reagan/BUSH... BUSH/quayle... CLINTON/gore... BUSH/cheney... CLINTON/?...
If Hillary were to become president, future historians will regard this era of elite dynastic rule - where a Bush or Clinton occupied the White House for 32-36 consecutive years - as the end of US democracy. They'll wonder in amazement what the hell we were thinking and how we let it happen.

1. Some of us are trying to keep it from happening.
We're up against the establishment and the media and the big money. If we can pull it off, it'll be nothing short of a miracle.

2. That is, I think, what is being attempted
And now we have Bush's policies turning us into a monarchy yet again.

11. Ties into the earlier thread on the "entrenched interests"
/quote

I believe that "the powers that be" inside the beltway deeply fear a candidate who has a million donors. That includes the Clintons, the Bushes, the McCains, the lobbyists, the journalists ... nearly all of those involved in the machinery of government. The fact is that the whole system is driven by lobbyist money, but candidate with a million donors doesn't need lobbyist money. He can not be bought. For this reason, he is a dire threat to the entire system.

And that is why, it seems, Obama must be brought down ... even if the whole Democratic Party has to go down with him.

12. I decided that if the disease can't be cured, 2009 is the year I'm going expat
Nowhere is perfect, but I'm going some place where the government is not a war with it citizens.

3. My husband was undecided before Super Tuesday.
He asked me what I was thinking, to convince him why I was voting for Obama.

I pointed out exactly what you just said. That was all the convincing he needed.

6. How about...
Obama/Gore or Obama/Kucinich

Sounds better and breaks free of the Dynasty.

The Dynasty era will also be known as the nations darkest times.
