    I am a conservative independent. And I do like the idea of across the aisle cooperation.....just not to the point where all values the republican party claims to represent are compromised for the sake of "bipartisanship".

    It appears all we can do is elect Bushes and Clintons. We need something else.

    I'm aware of that. He was exonerated.

    I can understand that. But sometimes if one gains 50% of the value one wants and stand for is better than nothing at all. Your pragmatic presidents understood this. Of course there are some issues where one wouldn't compromise, so it all depends on the issue.
    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.

Actually I wanted to give them a chance last time, they just could not put forward a candidate to my liking. Mitt has some major work to do, if I were to vote for him.

    Although I have not looked at him in great detail, I could consider Rand Paul if it were not for that stuff with the government shutdown. But I say that merely because at times he says stuff that I like. But that government shutdown stuff was gross. Can't even consider him after that.

    Herbert Walker was ok, but that was because he had a man like James Baker to keep things in proper perspective. Dubya was a total disaster. What this country needs right now is someone like James Baker at the helm.

    But then the establishment republicans on most agreements they have made with the democrats have not managed to get anywhere near 50%. In some cases that failed to get 1%. They basically just bent over.
