To most, the idea of a running mate (either Democrat or Republican)is of little importance. But there's limits. No I'm not talking about giving Mike Myers or Michael Moore a slot, but some names in the game will certainly cause an eyebrow - or two - to rise. Joe Lieberman for McCain or Diane Feinstein or even Jesse Jackson for Obama. Oh how bad is the American' recollection of history.
I earnestly believe that the Rev. Jesse Jackson if not already, will be considered a top choice for Vice President of the United States. This is a man that did what Obama is doing today 20 years ago! He won key states and has redefined himself to no ends. Some will discuss that this can't happen b/c of a 'generational gap' -- could this be like the one between George W. Bush & Dick Cheney?
Americans can deny that race will play a part in this election, but I'm talking to everyday Americans and hope to talk to thousands by November 2008 and I am of the belief I will run into more and more Americans, Democratic Americans, that have very strong emotions about this election.
You know I have a great deal of respect for you, but when Jesse Helms passed, I was in shock to read 'may the angels lead him to heaven' on your Facebook profile. I can understand your anti-communism, but you are now openly Gay and freely disclose being in a Gay relationship.
I'm sorry to put you on the spot like this...but how can you have such love for such a bigot and homophobe? Do you consider your sexual orientation somewhat of a fault or a sin? Because I believe Gay & Lesbians are as God created them, no different than how he created Staights. God doesn't make mistakes.
Helms accused Gay Men 'revolting behavior' for simply living OUT, he accuses Gay Men for a behavior that's responsible for the 'proliferation of AIDS,' and refused until the day of his death to deny Gays & Lesbians of a shot at a normal life.
When Helms and other Republicans go on homophobic tirades do you tell yourself they're not really talking about you? I'm just curious if there's an on & off switch that's being hit continuously throughout the day? I'm truthfully, sans any sarcasm, most interested in hearing your thoughts on this.
