Actually, I was just challenging the logic of his question, something you just wouldn't understand.

If good speechifying was all it took, we'd have any-old grade-B actor as president.

We tried that once -- it worked for me.

RE: If anyone could be president who would it be?

the irony is that Reagan was anything but, 'any old grade B actor'. He had spent a lifetime in politics as a union member and leader, governor, prodigious letter-writer, and tireless speaker on issues in which he believed. Yeah, he had a pretty smile and pleasant demeanor but he was sure as hell a lot more than that or he'd never gotten in. Twice.

I agree -- I was actually named after him -- no kidding.

Hey john, I don't think Oprah feels obligated to make a run for President. She gives alot as it is.

Plus, I would bet the oposition, whoever it would be, would find some dirt on her that might not be flattering. But heck, if a drunk and drug abuser with a wife that killed her own HS boyfriend with her car can end up in the White House, it seems like just about anyone could get there heh?

That aside, this gay man really loves black women for some reason and I could really get enthusiastic supporting Oprah Winfrey for POTUS.

I wish Barbara Jordan was still alive and kicking, she was my idol. James Earl Jones trapped in a woman's body. If anyone made a movie about Barbara Jordan, James Earl Jones could play the role in drag and be totally believable.

Rudy!

He's the man. Look for him in '08.

He's liberal on certain social issues, stem cell research, etc. and a hawk on terrorism.

Bush will win this election, if he doesn't and Kerry wins I think the next large attack on the US will push the electorate far to the right for years.

What's this obsession for Obama, he gives one speech and you guys are in love?
Let me get this straight - we suffer the largest terrorist attack in history while Republicans are in office, but an attack will only occur if a Democrat is elected? How does that make any sense at all?
I think you oversimplify things. Bush was in office 8 months when 9-11 happen. From the posts I've read of yours you're either unwilling or unable to look at things objectively and without your bias. I'm biased, but I often times can and do put those biases aside for the sake of arguement. Okay, back to my argument, most people realize that Clinton did nothing for 8 years in the face of terrorism, the first WTC, Embassy bombings, Somolia (not terrorism, but against Islamo-crazies) USS Cole, etc. So the fact that 9-11 happen on Bush's watch meant little in the eyes of "most" Americans. Even today in the latest polls, over 60% (and even up to 70% in some polls) of Americans feel that Bush will keep America safer than would John Kerry. Hell, even Putin said last week that "Terrorism will get stronger if Bush is not relected." I know that you don't see this, but this is what "most" people believe, by the numbers I just meanted that even about 20% of Kerry voters believe this to be true as well.

On a slightly related subject, check out this article written by Col. David Hackworth in 2000. Hackworth is a retired, but now a talking head on a number of Cable shows. Aside from the Nostradomus type feel, the response of the nation, after Gore and the first hypothetical would be the response if Kerry were to win and we were to have another large attack during his term.

You somehow overlook the fact that Bush was ignoring the rising threat levels, and could have stopped 9-11 if he had paid attention by simply having the airlines close the cockpits.

Bush was asleep at the wheel, and you have to blame somebody else so your man doesn't look so bad. Too late.
