    The Left is hanging their hat on what a FORMER senator did now. At least the Right is blaming Obama while he's still in office.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Actually it is more about people who jumped on the bandwagon to condemn Clinton for his affair while they were doing the very same thing. We saw this with Gingrich.

    Clinton was wrong but don't be pumping up your chest about it if you were doing the same exact thing with other women.

    The only evidence I see here is that Pete did the wrong thing 30 years ago. How that unfortunate fact translates into guilt for nearly half of the country is beyond reason.

    True, it should be about the individual hypocrite. But here in this forum everybody has to be lumped together in one group or another. You may not even find either group exactly a correct fit but people here believe you have to choose one side or another and you are responsible for any ills they commit.

    The US military should get involved with ANY mass genocide. What constitutes that? I have no idea. But off the top of my head - I would say 1,000. But maybe less - depends on the situation.
    There is some genocide in every war - so getting involved in every single case is not practical.


    And why would I have to sacrifice my families lives to save people 5000 miles away? That is a ridiculous question.

    As for money? I would gladly pay what funds I can spare if I believed it would save an innocent human being from being slaughtered in a genocide. I already give about 20% of my net income to charity - so diverting that to directly save a life would be very cool.

    And as for my life? I already said that I would volunteer in a mission to stop a genocide.

    As I typed - 'Better to be dead and cool. Then alive and uncool.'

    MUCH better.


    Now let's hear your answer to all your questions?

    I was of the opinion© that residual dislike of Clinton cost Gore the election. Certainly, there were other factors including the SCOTUS and the choice of Lieberman.

    So, I understand that your opinion© is slightly different than mine but the reality™ remains the same.

    As for whether one's moral indiscretions reflect on the party overall....I would say no - and I would say the same. Indeed, that was the point of my post.

    I don't condone Bill Clinton's actions at all....he was not my favorite but won me over during his terms...but I lost a lot of respect I had for him due to his moral indiscretions. But lets me fair. The Republicans were on a two year witchhunt....and all they could come up with after years of digging was a blowjob? Give me a break. ANY guy would have lied about it.

    As for whether one's moral indiscretions reflect on the party overall....I would say no. But it tends to be more Republicans that try to claim the moral highground and get caught with their pants down and their hypocrisy exposed. True....there are conservative and liberal hypocrties though.

    Since humans are not mongomous animals, I would like to know how he treated the child through his life to make any kind of determination on what kind of person he is or was.

    And where is your evidence that humans are not monogomous?

    Just because you probably want to fool around on your women - doesn't every man does.

    It is in our nature. We were put on this earth to procreate and spread our genes around.

    Why do you think humans are monogomous other than a religious book telling you so?

    Is that only in an individual sense?

    Some animals are, it depends on context.
