Hilliary is the best choice for president, not for herself alone but for the brain trust she would bring into the white house. Plus Bill Clinton has alot of pull overseas and in being able to get things done. Unlike the current admin of Bush whitehouse. Condi is not respected at all, and would be a bad choice for president. S
Cause with the cabinet of Hilliarys it be Bills old one. The same one that worked with a Republican congress and had a surplus budget. If he were to bring back some of the first Bush cabinet, it be strong. But not sure for they be up in age, as already Sears has been brought in to help bail the failed policys of this current cabinet.
Condi Rice, the world does not respect her as Secretary of the State, she be a clone of Bush and well another four more years of instead of true governing, partism politics. Gee with six years of controling both Executive and Legistrative branchs. The republicans sure have managed not to get anything done.
I see myself as a independant, both convservative and liberal in views. I think a more sensible middle of the road candidate that is willing to listen to both sides to get best is what is needed.
Hillaryy is a very bad choice for President. The Republucan base hates her with a passion. Her bid to nationalize 1/7 of the US economy (Hillary health care) when she wasn't elected to any office then, and her voting record since then has not endeared her to them. A large number of left/Democrates dislike her too. If she did get elected (Goddess fordbid it) and brought back her husband's Cabinet, I'm not sure they would do well. Within the first few months of Clinton being inogurated he raised taxes. He also waffled on national security enough to make many people wary of him, plus he is a documented lier of epic proportion.
The surplus was a projected one only. It never existed on anything other than paper. As for working with a Republican Congress, that was bunk. The Reps controlled the House, not the Senate, for most of his term in office. He vetoed many things, including several which were sent to him several times before he signed them, like Welfare reform that really is working. He also let OBL slip by and ignored the many years of constant attacks by OBS.
Condi, as was Colon, is the President's mouth piece. He selects the Secutary of State, not Congress, as the Depatrtments are the President's to run.
And honestly, i dont think that those who voted for Bush would vote a woman into presidency. They're the same kind of people who vote for the right to bear arms (which is a very outdated idea...back in the 1700's you had to watch out for Indians, Outlaws, and were often in your towns Militia. These days, none of those are an issue), and are the kind of people who would rather kill gay people then let gay people get married. AKA rednecks and the like.
If any of you have seen a detailed map showing who voted for who in the last election, all those in big cities or with in the general area of a city voted for Kerry (even Washington DC voted for Kerry) while Bush mainly got those living in rural areas, religious fanatics, and gun wielding rednecks.
And Bush still won. Bush got more votes than Clinton ever did on both of his elections. The Right to bear arms is not outdated. The ones trying to remove that right are the ones who do not want their populatiuon armed and able to defend itself. Every time a crime or a accident involving a gun happens, one ofn the first things I hear about is how more laws need to be passed restricting guns for people. The criminals do the crime and the innocents and legal law abiding citizens are the ones to pay for it with more laws and restrictions.
You mischaracterize the people who voted for Bush to. I voted for Bush, and I am a transgendered bi-sexual woman. I do not want to kill gays. I support gay marriage. I support stem cell research of all types. I support many non-'Republican' things, but I do support them on Nat Security, the Bill of Rights, tax laws and other things.
Elandra is correct, the right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment) is an important one. If that is taken away, soon others would be, like the Freedom to practice your religion and free speech among them.
