What about this idea of Sarge's? Of course, it's not Sarge's idea, but there's this notion that Hillary wants the Dems to lose so she can run in 2008. The idea is that 2012 would be too late for her to run. If Wesley is Bill Clinton's guy, then the idea must be that Clark would win the nomination and then intentionally do something late in the campaign to lose the presidential election. Does anybody other than a right-wing Ditto-head believe this? Is there any news source other than a...

But the biggest effect of this matter, is the white nationalists sites are blowing up. white nationalist activity is increasing. We even had a white nationalist drive-by papering incident that refers to the pizza parlor incident and the need to protect themselves.

As a general rule, most heads of states do not personally lobby for the Olympic games.

Re: Could Unemployment Numbers Cost Obama His Job?

If Obama is clever, he will make the 2012 election about Medicare. Most people - even conservatives don't trust the GOP with Medicare. Hopefully the democrats will give a laser focus about Medicare. They should also point out that the GOP for two years didn't pass any legislation pertaining to "job creation." I don't think a poor economy will seal his doom.

Re: Could Unemployment Numbers Cost Obama His Job?

Its always about the economy when the economy is bad. I think that by the time that the 2012 election is held the economy will be much worse than it is now. The economy is already slowing down from the fatigue of the last stimulus and there is absolutely nothing that can be done now by the government or the FED that will not make the situation even worse.
