you want to see real self-control?DougSloan

A client's wife (who I have met) sent me an e-mail reading "Please consider joining the Dean Grassroots Campaign," with a link to the Dean website.

Argh. I'm biting my tongue.

you should support Deangtx

If he gets the nomination you'll be set. Then again I had friends who were rooting for Bush because they thought he would discredit and destroy the Republican party once and for all. I guess they could still prove to be right... I mean correct. ;)
he annoys meDougSloan

Not sure what it is about him, but he is really annoying. He just seems like know it all jerk. Sorry, but that's my impression.
and Bush doesn't?gtx

Seriously? Doesn't he seem like a dumb jerk? Even if he does happen to be on your team...

Honestly, to me, Bush sounds like a regular guy who should probably be herding cattle, but in a job that might well be over his head; his saving grace is being surrounded with people smarter than he is and having good intentions.

With those qualifications anyone could be president! (nm)ColnagoFE

Do we want only lawyers who are life long professional politicians?

Have some fun. Show up at the meetings and mess with them. Ask questions like "So this Iraq thing. Are we for it or against it?" And "We're for legalization of pot, right? I hope so." And "How do you spell Dean?"
you mean spy?DougSloan

Sounds like fun. However, I'm not that poker-faced in person, despite Ed and I making a good run of fooling nearly everyone here for an entire day. ;)

Just politely let this woman know. . .czardonic

. . .that you trust the Supreme Court to choose the President of the United States and that you will unconditionally stand by their decision.
hmm, you may have a pointDougSloan

I guess the real dilemma is whether I'd trust the Supreme Court of the United States, or some trial judge in Florida backed up by the Florida Supreme Court. Recall that it was Gore who took the battle to the courts, and it was the Florida courts which would have permitted only selected counties, chosen by Gore, to be recounted, AND that every recount still turned up Bush as the winner.

But this has only been rehashed about 5 million times... This argument is about as tired as the "Clinton lying about sex" argument, isn't it?
About as tired as the "Where are the WMD" argument too. (nm)czardonic

sure it is a tired argument, but the alternate reality is very interesting...
