I cannot believe we're going to have to revisit the idiocy of a Kerry and/or Gore candidacy. WTF is wrong with the Dem party? Can't they at least MoveOn to St. Hillary or one of their ubiquitous Reverends?

Hey, thanks for the pictorial reminder there. It's OK, my molars have just about stopped grinding now.

No, they can’t. The Democrats simply do not have anyone halfway presentable to both the Robert Rubin faction and that of the Daily Kos. As I’ve said repeatedly, the Dems are royally screwed. They can’t beat the Republicans in a national election. The GOP can only beat itself.

David Thomson said...

The Democrats don’t dare point to a fresh faced standard bearer. To do so, would publicly disclose the irreconcilable difference within the party. I am apparently the only one highlighting the unbridgeable gap between Robert Rubin and the Daily Kos. These folks will never come together to combat the Republicans. If push comes to shove, Rubin will either sit on his hands---or even support the Republican presidential nominee.

DT,

It doesn't really matter if they find a thread the needle candidate. The Dems are emulating the demographic suicide that Truepeers noted in the post below. The replacements for the Yellow Dogs have been going down abortionists sinks for thirty years (admittedly, on a 60/40 basis) and the nihilist no growthers are justly reaping what they have so assiduously sown.

Who is to say that the world will not be a better place when they reach their objective?

Blue state Democrats indeed don’t raise many children. One to two per family is the most they will consider. This is another reason why the Republicans will continue having the odds solidly in their favor to reach 270 electoral votes every 4 years. The 2010 census should also help them to pick up a few more congressional seats.

MHA:

'nuff seen. Especially revealing are the pics contrasting GWB and Laura with JFK and Terayza.

To me it looks like the difference between a marriage and a merger.

Kerry is such a pussy.

Sorry, but it is the God's honest truth.

BTW, Evan Bayh voted against Hayden and is hedging on supporting the Protection of Marriage Act. Sounds to me like the young man from Indiana might be looking toward the future. Fat chance he will get anywhere.

All those politicians are the same. They are all too big for their britches. Very few of them have any realistic hope of any future beyond where they are today, but it's what they live for.

Question: when was the last time a Senator won the Presidency? When was the last time a Senator made a good President?

terrye said...

Well let me see, the last Senator to become President was Jack Kennedy [I think?]. To make a good President? I dunno, it is a matter of opinion. Truman maybe.

Rick Ballard said...

"when was the last time a Senator won the Presidency?"

Nixon - '72

"When was the last time a Senator made a good President?"

Truman - '45-'53

I don't regard Kennedy or Johnson as having had 'good' terms as President - somehow '60-'68 just doesn't ring any bells with me.

I was thinking that Nixon was a Congressman. How soon we forget.

Knucklehead said...

OK, y'all are going to have to help me out here. When was Nixon a member of the Senate (other than his role as President of the Senate when he served as VPOTUS)?

He should be listed along with Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy as a US President assassinated in office.
