15. After years of paralyzing frustration, DUers are desperate...
Edited on Sun Jun-22-08 10:36 PM by hlthe2b
for a "savior." And, not just any savior will do. While there may be many atheists/agnostics among us, there seems to be a unified view that we need a political savior on the "purity/perfection" scale of a "deity." I'm not saying this in a critical vein, as I can absolutely understand this feeling.

I hope that with some successes in hand, we will mature in our views and move past it. Until then, I can appreciate the fear that we might be pinning all our hopes in one individual and that we may be doomed, no matter what, to some disappointment.
