You know how I roll in this whole mess who call A-merican politics.

BUT all I had to do was read page one to agree.

Obama is the only one I plan on voting for as he is well COOL and also the least like a politician.

Obama seems to have the vibe. He is liked by almost everyone I talk to.

I just wonder if we are missing something though. That old "if it's too good to be true, it probably is" comes to mind.

Good stuff from Professor Wilentz.

Now, if only I could get tenure at Princeton and write for RS...

"Now, though, George W. Bush is in serious contention for the title of worst ever."

WTF??? There's even a question???

its bad when people from your own party start to mention impeachment as an option.

"WTF??? There's even a question???"

I'd say there are a few who could challenge Bush the younger.

Lydon B Johnson, sets the FBI on a hunt to discredit MLK......and invades the DR.

JFK, Do we need a list any further than Bay of Pigs and operation Mongoose. But he gets points for MM.

Woodrow Wilson a proponent of racism and fought hard to keep it alive and well in the USA.

If you look into history with open eyes you find they are ALL the worst president EVER. All of them pigs with bellies full on our hard work. BUT that said I'd rather have Bush the Jr over a King or Dictator any day.

Think about that.

Obama -- man I want to like him. He says the right stuff and not in the boring, redundant, patronizing way that Edwards does. I always feel like Edwards is turning the "folksy southern guy" knob up to 11 so's he can connect down at my level.

But I think Obama's going to really have to run the gauntlet vis a vis the Clinton campaign. Hillary's got some brass nutz and can truly take the heat. Can Barak? We'll see. He already admits he inhaled tho, so I've gotta give him some cred.

Edwards... sad to say but when your wife has terminal cancer during your campaign, you're, well, hosed. When she gets sick, either he quits campaigning or he campaigns despite his dying wife at home, neither of which serves him well.

But whatever way you slice it, we can at least rest assured that a lawyer will get the dem nod.

I apologize for such a long comment, but I like politics almost as much as I like bike racing (maybe more)

From politics as a game standpoint, I think it would behoove the Democrats to nominate Obama as their candidate. The Republican nominee (my guess is Giulani, unless Mr. Law and Order Fred Thompson gets in the mix) will have a tough road to hoe. It's going to be very difficult for the nominee to separate himself from unpopular Republican policies. If the Democrats nominate Obama, who has a short track record and who is very well spoken, I say he cruises to victory. If the Dems nominate Hilary, Republicans hang Hilarycare and her wishy washy stance on Iraq around her neck and the general election becomes interesting.

The 2006 gubernatorial election here in CA provides somewhat of an analogy. The frontrunners in the Dem primary were Controller Steve Westly, a moderate, and Treasurer Phil Angelides, a liberal. Angelides got the nomination. Despite Gov. Schwarzenegger's unpopular special election in 2005 where he pushed some far right policies, the Dems didn't get traction using the special election against him because they spent a lot of time defending Angelides' liberal positions to moderates.

I'm not sure who's more moderate, Obama or Hilary, but she has more baggage Republicans can use to attack her.

So far I haven't seen anything on Obama that could be considered what I'm calling baggage. I'm sure Hilary's people are digging hard. Since nothing detrimental has surfaced yet, that's a good sign for him.

I can't get behind the big O just yet. I can't forget the big W ride his first time around, yes even in Cali' there were W signs everywhere and our new found neocons were breaking out like STD's at a forgien legion convention. Well we know how that turned out , and the closet repubs were hootin it up. Now I don't know about the worst ever, he is close but anywho, I like O but don't now jack about the dude. I get a little nervous thinking about Hillary behind the sterring wheel as well. That and oh yeah the election is still a year and a half away. Now back to our regularly scheduled bike smack talk.

Before Bush I had a reasonable amount of faith in my government. Now I am a hardcore conspiracy theorist...

Sadly, most of this was already true in 2004, and yet the Dems were unable to leverage this multitude of failures into a victory . Obama, Edwards, Clinton, whoever - they'd better have their sh*t together this time around.

btw einstein raced bikes?

Love the reptile line and I sit on the other side of the ailse from you Olaf. Politics is a great thing and I'm glad that you are so engaged even though I don't share your same optimism regarding the democratic party or platform. The most important thing anyone can do is have an opinion about what they want their government to do and be and vote accordingly.

Need to read up on Obama and his plan/map for the country. So far, I've heard a lot of good comments from others but haven't been able to hang my hat on anything concrete as to what he wants to accomplish if elected. For the repubs, don't know if the republican right can bring themselves to annoint RudyG given his pro choice (gasp) stance and garbage in the bin (affairs/divorce, absantee fatherhood, etc.). Fred Thompson can talk and that could play well in the south not to mention with the middle who are tired of Bush and his butchering of the english language. My humble opinion.
