42. An easy pledge to keep
Edited on Tue Jan-23-07 08:09 PM by Zodiak Ironfist
This was my intention during this primary season...

I am going to promote Al Gore (and a couple others), but I will not use pejoratives against other candidates nor will I engage in any negative discussion about any of the candidates unless I have a valid reason rooted in policy.

If someone attacks Al with smears and slams, I will calmly refute the claims and point out that the poster does not convince anyone with such tactics.

Does everyone remember the "but Leiberman is 95% progressive" argument that sprouted here on DU during the Senatorial race last year? Man...nothing got my blood boiling more than hearing that talking point, which was wrong on so many levels. I just went in, listed every vote in which Leiberman betrayed the party, and stated that the 95% simply wasn't true. Killed a lot of threads that way. No drama, no attention :evilgrin:
