I think it is time for a woman to lead this country.

*** I would rather have a "moody, over-sensitive" president than one who is playing "hide the cigar" with the White House interns.

The media doesn't care about their emails or pasts, finding something important would be in conflict with their agenda.

I'd prefer neither. Is that really too much to ask for our elected officials?

I was watching Anderson Cooper this post weekend and there was a segment about the emails. It seems that there was nothing (so far) that they found that they could use against her. They sounded sooooooooooooo disappointed. The biggest news was when Piper got her Mom's Blackberry and was trying to arrange a play date with her friend. Oh, the scandal!!

I wonder if Obama's emails when he was a senator would ever be made public? Wouldn't you love to Jake a look at Weiner's, Edwards', or Bill Clintons? I'll bet you could find a bit of dirt in those....ha ha.

*** How so? What if I include Olympia Snow and Susan Collins as post menopausal candidate?

Nah...it just ups the "ewwwwwwwww" factor.

*** of course there is some truth to it. If I'm being honest, since high school the first time I was called out on my mood the guy that did it was right on. He was one of 2 boys of 6 kids.
I don't like when my husband blames every bad mood on my period. Of course he and my kids have been responsible for a lot. There is nothing worse that a family that doesn't clean up after themselves, especially after I've just cleaned.

Bachmann has tossed her hat into the ring. What is you like about her.
I checked out her congress website- her presidential site is not complete yet. On the issues I find myself agreeing with her a lot. I'd like to hear more. I like her positions on education, health care, taxes, and wasteful spending. I need more detail on what she would do about illegal immigrants that are here presently, otherwise I think her overview on immigration is good.
I think she is an intelligent woman and would like to see her stay away from the hyperbole and rhetoric that she got involved in with the 'death panels' accusation. (she had some valid concerns re: Ezekiel Emanuel and his positions, but unfortunately she got swept into the circus part of it all which I think makes it more difficult for the people that really need to hear your message to engage. (meaning those of us that are more in the middle of the political spectrum and those that don't like being manipulated by politicians)

I don't think in the end Palin is a viable candidate. The left has been too successful in stereotyping her and the media isn't interested in her either, unless there is a juicy story. Consider the emails that have been released. It's been 3 years since her run for VP, the media was there as the emails were rolled out. We haven't heard much about them since, with the exception of conservative talk shows. No smoking guns to implicate Palin lunacy further means it's not a story, not even mention of the death threats she was receiving.
As for the other candidates. I was a Romney fan in 2008. Health care is a challenge for him, however what I think many people miss is that he has 1st hand experience with an attempt at reform that included a mandate to cover all residents. It wasn't perfect, but it was a start and there is no reform that will get it all right on the 1st pass. Not even close.
Herman Cain has also raised my interests as well as Pawlenty.
