    Will I vote for Obama....pretty likely.
    Nothing about Obama's time in the senate suggested moderate. At least not in terms of the American left-right paradigm.

    The difference is that Obama the Senator and Obama the President are two separate people. Many of the things he seemed to be against while in Congress suddenly appeared okay once he found himself in the Oval Office.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I agree about the unrealistic expectations.

    I said I don't know. I'm not thrilled with the job he's done necessarily, but I'm not thrilled with any of the other candidates so far, either.

    The only real answer to this question should be "I Don't Know" since we don't know who his opponent will be. You can hate his polices all you want, but if the republican candidate offers worse over all polices can you honestly say you'd vote republican?

    Depends entirely on who the republicans run against him.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    which republicans would be acceptable in your opinion?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It being mid May of 2011 it is far too early to decided on who to vote for. Time will have to go into seeing where the major candidates fall and who best represents my views.

    I don't think a nutless monkey is any less mentally capable than a nut-having monkey.
