    Today was the last day of early voting for TN primary. Today I switched parties (just for today) so that I could vote for Hillary and perhaps help her beat Obama in our state. It's called strategy, but I may have to repent about my vote.:laugh:

    Wonder if anyone else has thought of doing that just for the primary???? Am I on to something? :saint:

    I find it interesting that LE has decided that she wants Hillary Clinton as president. :)

    It is clear as crystal to me after tonight's debate that either Obama or Clinton will make a much, much better president of these United States than John McCain would be.

    I am not far away from declaring that I will vote for either of these two Democrats in November against McCain. Almost, but not there as of yet.

    Either that or the reverse, liberals vote in the Republican primary. It happens all the time.

    To be fair, I'd have to say that most people outsmart themselves.

    Maybe you won't be one of them.

    According to the latest polls, Senator Clinton should win Tennessee comfortably on Tuesday. If she doesn't, then she will probably be in serious trouble nationwide.

    www.gallup.com/poll/104095/Gallup-Daily-Tracking-Election-2008.aspx


    With the Democratic Party allocating delegates proportionally based on vote percentages(unlike a lot of GOP states that are winner take all) it is likely that both Clinton and Obama will pretty much split evenly the delegates in Tuesday's primaries nationwide and this race will continue on for weeks to come.

    No. I've never thought about switching parties to vote for someone as a trap or a trick. My vote is for the candidate I want to win, not for a candidate I want to lose.

    Hillary is farther ahead in TN than in NH. Unless the pollsters are 4th graders, or Alabama graduates, then I'd go ahead and put TN in her column.

    LE, I do play chess. I love it when the little Horsies jump over the little critters, don't you? :type:

    Seriously, I just would rather not meddle in another party's business. It's a "Do unto others.." thing for me. But to each his/her own.

    Holy Cow! You can't possibly imagine that Billary is to be preferred over Obama!

    I really don't see McCain beating either of these two. What is the GOP thinking?

    McCain is their best bet, but most likely the Democrat will win in a landslide, no matter who the GOP runs.

    I think Hillary has had a wonderful strategy targeting Republican voters in TN. We've had at least 8-10 calls, recorded & live, plus stuff in the mail. She has pulled out all the stops. Come the REAL election, I won't be voting for her, though. I've run into a few other Republicans who are doing what I did, makes me wonder how many others there are.

    PS: We should play Internet chess some time. :)

    If you are pro-abortion -- pro higher taxes -- pro weak defense -- pro illegals being allowed to become citizens of our great country -

    Then by all means - vote for Hillary or Obama - and you'll get all of the above - as well as several other things that will weaken our country!

    Hillary has called 5 times today so far, about 8 times total, that I was here for, plus mailings. Some were from Jack Nicholson and Bill Clinton, most were from Hillary and some unnamed staff members. 3 hours to go in my state's primary.

    LadyEagle, I hope whatever strategy you are trying works.

    Happy to play chess, Internet or otherwise, with anyone.

    I just woke up from working the midnight shift. I had the TV on one of the news channels for background noise. Glenn Beck said he would vote for Hillary or Obama before McCain. His explanation was that if we are going down the liberal path, let the Democrats take the fall, not another Republican fall. It is a point to ponder.

    As I've said before, why settle for the cheap imitation when you can get the real thing?

    But, I like Sen. McCain. I just know that the GOP is never going to go for the kind of health care policy that will save our national economy while insuring the uninsured.
