Heating up 

Thanks in part to his unforgettable "I have a scream" post-Iowa caucus rant, Howard Dean has taken some hits. And as the Democratic primaries heat up, it's looking like a genuine horse race for a presidential election that many are already taking very, very seriously.

    How closely do you follow the Democratic primary cycle? Day by day.

    Why would we want any of these candidates to beat Bush? The principles Bush stands for and the reasons he entered into the Iraqi war way heavily on my heart.

    Name something positive Bush has done. He's given us a forum to rally around. He's made people recognize that they are willing to live for -- and some of us even to die for -- the beliefs we hold.

    Is it possible to cut the deficit, increase spending and make the tax cuts permanent? The only way we're going to cut the deficit is by bringing the jobs back home that we've sent out of the country.

I don't agree with what he did in the war and I don't support tax money going to faith-based charities. He panders too much to the right wing. -  - Name something positive Bush has done. He listens to his staff and seems to rise up to what needs to happen in particular situations.

    Who would you vote for if the election were tomorrow? I saw Kerry interviewed on a PBS documentary talking about serving in Vietnam. I'd probably vote for him.

    Why would anyone want Bush defeated? I don't agree with what he did in the war and I don't support tax money going to faith-based charities. He panders too much to the right wing.

    Name something positive Bush has done. He listens to his staff and seems to rise up to what needs to happen in particular situations.

He's not swayed by the ebb and flow of public opinion. He's not always right, but he does what he thinks is right. -  - Name something positive Bush has done. He's pursued a proactive and security-based foreign policy that has a long-range vision. -  - Is it possible to cut the deficit, increase spending and make the tax cuts permanent? That depends on the growth of the economy and if tax revenues increase commensurately. It's possible. It's not likely.
