    While I have pretty much decided I will vote for John Edwards for VP and will definitely do that if the race is tight, I don't vote the party - I vote the candidate. Which is why I haven't voted for John Kerry in two of his reelection campaigns for Senate when I lived in Mass. For far too long, Democrats have said one thing and done another and they continue to do so today.

    How can anyone listen to a Democratic nominee and party complain about lost factory jobs when it was their president and their nominee that voted for every bad trade deal that has ever been proposed?

    How can anyone listen to a Democratic nominee and party complain about our lost soldiers in Iraq when they supported the action too and when their past president in 1998-1999 also supported regime change?

    How can anyone - with a straight face - listen to a Democratic nominee and party complain about corporate malfeasance in the media, scandals, campaign finance, etc. when they haven't done one single thing to stop it but instead, embrace it with the same fervor as the party they attack?

    Jerry Brown had it right in 1992 when he led the first "Take back America" campaign. Our nation - and the party - would have been better off had we listened then.

    No, despite Bush being a fascist, the Democrats are still as bad as they were in the past. The Democrats didn't get better. They didn't improve or change. Bush became far worse than anyone imagined. That is the only thing that has changed.

    Thankfully, my vote will count in New Hampshire. Thankfully, I can vote for a true Democrat - Granny D - in the Senate race and a pretty cool musician - Paul Hodes - for Congress. If the presidential race is tight here, I will vote for Edwards but I will also know that I should have voted for the best leader for our country - a man who has done more in 40 years than both John Kerry and John Edwards will ever do in their entire lives - and that's Ralph Nader.  

    Nader's running: Get over it. Move on. Jim Hightower: "I have a two-step program for you. First we get rid of Bush. Then we get rid of Kerry."

      "I will vote for Edwards but I will also know that I should have voted for the best leader for our country - a man who has done more in 40 years than both John Kerry and John Edwards will ever do in their entire lives - and that's Ralph Nader."

      You're right in one sense.  Ralph Nader has done more to hurt the American people in the last 4 years than John Kerry and John Edwards could do in several lifetimes.

      But more to the point:

      Are you aware that this is a Democratic website?

      Are you aware that you're trolling here?

      RedDan is Trotsky-ite communist who is here because he's supporting Democratic candidates.  But you spend considerably more time here boosting Nader and slagging Kerry than anything else.

      You say you're going to vote Edwards for VP, (whatever that means since the Pres & VP run together).  But that's not what most of your rhetoric here is advocating.

      Nader has been an entirely divisive force this year among those who hope to build a progressive alternative.  On Nov. 3, the Nader/Camejo campaign will cease to exist.  The Green Party will keep going.

      In a "safe" state? Consider a vote for David Cobb, the Green Party's candidate for President.
