    that was stupid. Ashcroft had a very good resume though, Yale and Chicago Law, AG of his home state, as well as a governor (2 term) and Senator. The AG is mainly a managerial position-the top trial attorney for the US Government is the Solicitor General. Ashcroft was a very good executive.

    Yeah, I have been around a lot of those conversations in a bar and elsewhere. So and So sucks is usually what it boils down to. Platforms, I would bet 90% of the people do not even know what a platform is. That is outside of someone shoes.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I agree whole heartily. As my signature line attest. I live in a gerrymandered congressional district, everyone knew who exactly the winner would be 2 years before the first vote was cast. Gerrymandering is nothing but jury rigging an election. I would like to see a constitutional amendment that on the congressional level where counties had to remain whole as much as possible.

    LOL, yeah. You are so right. I love Obama because he is a Democrat or I hate Obama because he is a Democrat. I usually stay away from those folks. I like good conversations.

    It's not directly related to the requirements for the position, but it indicates a general level of intelligence. They don't pluck people off the street.
    Thanks for the link, But I must say...Other than case 1, and 5 the others seem awfully boiler plate...Nothing standing out...But considering 1 and 5 that would place her right in line with the bent of the current administration. Prosecuting cops, and republicans that is.

    Oh, you actually made prosecuting a cop who raped a detainee with a broom handle into a political issue? Good ****ing job bro! Also, prosecuting an Al-Qaeda operative whose goal was to blow up a branch of the FED is not in any way, shape or form "boiler plate."

    Re: Obama expected to nominate Loretta Lynch to be attorney general: CNN

    Watching all the conservatives complain about Loretta Lynch being nominated while praising Mia Love for being nothing other than a black flight attendant/fitness instructor/community organizer who was elected is pretty funny. What were her qualifications before being elected?

    elections select the person the voters who actually vote most want. not the most "qualified" or the best and the brightest.

    Obama could pick any attorney in the USA for the office of AG. him alone. do you think this woman is anywhere near the best and the brightest attorney in public or private sectors? or even the best attorney in the Dept of Justice

    or even the US Attorney's office in her district?

    Ummm elections are about picking the most qualified person. Actually, here you are arguing that for you to vote for a black person, they'd need to be qualified:

    Would you say that the voters of Utah and Mia Love's fans feel she was qualified? Or did the fact that she was black (and unqualified in every metric used to define the word) make all the difference? Remember, flight attendant, fitness instructor, possible beneficiary of affirmative action. I'm just trying to see where the line is for you.
