4. Perot... had an image problem.
I would have voted for him, but he seemed a bit too strident for me. Shrill. I was looking for reasoned; logical, yet flavored-like a nice Chef salad with five types of cheeses- not too much of each- enough salad to crunch but not overwhelm the flavors, and a side bowl of ranch dressing with a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon. What I heard could be likened to a McD's "chef" salad with one type of cheese and a cherry tomato much too big to eat in one bite.

Clinton gave me the salad I wanted.

(yes, I have the munchies :smoke:)

5. The campaign funding thing
is honestly a bunch of true believers---over 200,000 at 57 bucks a whack.
now we're hunting the BIG game
2 million people. 100 bucks each. We can do this, people.

6. I like this quote.............
"I think there are 2,000,000 people who would borrow $100 just to send President Bush back to Crawford, Texas". Hell, I'll sell my house and give the money to Dean, I'll probably lose the house if Bush is in power much longer anyway.

9. There are a number of candidates
Spielberg and Geffen are both billionaires, and both liberals, although I don't know they are registered Democrats.

Soros is liberal and anti-Bush.

Buffet if reputedly a Democrat.

Bill Gates of Microsoft is a bleeding heart, and has said he isn't going to leave billions to his kids, so that says to me that he sure isn't a modern Bush-style Republican, and maybe the opposite. But Microsoft is still too important to him to risk getting involved on the side of the angles. His father, Bill Gates Sr., whom I understand owns a lot of Microsoft stock, is reputed to be liberal.

But very few billionaires are as obsessed with influencing other people's opinions like Scaife and Murdoch, the evil twins of the right. And Scaife is quite insane.
