What a long strange trip

by Rasputin

The ethnic makeup of the candidates in this year’s election is beginning to look like James Watt’s ideal staff – a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple. Someone should convince Joe Lieberman to run as there has already been a cripple as President – Franklin D. Roosevelt. Even though no one would admit it.

Is America ready for this level of diversity? I would like to think so. A recent survey by Harris Interactive showed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as the top two choices of all Americans surveyed. (Republican and Democrat) The top Republican candidate in this bipartisan survey was Colin Powell.

Democrats have traditionally been more accepting of diversity but Colin Powell as the leading Republican is not that surprising. Finally America is becoming less concerned with the color of your skin and more concerned with the quality of your ideas.

Romney Enters Race

Submitted by Michael Hall

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has officially entered the presidential race seeking the 2008 Republican nomination. The announcement was made at 9am this morning at the Henry Ford Museum at Dearborn, in his native state of Michigan.

During his speech at the historically famous site, Romney said: “Innovation and transformation have been at the heart of America’s success. If there ever was a time when innovation and transformation were needed in government, it is now.”

He will now begin a four day, six state campaign tour.

The former governor has entered a race that is already highly competitive. Polls show that the early favorites for the republican nomination are Sen. John McCain, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Romney, however, may face opposition from the large number of Christian-based republican supporters. The former governor is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, or more commonly known as the Mormons. The religious groups is viewed by many within the Christian community as non-Christian.
