    You are probably right. You are probably right, i like Leiberman as a person but disagree with him most of the time. I know a lot of GOP and Dems don't like him but you have to give the man credit he stands up for what he believes (at least that is my perception) and almost cost him his career.

    For the sake of debate do you think Lieberman would have accepted? Even though he is now an independent he still votes/has voted over 90% (if i remember correctly) with Democrats.
    I think Lieberman would have accepted and I think it would not have gone well. IMO they thought they needed to "rally the base" and Palin did that, but it's a shrinking base and it wasn't enough against a solid opponent. IMO.

    I would say the you are right to an extent...the GOP base was shrinking and/or very quiet to some extent but the conservative base is still the largest demographic. There was a study that I was reading a few weeks ago (will try to find).

    I think because Obama ran such a good campaign that he pulled many conservatives (both independent and GOP) over to vote for him. I had some good friends that are conservatives that ended up voting for Obama because of his energy and the promise of transperency.

    The term "conservative" is subject to ones own opinion of what they think is a conservative circa 2009. The term is thrown around blindly out there without many folks really understanding what a real "conservative" is historically.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Let me give you a history lesson in the early 1900's.Historically, the hunting of wolves was a huge, capital and manpower intensive operation, requiring miles of netting, specialized net-carts and big drying sheds for storing and drying nets. They were killing wolfs because they felt like were doing "right". and now there reitroducing killing wolfs.

    Yes I am familiar with the history but this is still the first time I have ever heard anyone on here wish someone dead.
