    No.

    i would be interested in what positions she holds that you think are as far left as the Rick Perry's far-right positions I listed, even though I have not suggested she will win the Democratic Nomination as you have suggested that Rick Perry will win the Republican Nomination.

    She's just an example....I'd be rather disapointed in you if you didn't recognize that she represents the left of mainstream democrats though. She's a frisco liberal, homey. You only get farther left by actually being a communist, and living on a commune...raising organic shrooms.....

    Her postions, as far as I am aware, are in line with the way the majority of Democrats in the house voted. Can you tell me the positions she took that a majority of Democrats in the House did not support?

    I don't think there are enough Republicans willing to look past his complete lack of governing experience. We're the party that has the tendency to choose The Guy Whose Turn It Is, not The Guy Who Talks To Us Pretty, And We Fall For (that's the Democrats - see; 2008). That doesn't mean Romney will win - the Party is also likely to find it exceedingly difficult to swallow his continued support for Romneycare - but it provides a huge hurdle for Candidates like Cain and Santorum.

    *"Perry does not believe there is valid scientific proof of anthropogenic global warming. He has said several times that there is no scientific consensus on the issue."

    LOL.....consensus, really?
    There are as many who dispute it as there are that joined in the "consensus". GW just happens to be the Religion of choice for the Left.

    *"Perry opposes regulation of greenhouse gas emissions because he says it would have "devastating implications" for the Texas economy and energy industry."

    Not to mention it would devastate the World Economy for an unproven "theory".

    *"Perry supports Arizona immigration law SB 1070 and is willing to sign a similar bill in Texas."

    Good luck with this, most American's do.

    Too funny, see the 2010 Election results, they were Pelosi orchestrated.

    that's true - Republicans don't give you credit for your identity group like democrats will. But I think that the Obama Movement (which is what it was - it wasn't a political campaign) picked up alot of steam from the Kennedyesque beauty of the thing - a young, inspiring young man (yes, of a new demographic to win the Presidency, though I'm not sure how well catholic/african descent mirror each other) who could give soaring speeches long on ideals (though short perhaps on specifics) providing someone to fall in love with.

    Republicans tend not to shriek and burst into tears, or fall into rapturous sonorous near-worship of their candidate like many Democrats did for Obama. 2008 was a true phenomena for them.
