Lieberman rips Romney and Obama for high negativity in the campaign

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman slammed the Obama and Romney campaigns Tuesday for engaging in what he considers record-high negativity during this year’s presidential race.

Mr. Lieberman, an independent former Democrat, made his comments on the same day that a pro-Obama political action committee debuted an ad that features a former steelworker linking Bain Capital’s closure of his plant to his wife’s death from cancer.

The senator, who will retire at the end of this year, challenged both candidates to shift their focus toward laying out their own plans for the country and argued that increasing divisiveness in the campaign is only working to shake voter’s confidence in their nation and its government.

“It’s exactly the opposite of what our country needs,” he said on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “Part of what our country needs now is a healthy dose of vision of what both of these candidates will do if they get elected, instead of trying to scare us into how terrible the other one .”

Not this again...

Would you date a conservative?

I know most DUers are liberals and political junkies. But some people here have friends and relatives who are to the right.
My question is would you ever date someone who was a Republican or a conservative, even if you liked pretty much everything else about them?

No More Moderates?

I was watching Hairball on MSNBC today, and Tweety had on Michael Steal and Michael Schmerchonish. Schmerconish said that while most voters (supposedly) are moderates, there are becoming fewer moderates in office from either party. He said the G0Pee has moved rightward, while the Dems have moved leftward.
Now my question is how has the Democratic party moved to the left? I keep hearing pundits saying that both parties are becoming polarized, but I don't see how Democrats have really moved leftward. For example, while I think he is a good president overall and far superior to Mitt R0bme, Obama has mostly been governing as a moderate. If the Democrats have truly moved further to the left and there are a lack of moderates in the party, wouldn't we see them proposing things like marijuana legalization nationwide, gun control, universal health care, election reform, and a return to Eisenhower-era taxes?
Anyway, thanks for reading this. I just wanted to vent this out because it was driving me nuts.

Watching the olympics, I started thinking...

when are we going to see more female head coaches in pro sports? I noticed there are male head coaches in BOTH male-dominated sports like the NFL and NBA, and in female-dominated sports such as the WNBA. And there are even male coaches for women's olympic teams. But there are zero female head coaches for men's teams. Why has it been like this? Is it because people think male athletes wouldn't want to be ordered around by a woman?

Is there a way to get abs without cutting out junk food?

My workout routine is 15-20 minutes on the treadmill, then 15-20 of either push-ups or crunches. I work out almost daily, and everywhere except my stomach is toned. I understand it would be more effective to not eat junk food, but I can't see myself giving up foods like pizza and cake for a diet full of salads and water. Can anyone here suggest a suitable workout routine?
