    12 years (8 VP, 4 Pres) - Bush (elder)
    8 years - B&H Clinton
    8 years - Bush (younger)

    Seriously, don't we want a different family running this time? Thank God Jeb isn't running. I swear, 12-18 years from now it'll be Chelsea Clinton running against one of the Bush family.

    We've always had political families.

    Adams, Roosevelt, Kennedy....

    If there was a time for change it was 2000.
    It didn't happen then and isn't gonna happen now.

    There was a change back then...well actually 1993. 12 years for papa bush. People seem to forget he had 8 years as VP. However he was a much better man than W would ever dream of being IMO.

    Then another change later.

    Now we need to completely cut out the family politics and move forward.

    I would also say that 2004 YELLED out for change.

    Bush getting four more years was criminal.

    If it was criminal...than it is the Dems who should be serving time.

    It was their own fault they lost that election.

    There is no doubt and every ounce of cynic in me developed as our country proved intellectually asleep in 2004. It is the fault of us all.

    Kerry was a sad choice as candidate, Democrats were unable to rally without the Clintons leading them and we allowed the neo-cons to shyster there way to another 4 years in office even as many of the architects were facing charges.

    It was the Dems that proved intellectually asleep.

    Kerry fell asleep. His advisers tried to shake him awake but by the time he finally got out of the bed...the election was over.

    The way he handled the swift boat ads made me sick.

    Well what are they going to do. I mean Dean sealed the deal with is ranting and raving.

    They provided a crappy group to choose from...even by democratic standards.

    I think he handled a ketchup bottle more than he handled the swift boat ads.

    It is nice to say he was trying to rise above those attacks. But even if you are going to take the high road and not retort with negative attack ads, at the very least you should put out ads of truth or to debunk things.

    They do not always have to be negative attack ads to counter the same.

    I would have liked to have seen Dean over Kerry...irregardless of his Yeehaw.

    That was a none issue to me. But I know it was to all the people who said well you know Bush is a guy I feel like I could have a beer with.

    Great but can he run the country?

    The answer is yes...right into the ground.

    I never...NEVER will understand the rising above it BS.

    If I went to Vietnam and the man I'm running against avoided the war...I'd be damned if I'd let anyone rip on my war record.

    I'd hammer them. I'd get down to their level and then dig underneath if I had too.

    I just said I can understand not wanting to retort in a negative fashion. I doubt I could take the high road if they were attacking me like that, but I can see where the initial idea was to rise above it. Problem was he just ignored the problem all together until it was too late.
