Giuliani vs Obama. by tucsonmike on 22 February 2007 5:10am
This one I wrestle with. My gut says Obama, my rational side Giuliani.

Giuliani has the proven track record. Obama the vision. (Even if I did start referring to New York City Hall as "Fort Giuliani)."

If Rudy is elected, I want the Sopranos to end on that note...

I will probably vote for Obama, but if Rudy ended up gaining the presidency, I wouldn't be crushed. Giuliani, I believe, started out as a democrat anyway! Also, ever since the way he dealt with 9/11 I've actually been pretty fond of him!

I was going to say something, but now I've forgotten. Oh well... sorry!

All three Repub candidates have been somewhat socially liberal (and when I say that, understand, I mean any degree left of the Evangelical Right). They've all started moving towards that scray religious "values" voting demographic. McCain now wants to reverse Roe vs Wade, Romney is now going back on his Pro-choice, pro-gay marriage stances from not so long ago, and much to my disappointed, I'm starting to catch bits on the news where Guliani is beginning to do the same.

To be honest, I would never vote Republican--but it's looking as if I can't rely on even a social liberal Repub if the Dems don't win. I don't think I can take four to eight more years of the incredible amount of general intolerance we've been experiencing for the last seven. As for Dems...Edwards doesn't thrill me (I still cringe thinking of his 2004 debate with Cheney). I was torn between Obama and Hilary, but as of late, I've been leaning towards Obama. I'm still open though.

KMeadows, I know what you mean about having to endure 4 more years (or even 8 more years at the worst) of Republican legislation, and am disheartened by the fact that the socially liberal republican candidates are leaning more and more to the right.

It should be interesting, that is for sure.

So, I hear that Gore might announce another run during the Oscar's tonight. Thoughts?
Re: Giuliani vs Obama. by sighthound on 25 February 2007 10:14pm
Only if he wins. <G>
Re: Giuliani vs Obama. by Caty on 25 February 2007 10:30pm
hmm... that's rather interesting. I really loved 'An Inconvenient Truth.' We'll have to see who gains the Democratic candidacy.

I would be ok if Gore won, that would give Obama a chance to gain a little more experience.
Re: Giuliani vs Obama. by sighthound on 25 February 2007 10:50pm
Or a Gore/Obama ticket?

And Gore has to stop listening to his handlers who doomed his election prospects before by their insistence that he be "nice" and not confront the government's inaction of environmental issues. Since his last defeat, he's stopped being a "wooden man" and has gotten the old spark back that made him such an attractive candidate years ago.
