Thank God the news services have removed that pesky primary bullshit the elections go through every four years and have just declared who the Democrats will be running.

:sarcasm:

1. This keeps cropping up over and over again even after
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 09:29 AM by Dhalgren
Senator Clinton has repeatedly said that she will not run for President. Why don't all of these people believe her? I take her at her word - she isn't going to run.

3. They love to speculate - the fewer facts they have to gather
the better. This is why they love that missing blonde woman in Aruba -- the story doesn't develop (no new facts come out) so they can just sit and speculate wildly. I have actually seen them have a guest on and when the guest refuses to join in to their wild speculation orgy, they just start to ignore them.

Much cheaper than covering news.

4. This is what I'm saying!
I like this guy, Tasini:

Why do I have to accept that Hillary is annointed. I remember when we used to have elections.

6. I will be so amused if Hillary doesn't even run.
The talking heads will sit there like goldfish, with their mouths moving, but so astonished that they can't get any words out.

8. at online journal, bev conover, the editor has this to say about our
rigged voting system. (snip)

"Elections, for most people, used to be a relatively simple thing. They took a paper ballot into a voting booth and penciled an X next to the names of the candidates they favored. The paper ballot was then dropped into a locked box. At the end of the voting day, the box was opened and the votes were counted one by one. Most states even allowed the public to witness the counting.

Sure, it was slow and, depending on the length of a ballot, the election board workers tended to gripe. For the voters, though, election nights used to be filled with anticipation and excitement as the results trickled in. So the question comes down to do we want accurate and honest vote counts or fast and crooked vote counts?

If it's fast and crooked, stay with easily rigged computers. If it is accurate and honest, demand a return to paper ballots, which make it much harder to steal a statewide, congressional or presidential election. "

you'll find the whole article at www.onlinejournal.com

15. glory!
would she want to write about those experiences? Or, would you like to write from your memory what it was like for her?

AMERICA NEEDS SOMETHING TO WAKE IT UP ... and your mom's experiences of those glory days may be one of the things that begins to melt down the wall of repression and vote stealing the bushes have created!

12. No that is Friday Night.
They keep talking about Hillary so that people will get sick of her. That is the strategy. She is running for the Senate now and that is a fact. that anger and brittle bit is just the vehicle to down grade her. I hope she beats the pants off that woman who is running in NY. Don't be mislead. If they want anger and brittle take a hard look at bush and McCain. They are both spoiled brats and very very temper tantrum driven.

13. I think it's hilarious . . . let's "run" Hillary
and let them spend all their money attacking her . . . and let a candidate actually come up.

Remember, Bill Clinton was overshadowed by Perot until the Ferengi Party Candidate decided to shoot himself in the foot in 1992 . . .

"I'm in. I'm out. I'm in again . . ."
