131. yeah, i suppose ...
where were all my buddies when i said earlier i didn't like Clark's speech ??? :hi:

i have complimented DU Clark supporters before ... i find that, overall, they are respectful of those who disagree on policy or strategy ... and i often value the analysis they provide even though i disagree with Clark's failure to call for PEACE NOW ... there are a few who are strong supporters of Kerry and Dean who are equally respectful ... they understand that my criticisms of their candidates are based on policy disagreements ... but i find that, at least on DU, many Dean and Kerry supporters are very quick to label those who disagree with them as "haters" or Nader-lovers, disruptors, freepers, nay-sayers or some other inappropriate label ... frankly, i'm sick of their little enforcement squads ...

even from a political perspective, i can't understand what these candidate supporters hope to accomplish ... if they are not going to allow others to disagree, even very strongly disagree, how do they hope to influence "new recruits" to support their candidate??? the "my guy" is always right crowd just doesn't cut it with me ...

thanks, for your comment though ... i really do appreciate it ... :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi:
