    If Colorado goes blue, I'll harass you about it in November. OR, you can say "I told you so" if it goes red.

    Maybe Colorado, like every other state, is really some shade of purple?

    "The only thing that depresses me is that politicians cant get anything done for the American people because they are constantly drawing party lines."

    -Could McCain be the best person to turn this around? He has shown more of a willingness to "reach across the isle" than any of the other candidates...

    Whatever. You right-wing sycophants run around like chickens squawking "He called me a racist--waak!"--as if the whole world revolves around you and your pristine reputation when no one actually said anything of the sort. Sorry to wreck your day by bringing up the issue.

    I think it all depends on the state. In Colorado, we had to show the pollworkers we were registered Democrats or Republicans to vote in the caucus.

    In Colorado's last general election, we elected a Democrat to an open U.S. Senator spot, and a Democratic governor. The leadership of the State assembly also went from Republican to Democrat.

I feel that the main reason that is the case is specifically linked to the way Bush and Cheney have conducted themselves for 7 years. They have sowed the seeds of hatred from the Dems, be it right or wrong. Remember Cheney's nice choice of words on the Senate floor?

    It is ludicrous to think that spending will increase with a Dem. One of the main reasons our economy is tanking is a direct result of the Bush/Cheney endless occupation in Iraq. They are willing to spend 100's of billions of tax dollars for their cause, but they don't want a comprehensive health package to help the millions of Americans who can't afford it.

    When the Dem gets on the campaign trail against McCain, they have so much ammunition that it will be a slaughter. His alleged appeal to the middle is no different than either HC or BO. What will really kill him though is his 100 year commitment to Iraq.

    It is foolish to think Iraq doesn't matter to the 65%of Americans who are against this war. The only reason it appears to have quieted down is that most of us realize that the Dems are powerless to stop Bush. Bush wants to hand his mess over to the Dems, as you aptly pointed out that you look forward to the Dems getting blamed going forward.

    I choose to think positive and we are too great a country to allow negative cynicism like many feel to win out over the hopeful voters like myself.

    It certainly can't get worse than it has been the last 5 years since Bush claimed that WMD were pointed at us.
    Password you did not reply directly to anything I posted except in the first paragraph.

    I would say that McCain can win against anyone and there cant be a lot of ammunition out there he hasn't already dealt with. In regards to the "100years in Iraq" he was not giving a time table and he was saying we would have forces there much like we do in Germany 60+ years later and Vietnam 40+years later and Korea ect. Not staying in a 100year war. But you spin it how you want. He has explained that statement many times.

    I assume when you say you want to be positive you only mean if a Dem wins the white house. It is obvious that you are not positive if a repub wins the white house.

    Lately I agree Bush has out spent his welcome but all the indicators are that Hillary or Obama will start entitlement programs that with send the spending upward and make it impossible for us to control our debt issues.

    Are you really going to flat out lie about calling myself, skipster and I believe Flogging racists on more than one occasion. All you have to do is look at some of the immigration threads to see that you have.
