18. I don't know all the congressmen but
Edited on Wed Jun-23-04 02:43 AM by holyrollerdem
coming from Indiana and knowing Evan Bayh, I definitely think he is. I also wonder about Gebhardt with his support for the war. Edwards sees justification in the war as well. Even Hillary Clinton voted for the war, too, as well as Kerry. They just would've gone about it in a different way.

Yes, I think Zell Miller and Lieberman are good candidates as well!

There are a lot who are in the good 'ole boys network. That's not to say I wouldn't vote anyone other than Kerry as I think he at least upholds things like better healthcare, veterans benefits, civil rights, the environment and many other Democrat stances. I'm just a little leary about why so many of our Democratic leaders support the war so much. I understand we have interests but I don't advocate corporate world dominance and imperialism over the expense of average human lives in any country.

on edit: I think our Dem leaders are less neoconistic but still they have tendencies. I believe that's why we need to stay on them after they get into their offices. I think there are many unknown insiders who influence the direction of a lot of things that go on in congress and in the White House. Lobbyists, too.

on edit again: Even Bill Clinton advocated NAFTA etc. without considering labor and environmental rights. That kind of bothers me although I loved having him as my president.
