    Okay, Rogues... if it were up to us, who would win the Presidential election in 2008?

    I realize many of our members may not be of voting age, but let's assume there are no age restrictions.

    Barack Obama? I'm pretty young so I don't know a whole lot about politics, but from what I've heard, he seems like he would make a great president.

    I'd probaly be happy with anyone but Hillary.

    I just saw the speech by Obama. Very moving. This guy has my vote- he even said:
    He will usher in a new breed- a new generation- of American politics. Besides, all the other candidates are what? 1,000 years old, and have already been in DC for far too long. They would not bring change- they would just keep it status quo. Obama is the choice - the voice for a new generation. A generation tired of the incompitence and misplaced trust in the current atmosphere that envelops Washington. A generation tired and weary of gross spending by the govenrment, and barley getting by on minimum wage. I will vote for Obama- I will vote for change.

    Ultimately, it's going to narrow down to Clinton and Obama. And I'm gonna be damned if i see a person like clinton take presidency. Besides, having a black president would be a much bigger thing then a woman president (no offense meant). If we want to have a woman president, we dont need a closed minded hoidy-toidy who gives it instead of recieves it.

    Either one would be a first to mark in the history books. But I agree, if we're going to put a woman in the White House, she needs to be able to stand up to scrutiny just like everyone else. Hilary doesn't stand up IMO.

    Here's Obama at the Dem convention in 2004. Not the speech from today, but I bet that one is up before the end of today.

    Re: Rogue Forums 2008 Presidential Election

    Its funny how the media is presenting Obama as a God. I even saw one article showing Obama is a relative of George Washington (As if that meant anything. About a million other Americans are also related to Washington, including the current president).

    Obama has yet to actually take a hard stance on much of anything. Basically, he's no different than the other politicians.

    Obama...

    Though I must admit after watching "An Inconvenient Truth" part of me is still hoping Al Gore will throw his hat into the ring.

    You can write him in if you want. But I doubt he'll stand up to Obama. I think once Obama's speech gets more feedback a lot more opinion will sway his way.

    No write in votes for me. The last two elections have shown us that we can't afford to waste even a single vote. Obama is my choice. I guess a part of me just wonders what the world would be like now if the candidate who won the popular vote back in 2000 would have been named president.

    Yes. He still hasn't lost his skill at agitprop.

    Though Inconvient Truth still pales in comparison to his inventing the internet.

    What would we be doing right now without Mr. Gore's wonderful invention?

    Al Gore DID NOT invent the internet, good lord, people. It was a few kids in college who wanted to have fun. That's how it all started. Al Gore is about as computer literate as Baby Huey.

    As a non-use, and semi-inebrtiated, UK citizen, my vote would go to Obama if I weere a USian, not a UKian.

    Your sarcasm detector might need some... tweaking.

    Though in a way, it is kind of sad. Apparently the poor fool actually tried to get people to believe he invented the internet.

    It's going to come down to Obama and John McCain, I think. Unless Guliani can pull some good tricks out of a hat.

    Newt hasn't "officially" joined the race, and I don't think he will. I don't know much about the other Repubs.

    Re: Rogue Forums 2008 Presidential Election

    The bloke from Australia had a go at Obama today. He's a strong supporter of 'Ol Bushy- big surprise. The rebuttle Down Under came on the wings of an arguement that pulling troops out of Iraq is a bad idea. I somewhat agree with that, actually, but for it to come from someone who has less than 1,000 troops on the ground, and a strong supporter of the current office holder, well... I view his opoinion as 'outside' and unwanted.

    That's classified. If I told you I'd have to "disappear" you.
