Either way, we're doomed.
I've seen better debates in high school!

The way I see it, W and **** Cheney doomed us when they got elected in 2000. The mess that they got the US into will not be resolved, at least in my lifetime. The + with Barack and Biden, they will get the US back on some credibility level with the rest of the world. Mcain and Palin will ailienate us further.IMHO, the White House is not a place for mavericks, and we need to vote somebody in that will think more along a party line, and that would be the Dems.

McCain and Palin scare me
McCain looks like the crypt keeper on his last leg and I think Palin is an idiot IMO

Steph- What a great idea. I also like what you said about being anonymous. A political thread without the usual candidate bashing-what a novel idea! Good for you.

Took the words right out of my keyboard. Obama and Biden confused me during the vice pres debate when Biden was asked about benefits for homosexual couples and he said "we don't want to make any distinction between gay and straight couples whatsoever". They followed up with, "so, does Obama and Biden believe in gay marriage?" His response was, "absolutely not!!" Forked tongue syndrome, or what?

There is no way I could vote either way and have a clear conscience.

This caught my attention- I think the dems are taking baby steps with this issue. (Which I agree with their position and angle they have taken to address this) The word "marriage" has too may religious ties. I don't care what they call it- as long as they do follow through with "no distinction between gay and straight" concerning the rights which are granted to straight couples when they tie the knot.

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

I agree that there has to be baby steps involved in something like that. I suppose I am just disappointed that there is a need for baby steps and that no one is willing to "come out" with what they believe instead of what they believe will get them elected. I just think the difference between benefits and marriage should have been addressed. It sounded vague and two faced to me, since I have a different version of 'marriage' than most of America.
Many believed Clinton's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy was a step forward but I saw it as a cop out. Same goes for gun laws, tobacco use, marijuana, abortion. Step up and tell us what you would deem the ideal for society so we can get a peek at what you have in store for us in the future.

"I would like to see a society where it did not matter what your sexual preference is in order to be married but for now, we can't go that far so our policy would be......", would have made me 'feel' better. I realize that it would have been the atom bomb that destroyed the Obama campaign. It always comes down to the American people and what they demand from their government.
