    No poll yet?

    He was gonna get a rough time of it no matter how well he did.


    And respect?

    Respect is earned, not given away.
    I thought Bush was not a good president but I did not disrespect him.

    It is America's only realistic hope, imo.

    BTW - I am a guy.
    I agree. I really wanted Hillary to get the nomination. Apparantly the dems did not agree.

    What are your thoughts?
    It takes two to tango as far as I'm concerned, as I don't know that anyone believes the Barack Obama is a martyr. If the president thinks he's catching disrespect from others, then maybe he better look in the mirror.

    Actually, I am not that big on Hillary. She is WAY too status quo for my tastes.

    Germany's Merkel, for example, is also too status quo, imo. But of all the EU leaders that I know of, I have more respect for her opinions then any other.

    But frankly, almost ANY woman as POTUS is probably a step in the right direction.

    Except Sarah Palin...yikes!!!

    I want someone with significant knowledge/intelligence and common sense...not someone who is attractive, keeps crib notes and knows how to wink.

    Obama is coddled but much more of the people and media than his predecessors. Bush and Clinton had it much much worse.

    I think more people need a history lesson on the John Adams vs. Thomas Jefferson campaign...

    In short, no.

    I don't think so. He hasn't from me. Bill and Hillary Clinton where on my party my ass off if they die list long before Obama made that list.

    it's hard to say. Clinton, Bush, and Obama have all been treated pretty horribly by the opposition.
