Yeah, what if Bush is dumb enough to fly himself into Iraq again, and he gets shot? Cheney's heart may not be able to take it, and who would we end up with then?

Has anyone heard the rumors that Bush may dump Cheney? That would be too bad. sad20gif Seriously, though, if Cheney would have another heart attack during the race, wouldn't it be irresponsible to keep him as the VP candidate?
I think Bush would be forced to dump him then. Let's hope Cheney stays reasonably healthy. He may be able to help us out a little. Like Hillary Clinton, he is a polarizing figure. Heck, he is the reason I voted for Gore in '00.

That's voting my conscience; I believe it's imperative to
get Bush/Cheney out of office.
My thoughts exactly. Before we have no environment, economy, or Bill of Rights left.

I keep vowing to myself not to read any more postings on politics or religion and keep getting sucked back in again... back to square one now!

Hmm... I kinda guessed that Kerry would get
the most votes. Anyone except kurlykitty and the_cheat
want to talk a little about their votes for Nader/other or Bush?

I'm going to guano this thread for a quick question. I heard on one of those conservative talk shows today (which are obviously biased) that Kerry is a registered Republican. Does anyone know if that's true? If so, would you have reservations about voting for him if it's a Democrat you want in office?

End of guano. TIA.

I've been thinking it over now for some days, and I have decided that Kerry stinks like the wind I just broke.

I'm going to be writing "Dennis John Kucinich" in on my general election ballot, whether he's on it or not! They will probably steal my vote anyway, but damnit, it'll be mine, at least for a little while, and I'm going to use it as I SEE FIT.

How could he be a registered Republican if he's been a Democratic senator for 20 years. They may have been referring to his wife. She used to be married to a Republican senator and allegedly changed parties to be able to vote for Kerry. I have issues with the wife but she isn't running for office. I think it is odd that she recoils when he hugs her. That isn't wifely behavior.

Either way, I wouldn't care. It's Bush I have issues with, not Republicans as a group. As long as I agree with someone on most of the issues, I will vote for that person regardless of party affiliation.

Some of my more Democrat friends are mad at me because I don't hate Arnold.

I totally disagree with this statement.

I say vote your conscience, and if that means that Bush is in office for another four years, so be it.

Maybe this country has to get really, really bad before there can be any kind of real social change, but I think people not voting who they want to vote for just because they know he won't get elected is a very bad idea.
I totally disagree with Springcurl. If Bush is in office for another 4 years, the country could be damaged in very permanent ways: If a moderate or liberal Supreme Court justice retires, we'll end up with another Scalia in the SCOTUS, and Roe v. Wade will likely be reversed. That is a hugely scary prospect. And, more people could die in another needless war started on false pretenses.

I totally understand. I'm starting to feel more uncomfortable with Kerry... I'm still in the denial stages as a Kucinich supporter - It's hard to accept that he's not doing well. I have fear of both a Kerry or (continuing) Bush presidency because of one word: draft. Bush has his "back off, I'll take you on" foreign policy and Kerry wants to increase the troops by 40,000. How will you have either of those and not a draft? With troops still in Iraq and other bad situations cropping up, I don't believe either one when they say a draft out of the question. Kucinich seems to be the only one concerned about getting the hell out of Iraq. He seems to be the only one speaking in realistic terms about our military's situation. I don't fear a women draft - it could be tried, but I doubt it would work for reasons that others stated on a thread created about this before. I fear my guy friends and my brother having to join, though.

Speaking of Dennis, I don't know if any of you have seen this:

http://www.kucinich.us/pressreleases/pr_031404.php

I think it is great that he is willing to discuss subjects, like the atrocities of war, that Kerry and Bush either won't/can't bring up. It's nice to have a politician with enough compassion for both the civilians and the soldiers to raise this concern.

Perfect example of why you should question everything konservative radio says. Everything.

LA Times today: Kerry was scheduled to hold a town hall meeting here at Marshall University and then wait for election returns from Illinois. That state's Democratic presidential primary today is expected to push Kerry past the 2,162 delegates he needs to win the party's nomination.

Kerry, however, effectively wrapped up the Democratic race two weeks ago and has begun a dogfight with President Bush that is expected to last more than seven months until election day.



Vote for Kucinich or Sharpton or whoever you want but don't pretend it's not a vote for Bush.

OK, who are all the Democratic Bush supporters? Methinks we could have some Republicans in disguise.

IF you are a Bush supporting Dem, you have sinned against the Great Kerry and must face punishment. All of you Nader/Kucinich/Sharpton supporters are undercover Bush supporters - you have been found out!! You hide your love of The Bush beneath a liberal cloak, but your loyalty to the left wing is laughable. BRING. IT. ON.!!!!!!

Had to get in here, good discussion. CHeney doesn't look fragile to me. I dislike him a lot, but he looks like a nasty ,.......Bush chose him for his foreign policy experience. Can't understand hating Gore. I loved him and have a picture with him at B & N when he signed his book. He really is less wooden in person, with a nice smile. He had our interests at heart and we wouldn't be in this predicament in the world if he were President. And Kerry will continue Clinton's policies. He even said so. I just pray he gets in and Bush goes back to Texas, leaving us with a $500 billion deficit and bad feelings all over the world. There is much to fix and only a Democrat can do it.....

I actually only caught part of the statement. That's blasphemy! Didn't you know that conservative radio is the gospel??? (kidding of course).

I agree with CIC. How could he be registered republican when he's been a Dem. senator for 20 years? I checked it out. It was his wife.

I agree, and he talks out of the side of his mouth, literally and figuratively.

Finally, someone picked the Dean write-in option!

To the people who chose to support Kerry, how sure are you at this point that you will vote for him (if you don't mind me asking)?

What do you Kucinich people think about this? My friend a liberal Dean person who is now a reluctant Kerry person said while she likes some of what Kucinich has to say he is too unlikable and abrasive to ever catch on.
