Will he be Mr. President, or Dr. President since he is a doctor?

Would think Mr. since his doctoring has nothing to do with his presidential duties, but there must be some protocol on this.

Well, if it helps, you probably won't have to worry about it for at least five more years!

I think he would prefer to be called Mr. President. Fewer people excel to the Presidency than becoming Doctor.

I believe it would still be "Mr. President." From everything I've seen, Woodrow Wilson, the only previous president to have earned a doctorate (a PhD in Political Science from Johns Hopkins), was addressed as "Mr. President" rather than "Dr. President."

And, along the same lines, if a particular female ever gets to be president, would she be addressed as "Mrs" President, "Ms" President, "Miss" President, "Madam" President, "Lady" President, "Queen" President, or perhaps "Whore" President (my favorite). Regards...Jack

I don't like Hillary, but I would not call her a "whore". Her husband was a dick, but she is just a liberal Democrat, nothing really to worry about.

Yes.

"Ms" President,

Perhaps


"Miss" President,

Probably not

"Madam" President,

No.

"Lady" President,

Definitely not

"Queen" President,

Absolutely not. Royalty titles, such as "king", "queen" "duke", "duchess", etc are specifically outlawed in the constitution from being placed upon any political figure in america. This is not a monarchy, it would be unconstitutional to address any political figure by a royalty term.

or perhaps "Whore" President (my favorite).

I dont find this funny.

A female President, no doubt, would be referred to as "Madam President", just as Maggie Thatcher was referred to as "Madam Prime Minister".

Maybe, JeffM, that Bush's problem is he's dickless, perhaps?  Laugh out loud

Europe would love a Dean presidency. They would see Dean as someone they can control/manipulate more easily than Bush.

Funny, Dean does not strike me as someone who can be easily manipulated and controlled (unless you define manipulation as working with one's allies rather than against them). But, yes Europe would like to see Bush defeated -- but for the same reasons most of the world and a large portion of America would like to see Bush defeated: to end his disatrously reactionary policies and return the US to a path of progress where it belongs.

Face it, Dean is exactly right when he points out that...

"Over a decade ago the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union collapsed, and America didn't fire a shot. There are two reasons for that: one is that we had a strong military and that is important; the other is that most people behind the Iron Curtain wanted to be like America and they wanted to be like Americans. After two and a half years of this presidency, you'd be hard-pressed too many countries in which a majority of people wanted to be like America anymore. One of the most important weapons in our defense is not just a strong military, it's also high moral principles and ideals to which other people around the world aspire."

Well, we really don't have to worry about Dean becoming president because there is virtually no chance.

How do you define "reactionary"? Sounds like some of the old Soviet propaganda to me.

Here is an interesting fact. Pretty soon, the U.S. will no longer be the world's most powerful economy, with the EU expansion. Already, Europe no longer needs the U.S. like it did prior to 1990. During the Cold War, the U.S. was Europe's protector and big brother. Now that they are more equal, it is natural therefore that the relationship will become more antagonistic/competitive than it was before. I would worry if Europe and the U.S. did agree on most issues today, because that would mean that one of them was bending over and taking it in the a$$.

I don't know what's worse; Soviet propaganda or W's propaganda.  Confused

At least with Pravda, the Soviets knew it was propaganda. The W Bush regime has a been more more successful in dupping the U.S. public.
Just read some of the idiotic post by the conservaties on this board.

I still think your a closet liberal Cfalk.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Not in this lifetime, JetService. IF Condi ran, she'd be carrying so much baggage from this administration that she could never get elected.

Personally, I don't think the first female Prez will have the last name Clinton or Rice. I still think that possibility is at least 3 elections away, and we don't know who it will be.

A simple dictionary definition covers it. From dictionary.com:

Characterized by reaction, especially opposition to progress or liberalism; extremely conservative.


"Already, Europe no longer needs the U.S. like it did prior to 1990. During the Cold War, the U.S. was Europe's protector and big brother. Now that they are more equal, it is natural therefore that the relationship will become more antagonistic/competitive than it was before."

I disagree. Globalization may force the US and Europe to work even more closely than they have in the past. This is especially true as China is destined to emerge as a huge economic and political superpower, capable or rivaling both America and the EU.

Yes, there will be plenty of competition, but most of it will exist between companies in Europe and the US, rather than some ideologically driven rivalrly between the two sides of the Atlantic. Europe and the US have economic, political, cultural and historic ties that are far too close for that to happen -- unless, of course, the reactionary policies of Bush and friends continue to escalate the situation.

If Dean wins 2004, then Hillary could only run in 2012, by which time she will be too old to run.

If Dean loses in 2004, then Hillary would run in 2008 standing at least a shot at winning the presidency. Eight years of Dubya would rile up the Dems to kick the GOP out.

So, you conservatives better think twice before you start to wish for Dean's political demise !
