Democrat- well i hate the term because it is to loos instead i will define liberal (the platform on which the Democratic party is based on.) A liberal is one who believes that the phrase we the people is one that holds no limitations and thus applies the rights of the constitution to all. The Liberal generally supports minorities and the working class as well as improving the environment.

Important issues are Gay rights/marraige, Tax cuts, and Education reform as well as repairing international affiliations.

Democrats will or should win the election because bush's slaughtering of many international relationships due to a personal vendetta was unjust. Also because the republican party began with negative adds before a democratic cantidate was officially named.

I'm actually Libertarian, but I suppose thats similar to Republican (the same way that Greens are sorta Democrats).

1- Someone who believes it taken responsability for ones OWN actions. Government serves the people, not the other way around. These are the core fundementals.

2- Security, Economy, credability.

3- Bush will win, though I'm voting Libertarian.
Kerry has WAY to many skeletons that he is brushing off right now. He can not do that forever. The current attitude of liberals is "I don't like Kerry, but he is our best choice to beat bush".
This attitude will prevent these types from bothering to vote, and which is polls are ALWAYS skewed incorrectly to the left.
Liberals are less likely to vote then conservatives.

Kerry was putting all of his eggs into the economy, and that has about killed him. I expect him to do another 360 on Iraq to salvage his hopes.

Just to add to this as well as add to mine. Kerry is not largly expected top win because Bush is an incumbent. However G H W Bush lost as an incumbent. Kerry is not the best liberal the reason he won the promaries is because none of the big ones are running. it is far more likly that if bush wins in 04 then in 08 many strong Liberals will make the run because Bush will be a lame duck. 08 also shows promise to be the first time a woman made a strong run at the presidency. The woman of course is Hillary Clinton. IMO a good way for the Democrats to increase the number of voters who come out would be to run Clinton as Kerry's V.P. i realize this is unlikly and the cantidate will most likely br New Mexico's Governor (the idea of which is to win the enormously important hispanic/latino vote.)

Also just to clearify it for those who dont know

Libertarian/Republican= Conservative

Green/Democrat= Liberal

I think your exactly right.
Ms Clinton wants to be president, and this stint as a NY senator is just part of that plan.

She is VERY popular with the extreme left, but I don't think it would help the party since the people that would vote for her would probobly never vote republican anyway.

Now, if it was Ms Clinton vs Ms Dole?

That would be tough.

My reasoning behind her running for the V.P. in 04 was not to get the extreme left who would likly vote for Kerry or possibly the green party cantidate but to carry the minority vote as well as the youth vote. Polls show that the youth support many things that their parents do not including full and complete equality of the sexes. Also it has been seen that minorities and leagal immigrants trust a woman more than a man and are more likly to vote for the female.

Yes Clinton Used the New York senate seat as a stepping stone. If she didnt intend to move on from being a senator she would've instead run in Arkansas. Instead she chose new york (one of the states often considered key to winning the presidency.)

As far as Clinton V.S. Dole that would be interesting. How ever i believe that Clinton would win due to the fact that she is far more widly known. She speant 8 years in the white house where her name common in much of the countries political conversation.

A republican is a conservative who believes in smaller government, and more freedom. It's actually the Republicans, though few know it, who support the minorities more; we were founded by civil rights activists, and we were the first to support women's suffrage.

2. What are the key issues in the upcoming presidential election?
Gay rights, taxes, gun control, flip-flopping (not exactly an issue, but Kerry does it a lot), military (Iraq).

The Democratic candidate is a complete idiot who changes his opinion based on the audience he is speaking to, he does not support the troops in Iraq, and he's completely anti-war.


Also, in 08, I think Condoleeza Rice could be convinced to run, and she'd win in a landslide.

First off being Anti War doesnt make some one an idiot. Also if you payed attention he supports our troops. You are a poor unfortunate victim of conservative propaganda and negative adds. Please go out read the facts and formulate your own opinions.

Second Condeleeza Rice will not run. Have you seen her approval ratings. they suck. She would not win by a land slide. She would be extremely lucky to even get the nomination.

Please support your statements with facts especially the ones abot what a republican is.

My definition of republican is accurate. Perhaps you should check your facts?

I didn't say he's an idiot BECAUSE he's anti-war, I said he's an idiot AND he's anti-war.

You are a poor unfortunate victim of liberal propaganda and negative adds. (Actually ads) Please go out read the facts and formulate your own opinions.

Please show me these bad approval ratings of Ms. Rice. I don't believe it, I want proof.
