38. I still think it would be detrimental to introduce another candidate. We know
who the Republicans will vote for (whoever it is with the R behind his/her name). But if we have Obama vs. Candidate X, half will go to Obama, half to Candidate X - then what happens when one or the other wins the nomination? Those who voted for the "loser" might just stay home. Can't risk it. IMO, natch.

And that's some scary pic you have in your sig line! :scared: :7:
