I don't know about anyone else, but when I vote for a candidate, I'm not voting for the DNC charter. Nice straw man, though.
I don't believe you're quite aware of what a straw man actually is. Nevertheless, the absolute best indicator of how a candidate will perform, which way he will vote on issues, is his party affiliation. They are democrats and republicans for a reason. If you are going to actually make an attempt at arguing that republicans dictate to their constituents what to believe while democrats don't, provide some evidence, and not just a link to google. Both parties have guidelines and platforms from which their candidates almost never differ.
Wow, kudos on using ancient examples, gramps. I mean, it's not like new voters entered the party since 1970
...so where is an example of what you said? That if the democratic party goes astray you democrats reign it in and make it better? Is it the one democratic president we've had since video games became a viable form of entertainment?
BTW, Al Gore won the popular vote
And yet the popular vote is not how the presidency is won in the United States. He lost the election even though he was a vice president in a very popular presidency. He lost his home state. You cannot say he was a strong candidate.
and despite the vote rigging, Kerry STILL almost won.
Horseshoes and hand grenades. He lost to an unpopular president and ran a mess of a campaign. Not a strong candidate.
BTW, GWB didn't win Connecticut, so HE didnt carry his home state, either.
Again, what color is the sky in this world of yours. You do realize he was the governor of Texas do you not?
Contrast that with Daddy Bush or Daddy Reagan
Because republicans sure as hell supported Bush in everything right? That's why he's getting such great numbers, right?
