Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you......
President Bush turns 58 today. John Kerry has given Bush a nice birthday gift.....John Edwards. With Edwards as Kerry's chosen running mate, Kerry/Edwards will not generate any more momentum in their campaign then Kerry already has.
If anything, Kerry's choosing Edwards will allow him to gain momentum in the South. The US has not had a president since JFK that was not from the South/ a Sunbelt state (Reagan). Edwards will allow Kerry to gain much needed Southern votes.
Maybe, but I dont think so. Moore is bigger help for the Kerry campaign than Edwards.
who should Kerry have picked?
-have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11-I'd like to see your posting on that?
Believe me, once I do see it you'll here all about it.
I think trying to finesse McCain into the vice-presidency was a good idea by the Kerry camp even though it wasnt going to happen. Honestly, Kerry would do better with Hillary. Thats not to say that she would except the position because it would hurt her chances at the Presidency in 2008 when Bushes term is up.
John McCain is Republican-I don't know if he would switch parties to run on Kerry's ticket-I think he would make a an excellent Secretary of Defense and I think he is one of Kerry's top choices for Secretary of Defense. Kerry's camp announced that when the news broke about the torture of the prisoners of war to juxtapose Kerry's selections for Secretary of Defense with Rumsfeld. I love the majority of Hillary Clinton's policies, but I doubt she would have the support she and Kerry would need to get votes. She is controversial to both the left and the right because of her husband. Those on the right see her as a power hungry bitch (because they are uncomfortable with ambitious women). Some on the left have trouble with the fact that she chose to stand by her husband through his affairs. Also, unfortunately, I think many Americans are not ready for a woman vice president. Edwards is a lot less controversial. As for qualifications, Edwards is a member of the US Senate, unlike Bush, who had only participated in state politics and had not worked on the national political scene until his election. (the same is true of Bill Clinton).
"Those on the right see her as a power hungry bitch (because they are uncomfortable with ambitious women). Some on the left have trouble with the fact that she chose to stand by her husband through his affairs."
Hillary IS a power hungry bitch. She spent more tax payer money on personal shit while first lady than anyone in history and she makes me sick. The reason she stood by her husband is A. She's got him by the balls and gets what she wants through him. B. It would have killed her popularity if she would have left him.
I think people are ready or close to ready for a woman in the white house, I just hope to G-d Hillary doesnt get back in there. I dont know if security will even let her back in after her binging and stealing before she left.
Then why would choosing Hillary as VP candidate have benefitted Kerry? I think we are in agreement that it would not have.
-I had not heard the statistic on Hillary's personal spending while in the White House-will research it
It would benefit Kerry because there are a lot of stupid people out there who love Hillary, including insane Bush hating liberals, arabs who can buy her off, black people.......The list goes on and on.
Well, I guess I am a "insane Bush hating liberal" so speaking for my group, it would be pretty hard for Kerry to pick a running mate that I would dislike more than Bush. I doubt there is anyone who would have voted for Bush, but would not if Kerry picked Hillary. As for the black community, I don't think Hillary will influence their vote either way. The Democratic Party has always been more supportive of traditionally "black" causes (since Bobby Kennedy convinced JFK to take a stand on seggregation)than the Republican Party. I am sure this will remain the same regardless of who is on the Democratic VP ticket. As for Arabs, they are a minority in this country, and I doubt their vote will be that influential. Additionally, Arabs come from a variety of countries in the Middle-East and have varying political and religious backgrounds. I am sure that their agendas may differ but the "Arab" vote as the vote of most Americans will be mostly for or against Bush-Kerry and his running mate are simply the only alternative. I think this theme of being for or against Bush will hold true for campaign donations as well.
