22. No, I can't live with her Republican opponent being elected.

So I will now be volunteering as I have said in earlier replies. The reason I was conflicted was because her ad really bothered me. The bright smile as she said, "I voted for the balanced budget which President Obama was adamantly against." That just really bothered me, I am sorry.

I understand her need to appease and win over non Democratic voters, but I don't have to necessarily like the way she chooses to do that.

I will volunteer for her because you are right the PUKE would be worse.

I shouldn't have needed to ask because I know we don't live in a perfect world, and no candidate can be perfect, and I have to accept that its not a liberal area where I live. But I just sometimes get personally frustrated that our side has to compromise our shared values so much just to get elected to some of these seats, that's all. But sadly its the reality we are in.
