I'm gonna burn out before November

Did her emotion help her in the primary? Is she a man or a woman? It's a damned shame that a strong, intelligent woman needs to get all girly and weepy for other women voters to step up and take a chance on her. There's finally a woman with the cojones and the experience to take on the task of digging this country out of the pit that the current administration has created. But that's not enough, we need to see her being emotional. Give me a f'in break.

Is she the best candidate? Not sure.

One thing I have learned, though, is that the president can make a difference in this country. Take a look at all of the signing statements used by the GWB administration, more than 750 in the first term. Among them were passes he granted himself on a range of laws including " military rules and regulations, affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about immigration services problems, ''whistle-blower" protections for nuclear regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally funded research," according to a Boston Globe Report.

So yes, we should pay attention to this race. Inspect these candidates. "Look inside their mouths."

"Look inside their mouths" is a great closing line. Good link to GWB's record too. I've heard too many people say "how much can a president really do." Well now you know. Then there's the other half that think the president can cure their autistic child.

Really, you hit it square. She's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. She's too tough they cry and now, showing emotion, she's not tough enough. The Duhb waited almost ten minutes to eek out any emotion after hearing about the attack on the Twin Towers. Where was the criticism on his emotional state, on his humanity? People are daft in this country because they are not willing to go beyond the surface for their national leadership.
