A recent poll found that more Americans would rather barbecue burgers with Barack Obama than with John McCain. Most Americans would still rather drink beer with President Bush, but only until he got drunk enough to shove into the pool. - Laughlines

"Russia does not have enemies and Putin is not going to start a war against the

conventional forces because of the possibility of a war with China or Russia. I

Subject: The New Democrats
Obama should be 20 points ahead of McCain...instead he's running neck and neck with McCain.
This is not good and I asked myself why and started Googling.
I ran across this article
Destroying Hillary Clinton
which explains the deep division within the New Democrat party.
I am an Old Democrat who is very grateful to the Clintons for giving this country 8 years of relative peace and prosperity while enduring constant unwarranted investigations (Clintons were 10 million in debt when they left the White House) which ended in a president impeached for cheating on his wife. And Obama Democrats revived the GOP hatred of the Clintons, all the while the GOP sat back and laughed.
Now Obama has flip flopped on campaign financing, FISA, and disturbing to me, he supports expanding Bush's faith based programs and the death penalty. I'm wondering why I should vote for him other than to keep McCain from being president.
And that is what my vote has come down to, not pro Obama but anti-McCain.
America---what a country.
Thank you so much Lisa for being there for us. I can't thank you enough.
Thank you for writing.
I agree. Obama should be far ahead of McCain. My guess is that Obama hasn't sufficiently wooed the other half of the Democratic party, remember them -- the "bitter" Hillary supporters?
Obama has made one speech with Hillary since she suspended her campaign four weeks ago this Saturday. Not much of an effort to "woo" if you ask me.
Obama may have won the nomination but it was at a high cost and the polls seem to reflect that.
Anti-McCain votes count too! Good for you!
