I don't really care who wins the dem nomination and the presidency
If John Edwards wins it, I'll hope that he lives up to his rhetoric.

If Obama wins, I'll hope he lives up to his promise as a leader, and doesn't get pushed around by D.C.

If Clinton wins it, I'll hope that she doesn't feel the need to prove she's as tough as a man when it comes to being CiC.

If Biden wins it, I'll trust him not to let his mouth engage before his brain, and say things that cause controversy.

Essentially, I don't think there'd be appreciable differences in policy between any of them. How they accomplish their goals is a different story.

And no, I don't think anyone else has a chance.

8. Like Rove rotating over an open flame, dripping globs of fat.
Justice would be served.

4. This is pretty much my thought too.

I'm going with the flow for right now because although my vote would count in the primary, I doubt it will matter in the general (red Oklahoma). We shall see.

5. The opposite here.
I haven't chosen a candidate. My vote is the primary won't matter, although I will vote. I am in Illinois, and Obama is a foregone conclusion here. That is okay, though. I am very interested in some downticket races.
In the general, my vote will count here in blue Illinois.

I will be interested to see who my repuke neighbors choose. Some of them are good people, just itching to take a Democratic ballot this time around. We will see if they have the guts to declare themselves.

6. That's odd, really
Since a couple of months ago you were stating that you wanted Kucinich to get the nod. What's even odder is that you keep repeating how you're not for Hillary, yet all the while you have continued to carry water for her.

Sorry cali, but your whole neutral act has worn thin enough that most of us around here can see it, and you, for what it is.

7. no. I said I was planning on voting for kucinich to send a message
to the party that (hopefully) a sizeable number of dems want an immediate end to the war and single payer health coverage. I've never been delusional enough to think that kucinich could get the nom- or even should get it. I defend Clinton from bullshit and sexism- which alas I see too much of. I'll continue to do that, and to criticize her as I frequently do- sans the hate so many wallow in.

As for you, cupcake, I haven't a anything but contempt for people who purport to speak for "most of DU". It simply demonstrates that you're so weak that you can't simply speak for yourself; you need an legion of nameless others to bolster your opinion. How pathetic can you possibly be? Oh, and I could give a shit what you think, pumpkin.

13. LOL! You are so cute cali when you get called on your bullshit
You put up such a fierce front of denial, you sputter, you spew. It is priceless.

But hey, keep on doing what you do. Just don't be surprised when you get called on your bullshit.

11. People can change their mind as election day approaches
Kucinich was my "conscience vote" at first, until he jumped the shark and supported Ron Paul. I support anyone who wins, but I think Edwards and Biden represent the same old, same old. This country is too diverse to keep having the same type of president, over and over again.

10. I hope it's Obama or Clinton. Just so I can feel hopeful about a win
for a change. I'm tired of having to hold my nose at the voting booth. Honestly, I still think a little bigotry is behind the out of control bitterness many liberals are throwing towards Obama&Clinton.

12. Sadly, I agree, and I don't think it's conscious.
I'd least like to see Clinton is the WH, but not because I think she's repuke light. I really don't want to see Clinton redux are the attendent circus that will accompany it. I want to move beyond bushes and Clintons.
