 years will decide whether our descendants make it or not.

      Clinton is I know hated here for the Iraq vote etc, but her record on climate/energy has been excellent: she will implement Gore strategy on solving it.

        is that it will be our next wave of jobs for the middle class.  We need to get some real manufacturing back into this country.  We cannot continue as a consumer society or we will be third world by 2030.  Capital can move anywhere in the world now looking for cheap labor, so crying for our mill jobs will not help because everyone can do that work cheaper.  But a high quality industry selling and competing with other countries for new technology is the wave we need to get this country moving again.

      independents would find choosing her difficult at all. So much for trying to be competitive. Come and eat at the Clinton-owned Democrat Cafe - our menu items are only SLIGHTLY less disgusting than our competitors.

      It's about personalities and getting that good, good feeling from someone who makes your heart pump red, white and blue with thoughts of suburban subdivisions, 2.4 kids, war heroics and big bathtubs of cars with massive fins on the back.  From Appalachia to the Sierra Nevadas, this is what America's independents think about, and that's why they might well break for Romney, but will definitely break for McCain.

      Independents won't vote for Clinton.  Any way you slice it, that's the cold reality here.

      A conservative is just a liberal who hasn't needed a second chance yet.
