How do I remove your vote for hillary..I don't think I have that option otherwise I could delete other people's vote so that it looks like everyone votes for my side!
Kennedy also gave you the Bay of Pigs, and dug you deeper into Vietnam.Kennedy's reputation was made by the fact that he died 3 years into his presidency, so nobody actually knows what he would have been like another 5 years down the line.Yes, I think there is a lot of similarity between Kennedy and Obama - most of it is down to showmanship.I am not suggesting that Obama is any worse than Clinton, only a little wary about someone who is clearly a great showman. Then again, I don't have to worry about voting for any of them (I just have to live with the consequences).
Charismatic people with principals change a nation, one life by one life.

The problem is that charisma is a tool, not a policy.
In that respect, G.W.Bush actually is a good team manager.
So what? The inspiration to rise above your personal limitations is what charisma is all about.
Have you never been inspired by someone to archive more than you could believe yourself capable of?
QuoteIn that respect, G.W.Bush actually is a good team manager. Again, you are know not of what you speak. G. W. Bush is a complete idiot that is being used as a figure head - I knew the Governor of Texas whom Bush replaced. I once had the pleasure of having lunch with her - I know her son, Clark. When I asked her - Ann Richards, who only served one term - what she thought about the up coming election and her chances against Bush (for Governor - he was running against her) she said her chances were not too good because of the organization that was backing him. It was a right-winged group headed by oil and gas companies, service companies and world-wide construction companies headquartered in Texas. They wanted some favors from the sate - they got them. Hallburton was at that time headed by it's CEO, Dick Chaney, now our vice-President. Bush was and still is a figurehead. He has little if anything to do with actual governing. It is Chaney and those others behind the scenes who actually run this country right now. That is why this election is so important. When asked by another person siting at the table that lunch-time, "well what do you think of Bush's intelligence (or something to that effect) she answered in her inimitable way "Well, the kindest thing I can say about him is that he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer." With that understatement, we knew she thought Bush was a complete idiot and I must gather from his performance and that of those who run him, that the inmates are in charge of the asylum. Ann Richards was the person who said the the Democratic National convention that "He (George Bush} can't help it - he was born with a silver foot in his mouth."
