    Or do Dems and Repubs equally loathe him and it wouldn't make a difference?
    BUsh needs to do a rehab tour like Carter and Nixon. I vote yes...at least, he should try it.

    you're right. How about Reid and McConnell actually talking to one another. I'm shock, when I heard that on the news I almost had a heart attack. Two of the most partisan hack idiots this country every had and they're talking to each other. WOW!
    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 could wallpaper a small room with the requests I have received this year alone! State, local, fire department, library, schools, food bank, local charities, and more...and it's not over yet!

    You're still in their data bank dude..I get the requests online also since that's where I give..
    She''ll certainly need more than 1.7 M to turn this Senate seat..

    I was all set to sign up then decided to check her out. I thought she still lived down near her daddy in Perry. No such luck. She has lived the last 20 years or so in Atlanta. Now she has me wondering if she ain't an Atlanta liberal. Instead of joining her campaign I put it off until I find out where she stand on the issues. I'll never vote for an Atlanta Liberal.

    She has the right last name, but now I am wondering if she is level headed like her daddy. Time will tell.

    Atlanta is your media Capital and your regular old Capital..Stands to reason she would relocate there with her Husband and two Children.

    I like this idea Polgara..
    After our basement flooded with mine-shaft backup and wrecked it, we've been in a holding pattern..

    The only good things in Atlanta are the Braves and Georgia Tech. It is said you have Atlanta and its surrounding towns and suburbs and then the rest of Georgia which is pretty rural with small towns and country. Heck Atlanta and its suburbs take up about 5 counties and counting. Heck when I grew up Atlanta was a small town with a bunch of railroads. I can remember I-20 being nothing more than a two lane highway. Times sure have changed.
