    I disagree. Hillary has a tendency to take a hard line in order to prove that she is tough, although she is a woman. Also, too much baggage from various scandals.

    I wouldn't say that Bush is more sentimental or succeptible to emotional appeal than Obama. I mean, lets face it, it's not quite that straightforward.
    I would say that. Obama has been reported to be a person to grill his team on the details of policy. Never heard anyone make that observation about Bush. Obama is an academic and an intellectual. Such people tend to be like that.

I think that one of the people, his military advisors or council or whatever, come in and say what the situation is and what are the courses of action.
    There is nothing to stop him from doing so. Obama may come to a meeting and say "Iraq is problem, what are the pros and cons of targeted airstrikes", and then get feedback from advisors. Or it may play out as you have indicated. It just depends on the situation, how closely the President has been following it, how strongly he feels about it, and how confident he may feel in his analysis of the situation.

    The course is the main thing. For example, the President may say we are going to invade Iraq, the details of how to go about doing that are, of course left up to military experts. But it's the decision that is important, and those who wish to exercise effective influence over such decisions must take into account the type of person who is occupying the office of President so that they can be persuasive.

    Probably a Liberal who would vote for one of the two.

    That's like saying ebola is better than the black death.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That is a tough question......I would hate to have to chose either.

    I like Bachmann but realistically she never had a chance of even getting the GOP nomination.
