Ok, All You Dean Supporters
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 06:11 PM by nomaco-10
Are you all "warned" and "stifled" yet? I think not, I know I'm not, if anything I'm just that more resolute that Dean is the guy for me. Dean and Clark strike a cord all through out the democratic party that the other candidates just can't seem to match. You've got a hard driving, tell it like it is, grass roots campaigner in Dean. A retired General who's a Rhode scholar, degrees in political philosophy and economic policies and has a refreshingly RATIONAL view of military strategy. If there is a god, he will pair this duo up for 2004 and kick this corrupt, political corporate dictatorship out on their asses in 2004.
Kucinich is a great guy with an honest approach to politics and a comprehensive approach to economic and ecological policies, but he's considered out of the mainstream and he's not gonna get the nod, we all know that. Graham is a politician with experience, humanity and a heart, Carteresque, if you will, but Carter's style of politics didn't serve him well when up against the cut throat style of the republican shills, and unfortunately in our present political climate, Graham seems a little timid...and he will not get the nod. Sharpton and Mosely-Braun, I could listen to both of them speak all day long, they embody the spirit of the democratic party, but let's get real, they will not get the nod. Edwards, young, bright, full of enthusuiasm, but lacks the real experience that many democrats know we must have in this race because the stakes are just too high this go around, maybe another go for him in the future, he will not get the nod. Kerry. Kerry, Kerry, Kerry... Don't count him out just yet. I am not thrilled with his vote for the war resolution nor his subsequent efforts to justify it, but this very stance makes him more mainstream than any of us here would ever like to admit, atleast that's how I see it outside this very liberal think tank we call DU. If he's the nominee, I will vote for him. Gephardt, again not thrilled with his vote on the war resolution and even less charmed that he took advantage of a photo op in the Rose Garden with Lieberman and Daschle to stand along side bush* after the signing of said document. Gephardt lacks that all important quotient we have come to expect of our candidates since William Jefferson Clinton took the campaign train in 1991, charisma. Bill set the bar pretty high and Gephardt can't even get close. That leaves one more candidate, Lieberman, where do I begin? I think it's safe to say that holy Joe's got about as much chance of getting the nomination as I do posing for the cover of Vogue. If by some insane fluke he did get the nod for a run in 2004, I'd have to rethink my entire political philosophy and move to a friendly, foreign country, if in fact there are any left.
I'm more excited about the upcoming 2004 election than ever. We have some exceptional candidates who really represent the very best of the democratic party. Due to the process of elimination, we will end up with a fine candidate no matter how you look at it and I will be proud to say I am a democrat in 2004 and beyond.
I want to put this nightmare behind me that is evil incarnate and called the bush* administration. Dean or Clark or Dean/Clark or Clark/Dean, Kerry, Graham, Gephardt, Edwards, whatever, one thing I promise you all, if it's not one or more of my candidates, I will support the nominee and you can rest assured I never did anything to harm or harrass yours during the process. My concsience is clear on this.
