[FoRK] How Barack lost my vote forever

Anyway, although I believe McCain is a lot more rational, I cannot vote 
for the party of theocrats.
As far as the economy, in the last 15-20 years or so, it has seemed a 
lot better off during Democratic administration periods than 
Republican...  Correlation, causation, blah blah.  Still.

Either Democrat is fine.  McCain is, and maybe always was, compromised.  
The whole party, and many of their constituent groups, are in shambles.  
The best thing for them is to lose so they can clean house and skip on 
to the next generation.  We're still dealing with guys who sharpened 
axes in the 70's there.  Are you kidding me?

I'd prefer Barack / Clinton (w/ Clinton 2 on backup / Carter mode ;-) 
).  She's not going to turn it down.  It is her clear path to the 
presidency.
