Election 2004

Postby VHawk15 » Thu Dec 04, 2003 6:50 pm

With all this talk about the War, it's got me in the political mood. So what does everyone think about the Democratic canidates and their chance against Bush in 2004?

I am right wing but I don't think that anybody will have a big chance at taking Bush down. People are over-all happy with him I think and his approval rating is still pretty high. I still have no idea who will get the best shot for the democrats though. Hillary will in 2008.

I'm not really sure what to make of the approval ratings we're seeing. Bush is back at 56% or so, but he's negative on most of the key issues (first and foremost Iraq, but also taxes, deficit, health insurance, etc.). It's tough to judge those numbers with a split like that.

In any case, no matter which side you're on, it's early days yet. A lot can change between now and the election.

Should be an interesting year...

As long as Reverend Al Sharpton and/or Joe Lieberman don't come out as the democratic candidate, I think it's fairly open. There are quite a few things wrong with the country that Bush is being blamed for, which could make things interesting.

As Arlo said, it's still early.

Honestly though, doesn't every candidate say he is going to lower taxes and fix health care then proceed to do nothing after they get elected? I'm not sure which way I will vote in 2004 it is still way too early to consider seeing as how we don't know who the Dem will be sending to the plate but every time a candidate promises lower taxes and better health care I have to take it with a grain of salt.

The U.S. has the best health care system in the world.....why does everybody say we have to "fix it"?

The U.S. has the most expensive health care system in the world.....that's why everybody says we have to "fix it".

Their chances? I'd say excellent.
How soon we forget the "hanging chads".

George W. Bush lost the popular vote in 2000, winning the electorial college and the closest election in U.S. history.
And that took 10 days to decide.

Why do you think we're in Iraq?
