    With a few exceptions, VP candidates do not make a winning difference. They might move a ticket a point or two one way or the other. If a Presidential candidate has to rely on a VP to win, then maybe he should not be running.

    All Presidential campaigns make mistakes and learn. IMO, Obama will probably win by a small margin, but he certainly does not deserve to. Romney is a weak candidate but will do way less damage than Obama.

    I tend to agree with you on this one. I do believe McCain was badly hurt in his choice in the last election ... but most of the time it does not make a lot of difference.

    Perhaps you are like me. I really wish one party or the other would run someone I could get excited about. Since that is not the case this year ... again ... I have to select from who is running.

    Yes, I agree with regard to the quality of the two candidates. We just reach different conclusions. I have only lived in two states, Mississippi and Kentucky. I do believe our core political values are heavily influenced by how we were brought up to a degree.

    My wife and I are traveling through WA and OR for several days. It is amazing to see the difference in culture. In KY, every political ad (both parties) tries to assoicate their opponent to Obama. In WA, every political ad (both parties) tries to associate themselves with Obama.

    I agree. Where we grew up and where we have lived our adult lives influence us greatly.

    You are correct. There are great differences in the cultures of the US from area to area. It is not that one area is all good and others evil ... they are just different and each has its strengths and weaknesses. The same is true in cultures in countries around the world. There are very big differences and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    Disagree. Some cultures (and even cities) are under demonic influence.

    That is an interesting comment and would be more interesting to have some specifics. Remember not to confust culture with government and politics.
