that why so many expect so much from this one man....

But just think, if he had been trice married under circumstances like that Newt,
you think he would have won any states in the Primaries????

So he's going to be a tough act to follow for the next President, whatever that person's
color! Hopefully, it will be a woman! Hillary was looking mighty beautiful tonight...
I will add that!

18. This thread probably has some folks climbing the walls here

Which is exactly why I'm going to rec the beejeesus out of it.

I know something this banal (and I don't mean that in a bad way at all) would never get as many recs as some of the non-stop mindless whining around here, but it would sure make me happy if it came close.

Come to think of it, I'm rec #14 and that's better than alot of the bashing has done around here lately. DU is turning a very obvious corner now. It's about damn time.

Edit: LOL!! In the 9 seconds it took me to type this, it got two more recs. I'm actually rec #16 not 14!

36. I'll elaborate some for you

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manichaeism#Figurative_use

Zbigniew Brzezinski used the phrase "Manichaean paranoia" in reference to U.S. President George W. Bush's world view (in the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, March 14, 2007); Brzesinski elaborated that he meant "the notion that he (Bush) is leading the forces of good against the empire of evil".


Calling everyone who disagrees with a policy position, or two, or three, "haters" is just another example of this mode of thought.

64. It's a matter of opinion as to JFK and Obama, but Michelle is much warmer in her spirit than

Jackie was. Strange, but there was always something very insecure about Jackie. She always seemed a bit shy and frightened. Michelle is naturally more relaxed.

He's not bad looking at all. But he's a bit skinny and those EARS!

But it's his personality and obvious intelligence that make him more attractive. I'd rather have an "aight" looking man that was smart and made me laugh than a drop dead gorgeous man with the personality of a light bulb any day.

Yes Bill C is very attractive; he's got that sweet Southern guy charm that gets the Ladies! But I think Bill's charisma, keen intellect, and charm make him even more appealing. Bill's up there w/JFK. B Obama is also; he's sophisticated. Dems IMHO are more attractive; I think it's because they tend to be younger & charismatic, smart.
