Obama is a strong enough candidate to win outright for the Democrats without the need of a ringer like Santorum, Palin or Gingrich on the Republican side.  If you are worried that Romney will win the primary then I see the need to cheer for the less viable candidates.  That appears to be Julie's hope.  Is this the same for you? I understand the worry too, because of Obama's lofty promises back in 08.  He has had 4 years and much of the electorate are upset over the stilted status quo.  Now, I'm playing the devil's advocate here but Romney is a successful businessman, was the Governor of Massachusetts and is a moderate.  If the economy continues to remain stagnant with only marginal improvement the fickle electorate might get a case of incumbent-itis.  When George H. Bush lost the election in 1992 a third party candidate who was a businessman took 19% of the popular vote.  The economy was in shambles in 92' and some thought it needed a business approach.  Something to consider, no?

Santorum is stuck in his own past and still fighting demons--social issues are not where the electorate is thinking.  That Kennedy slight was plain stupid.  This guy is scary and thankfully, I don't think he stands a chance.

I understand the theory of trying to present a case to reverse a Pardon (in theory) it just bugs me that they have to stay in jail while waiting to see if the state (which should be the one carrying the burden of proof to overturn) will reverse it or not. In a Parole hearing sure, but I see it as a violation of Due Process. I guess it just shows truth to the old laymen saying "possession is 9/10 of the law" If they possess your ass still, they still can act like they own it, untill they chose not to. Easier to justify a "not released" then a "brought back in". Easier for the TV news viewing audience to digest I guess. To me baloney is baloney whatever the flavor, but when politicians(oops I meant judges and attorney generals) who are elected or appointed by those elected want to stay in public favor........well, don't you know that court cases should be held on American Idol commercials for vote ins between the parts of our society that really matter?

That's funny about possession, but a person is not an object. 

Giants did it. woohoo!

Pardoning should be the end of it.  President Clinton pardoned and got chastised for it.  Bush pardoned and took the heat for scooter Libbey.  Ford was the one who took the most scrutiny; it cost him another term.

It is a shame that both evangelicals and the mainstream media want to make Romney's religion an issue.  You would think that in this day and age that would be irrelevent.

I think that the ravens and 49ers will win. But I am hoping the giants come through.
