Election 2004

Wed Feb 28, 2001 11:35 am

Okay, I got the following candidates from my dawg SuperFly:

Al Gore

Hillary Clinton

Gray Davis (Gov. of California)

Paul Wellstone (Sen. Minnesota)

I havent done much research on the last 2. Can anyone verify that they are GOP's?

Thanks,
TWA

If you got these candidates from Superfly, rest assured, they are far from GOP's. Lucky for those of us concerned with America's Future, Superfly is not picking the candidates for 2004.  Big grin

Gray Davis is a Democrat I am pretty sure. I don't know about Wellstone.

I think there will be a runoff for the Dem nomination between Davis and Clinton...Clinton will probably win and it will be a close race between her (with VP candidate Gore) and Dubya (if he was a good prez) or some other GOP candidate (if he wasnt).

I hope Hillary runs, she would win by a land slide for two reasons:
She would be the first woman, everybody wants a woman president, since it would be the first.
Every likes Hillary for the most part, right?

So she should run.

Al Gore woudln't win, everybody got mad after this whole recount thing and he would quit the race, he woudln't have a chance.

G W. is the GOP President and he will be up for re-election in 2004. Therefore the GOP will not find another candidate to run against him.
Republicans tend to be more loyal to there leaders more than more progressive parties.

Paul Wellstone is my favorite but he would be percieved as too liberal by the right-wing media and the corporate pigs who control the media.

Hillary Clinton I like because conservatives would have a fit if or when she wins.  Smokin cool

Al Gore embarassed himself too much in this last election.

Gray Davis, our closet republican but registered Democratic gov. has a very broad appeal, no enemies and can win in large states and attract moderate GOP voters.

I'll just be happy to see Bush (part II) gone.

A gawsh, I'm a democrat, and the thought of Hilary running for office scares me, she's annoying as hell, and in my opinion wouldn't stand much of a chance. Oh well, just my opinion. She's better than Buchannan I suppose, and bush :-P.

Hillary Clinton probably will not for in 2004.
The reason is because the rule is that you must win re-election in 2006 in the Senate to be considered a political force.

I predict Al Gore or Gray Davis to win in 2004.

Derek, not everyone likes Hillary, and there is no chance in HELL she would win in a land slide. Of Superfly's choices, I would have to support Gray Davis, but this guy can't figure out how to get enough electricity to Northern California, so I really don't want to see him in charge of the U.S., closet Rep. or not.

Speaking of embarassment, everytime you make one of your one sided comments against Bush, your the one who embarasses himself We're Nuts.

I think Gray Davis will get us out of this power crunch some way or another.
It's not really in his power considering a lot of the energy is controlled by Texas oil men(friends of G.W.).

Gay is our only chance of having an electable President so far...

Does anyone fancy the chances of Christine Todd Whitman (recently confirmed as EPA head)? I'd be surprised if she wins the Republican Party Nomination, given her views on abortion and the environment. However, if she was nominated, I think she'd be a boon for the Republican party, swaying a lot of people with conservative economic ideas who vote for the Demos purely due to matters of social policy. I think Ms. Whitman could really sway a lot of female votes. Of course, if Buchanan or another ultra-conservative gains any steam, things might not look so rosy for her. We could have the same "spoiler effect" that was demonstrated with Nader in 2000, which obviously backfired for those who are strong Democrats. On the whole, Nader and Gore received considerably more votes than Bush and Buchanan.

Just slightly off topic, but what happened to all those actors and other crazy left-wing people who said they would leave the country if Bush won? Have they left? Anybody know?

If Hillary were to run and win in 2004 (highly unlikely) I think I'd leave the country!  Smile

Also, how is it that Texas oilmen are at fault regarding the current power problems in California? Aren't all the environmentalists at fault here? Afterall, they are the ones who have all been lobbying against the building of electric-generating facilities in California, causing more dependence on electricity from Washington and Oregon.

Gray Davis is a democrat, I am not sure if any one said that before, I just read a few of the replys. With the whole power crisis we are having I am not tooo impressed, but hopefully he will fix it up, soon.

Honestly, I don't see how the power crisis is the fault of Gray Davis. He was Lieutenant Governor at the time Deregulation was implemented in 1996. I believe California was the first state to implement a program after the FERC decision. Anyway, I don't think Mr. Davis had much of anything to do with the decision to deregulate California, although to be honest, I'm not sure. There's only so much he can do to get us out of it.

So, far I haven't decided how good a job he's doing. But, it certainly isn't as easy as some of you make it out to be.

All of those names send shivers down my spine. Mr. Bush outlined a pretty good plan last night. Lets see if he can put it into action. It looks like some of you people have the so-called Daschlegephardt disease. The dems sounded so phony last night.

Anyways, Bush is becomimg more natural in his speaking.

I was reading somewhere that Arnold Schwarzenegger may actually make a run for California Gov on the Republican ticket in 2002. I can't remember his wife's name, but I think she has some relation to the Kennedys, which I find rather interesting.

When interviewed about running, Arnold said, "Oh yeah, I think about it many times." He claims he wants to be a "compassionate conservative"

He needs to brush up on his Spanish too...  Big grin

Not true. If you knew anything about the crisis at all, you would know that.

>I can't remember his wife's name

Maria Shriver of Dateline NBC fame. She is part of the Kennedy family.

>If Hillary were to run and win in 2004 (highly unlikely) I think I'd leave the country!

I would too... if there was any place to go. I believe the USA is the last place where someone who likes a small, unintrusive government can live.

What does Maria Shriver have to do with anything?
She is only a reporter/messenger!
She has no control over what she can report!
No legislative power!

Up until ten years ago, you could have gone to South Africa during Aparthied. I am sure you'd loved it back then!

Bill Clinton has proved that no matter how checkered your past, or hell, present, that you can still be a player in politics.

Only in America could a rich, incompetent person who mispronounces words frequently (I counted two in the last minute of his State of the Union address) become president.

I don't despise conservatives, I agree with some republican/conservative policies, I just cannot stand Bush. The man is a complete moron. This election proves that the republicans will stop at nothing to get their man in office.
