    Anyone think, JF Kerry will accept being second man? This article is being written by a judge, and he's spouting about stolen elections..:rolleyes:

    After months of speculation, U.S. Senator Barack Obama has finally admitted that he is thinking of running for president in 2008. The first term senator from Illinois says he’ll make his decision after the November elections. This announcement didn’t surprise many. Osama's name and the word "president" have been linked since he wowed the nation at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. In fact, it seemed Obama was the only one saying he wouldn’t run for president.

    Now that his tune has changed, the criticisms have begun: His challengers have repeatedly said Obama doesn’t have enough experience working on national policy; he doesn’t have any experience working on foreign policy. To some degree, this is true. But, over the years, many presidents have lacked certain skills. To compensate, they chose a running mate to fill in the gaps. If Obama chooses to run, U.S. Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, would make up for any holes in Obama’s experience. :cool: Obama, once a community organizer and civil rights attorney, spent many years fighting for the needs of the poor. In his current role as a senator, he focuses on bringing jobs and economic growths to Illinois. Obama understands the needs of the average American and has worked tirelessly to make sure they have access to the opportunities they need to succeed. Kerry, on the other hand, brings a different set of experiences to the table. Currently in his fourth term as a senator, the Massachusetts Democrat is considered one of the country’s most respected voices on national security and international affairs. Combined, Obama and Kerry represent a political ticket that fights for the rights and needs of all Americans while, at the same time, realizing America must work closely with other nations to advance a global agenda.

    Kerry would have won the 2004 election if it hadn’t been stolen from him. Ohio, the state that gave President Bush the electoral votes he needed to win a second term in office, reported many voting irregularities. Election officials in that state reportedly failed to process registration cards Democratic voter drives generated, and mostly Democratic precincts didn’t receive an adequate numbers of voting machines.

    Though Kerry is considered a potential Democratic candidate in the 2008 elections, his running for the office a second time doesn’t make sense from a political standpoint. Kerry’s perceived lack of personality was always seen as a weakness. Obama, considered one of the country’s greatest orators, has both the vision and the charisma to make a strong run for the White House. Senator Hilary Clinton’s name has also been mentioned -- numerous times -- as a possible candidate. But her experiences as the first lady during the Bill Clinton years make her more of a liability to the Democratic party than an asset.

    Campaigning for the 2008 presidential election hasn’t even gotten started, but the race is already shaping up to be an interesting one. If the Democrats want to make a serious push for the office, they must be strategic about the alliances they form within the party. If they play it smart, America could finally begin to move away from the elitist conservative mentality that has led it astray for the last six years.

    I think if they did run as the DFL chosen pair, it would mean a bigger victory for us in '08. Kerry just can't take a hint.

    In your opinion Judge. I have heard the Senator say nothing that proves he understands what the avg American needs to do for oppurtunities..Maybe he said they need help in paying for college. I think there are programs in place for this already...Anywas..Next....

    OK...This is using what is called "weasel words"...Considered one of the country's most respected voices on national security and international affairs BY WHOM EXACLTY??? This is pure opinion being passed as fact. This makes me think of the term "NEW AND IMPROVED".....Um:huh: .....If it's new, how can it be improved....If it's improved it can't be new... By the way...I don't hate Barack Obama...Seems like a fine man...But I can already hear the conspirators that bring up the fact his name reminds you of Osama Bin Laden:dev1:
