You think he'll represent the Democratic ticket?

nope, probably not.  too independent minded.

Sadly I don't think he has much of a shot. That said, I think we should nominate him and run with him like he's a sure thing. To hell with competing for the presidency, the Democratic party needs to show the American people that it still stands for something.

I couldn't disagree more, politics is not about standing for something, its about staying in office.  I could care less if the democrats stand for "something" whatever that something is, lets just win some elections, what good will standing for something do?  Honestly, even if you won by standing for something in an election, it wouldn't help you make tough decisions once you were office.  Democrats should run Wesley Clark or antoehr democrat who could win an election.

Um, what good will winning elections do if you don't stand for anything?

you take a firm stance on an issue-so what, within a couple years the most pressing issue of today are in the background.  Besides and most importantly, issues aren't black and white, 99% of time both sides of an issue have some merit-by taking a firm stance you limit your options.  Somebody please list  a few issues you want the democrats to take a stand on- I bet I could counter you by pointing out both sides have sides have some merit on the issue or that there is no practicable way to implement you stance as good as it sounds.

here's one: independent investigative commissions.  Why are Republicans consistently against them, especially with regards to campaign financing, the war on terror, Katrina, and the war in iraq?
