Old white guy '08... and beyond!

i keep hearing the democrats bashing each of their presidential candidates. the thing is, i really dont think it matters. im not being racist here, hell, i dont even vote (it's an exercise in futility) but methinks old white guy is going to keep winning for sometime. in this particular case it's going to be McCain. i know what you are thinking, "but everyone hates the republicans now!" the thing is, the republicans still like the republicans, even if they arent too thrilled with their latest candidate. that being said, there are those (a great deal of old people and old people love to vote) that wouldnt vote for a woman or "person of color" thus old white guy is going to win.

so... what is your view of my opinion? dont call me a sexist or racist because i would be fine if a black woman (e.g. Rice) became our president.

release the hounds!

It's a valid opinion -- I've been wondering pretty much the same. But here's my thinking... It's clear the democrats have been out in force in the primaries -- in far greater numbers than usual. It could be that it's a sign that they really hate the candidate they _aren't_ voting for, but I think it's more a reflection of the desire to overthrow the current regime and begin something new.

I think (OK, hope) that when a candidate is chosen for the Dems -- whomever it may be -- that all the democrat voters will fall in line behind them, even if that person isn't their first choice. That's certainly what I intend to do. My only concern is that Nader has stuck his stupid face in this one again and might pull enough insecure Democrats away. But then the republicans don't seem all that struck on McCain, so maybe a few of them will lean Nader's way and balance the equation.

So that's my opinion (before the hounds take over the thread)

That guy McCain is as old as I am, so therefore he should be in retirement with a lot of those other old fart Senators-like his buddy, fat shit Ted Kennedy should get out of Washington. They are so terrible they have spawned younger wannabes like obimbo

Justifiable cannibalism in the Democratic Party vs a gereatric Republican candidate. Wow what a stinker this one is! Huckabee would've been a way better schmo than McCain. Yikes.

I like McCain a hell of a lot more than Bush and wish to hell he's have won the 2000 nomination and not Bushy, but sadly I feel the republicans have fucked this up so horribly I will be voting for whoever the democratic candidate ends up being.

the dem party will be split in two, no one gets out of this without a scar...blacks won't vote for hillary and latinos won't vote for obama. it's all about trust after all of this.
Latinos need a candidate that will push forward comprehensive immigration reform, hillary has less to lose than obama. blacks see the danger of being irrelevant because when the latinos numbers go above 35% and they get organized, the time of the black politician in Washington is over.
Republicans will slow down the changing of the political landscape in America, but not if the people don't support them.
You decide, your country, your choice...

I think the Democrats are trying their hardest to loose the next election. Undoubtedly Republicans will win in VA...nothing new there. If it werent for the fact that McCain is pro-the military industrial complex (100 years of war) and his pro-life position and the fact he is a Republikan...I could support him At least he isnt an idiot like George W.

Anyone who doesnt vote has no basis to complain (or comment) one way or the other.

McCain's wife has those spooky light eyes like a ghost. She scares me. He might be the person to be the first President to have a ferret for a pet. I would love to see a ferret in the White House.

Mrs. McCain may be interesting to get to know more about. When she got up to "nail" Mrs. Obama about her "proud" remark...she certainly came across to me as a real ice queen. She was born blond...good looking...rich...was the mistress to a then married Mr. McCain (who was then married to the military wife who he later divorced)...and now a potential first lady.

Her eyes are just like that woman's eyes in "They Live". And we all know how she double-crossed Rowdy Roddy.

Interesting that it's OK to play the age and race card as long as it's old white guys we're talking about. What happened to considering a candidate's stance on issues as a basis for one's vote?

Since some asshat keeps bumping up Romney links even though he's yesterday's news, I figured a few McCain threads were worth revisiting too.
