19. I agree...but in these times we only have two years...and Bush has
laid down the gauntlet about religion and thinks HE's the Messiah...so we've got to figure that the next one has got to have just a little of Clinton (who was very comfortable with religion but didn't push it in folks faces but was pragmatic). I'd like to see someone with Clinton's charisma but without his having to pander to DLC.

I want the next one to pander to Democratic Progressive Ideals (on that I'm at odds with our DU moderates and DLC/DNC leaning folks, though) and who will still have that "gift for language" that Clinton had. America might just be ready for an "intelligent, educated, President after 8 years of a neandethal simplistic simian speaking occupant in the White House. But, who knows..by then our education system might be so bad that simplistic linguists will be deciding who is the better person to run for President. Dumbed down so long we might not have discriminating folks out there. :-(
