Taking a quick glance at the poll should point you somewhat in the correct direction.




I think the winner will be Obama. Mccain simply doesn't have the money and the democrats have the "blame everything on George Bush" line in their favor and many Americans are buying it. It's difficult to run as an incumbent to a party who's leader has been fairly unpopular. The fact that Mccain's numbers are as high as they are (compared to George Bush's approval ratings) is quite a feat in and of itsself.

Personally I don't think either candidate will really be all that much of a "disaster" for America as some members on BF make them out to be. If Obama is similar to Bill Clinton with his policies, then I don't think we'll be off all that bad. If he happens to be a screw up, he'll be kicked out of office in 2012, and the pendulum will once again swing in the Neocons' favor.

Edit: Both got a decent foreign policy, which is really all that matters to me

IMHO, The thing to be more concerned about are the seats in Congress. We could very well have and influx of defeatist liberal shmucks like Al Franken elected, which could be dangerous for this country. And there's a possibility that the Dems being in solid control of both congress and the presidency may result in them being able to pass whatever legislation they want, so perhaps the Clinton comparison may fail in that regard. We'll just have to wait and see.

But these 2 guys are just meh... not too bad.

I don't know about the nation, but Obama wins Michigan. As Detroit goes, so goes the state and Detroit votes how the unions tell them to vote.

I always laughed when the pundits would say that Michigan was in play this time around. Someday we'll get right to work passed and things might change, but until then nothing changes in our state politics.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” - C.S.

Asking a forum full of teenagers and young adults to vote on the Presidential race is HIGHLY unrepresenative of the American populace. Young people favor Obama by an overwhelming majority. Young people are mostly ignorant of issues that pertain to real life.

Old people often give information regardless of whether or not someone asked for it. Give him a break...

and old people are often grouchy and concerned with young people getting off their lawn. they also generally lose touch with reality. fyi: there's been a growing support of obama with the older folks you're talking about.

I'd be surprised if Obama didn't win, it's not outside the realm of possibility. Though I just don't think it would be that likely. It seems after an 8 year Rep or Dem presidency the next in line is the opposite, so Obama is good bet.

I didn't read the post, only the title. And this is what I get for it.....old jokes.

Not that I don't love old jokes....but when I'm really old, I'll remember this as a preemptive attack on my impending senility. Or maybe I won't remember it....which will be nice, because I'll have my Jello and all will be right with the world.

I could say the same about old people who spend their time on a forum full of teenagers and young adults...

but I won't because I dont like making judgements about people based on their age.

(No offense Nuts. Its just that generalizations don't become you.)
