Ugh, I don't know. I would like to think that the country is going to come together again, and that we can regain respect in the world. No matter who wins in 2008, no doubt we are going to have a more well-rounded, level-headed, respectable, intelligent president than the guy currently in office.
I wish I could say that there is one candidate that would be able to win the nomination, the election, and the hearts and minds of the American people. But, I am not sure if the two sides have grown so far apart that we can see that accomplished. I have to say I was disappointed with the way the Dems acted after the midterm elections, I expected more butt kicking and house cleaning, and they really waffled. I really wanted them to at least attempt to impeach Bush, truly. But, maybe in the end it isn't such a bad thing, as they weren't nearly as polarizing as they could have been, and as the Repub majority was.
I am a full-fledged liberal but I used to be able to picture myself voting for McCain, but now he is really pandering for votes and "flip-flopping" on a lot of issues, and I have lost all respect for him. I used to view him as pretty centrist, but now he seems to be jumping on the neo-con bandwagon, hoping it will carry him to the White House. I can not imagine voting for any of the other jokers the GOP has vying for the nomination. I will vote for a Democrat, I like all of them and could vote for any of them.
