    I'm surprised you're still on this since Deen's a Democrat who campaigned for Obama.
    I think the phrase "run for President" is a stretch.

    He never really had a chance.

    I actually think this lawsuit, however, will go a long way in redeeming this woman's career though which will be a good thing. People do dumb things in their lives and noone is perfect, especially in younger years. This woman should not have been demonized for things she said in the past.

    I wonder what standing she will have to counter-sue this woman?
    I think it all just goes to show how we bend over backwards to appease the black community to the point of foolishness.

    The black community is just going to sink further and further while the race card is such a potent weapon.

    Weird...I think the same thing about the white/old conservative community.

    That's because you're a partisan hack.

    The outrage stems from her describing the man who held her at gun point while he robbed a bank as a nigger.

    It sounds to me that Paula Deen was right on the money and anyone who would castigate her for offending him is an asshole.

    No...it stems from her wanting to people to dress up as slaves for a plantation themed wedding. It has to stem from her use of the word outside of that incident. A lady not in the lawsuit that has worked with her for decades also told the media that Paula Dean wanted her to go outside and ring a dinner bell and say "come and get it" for the white patrons.

    The lawsuit was dropped because the woman filing the suit was white but it's not like the things that came out were proven not true.

    Sooo....you seem to of missed what the issue was.

    He did run. Whether or not he had a chance is up for debate.

    I tend to agree that there was no way he won that, but he did run.
