The possibility that a potential Democratic presidential primary matchup between Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama could lead to a Clinton-Obama ticket is raising concerns in GOP circles that it might be unbeatable. While Democratic strategists are more skeptical of the success of a ticket composed of two minorities, some Republican advisers to the White House and leading 2008 hopefuls Sen. John McCain and Rudy Giuliani see the ticket as an easy winner built on the enthusiasm it would generate in Democratic circles. Their theory is that Clinton would stand a good chance to pick up the states that Sen. John Kerry won in 2004. While not enough to win the election on her own, the addition of Obama would help push closely divided states like Ohio over into the Democratic column, thereby giving the Clinton-Obama ticket the White House.

Nietzsche was not a fag. It was actually Wagner who, after Nietzsche and Wagner split, conducted a relentless and vindictive campaign against Nietzsche on the grounds that he was homosexual. Unless you think Niezsche should have been gay just because he wrote "The Gay Science" (it's "Die Froeliche Wissenschaft" in German btw you'd have to take into account the fact that when Nietzsche first met Richard Wagner in 1869, the magisterial composer was more than twice the age of the fledgling philologist. Wagner had also just been banished from the royal court of Bavaria for his adulterous affair with Cosima von Bülow. Although the friendship between the two men began rather well, it would famously degenerate into a bitter intellectual and emotional feud. The thing is that Wagner was a manipulative jerk and that Nietzsche and Cosima, who both suffered miserably in youth, were psychologically vulnerable to Wagner's seductive but emotionally abusive behavior. He would "advise," for example, in a letter to an homosexual friend to "try to cut down a little, on the pederasty"...
Wagner appears to have been a hell of a lot like law professors.

I hope elipepsy doesn't kill him, but lays him just low enough to linger until we have a Democratic president take office in '09, THEN he takes his well-deserved dirt nap. Roberts is an evil, corrupt, ruthless tool of corporate America and people like him will stop at nothing to grant their masters all kinds of legal goodies via the Supreme Court at the expense of average working Americans. This bastard is helping to build the new Fascist America that we all are currently living in. Wake up people! I hope they get everything coming to them, and moreso.
Roberts is a joke as a Supreme Court Justice, let alone Chief Justice. Frankly, I'd rather see that fat prick, Scalia, bite the big one, but we're not that lucky. Hey, maybe a bunch of those self-important cretins will die prematurely when the Democratic president takes office in 09. Just saying what everyone's thinking. Remember who the enemy is.
If only the solution could be a Democratic president!

Oh please, do you think Hillary is better? I mean, take a look at her face when she talks -- you can easily tell when what she's saying is something she's does not really believe in simply by observing her facial expressions. She's not that good at body language lying. The one public person that has absolute mastery over her body language is Oprah -- she'll just not let out anything she doesn't want to get out.
Here it is an interesting piece on body language lyinghttp://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/students/index.php/topic,5331.msg62288.html#msg62288

Hill has had a lot of extracurriculars ... but no genius there ...
Well, as far as a politician is concerned, that's what it really matters -- being socially active, having people skills -- you don't have to an intellectual genius to get into, and be successful, in politics.
