Okay. There's another thread similar to this so let's do the poll.

Just for one minute, pretend you're a Democrat and you voting in the primaries. And your only choices are Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. How do you vote?

I "voted" for Obama. But....if I was a Democrat, I would probably really want to vote for the craziest most radical of the two. And we know who that is.

If they lined up just right, one shot could probably get them both.

:eek:

Just kidding, just kidding. :evil:

Well, let's see... Both are socialist gun hating bigots - as far as our right to arms, one is as bad as the other. Obama at least appears to be the more moderate of the two, so it seems he would be more electable than Frau Clinton.

If I were a myopic leftist/Democrat/socialist, I suppose I would vote for Obama as he has the better chance of being elected and achieving the leftist/Democrat/socialist goals of:

1 - Continuing to attack and gut the Second Amendment.

2 - Making America more vulernable to terrorist attack.

3 - Cutting and running from the war on terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan - like cowards.

4 - Throwing open even more wide the gates of unlawful immigration, which would

5 - Aid terrorists in infiltrating our borders and bringing in weapons of mass destruction.

6 - Ensure that the working people of America would have to pay for the needs of unlawful immigrants who pay nothing for their own health care and other needs.

7 - Give the UN power over American citizens and the ability to levy taxes on American citizens, in violation of the Constitution.

8 - Give the UN the power to force gun confiscation on the American people, in violation of the Constitution.

9 - Giving the UN the power to try U.S. soldiers for war crimes, in violation of the Constitution.

If I were a Democrat, then I'd vote for one of the two.

But then again, if I were the King of All Londonium I'd wear a shiny hat.

Barack is a classic BS-man with excellent public speaking skills. There's not much "there" there, if you ask me. Of course this is America, land of leased BMWs and 125% mortgages, so voters in Blue States might just "relate."

Hillary works hard behind the scenes to accomplish things that are, IMO, downright evil, and she's willing to play dirty to do it.

So, were I a leftie Democrat, I'd vote for Hillary, who is a committed authoritarian Socialist with skills.

Were I a center-left Democrat, I'd vote for Barack, because he might have a chance of winning.

As me, a South Park Republican (actually a registered and formerly active Libertarian who thinks that this isn't the time to screw around), I'm not sure.

Hillary would mobilize her opposition like no one since Abraham Lincoln, who of course saw half the country secede. 90% chance she'd lose, except against a really lousy Republican candidate like Senator RINO, AZ.

Barack, on the other hand, would be a relatively innocuous Democrat. If I'm going to have an enemy to fight, I'd rather it be a relatively weak, preppie politician with a smile and a suit than someone who actually has the wherewithal to be an enemy.

Maybe I'm underestimating Obama, but he was a Senator. It would be hard to underestimate ANY Senator's character and abilities, just like it would be hard to underestimate the postgraduate-level math skills of your average pop singer.

Now either way, Senators don't become President, generally. It could happen, if it were a Senator vs. Senator race. But otherwise, the odds are against it. Generally, Senators are bloviating BS artists, and do not show leadership qualities. That bodes poorly for an Executive candidate. Parliamentary systems work quite differently, and the PM generally doesn't have the same powers as the President of the US, either.

At least we know what Hillary is.

Young Obama strikes me a scary grinning well spoken puppet.

Who know what arm lies up yonder butt pulling the strings.

So, I vote for hiding in the hills.

Hillary nope
Barack - Don't know enough about him other than he's very well spoken and thought to be a contender to Ford Jr. but don't think he's ready to hold that office just yet.

Who knows it's all a mockery anyway

I tell you what, I'd rather see one of them in office than McCain or Giuliani :uhoh:


Anyway, I voted Hillary because I think Barack would be harder to beat.

On a side note, am I the only one who pictures this when they hear Barak Obama's name?

I would take Barack over Hillary, and any Republican contender in 2008. I have a strange feeling I won't be voting in the 2008 election.

i think this two party system is beyond repair. a career politician is a career politician is a career politician....no matter the shade. i would never give a vote to someone as soulless as hillary clinton, but i actually hope she gets elected. i also hope she has a nice demo-majority in both houses. maybe with such an extreme imbalance, and such a vile character in office, things will be brought to a head in this country. i'm tired of the slippery slope in regard to our rights being compromised; i would almost welcome a shift toward government just flat out trying to flagrantly rip them away. it would make easier to respond appropriately.

If you vote for either you are going to be voting for both. Barak will be the VP candidate.

I agree 100%. I say bring the battle now. I want to vote for the biggest, flaming liberal in Washington. I want to see a all sociali...um....Democratic government. That way every fence setters ideas about how great that would be will see the light. Just imagine U.N charters that apply their laws here in America, Illegal imigrants comming over by the bus load, and of course door to door gun confiscation. "Hey hope you rembered to file your yearly U.N tax" will become a common phrase. U.K style gun laws anyone? You can help your kids at night with their mandatory Spanish lessons.
