    I would say that I want that as well, if not for the fact that I know no such person exists.

    But semi-seriously, if we only elected presidents who were more moral than I (and, believe me, that's not all that high a bar to clear) do you realize how many former presidents would have never taken the oath of office (including many who are ranked among the best ever)?



Of course. This is an ideal not a reality, I understand that. I am only saying that when we are in the process of choosing the person who will be the next president, I don't think qualities like "average" or "regular" should be seen as a positive thing.



I know you're a feminist and I think that's adorable, but this is grown-up time and I'm the man.

Count me in among those that want my President to be "better" than I. I think people sometimes confuse BEING an average joe with the ability to RELATE to or UNDERSTAND the average joe.

    Good golly! Whatever makes you think that? I don't even know you (for example) but I'd sure vote for you against any of the bunch that they're putting up THIS year.

    You'd want the study from Liberty University. Of course: the people who scream "liberal bias" will only be happy with "extreme conservative bias". Just like the McCain campaign recently complaining that The New York Times hasn't reported that Joe Biden's son does lobbying for credit card companies--of course, Joe Biden's son does NOT do lobbying for credit card companies, and never has, but I suppose letting that little detail stand in the way of reporting a story the Republicans would like is just another example of "liberal bias".

    Do you have any reason to think George Mason has a liberal bias? The LA Times was just reporting the results of the study, so I don't see how their position enters into it (not that I am saying they're biased; I don't read it enough to know, frankly).

Liberal bias is thrown around when the Republicans get caught with something. People forget that most radio networks are conservative by nature that is why Air America was new.

I am also get tired of the phrase "In the tank". I don't know if this is a trendy Fox News or Rush Limbaugh phrase, but its annoying the hell out of me. I am not sure what the tank is or who would want to be in the tank in the first place. All I know is that probably the best example of it is Fox News' coverage of the election.

(Let me preface by saying, I'm completely indifferent on the whole issue.) Well, if you allow the "slippery slope" thought on one side of the argument, then you have to allow it on the other side.
