Edited on Thu Feb-01-07 07:02 PM by zonkers
the nomination. Besides her war chest and her big dog connection , what does she have going for her? A short stint in the senate? (on edit)I don't like the idea one bit. Not now. And don't get me wrong -- I like Hillary.

1. Gore/ANYONE is a winning ticket
Edited on Thu Feb-01-07 07:06 PM by LSparkle
The guy is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and will hopefully be an Academy Award winner by the time the election rolls around. Plus, best resume in the field. Hands down, we can run him with anyone and I think he'd win. (Well, not Joe-mentum ... )

3. The media will trash any Democrat; Gore would be smashed every day by
every network and by every late-night show endlessly. I respect him, trust him, like him and think he is the brightest individual available as a candidate. The media controls too much when it comes to presidential politics.

5. The attacks would seem stale, though
"Been there, done that." What NEW stuff could they dredge up about him this time that wasn't thrown at him in 2000?

2. I think some of the best and the brightest stay away from politics
The potential of unfairly being the target of "politics of personal destruction" turns many talented people away. Who wants to subject their family to any of this? But, I guess that's all part of the process of weeding out the tough and strong.

4. I agree. Let's face it: Ms. Clinton is anything but a progressive. Her long support for the war has
pissed many of us off. ABC -- Anyone But Clinton for the '08 bid. (Almost anyone, of course.)

7. Gore couldn't beat Bush...that tells me all I need to know,
Gore was a really lousy candidate and I see no reason to believe that it would be different this time around.

11. Gore DID beat Bush
He won the popular vote and, had the ballot in Florida been counted, he would have won the electoral as well.

8. How do you know this? Hillary gets more votes than polling points.
I was in political polling for eight years.

And you don't know who the reps will nominate.

Think of a more valid way to criticize her.

10. I have to agree with zonkers, here...
She is UNELECTABLE. Even most Dems wouldn't waste a vote on her. Too polarizing, too well connected, too corporately funded, and she has that embarrassing voting history, as well as too many easy scandal-handles for the 'Pubs.

Gore/Pretty Much ANYONE sounds good to me...I think Obama should bide his time, however, as I believe it MUST surely come...2012 or 2016, perhaps. He just does not hve enough experience to gain enough support.

17. ALL the poll findings to date disagree with you
She's still leading...everywhere. All of these anyway. I'm sure there are more (somewhere) with someone else leading.

12. Richardson said he will not be a second banana
So I guess we'll have to draft him along with Gore

18. And Obama said he wouldn't run.
Politicians always say wacky things about running.
