Will 2004 be political 'year of the South'?

The year 2004 will be a year that demonstrates the continuing, and growing, political significance of Southern states. Whether it is the presidential contest, or the fight for congress, the South will be at center stage.

As far as Presidential politics goes, the South is irrelevant. The Democrats simply will not win the South and I say this as a liberal Democrat. Its only importance is in House and Senate races. The Dems do not need the South and shouldn't waste their time and money. We can win without the South just as the Republicans can win without New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.

If Gore had won NH or WV, Florida would have been a non issue (and we'd have a better President).

Good luck with your site. I never mind reading opposing viewpoints and hope you do well.

I'm not so sure a 'Robotic Tree' like Al Gore can make a decent President of the United States. Then again... You Democrats would vote for a Laboratory Monkey if it meant defeating a Republican.

Sometimes it feels that way. I think I have voted for a Lab Monkey in the past. In all seriousness, I hardly think Republicans are any better. In fact, polls show Dems more willing to cross party lines than Republicans. I suppose both sides are becoming to strident and pay too close attention to labels instead of candidates and ideas.

It's too bad. Lefties think I'm conservative and conservatives think I'm a leftie. The shouting on both sides makes me feel like walking away. I wonder how many "moderates" feel like washing their hands of the whole thing?

My name is Lab Monkey and I am running for the presidency of the United States of America.

Thank You
