that the gray area boundaries have either gotten wider apart or folks have been more skilled at tightrope walking. As long as no one rails on a person or party for their political views, the choker chain seems to remain slack.

Got it right, Steve

The political nastiness was destroying the community, hence the pogrom.

....have left the forum, either voluntarily or otherwise, and it's been a "kinder, gentler" SE since then. I'm glad the policy has been relaxed somewhat, especially with an election as important as this one only a few months away.

I would hope that the candidates
by Steven Haninger / June 6, 2008 7:47 AM PDT

their supporters and the "unofficial voices" of the activists in the upcoming campaign can be as civil as it's been here lately...but not taking any bets that it will. Wink

why the civility
by James Denison / June 6, 2008 12:33 PM PDT

I think the current civility is because neither side really likes the candidate choices for their side, with the exception of a minority of Obama devotees. So, likely we will just slop our way through to November and hope for relief 4 years from now.

innocent of political nastiness charges. Half of the problem now claims innocence. Half of the problem solved the problem by cutting down on posts. I'm not sure what the other half did to improve the situation.

Anyway, there's an election coming. It's time to start pushing politics again as this thread shows.

She'll end up with a Cabinet post

I don't see Obama offering her the VP slot. Yes it would help him win in November, but after that I think it would cause him more aggravation than anything else. People question his qualifications as it is; imagine spending the next four (or eight) years with Bill Clinton walking the halls and people speculating as to who is really running things.

I'd like to see him pick Bill Richardson.

Bill Richardson
by James Denison / June 5, 2008 12:07 AM PDT

He's like the Nelson Rockefeller of the Republican party, for the Democrats. Always around, but never gets picked.

He's a possible choice

if they feel that locking in the Hispanic vote is top priority, but I really expect we may see the "dream ticket." The main drawback from the Dems' perspective is Bill!

only means there will be three Presidents in the room at the same time and that situation will be worse than anything that ever happened in SE since 2000.

VP choice should be the next most qualified
by Steven Haninger / June 6, 2008 11:26 PM PDT
In reply to: The 'dream team"

person to be president and not the one most likely to help draw the most votes to the ticket....such as one who can pull in minority votes that wouldn't go there otherwise. Years ago in my state, the Governor and Lt. Governor positions weren't elected together but separately. It was possible for them to be from different parties. I think that probably worked ok until and personal and political party squabbles turned uncivil. No more is there mutual respect between them or will we hear one refer to the other as "My esteemed opponent". It's left the public shortchanged at election time, IMO.

With Hillary as VP....

...I'm afraid it would turn into the "Driving Miss Daisy" presidency, if elected.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
