    I can't believe I am saying this, but Lieberman actually appears the least smarmy of the group. Not that any of them are better than Bush, even with all his many faults.

    Rock Jock, I know how you feel. Lieberman seems to be the only adult in the pack. Even Sharpton isn't as funny as some of the "serious" candidates.

    Makes you wonder if Hillary isn't going to try to save the day. :what:

    Lieberman is the only one I have any respect for. I definitely don't agree with a great deal of his opinions/positions, but the rest seem like they'll say whatever they think will get them votes.

    I voted for Dean, because he's the most tolerable of the group. It will take a lot to get me to not vote third party, though.

    If I could bring myself to voting for any Democrat at time point in time, it would be Lieberman.

    Lieberman. I actually disagree with a huge pile of his political beliefs, but he at least strikes me as consistent and a rational actor on some level. Unfortunately, he has the charisma of old cottage cheese, and is doomed to fail.

    Clark is inconsistent and a weasel all-around. That's what I thought of him as a general before I knew he was a Democrat, Republican, or Green for that matter. He should never be given political power.

    Kerry has been plagued by flip-flopping on various issues & his campaign is inept. With smarter handlers he could have been The Man, but he's a dead duck.

    Dean seems like an outright nut to me. Self-satisfied New England Yankees don't tend to sell well in general, especially those perceived (fairly or not) as representing the hard-left lunatic fringe.

    Sharpton. Scum of the earth. But apparently was sort of funny on SNL.
    Kucinich. Huh? Wasting oxygen.
    Braun. See above.
    Gephardt is a protectionist twit. Remember how dumb Bush's steel tarrifs were? Now multiply that by 100. That aside, he's as dynamic as a stick of warm butter.
    Edwards. DOA.

    Even though I don't like the vast majority of the Democratic Party's positions on just about anything, except maybe my right to get drunk and have sex with anyone or anything of age without locking me up and telling me Jesus will hate me for it, I don't think that it is especially healthy for the Democratic Party to run such a field of losers, since it lets the Republicans get away with fielding chumps.

    Lieberman.

    Although I obviously disagree with him on guns and some other stuff he strikes me as a decent person.

    General Wesley Clark is the result of a crossbreeding between a carnival barker and a Mako shark. He is an arrogant and ruthless man and he scares me.

    Dean is too angry and flippant. He is appealing almost entirely to people who hate George Bush. Criticism is one thing, but you can't win the whole country on rancor alone.

    John "F-Word" Kerry had potential as the War Hero candidate but he is running an incompetent campaign.

    I heard Kucinich at the debates and he makes me laugh. Someone call the Kremlin and tell them to check Lenin's tomb.

    The others are insignificant.

    All worship government. None care about me or my God-given rights. In my opinion, Lieberman would be less likely to place me in a mass grave. However, I will work myself to death to pay for those who never want to work. Such a happy thought.

    I think Sharpton is the pick of the litter. Like Huey P. Long used to say, an honest politician stays bought. Sharpton for all his flaws is the most honest of the bunch. :rolleyes:

    Sharpton, 'cause ANFW he gets in!

    And, in the meantime, he provides entertainment, given he has the supporting cast of eight and free media.

    Will the next poll be "Which WWII dictator was the least offensive: Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Stalin, or Franco?"...:p


    My choice would be Kennedy.....John F. Kennedy.

    One: He's a lot less liberal than any of those listed above.

    Two: He's "mortally impaired"...:evil:

    At least dean supports the constitution, is pro-gun, and heavily against restrictions on civil liberties such as the patriot act.

    Let's all try and remember what good Bush did for this country. :rolleyes:

    What Dean says......

    "At least dean supports the constitution, is pro-gun, and heavily against restrictions on civil liberties such as the patriot act."
    ************************************************************

    will NOT be what he does....

    And Howweird Dean's party is not 'pro-gun', he's merely being allowed to mouth the words.:scrutiny:

    Dean saying he is not anti gun is like when Clinton said abortion should be legal, but rare. Read between the lines -- and also remember that if Dean were president you had better bet that he would appoint judges that would decide issues like gun manufacturer's liability. Care to speculate what percentage of Dean's appointments would be favorable to the original intent of the 2nd. Amendment?

    just curious guys, what has dean ever done that was anti-gun? The guy has essentially promised no more federal gun laws while he is in office.

    So, instead of trusting what dean says, we're supposed to elect a guy who has already shown THROUGH ACTION that he doesn't particularly care for the constitution and civil liberties?

    I agree that Lieberman is the least offensive of these clowns, but I could NOT bring myself to vote in this poll. just couldn't do it. Yeah, Lieberman is on record as being against registration and licensing (and THAT is major for a Democrat), BUT, he is in favor of smart gun technology. Once we have smart guns, we may as well kiss the second amendment goodnight and good-bye: at that point, Big Brother (whether it be the US or the UN) would be able to disable your firearms at will (not to mention any tech-savvy thief, rapist, etc.). The last thing we need is a Smart Gun cheerleader in the White House.

    As far as Dean is concerned, he is being bankrolled by one of the more dangerous men in the world, George Soros (billionaire who has written on "The Capitalist Threat", has called the US "the gravest threat to world freedom", and is a major force in global disarmament of civilians). If you think Dean is going to do us ANY good regarding guns rights, send me an email QUICK, because I own a few bridges in Brooklyn that I want to sell you.

    Most of the other candidates are jokes; (although Sharpton is probably the only one of the bunch I could actually sit down and have a beer with). Finally, Gephart is the only one who could give Bush a run for his money, so most of this discussion is probably pointless.

    Any Democrat in the White House will wind up with an Attorney General, SCOTUS and other Fed judges, etc. who, on the whole, will sell you and your guns down the river. I will vote for Bush, not because he is great, but because he is just one quantum step better than any Dem.

    Didn't say he'd do any good, but by saying he won't pass any more laws he won't do any harm. Don't focus this on a single issue either. What good are gun rights if you have no other civil rights? It's only a matter of time before some "anti-terrorism" bill will deprive us of the rest of them.

    I'd rather have a candidate that was strong on civil rights and weak on terrorism than the other way around, which is what we've got now.

    Back to the question that no one yet answered: what good did bush do for this country?

    I am amazed at how many people who have posted here seem to think the Republicans are pro gun!

    You guys know that Bush will sign a renewal of AWB, right?

    Bush could resume importation of a large number of firearms which his father banned by executive order. All it would take is a stroke of his pen. But he hasn't done that. If he is pro gun, why hasnt he done it?

    I voted for Sharpton as least offensive, since he has the least chance of winning.

    If he doesn't get the nomination (snicker) I hope he runs a strong independent campaign . . . guess which side he'll siphon more votes from? ;)

    If any one of these bum's lands in the White House ,it will not be a good for gun owners in America. No matter what they say on the campaign trail, it goes out the window when the arrive in Washington in January of 05.

    Funny, I voted for Lieberman before looking at the votes or reading the posts. I'm kinda surprised most of us are in agreement.
