But how she went about it even she says was fatally flawed. I think it was stupidly done. Bill says she is the brains in the family. That one at least showed none of it.

I voted for her in the primaries because I knew healthcare was going to neeed the mandate to get through congress.

Deezus is correct. I looked at Hillary's handling of health care reform and considered her incompetent to lead. She did not even try to involve stake holders and she admits that is part of the reason it flopped. I think it showed really bad skills. Contrast that with Obama modeling his bipartisan Cabinet after George Bush, Sr.'s like an executive board - built on skills they had not party affiliations. If you read more widely you would know this.

Deezus is also correct that Hillary is very polarizing. In comparison, early on some say that Obama tried too hard to be moderate and "reach across the aisle." OWS thinks he is right of center even if you do not.

DEEZUS says:
no he hasn't.

he still has very high positives.

(btw, the term Choomer makes you look like you've had head trauma)

Hilary has extremely high negatives. That's why he beat her. She's a good candidate and I think would've made a good President...

but people HATE her.

Obama became a viable candidate at the 2004 convention. After he spoke people were like "who the hell was that? that dude is gonna be the first black President".

MacHeath - It had to do with looking at candidate positions and solutions offered. Looking at Huckabee and Obama in www.OnTheIssues.Org for instance, there is absolutely no illusion who had the more thought out plan of action going back up to 10 years in quoted speeches. This is the level of research some of us do before voting. I challenge you to have the courage to look at the above website and compare.

Not bad, Cap. Not bad at all.

ok

I suppose you know what people were thinking even though they tell you something different.

You wanna know why he won?

George

Walker

Bush

Nope. And I respected McCain, but was horrible disappointed with the way he cow-towed to the most extreme of his party.

It seems the only one who said he did vote for Obama because he's black is Don. Who wants to guess that's not true?

You're right of course DEEZ.

No.

To MacHealth, I researched every candidate in OnTheIssues.Org and even viewed many Ron Paul and Huckabee YouTubes. It had nothing to do with race. It had to do with looking at candidate positions and solutions offered. Looking at Huckabee and Obama for instance, there is absolutely no illusion who had the more thought out plan of action going back up to 10 years in quoted speeches. This is the level of research some of us do before voting. I challenge you to have the courage to look at the above website and compare.

Don's perceptions of *other people* should not count towards your poll here. There is no way to separate his personal bias from his perceptions in such matters.

he wasn't the first not Jesse Jackson black guy to run. Why haven't any other black people from either party had any success at all, whatsoever if it was his blackness that got him the job?
