    You know Xeno, your title was quite different than the article. :eusa_eh:

    Also, not sure if this has been done before so directly? However, Obama is right in one part, Paterson is not going to win if he runs for reelection.

    Will all of you spare your faux outrage? You don't think the heads of political parties never told a candidate or someone in office NOT to run for political office?

    Should Obama do this? No, let Paterson learn the hard way.

    However, don't act like this shit hasn't been done before. The willful ignorance is so obvious.

    According to the N.C GOP:

    Oh my god! McCain! Preamble! 10th! WH! *Head spins*

    Be sure to let McCain you think this is unacceptable too Modo.

    It's pathetic that you see nothing wrong with attempted violations of the Constitution. Look, skippy, you provide us with an example of a past president who has made such a request to a gubernatorial candidate, then we can talk.

    Until then, your lack of concern for the document on which this country is based is not only pathetic, but frightening to all who value the Constitution. If there ever is uncontrolled unrest, you and your pathetic and shameful views would be best served to keep a low profile. There are a lot of persons who swear an oath to value it.

    Just sayin'....

    so, asking them not to run an ad is now equal to asking a candidate(a sitting governor) not to run?

    Nope, both are state politics however. If you're going to be outraged by the big stuff, might as well be outraged by the little stuff too. Otherwise the little stuff could turn into the big stuff.

    Obama is practically the head of the Democratic Party. HE is the reason they won this election and won so many seats this November. The Democrats were knocking on death's door before he came around. He was simply telling Paterson that it would be in the best interest of the Democratic Party for him to not run. This is a case of politics, nothing unusual. To act like if it is so would be willfully ignorant.

    Only one with such synaptic malfunctioning as yours could equate running an ad to a gubernatorial election.
