  • I have not been able to keep up with the candidates around the country ... all that matters to me is whether the candidate announces their commitment to honoring the Constitution (which means not confiscating citizens' rights, as is being done with the Health Care Reform bill and the many spending packages, with the law-breaking bail-outs, being done by the EPA, etc.) ... honoring the Constitution and cutting taxes & cutting spending.

    If the candidate commits to doing these things, I don't care if she was a manager of a big wrestling enterprise, of eBay, or of the local bakery.

  • Well I think she is a wonderful lady. I am not republican as eveyone knows but I would vote for her for just about anything/ Probably not president but anything else I probably would. I remember watching WWF when it was the WWF still with my dad and I always liked her.

  • She is a highly intelligent business woman. She is a major reason the WWE is as successful as it is. Her business is legitamate whether it's liked by everyone or not. She's running against a man who lied about being in Viet Nam. I like her chances.

  • OOOOOS! Sorry---it was BLUMENTHAL, right? He apologized for leading people to believe he was in Vietnam. But he was in the Reserves.Didn't leave the USA. Kind of like so many politicians .....

  • Blumenthal is who I was referring to. He was in the reserves but claimed he saw combat. He did apologize however I'm not sure it will sit well with the true Viet Nam vets. We'll see because some voters have a short memory.
