1. Ya know, I used to agree with that.
But the kitchen sink has scum all over the bottom of it, and it's going to poison the election.

2. I'm with you. I hope one of the candidates finds a way to be tough without
using misinformation, rumors, innuendo, out of context photos, fear. We need more light...not more darkness.

5. "one of the candidates"
It's OK to say Obama. There's no penalty, really. As far as I know.

3. there are two definitions of negative
one is simply highlighting your opponents negative qualities
and the other
is the dirty kitchen sink lying-ass smear tactics of the Clinton campaign.

(the latter is an example of the former, hahahaha : - ))))

6. At least you recognize the irony.
Take a look at the greatest page, and tell me with a straight face that negative politics - from the Clinton supporters - is what's poisoning the well.

7. I will admit the Clintons have pissed off a lot of people
But that's always been their style... they triangulate and
divide in order to conquer. And that strategy (whether dirty or not)
has worked for them countless times. And it's working again.
I'm just amazed so many go along with it.
