    Default A bit different take (m)

    You know how we all look back at who we voted for, why we supported them, and then we look at what went wrong (or right) - how we were wrong or right..

    I thought it would be interesting - who do you support and what do you think they will really mess up when/if voted in (Pres not VPs) ?

    I'll (likely) vote for Obama - I fear ... hmm interesting - I can't think of something that stands out too much - I guess mostly I don't like his health care plan - I like that we are not a socialistic country.

    For me I voted for Bush, what I feel REALLY cheated on/lied it is he was adament he was NOT a "nation builder" (I mean really, could be have been more wrong!?) and also advertised how he works on both sides of the asile.

    For Clinton -- he just couldn't keep it in his pants. Couldn't he just hang on for a few more years ?!? It irritates me more, not that he had an affair, but that he couldn't wait until after he left office, I mean show some respect will ya ? I'm more irritated about the lack of respect it showed to his wife.
    Worse than that though is NAFTA. Wow big big mistake (IMO)

    I worry about Obama's stand against gay marriage.

    I also worry about Obama's healthcare plan but for different reasons that you do. I don't think the plan goes far enough. Universal healthcare is not socialism. Every other industrialized nation has universal healthcare. That doesn't make a country socialist. (England and Canada are socialist?) We would all save money and have better and easier access to healthcare under a universal system but we've allowed the insurance lobby and the politicians who take their money to scare us away from it.

    Default With Obama ...

    I worry that he is too cool and slow to react in a crisis - too cerebral. I also worry about him not being able to admit when he is wrong.

    On policies, I am a deficit hawk and he's more of a traditional liberal. I am hoping that he is more fiscally responsible than GWB or most democrats. That is one thing I really admired about Bill Clinton - he was extremely responsible fiscally, even when he had tough choices to make.

    My biggest fear is Obama will disappoint me by getting involved in something unethical. His meteoric rise is a risk to some extent; I hope he is smart enough to remain above reproach in everything he does.

    On health care, I hope he doesn't over-reach and then crash the way Bill/Hilary did. He needs to get a system in place that provides basic coverage for catastrophic and routine health care, but not junk like chiropractic care.

    LOL One person's junk is another person's cost saving holistic alternative. I think chiropractic care FOR BACK PROBLEMS should be considered the first line of treatment before drugs or surgery are even considered.
