    I don't want. Politics is known as a dirty game. Entering in the world of politics will possibly make your life messy.

    Does the topic refer to the U.S. Congress or the Congress Party in India?

    I don't think they could pay me enough to tempt me to serve in the US Congress! I don't care much for venomous snakes.

        I don't mind handling nonvenomous serpents, Doug! Actually, I'd sort of like one as a pet, but hubby would freak. Besides, my Great Danes might eat it! lol

        Doug, I have a question for you. As a liberal, if you HAD to vote for one of the GOP hopefuls, which would you choose? I want someone who's more of a social moderate or liberal while being a fiscal moderate-conservative, with just a little Libertarian thrown in. Does such a critter exist?? lol

          The answer is none. This is probably the only election cycle I have seen as an adult where that's true.

          I could have voted for McCain. There are plenty of republican moderates in history. Nixon founded the EPA.

          The only GOP candidate who hasn't sold his soul to the puppetmasters of the Tea Party is Romney. And I find his platform vile.

            Huntsman hasn't sucked up to the Tea Party although he hasn't made the chart.

              Is there a connection between Huntsman's invisibility and his distance from the Tea Party groups?  Isn't he just Mitt Romney light?

                Not at all. He's hands down the best qualified GOP candidate. After all he served with honor in the Obama administration and with three other presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush0 besides being governor of Utah. He actually knows something about foreign policy. And he's not a hard core social conservative whack job like Bachmann and Sanitorium. Moreover he's an Eagle Scout. However, he's too rational and capable for the current GOP base.

                  Charles Whitman was an Eagle scout too, I'm assuming you remember him.

          I'm right here, habee!  Sadly, I'm not running. 

          You and I think a great deal alike.  It's nice to know there are like minded individuals out there.

    I, too, could have voted for McCain. But not with his Veep choice. roll

    I think you are absolutely spot-on here, Habee (and M2C).
    When the economy is in the tanker we do NOT need a social conservative spreading "Christianity" in government. We need someone who understands economics and can lead us out of this morass.
    For good or bad, the government is NOT a business and can't be run like a business. Meg Whitman (former e-bay CEO) tried that in CA and got smoked. I don't think Romney's business background is playing well.

    Centrist is always in vogue!
