I'm sure he's a great guy, but I think it would be a travesty for him to run. Simply put, the man ain't got no expereince. Peer pressure is a mutha . . . The man ain't got no experience runnin' a country, city, state, *&^%, he ain't even ran a bake sale!




Not exactly a prerequisite.  Especially when you consider the BAD experience demonstrated by the former Governor of Texas at both the State and National levels.

The Force is strong in this one.


(PS, when are you running for office Mr. Sands?) ;D

3. Obama should run with Oprah. Laugh now, but that ticket would be incredible.

Someone's been reading The Atlantic Monthly.

haha, no way dude.  I've been saying this for at least a year now.  Think about it.  Who could say a bad thing about Oprah?  All she does is try to make life better for people.

I've been saying it for a long time, too. Oprah at the top of the ticket. That's why I noticed it in TAM. I'm very disturbed that we agree on something.

haha, nice one. :D

1. Republicans cannot honestly raise an objection to Obama's credentials; they elected George W. Bush with zero national political experience and no understanding of foreign policy.

Republicans have a way of raising objections and seeing where it leads.  They will.

2. Obama could win, but not with Hillary.  She is just too polarizing.

Premise: the Republicans run on values.  Reality: every Democrat is now polarizing. 

3. Obama should run with Oprah. Laugh now, but that ticket would be incredible.

To whom?  Subtract the novelty factor and then what? 

4. The war in Iraq should be the focus of this election, but the Republicans have screwed it up so badly, that there is no way to get out without either looking weak and/or setting Iraq up for disaster. 

It's simple really.  Change directions.  The only antidote to insurgency is an increased quality of life for the populace. Period.  Do that.  Make that the priority and Iraq will come together on its own.

1. If Republicans do raise that objection, then Dems should point to "W"

2. I'm just saying that something about her really irks conservative Americans; She might as well be the embodyment of gay marriage and abortion.

3. Oprah has charisma and the trust of everyone that watches her show.  Subtract the novelty factor and you have a candidate with much more substance than Reagan and Arnold put together

4. How does one increase the quality of life while there are bombs and sectarian violence threatening life itself?

Are you telling me George W. Bush had foreign policy experience?  Come on, the President doesnt have to be a genius, just look at "W", shoot, he doesnt even have to be able to speak English, again look at "W".  For that matter, the President can be a total moron and people will still reelect him. See "W".

Republicans argue that al Qaeda and other terrorists should be held indefinitely so they cannot attack the US.  BUT this belies the fact that these people are only accused of being terrorists, and have been denied due process to determine the truth of that accusation.  It boggles my mind that people could be so short sighted.


PS the idea that something, anything, is warranted until the end of the war on terror, is giving it permission to last forever because the war on terror will never end.  see War on Drugs.

See the rebuttal to that is that it only denies ALIENS review in  federal courts, but I find this unpursuasive because human beings deserve due process.  That is, no one should be locked up forever upon a mere suspicion of wrong doing, but should be tried.  A US military tribunal for SUSPECTED terrorists seems inherently and uncurably biased.

Well?  Has anyone heard of this?  Is due process a right that should be extended to people ACCUSED of terrorism?

Gonna throw a fit if USC goes to the championship over some of these teams...

The SEC really does get screwed.

SC hasn't played much of their schedule yet. I bet they lose at least 2 games in Nov. (Cal, Oregon, ND)

And the SEC does get pretty screwed...although if Auburn had just beaten Arkansas, we wouldn't think so.

True enough, True enough. I still feel a lot for LSU after 2003. They never should have been forced to share their Title with USC; especially when USC lost to an unranked Cal and LSU lost to a No. 19 Florida AND beats No. 11 Georgia in the SEC Championship.


I hope they repeal the new clock and move to a four team play off next year.  :-\

Dont focus all your hate on USC; We spanked a very good UM team in the Rose Bowl that year.

And if USC is undefeated after whipping Arkansas in their own crib (sorry b10),  beating Oregon, Cal and ND, then USC shouldnt be in the championship game?  that would be total bs
