    And there are times when I find myself on the conservative side of issues. (Just not very frequently). Primarily, I tend to be with conservatives on certain issues of gun control, but my ideas on that are a little wacky and unrealistic as I will readily admit. I think that the free market is an engine that drives ingenuity and creativity, but also that is inherently weak to subversion through greed and human fallibility. I believe multi-culturalism is a good thing, but post-modernism as I understand it is ridiculous. I believe science trumps superstition, that liberty trumps security, and that being elite isn't a bad thing. If I want my doctor or lawyer to have the best education possible, I think it is only consistent that I want an educated president as well.

    MSNBC Poll Obama 83 McCain 13
    Fox News online poll: Obama 69 McCain 31
    Obama won among undecided voters in the CBS Poll. 40-26
    CNN/ORC Obama 54 McCain 30

    The other CNN result was the online poll. The CNN/ORC is a national poll with over 600 respondents. One of the more outstanding stats in the CNN/ORC poll in my opinion was this:

    You know it's a rough night for McCain campaign when McCain loses the fox poll.

    Heh... But he lost last time, too. And the debate really WAS boring. This was supposed to be McCain's milleau, but was a snorefest.

    I don't blame you, CW.

    the thing is, Republicans like yourself have to wrestle the party out of the hand sof the like of Rove.

    Good luck with that.

    You saw what they did to McCain when he got in their way.

    The people currently running your party have zero integrity. They are an insult to honest Republicans (and there are a LOT of those, I think)

    Not the rank and file Republican's faults, of course, but you guys DID put them in power because of parety loyalty.

    Once more Obama came across as the more "Presidential"

    Why doesn't John just pack up his wife and her 60 million and stay in his 2.7 million home in Arizona? Oh - Sorry, it's a power thing.

    Hell, he could buy a small island, stock it with old mavericks, and then he would be the trail boss. Getr along little doggies. It's all your misfortune and most of my own.:D
