If Hillary Clinton is such a shoo-in for her party's 2008 presidential nomination, then a new Florida poll is something for Democrats to worry about.

<quoted text>Interesting. I am gratified to see so much of the country reaching the conclusion I have had for many years concerning political leaders. It is the reason I stopped being politically active concerning candidates... up until very recently.
Should the majority indicate "none of the above" it doesn't move us any closer to a solution though and so I don't really see it as having value unless it is translated into actions that do.
I encourage everyone to push for accountable government, even if we disagree on issues, by leaning on who is in power so that this issue becomes part of the ongoing political dialogue. At least with some semblence of accountable government we would know where we stand and not have additional hidden problems on top of the ones we already have. I don't believe everyone in politics is dishonest or immoral--- but way too many are and they have been setting the "dysfunction family" atmosphere to American politics since Nixon resigned and its only grown from there. Those folks need to be pressured to change or go. And how that happens is we send them unmistakable messages that we are paying attention, finally.
I mean, what do you think that "none of the above" accomplishes apart from being amusing?
The reason the political system in this country is "business as usual", is because 50-60% or so of the voting public has comlete, year around apathy, and the other 20-30% partial apathy for 360 days a year and make up their mind the last 5 or so days before the election. If every body were to go to the polls, the politicians will pay atention, and the influence of the special interests would be somewhat diluted.

If by adding "none of the above" would create enough interest to get the "disillutioned" away from the tv and into the polls, then I am all for it. And if none of the above, were to win and the election were to be canceled, then I am sure the powers to be would sure pay attention.

Hilary is a joke. When her husband was finally shown to be a liar, all she said was 'he fooled me'. Her excuse for voting pro Bush agenda's early on, are "he fooled me." You really want some one who admits she is easily fooled running the country?
She condemns Bush for not warning the American public before 9/11 that it could happen, siting facts that CIA and other Agencies had information for (her words) Many many months. Yet, all this information had been around since 1999 I believe. Wasn't it a Clinton in office for most of that time?
But I guess Hilary didn't want to deprive Bill of his Monica time long enough for HIM to warn anyone....
I am not saying I agree with Bush and what he does.
But we already had 8 years of Hilary. I don't want her back for more.
I agree - Hillary already was president - do we really need to go through that again!

Don't despair about the loss of connection between the government and the electorate. Glimmers of hope are around us.

The SCAM-nesty bill for illegal aliens went down to defeat because of a loud, sustained multi-media protest from the people. If it were up to the politicians, we'd have 20+ million criminals welcomed as citizens tomorrow.

Discussion on blogs and talk radio are new and abundant. Stuff that the politicians used to get away with are now examined in detail and everybody knows about it. Example: the majority in Congress is hoping that the attention fades and William Jefferson (icebox cash) will be able to keep his seat in Congress. Notice how investigation is proceeding at an excruciatingly slow pace? With forums and talk radio, I doubt they will be able to bury it and keep him there.

So keep the pressure up. Stay active, and VOTE. It DOES matter, and not voting does NOTHING.
