169. This is the truth!!!
Edited on Mon Jan-28-08 08:04 AM by Rammy
This is the truth!!!

I was leaning towards Edward's for the most part, that was until this last debate when it was set in stone as to who will get my vote come the GE..

Watching those 2 bicker like little kids was an childish argument of he said she said, that seemed would not end and was an embarrasment. As Edwards sat patiently and silently through this, the first few words out of his mouth should have showed the COUNTRY, for god's sake the DEMOCRATIC community who the primary choice should be in this election.

Would it be cool to break the traditional mold of whom the president should be, and be a democrat at that? YES
Should it be this election, with the choices we have to break the mold? NO - Point blank, pointing at the last debate proves this.

I know I do not post much, so this post will probably be over looked, but here in the past few months this board is increasingly becoming what I would think the freeper board would look like.

You have your die hard, balls to the wall Dem's who to me display all the hate towards any candidate other then the one they signed on to support. These people who do not think or look outside the box, remind me of several people I work with that are repugs and will only vote that way. Even if someone they voted for, they defend on a daily bases becomes the lowest rated President in United States History. They do not waiver, they make excuses even if provided facts, so will in their mind justify what choices they made is the best one.

Do really need someone as head of our Great Country, who has received huge corporate donations, and another candidate who is receiving huge endorsements from celebrities, and also gets a lot of money from corporations too?

Or do you want someone who with every opportunity that he gets, only talks about what is wrong in AMERICA, and has plans already on how to make changes?

There is only ONE thing that is important to me in this election CHANGE. With this there is ONE candidate who has not changed anything in his campaign since day 1, and that is John Edwards. He will be the one that gets my vote, and hopefully people will start to see he is the best choice for the democratic party this year.
