while i have to admit i loved having and arkansan pres and all the intelligentsia influx into Little Rock and the state in general, and it would be fun again, my caveat is that i wonder about clark's claim to have not been "partisan" until a few years ago (anyway very recently).
HUH??? how can you go forty or fifty years and not see how greedy and corporate/rich-toadying the republican party is? how can you not see the working poor having little education, far below a living wage in most places, skyrocketing college tutition/loan debt, and no health care as a direct problem that stems from anti-democratic political maneuvering?
asleep at the wheel?
also playing the "hey, don't attack me, we're both democrats" thing kind of rankled me...it was a valid question...why the seemingly changeable views re: the war and bush/cheney in general?
i still am at this point rooting for dean...he's alpha male enough to get elected, unlike kucinich (sp?) who is more ideologically simpatico with me.... tho i like the idea of having a poor boy president even more. heard a sound bite from one "working poor" background senator (was it kerry--without tv it's harder to keep the names straight). plus i love a southern drawl on my celebrities.
joy, trying to stay positive about all this.
