Don't know who your talking about. I'm only moderatly interested in politics.

I pick a candidate to vote for, and a reason to hate everyone else, and I run with it.

Do you mean McCain from Arizona? I liked him, but he's losing stock because he is catering to the Religious Right, instead of fight for what he believes in. He is a moderate Republican, that feel he needs to blow the far right to get elected.
Hard to respect that.

No, the Dem governor of New Mexico, can't remember his name.  With him the Dem race is shaping up to be between a woman, a black guy and a latino.  Which will certainly make the election interesting.....

Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Not familiar with him, offhand.
The news here is all about Hillary and Obama right now.

he hasnt officially announced and he doesn't have a lot of experience, but his mid-fifties, white, former military and a former republican

So, the next president will either be a black guy, a woman, or a moderate Republican white guy....

Bill Richardson, former Energy Secretary during the Clinton administration.  And I'd vote for him over Hillary and Obama.  He has more leadership experience and is probably better equipped to handle the immigration stuff.

Yes but it IS an issue for a large portion of the electorate.  If you are going to support a candidate, while you want them to be somewhat in sync with your own personal beliefs, its a bonus if they also may be in sync with others on the issues you are less concerned about, especially one like immigration.

I'm waiting for the political pendulum's back-swing. I anticipate that 08 will be the end of a ridiculous period of American history characterized by far-right absurdity and the beginning of a ridiculous period of American history characterized by far-left absurdity.

Personally, I vote based on die rolls. I feel its a rational response to idiocracy.

Careful with that approach, do you really want Dennis Kucinich as your next president?

No, Hillary will win, initiate war with Iran, lose badly and ensure Republican dominance of American politics for the next 20 years.  She has her orders too, you know.

I genuinely don't care about immigration policy.
I'm just going to let someone else formulate my opinion on it.
Any takers? Next thing that sounds good is my new opinion on immigration.
