nope

I like the fact that I still have a choice when it comes to my body.



Wow. You have your choice when you lie down with a person or choose what method of protection to use. I believe the "choice" you're actually referring to is you having the power decide whether another human being should live or die.

NO!

I am not voting for McCain partly because of her. Her views are way too out there for me, and there is a good chance that she COULD be president, given McCain's health history and age.

Her being president frightens the be-jesus out of me!Chat Icon

Before I can answer, that would depend on who else is running.



I purposely didn't go there because I want to see what people think of her as a potential president in her own right. So would you vote for her based on her policies and stance on the issues that are important to you.



A vote, by definition, is a formal expression of preference. How can I have a preference if I don't know the other choice?



Not necessarily. Many people vote AGAINST a candidate. I didn't vote FOR Kerry, I voted AGAINST Bush.

When asked 4 years ago, I admitted that I wouldn't vote FOR Kerry. In the context of this thread, there is no need for an opponent. By stating that it depends on who they were running against, it leans towards you not voting FOR Palin.



I feel there are more qualified people to elect as the President of the United States, but if those people are not an option, then yes I would vote for Palin. I definitely do not have any reason to vote AGAINST her.

If that's how you want to think of it. I like the fact that I am in control of my own body-not the government. Especially on things that could change my life.

But, the government doesn't control who you sleep with or what birth control you use. Chat Icon

Yes, and the government doesn't control rape or instances of danger to the mother or the baby should a pregnancy continue either.

Re: If Palin were running for president

what's up with this prepetual abortion debate?

Frankly, while I am rather opinionated on choice vs right to life, I also realize that allowing the political parties to manipulate a wedge issue to gain votes when our country is in such a DIRE situation with the economy, debt, the war, foreign policy, homeland security, and rebuilding New Orleans (remember THAT!), is basically like allowing myself (a voter) to receive a frontal lobotomy.... That issue is soooo low on the totum pole.

Our country is struggling to tred water and not drown right now!

As for Palin.... I doubt many people were suprised by her less than stellar performance... becuase we all KNEW she had no foreign policy experience, and she DOES seem to depend upon soccer mom / home town charm to divert attention from her lack of substance.

as a professional woman who fought to work in a male dominated field, I'm prepetually offended by the GOP ticket's and pundits' defense of Palin. 'Everyone is picking on her', as if she's some defenseless child in a school yard. "He was hard on her during that interview'. STOP IT! She is running to become the potential leader of the free world. Not being sexist does not mean favoritism. It means you treat her exactly as you treat McCain, Obama, and Biden. that's IT.

Reporters are SUPPOSED to be hard on candidates. Everyone is SUPPOSED to examine their policy knowledge in depth and see how educated they are. All possible skeletons SHOULD be excavated from closets and examined carefully to determine the character of the individual.

If you can't stand the hot water, get out of the pot. Stop throwing around false accusations of sexist comments or behaviors. It brings down the rest of us women.....

I absolutely agree with you on both points! Chat Icon

I do wonder what people consider the most important issues in the race. I know everyone's different, but it would make an interesting poll.

As an English teacher and avid reader, I would NEVER vote for anyone who banned books, even though I know there are bigger issues.
