    I think it's really to early to call that.

    No kidding, at least let me vote against Kerry first, then I can start thinking about 2008 and whether I will finally find somebody to vote for.

    I think Pat is more of an isolationist than a conservative. i mean he agrees with alot of what we stand for but i think he misses alot of things like the vitalness of winning the war on terror.

    Rudy Giuliani, will NEVER get the GOP nomination for President unless he suddenly changes his views on abortion and gay rights (he is pro-choice and supports gay rights). The religious right picks the GOP Presidential candidate. That's the primary reason that Bush beat McCain in 2000. Bush kowtows to the religious right and McCain doesn't.

    You know, it's funny how in the other thread you were talking about how "honest" Kerry is, now you say Bush was kowtowing. Kerry is the worst I've seen about trying to be all things to all people.

    "I'm pro-choice, but I'm pro-life."
    "I'm pro-gun, but I'm anti-gun."
    "I'm pro-war, but I'm anti-war."
    "I realize the importance of international allies, but I'm going to insult and degrade the ones we have."

    Kerry has kowtowed to the undecided voters that lean conservative to the point of pissing off the majority of his base. Bush is not kowtowing, he is following what he believes. We know where Bush stands, Kerry is all over the place.

    You left one out:

    "I'm for fair elections, Unless I lose."
