This is the first election I've been actively involved in any sort of debate .. and I've been lurking on a lot of political boards.

How about when you hear women say they plan on voting for Kerry/Edwards because they think Edwards is "so good looking"? Give me a break! Since when are looks a measuring stick of whether or not someone is qualified for the job? (after all Ted Bundy was good looking.. and look how he turned out).

yeah - that one kills me too.


I also heard a woman say on the Oprah show the other day (47 yr old professional black woman) that she never voted, never would and honestly didn't care if the right to vote was taken away.


I just about fell off my sofa.

I think it's pretty difficult for those of us who lead busy lives to know 100% of the facts on 100% of the issues.

Hmmm, that's one reason that I have not yet heard from anyone.

I did too when I was watching the same show.


Doesn't it kill you, bookfan, when women say things about voting for good looking men. Hello? Shoot women in the foot, why don't you? Women like that are the reason politicans can apply toward the lowest common denomintor in their tactics and their appearance. Wear the yellow tie because the purple one doesn't do well in the polls.


Also, uninformed voters is the reason the nasty political commericials work so well and the tactics of the swift boat veterans or move on.org work. Uninformed voters will watch one commericial and not do any research.


It is pitiful and an embarrassment but the side product of having a democracy.
