People who think any of the Democratic candidates are "boring" are not paying attention
Like any of the candidates or not, but NONE of them are "boring".

If you have a decently developed adult brain with at least an 8th grade education and perhaps a 90+ IQ, you can find something interesting with any of the Democratic candidates.

Anyone who tries to flamebait that a certain candidate is "boring" simply is not telling the truth or is indeed an absolute bore in real life.

And Hillary, Edwards, Obama, Biden and Kucinich.

But not Gravel. Now he was entertaining.

5. You know who's boring? That guy who paints all those lighted-up flowers
around country homes.

Those paintings that show up on the back cover of the Sunday insert mags.

He's boring.

Senator Obama is NOT boring.

7. I agree Gravel was the most entertaining
But I don't use the entertainment factor as a reason for or against a candidate.

17. Pretty good list
but I would put Richardson a little higher only because his deer in the headlights look at the some of the debates gave me a chuckle or three.

19. Entertaining vs Interesting
Aaaah, now I see what teachers have been complaining about, when they say students won't pay attention unless they're a constant source of entertainment.

Yes, I do see that we might need to teach our children that taking an interest in a topic is something that one has to learn to generate themselves.

20. Locking
Please do not start a thread to reignite a flamewar.

Thank you for your understanding...
