    Well, just to satisfy your curiosity then...

    I think our country needs better work ethic, more personal responsibility for actions, more awareness of what's right in front of our faces like neighbors in need, less power and money in DC and more back in local communities, less feelings of entitlement, huge cut in payroll taxes, less economic dependency on world markets, more freedom in agriculture, medicine, and transportation, less taxes and regulation on small businesses, and more respect for life and faith, just to name a few things.

    I give slightly less than a crap how the rest of the world views us. This country didn't get built in the first place by worrying about what some cheese-eating surrender monkey was thinking about us. I hate that we've become so dependent on other countries' economies and civil wars. If I were president, I'd likely not leave the country, except maybe for a recreational trip like to see Wimbledon or something. There's plenty of work to do here in our own country.

    That is such a typical, "America Fuck Yeah!" response. I'll tell you what, you'll be worried when China decide to get off their INTP asses and start fucking with us. American has only been a Super Power for less than 100 years. Your views are narrow minded and exactly the reason we need an intelligent President who can get us out of the mess we're in and lead us and more importantly, our children, grandchildren and so on, into the future.

    Simmer down people.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    There's unfortunate truth in this. I have a ultra-right wing, Christian fundamentalist relative who can't get enough Oprah, hangs on everyword and reads every book in her booklist.

    Start? They already have undermined us without a single volley fired. The American consumer was only too happy to eagerly oblige.

    I think our country needs better work ethic, more personal responsibility for actions, more awareness of what's right in front of our faces like neighbors in need, less power and money in DC and more back in local communities, less feelings of entitlement, huge cut in payroll taxes, less economic dependency on world markets, more freedom in agriculture, medicine, and transportation, less taxes and regulation on small businesses, and more respect for life and faith, just to name a few things.
    Offshoring is sucking the life out of our job market. All that other stuff is meaningless if people cannot count on finding good paying jobs for their hard earned skills. They are breaking the social contract by selling workers out, people's morals degrade from there.

    The American consumer did it to themselves. The irony is overwhelming. No one cares until it happens to their industry. Our own selfishness and greed has been turned against us.

    Well I extrapolate that Clinton on the Obama ticket would only unify two groups together that McCain would be unable to beat.

    However, my initial impression is that Obama strategists are against that idea despite the fact that the majority of American democrats think they would be the Dream Ticket for that reason.

    Agreed. Oprah can single handedly change the way Americans think. That's a pretty powerful tool to be able to utilize when most Americans trust Oprah than any other source.
