    "In human relationships, there is the flirtation stage, followed by what my grandparents called "courting" and, if that works out, marriage. For those who are co-habiting, that was once the order of things, before disorderly social conduct took over.
    In presidential politics, the analogy also works. We have passed the flirtation stage with Barack Obama and now it is time for a serious background check before too many of us follow our hearts instead of our heads and enter into a bad "marriage................."

    AMEN!! I watched his speech last night, what did Obama say that was anything but empty theatrical rhetoric? But his supporters appear to be so infatuated, so "in love" with him....how sad!!!

    Repair the World? Hmmmmm….. I thought we had a savior.

    Since McCain, Clinton, or Obama will be our next president, I am rooting for Obama to be the one. :thumbs:

    And I am well past the infatuation stage. I listened to a speech Obama gave in St. Louis a few days ago and it was full of specifics.

    I agree with you posting. I think the democratic candidate will, thankfully, beat McCain in November. I also lean toward Obama, although Clinton would be alright.

    Obama is a better communicator than Clinton, and this may end up being her Achilles heel.
