The Irish are such clear thinkers:
'We, in Ireland, can't figure out why you in the US are even bothering
to hold an election.
On one side, you have a bitch who is a lawyer, married to a lawyer,
running against a lawyer who is married to a bitch who is a lawyer.
On the other side, you have a war hero married to a good looking woman
who owns a beer distributorship.'
E-Mail I thought I'd share it seemed to settle the whole issue of who
to vote for.
the only problem is the war hero is to old and on not as sharp as he used
to be.and the bitch is gone. the young and vigorous Harvard educated lawyer
is the heroes opponent. the hero does not even have a chance.
But just think about it for a minute
The 'best" president in recent time was Regan who slept through his two
terms, this guy might be even better, he is so boring that he might die and
nobody notice until the next election. Bush and Chaney are for oil the
prez's wife is Beer maybe she'll promote more breweries. The Harvard Lawyer
is either Baptist or Moslem neither are for beer. Now who do you want a
prez who will leave us alone and favor beer or a prez who wants to get
involved and opposes beer?
Yeah, the war hero doesn't have a chance against an orator and such an
articulate quick-witted person like this:
"But," you'll say, "anyone can get tired and confused after a long period
of campaigning and stress."
OK, would you be saying that if it was McCain who sounded this clear and
articulate? My money would be on people saying, "yep, he's exhibiting
signs of dementia, how can we entrust our country to him?"
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough

Again IMHO, other countries with a Parliament system, the PM tends to be
a very articulate, persuasive, and a fast on his/her feet logical
debater, because that is how you get to be the leader of your party in

If you look at all the people who started out running for President of
the USA back Last November, the two left standing are exactly the two who
had the best 'whatever-it-is' to be the two left standing. (I know, not
clear!) Since 1968 (Richard Nixon) the Advertisers and Marketing people
have ruled the national elections. (there is actually a book called
"Selling of the President" about that election and US Cigarette
Advertising firm working for the Republican Party.)
The President of the USA is not a legislator, he/she is the commander and
executive of the Government. This is a leadership role. Training should
be command leadership, like being a Governor of a State, a General, or a
