Can you believe the only one that is worth two cents the Democrats don't want?

Joe Lieberman
Al Gore's running mate in 2000's contest, Lieberman is the most hawkish of the nine candidates and probably stands as much chance as any of them of becoming president. Won rave reviews for his performance in 2000 but now, at 60, this earnest conservative may have trouble generating enthusiasm. He is a deeply religious Orthodox Jew who dislikes sex and violence in films and supports the war on terrorism.

The only good Democrat didn't run for president--Georgia Senator Zell Miller, USMC '54-58, Sgt., 10th Marines

Ya'll listen up. The CLINTON'S run the democratic party...okay?
They ain't gonna let Kerry or anyone else get into office. Why? Cause then in 2008, Hillary would have to run against the incumbent Prez. Mark my words, if I'm wrong? I'll eat at a greasy spoon......The EAGLE HAS SPOKEN.

kentmitchell: True, only he wasn't running, I was talking about the ones that put their hats in the ring at first.

BigEagle6: You may be right, but I don't think that John F. Kerry really gives a sh!t about the Clinton's, He has Ted Kennedy behind him Ted like his name J.F.K., get it?

You may well be right. Clinton and their organization backed Wesley Clark, and he's out of it. Maybe they backed him, hoping he would get the nomination, while knowing he didn't stand a chance of winning the general election in Nov. That would leave it open for Hilary to run against GW in '08. Now, they face a conundrum. Kerry stands a good chance of winning, and there's no way Hilary will run against an incumbent Democrat in 08. I'm guessing theClinton's are hoping Kerry barely loses, and she will run in '08. If Kerry wins, she may run as an independant or start a new party. Heard scuttlebutt to that effect anyway. How old will she be in 2008 anyway?

Joe Lieberman was the only Democrat halfway toward being middle of the road. He tarnished himself in the 2000 race by having to kowtow to Al Gore's agenda. He is the only one who actually stood by his voting record in this election.

The only other honest man was Howard Dean. Love him or hate him, he spoke his mind, even with his historical screech. I give him credit for sticking it out as long as he did, against all odds. He went on until his campaign machine fell apart beneath him. That took guts.

If Senator Zell Miller had run, then the entire race would be up for grabs. He is one democrat I would consider for the job of President. But he didn't run, so its merely speculation.

Well, I have to agree that he is the best of the bunch if you don't mind the fact that he is Pro Abortion, ie---a pro baby killer.

That's only one strike against him, at least the Republicans could have worked with him, what difference does it make George W. going to be reelected isn't he?

Are you being funny; what has Clinton to do with this? He served two terms, remember?

But remember, his wife didn't. Or did she? Was it really two for one?

oh I don't know,, I think if she wanted to run she'd run this year,,,, just my opinion......

as for Liebermann,, I think he's a good man but I wonder about his "electibility",,, it took almost 200 years to elect a Catholic to the White House... not sure someone of the Jewish faith would be elected ( and no I am not being anti-Semetic,, just my opinion)

SheWolf, I don't think the fact that he is Jewish has anything to do with his bid for President. He's been tied to Gore, that's enough to do him in.

Loved the Dollar Store/Hillary Book picture. Where did you find it?

I wonder if anyone has clued Herman Munster in on the fact that he is supposed to lose to GW Bush this time. He has to get with the program, or it will blow Hillary's chances in 2008.
