    There have been quite a number of threads speculating on who will win or lose the Democratic nomination.

    For those who claim to be conservative, for limited government, national sovreignty, balanced budgets, controlled borders and enforcement of immigration laws, why would it make any difference who gets the Democratic nomination? What different result are you going to get between Clinton, Obama, and Edwards?

    It seems we ought to be much more concerned about who will get the Republican nomination, and that there will be a difference from the Democrat.

    You deserve a pat on your double-pagan back for figuring that out.

    Every democrat candidate's goal for this country is full fledged socialism.

    Only some of the republicans stand for liberty & personal responsibility.

    I guess it comes down to a "beatability" question, as far as the democrat candidates go. If Bill Richardson wins the nomination, he will be a formidable foe, he's the only democrat candidate with any experience. But he won't have the media machine behind him that Clinton, Edwards, or Obama will have.

    I cannot imagine any democrat candidate winning an actual debate (not the shams we see from the drive by networks), against anyone of the GOPers, without running it. We know the media wants a democrat in.

    In theory, the more liberal a Democrat is, than some moderate Dems and Middle of the Roads would be more likely to vote for a Republician. (or third party)

    Works the other way. If a Republician is Ultra Conservative, than liberal Republicans and Middle of the Roaders may be more likely to vote fora Democrat (or third party)
