That's true but that also means that the Dems need to run better, stronger, smarter campaigns...if they are not learning anything from what happened in Mass. and the possible upcoming mid-term elections then they get what they deserve..they aren't guranteed a vote just because they have a (D) by their name on the ballot...

I'm with you, GMATO1. I'll be on the plane right next to you. I wish that I could trust the public's intelligence but I still think they are willing to shoot themselves in the foot by voting against their own interest -- just to make a statement. Case in point: Scott Brown of Mass.

Let's not fool ourselves -- Beck, Limbaugh, Palin...all of them have a large following which just means we need to get their lies, hypochrisy and racist beliefs into the public's eyes and ears.

I say let him run...if his name being on the ballot isn't enough to pull every educated, minority, democrat, liberal, middle of the road Republican, young voter, female, senior citizen out to the voting booths then I don't know what to make of our country...

I honestly believe that while it may appear that he, Rush, Palin, etc. have this HUGE following..it won't translate to votes if they were to run..they are entertainment, not REAL politicians..they are too polarizing and even the GOP wouldn't put the nail in their own coffin by allowing them to be their candidate..media makes it seem that they are more than what they are...they are not GIANTS..they are small folks with the right camera angle!!!!

Bridie, after eight years of The Shrub I can believe ANYTHING.

They can't be serious! If he was the president, I would definitely have to move to a more stable place - like North Korea - LOL!
