Hillary Clinton? Barrack Obama? Where the FUCK is the Southern Governor? It's not that fucking hard to figure out: pick up a single state from the Old South, and the Dimmycrats swing the Electoral College their way. There are 11 states in the Old South: pick ONE popular Democrat governor from any of those states, run him (and yes, I mean "him") and he'll be in the White House. It's that fucking simple. If he actually does a good job for a couple of terms, THEN'S the time to go with the "gag" candidate (as Anthony put it). Hey, I'm a registered Republican. But I'd really like to see 2 REAL candidates out there. I don't care what the polls right now say (honestly, I have no idea what they say): Americans are going to have a really hard time voting in a black man and they're going to have a really hard time voting in a woman as divisive as Hillary. Governors are EXECUTIVES. They make decisions, and they carry them out. Even if they're BAD decisions, they make decisions. Senators and Congresscritters are all talk, little action. The US Senate is also known as The World's Greatest Debating Society for a reason. Being a Senator is an albatross when it comes to running for the Presidency, because you've got a voting record which'll have something in it that can sink you. I think things were better when the Party Bosses ran things, and decided who the candidates were in smoky back rooms, rather than this primary bullshit. All we end up with these days are Democratic candidates that are middle-of-the-road for the DNC and Republican candidates that are middle-of-the-road for the GOP, instead of candidates that are middle-of-the-road for the USA.
