    C) Multiple failed attempts? He ran for president exactly once. And I say he's brilliant because his 50-state strategy paved the way for the substantial gains Democrats made in '06 and '08. If it weren't for Dean in the DNC, I doubt Democrats would have won half the congressional seats they did, and I doubt Obama would have done quite so well in states like NC.
    First of all, I am not saying he ran for president on multiple occasions, but higher office, he became chair because it was obvious that he couldn't get elected after '04. Next, you give the man way too much credit for strategy, Bush had low approval ratings, the Republicans went back on the "contract with America", '06 was a backlash to that, '08 was a backlash to McCain, Bush, and the overall new Republican philosophy, Dean really didn't do much more than screach, scream, and foam at the mouth, any idiot could have beaten this batch of worthless Republicans.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Considering the fact Republicans have a longer history of racial equality than democrats(who were once the party of the KKK),what could you mean by that statement?


    As long as he is not a rino, McCain, Romney(republican John Kerry/flip flopper, or another Bush I could care less what color his skin is.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Steele was NEVER Governor of Maryland....he lost that election!

    Not only that, last I checked, the vast majority of voters are against gay marriage so...I don't think the GOP want's to piss off 60% of America.
    Granted whether this is true or not do you honestly think that given the choice between a tax and spend Democrat vs a Republican who believes in Fiscal Conservativism but is for gay marriage the people will elect the Democrat?

    You do know this sort of crap is more racist than whatever you are trying to imply here.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
