The more I see of the rest of the GOP candidates, the more I'm liking Fred.

I suspect he's going to be the guy to beat in the South, where outside of Florida, I don't think Romney and Giuliani are going to go over too well.

And McCain is going to continue being the Democrats' favorite Republican. His loss.

You're a Westerner, which way do y'all's winds blow?

"What if Hillary Clinton had gone to Moscow State University and married a promising young apparatchik?"

That question would imply that she DIDN'T do the Fabian Socialist equivalent...

Not perzackly. My parents (and all my relatives) are from Virginia, I was born in Kentucky and raised in Florida, visiting my relatives EVERY year.

My ancestors are Scots-Irish.

So what do you think?

I don't know, will Fred play in the West?

I don't live there.

Well, there is definitely nothing phony about Fred, that's for sure. I just don't agree, for the most part, with what he stands for.

Hey, anyone catch the Hillary "playing the fear card" speech in New Hampshire last week?

I'm an outsider here. The people I work with like Fred, but I work in an inherently conservative industry.

As for the rest of the region? Hell if I know.

OT here for a second, but I had to ask-where in Kentucky, Kevin?

jsid-1199734824-585965  Kevin Baker at Mon, 07 Jan 2008 19:40:24 +0000

Lexington. But we moved to Titusville, FL when I was four.

Ah, got it. I grew up in Campbellsville, about 80 miles away. Another instance of small world syndrome! :) I now return you to your regularly scheduled and topical discussion.

I'm a Tucsonian (is that a word?) and I like Fred. He is the ONLY honest candidate in this race. Of the Republicans, give me anyone one but McCain. I've voted for McCain and Kyle in every election, but no more! If he can't get immigration right being from Arizona, how can he figure out anything else more complicated?

BTW, Hail from Winchester.

Well, I'm originally from Boston, but I live in Scottsdale.

Just about everyone whose political views I respect, is, reluctantly or enthusiastically, for Fred.

I vote in Idaho, since that's my home of record. And I'd vote for Fred in a heartbeat. But I haven't been home in three years now so I don't know which way the wind is blowing back there.

Mark - I try to avoid anything that has to do with the Clintons, period. As a whole, I find them to be despicable people, both of them, who will do anything and everything to gain as much power as possible. I try to be pretty open minded about people as a whole, but the Clintons have given me years worth of reasons not to trust them, look at them, listen to them, or have anything to do with them.
