SPAN alert - Gary Hart to discuss religious fundamentalism - On now
I have always like Gary Hart, and his public comments are always very sage and insightful. This is on SPAN 2 Book TV now, 11:05 EST.

1. He has a Divinity degree, doesn't he?
I think this guy would have been a great President. Too bad the GOP slime machine got him.

18. Gary Hart destroyed himself
Edited on Sat Feb-25-06 10:44 AM by Johnyawl

he was 20% points ahead of Bush, Sr. in the polls when he dared the media into following him, and then went and spent a weekend on a boat with Donna Rice.

It breaks my heart to see him, and listen to him talk. He's smart, charismatic, and dammit, he should have been President! Had he won in '88 our world would be a much different place.

21. I think he destroyed himself by
daring the media to follow him. Good man, but not too smart in certain areas.

22. at the end he brought that up
He said he keeps seeing articles saying that he did that, but it's a lie, he never did.

23. I only go with what I read.
And they did have that picture of him, on the boat, with (I forget the name)her on his lap. One thing, she was a "looker."

15. Last I checked, there were 40 evil dictators in the world
if it's our job to depose them, how do we choose? do we just choose the ones who have our oil under their sand?

Bam!

20. Why can't current Dem candidates talk like Gary?
He doesn't run away from the "Faith & Values" crowd, he confronts them with their hypocracy!

25. maybe because he has the theological background
that supports his cred on th subject. But I completely agree with you.
