Between the two, I think Obama has less political baggage, a less grating voice, and a better personality.
He has to get more people to start liking him. She has to get more people to stop hating her. :-)

Sweet Home Obama.
Not Helliary. The voice is enough to possibly place billions of men on planet earth into cataonic states therefore ending all war, maybe a good thing, but that's it. And when the aliens invade they'll hear the death screach and return to their home planet and spread the word thru the galaxy, "Don't even go there, run awaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!, snarf, snarf!!!.

I'm actually for Hillary. She's been there before and the country didn't go to pot, like with Bush. (stupid gas prices!) I don't like anything Obama stands for. While Hillary can be a feminist, she is still way less of a threat to the morality of America than Obama is. She is the lesser of the two evils, I think. If I have to choose just between those two. I haven't heard anything "great" from any of the candidates this year, though, to be honest. Though Bush did some awful things, he did do what he said he would during his campaigne that kept me for him. He didn't allow our guns to be taken away from us. (Obama is for having them all taken away) He didn't allow abortion to be legalized nationwide. (Obama is pro-abortion) He was not a gay activist. (Obama is ). Correct me if I have misunderstood anything about Obama, please. You see, I can't say Bush lied during his campaign, but I am sure mad about the way he has handled the war in Iraq and the whole plummet of our economy. I was glad he raised minimum wage. (One of the things he said he would do.) I was glad they did the welfare reform. And I was glad that he wouldn't allow gay marriage to be legal nationwide. I don't believe in discrimination against gay folk, but my christian beliefs will not allow me to be for gay marriages. We are, however, on the verge of a stock market crash., and as a result a recession. I don't need to explain how bad that is.

Between the two I hope Obama. No doubt big world money wants Hillary to finish the hatchet job on the US Bubba began and Algore didn't get to finish so she's hair on fire pull out all stops.

If she (and her handlers) can't control her husband .... then she definitely is NOT capable of controlling the nation.

Spy153, if you're voting dem, these 2 (and Gravel) are all you got. Edwards is gone.

lol, konane, I didn't look at that way. I'll keep that in mind.

Yeah Hilliary need to control Bill like the way George W. Bush controls his drunken daughters and brother Neil Bush. Right?

He's not married to his daughters or brother.

Thanks for asking, Mike. I voted for Hillary Clinton. I wish my vote meant more in Florida. There were times I thought about voting for Obama, but what was said against Bill Clinton changed my mind. I don't care how dirty the race gets, but I want the candidates to stick to the issues. Maybe this isn't a good time for me to post. I just got off the phone with a friend who voted for Obama, but for the wrong reasons IMHO. We all have our opinions but they should be based on issues.

Spry, I know you are younger than I am, but the worst crash I can recall was in the 70s when the Dow fell over 40% between 73-74. We recovered from that. The 70s was also the time of the Arab Oil Embargo. Remember the gas lines? My Dad wanted my Mom to get her driver's license because our government was talking about fuel allocation possibly based on each licensed driver.

Then in the next decade on what is known as Black Monday, in 1987 the Dow fell more than 500 points and we recovered from that. Just like today, everyone talked about the recession. I had purchased a home a few months before that horrible day in October. So that's why my post-menopause brain remembers the date! lol There was also a bad housing slump that followed and by1993 when my company shut my office, prices had fallen dramatically, more than they have in the past 2 years. One thing about history is that it repeats itself. In 2001 the Dow was over 11,000 and in July 2002 slipped to 8,000 and in Sept plummetted and even went below 7,200 in Oct. Then it soared from 2003 to 2007 to over 14,000. Now it's still over 12,600. The nature of the stock market is that it goes up and it goes down. So does the housing market. Some can survive and tough it out and others can't depending on their personal finances, job, etc. In Mar of 2000 the NASDAQ went over 5,000. Then the next quarter it lost over 20% and then went back up during the summer. By Mar 2001 it dipped under 1,400. That was devastating. Now it's over 2,300. Both the Dow & the NASDAQ have increased 75%+ in less than 5 years. Some small & mid cap funds have tripled. What counts is the total increase over time which is why most investors look at stocks and mutual funds as long term investments. If you invest $50,000 which becomes $150,000 and suddenly you lose half of your investment, you still have $75,000 which is 50% more than what you started with. I know you're young, but in 1974 the stock market was 577 points and when I checked today it was hovering around 12,600. That's over 2000%.

My main concern is (of course) Iraq, what's happening to our dollar, the price of food, gas and our jobs. Affordable healthcare is another big issue for me, not necessarily a national health plan. We already have some of those. Whoever gets into office is facing a huge task.

i noticed obama's middle name is hussein and his name rhymes with osama.scary.
justxploringComment by justxploring - January 30, 2008, 4:24 pm
Didn't mean to call you Spry, Spy. :-)    However, I hope you are. LOL Also, I said "you're young twice) Sorry - I'm being redundant today and I'll say that again. (yuck, yuck)
Mike, I was typing when you wrote that last comment. I am thinking the same thing but we have several months to decide. I was planning to move to SC and the 5.9% unemployment rate (4th lowest in the country) is scaring me. That is a state that has been hurt badly by outsourcing.

i think mccain will win the republican nomination.

let me say something about rising prices.a couple years ago i bought a fuel pump and got it bought and put on my Z-28 for around 100 bucks.a couple days ago my van's fuel pump went out and for parts and labor 400 dollars.ridiculous how prices are rising.
justxploringComment by justxploring - January 30, 2008, 5:07 pm
Mike, in Sept 2000 I had a root canal. The price was $350 + $150 for the post.   In Oct 2006 I went to the same dentist and he charged me $768 then added $358 for the post. Maybe I would have had it pulled if I knew it would cost over $1,100, but the written estimate said "total" I thought "so does the $768 include everything?" meant the post. Anyway, when I gasped and said that means the price had more than doubled in 6 years her snooty answer was "so have houses and gas"   I didn't need any, but Publix has 2 for 1 on Maxwell House so bought a lot of coffee this week. From now on I'm getting all the 2-fer items and saving them if not perishable.

It looks like mostly the girls like the girl. I guess they are probably are referring to Helliary's economic prowess with cattle futures. Or "How to make $50,000,000 in eight years, with no credit." and we can't forget "Getting rid of witnesses made easy." Also, "FBI files, all you need to know." and the second volume "Effective IRS audits for retribution" And Best seller: "Become a senator in 9 short months." "Cheating husbands: Who cares, boys will be boys." "Change: It's just a word. But it is change." And we can't forget "Playing the victim can work for you!" "Using just your voice to kill and scare terrorists." "Changing accents on demand." "Fake crying, when your're really angry." "Forgeting made easy, what?"   And finally "Obama ain't %$@$!!!".

More importantly, who do you think will lose the election in November?

The American Public of course!
JAP69Comment by JAP69 - January 30, 2008, 10:56 pm
My opinion goes for democrat and republican candidates.
I do not like any of them now.
Looks like I will need to do a write in vote.
