I agree...not a bad system...for Athens. I can just imagine that lottery running here, and some of the folks we might get making decisions. A bad set of 501 (isn't that about the size of Congress?..*grin*)could mess things up pretty badly before their 'review'.

Well, if you go back far enough, there is a precedent for that.

The Athenians (Athens, incidentally, was the longest existing democracy in history, not the United States) chose their public officials not by vote, but by lottery. Athenian citizens were well educated, and were expected, as the civic duty of a citizen, to take an interest in public affairs and know what was going on, so if they were selected in the lottery, they would be prepared to take over the duties of the office.

At the end of their term, their performance in office was reviewed and evaluated by jury of 501 citizens (deemed too large a jury to bribe), and they were honored or censured according to their performance. Someone who really messed up could be banished. So it behooved them to keep well informed, and if chosen, keep their noses clean.

Not a bad system. . . .

If the convention becomes a complete slobber-knocker with neither Obama or McHillary's folks willing to give, it is possible that after a few rounds of voting that party elders could step in, offer Gore as a "compromise" nominee allowing both the Obama and McHillary people some level of face saving...

In retrospect, you have to ask "What did they miss that they could have seen coming?". When I really screw up a hjudgement call, I like to review and ask why I did so I can change my operating basis somehow to prevent the castastrophe from recurring.

Well, well who'd a thunk such an innocent observation would provoke such an avalanche? I got to say, I ,along with millions of other Brits, indulge in a sport which is probaly incomprehensible to Americans, namely we like to wager on the outcome of political elections. You can only do this legally in Britain, of course, where bookmakers are legal. I have been doing this since 1964 when I was legally too young to bet, and may I say I have not made a losing wager in all the intervening years, and I have bet on all the American presidential elections as well as the British general elections.(I even got the last Labour victory right !).

So, people, I am not arguing the rights and wrongs, the wills and wonts, the whys and wherefores. I am telling you this : the American public is not going to elect George Bush as president, and I have put my money right beside my mouth.

I grew up during the depression, and if my father hadn't had a job on the WPA, we would have gone hungry. Did you know that before the New Deal, if a man was hurt on the job, he was fired?

As long as the electorial process in the USA is left in this asinine format, NO one will be able to 'look' like a decent candidate, and the few really palatable politicians out there will avoid the presidential spotlight. Anyone can be made to look like a fool by rhetoric and sleazy politics.

I do think Gore 'might' be a better president than he is a campaigner, but the only real answer is as Kendall says, to vote for general party principles....I, personally, have never cared for the general approach to life, love, money and attitudes that the Republican leaders avow...so....

Rabbitrunning, why such confidence that the Nazis would have been permanent. Even Hitler was aiming lower, with his 1,000-year Reich. And whatever the consequences of America getting into that war, it's worth remembering that what did it was not any act of Roosevelt or Congress, but Hitler declaring war on the US. (That must be just about the most deeply buried fact of modern times.)

The death penalty is a big issue with me too McGrath. I'm against it on moral grounds but accept that if most people are in favour, then in a democracy it's their choice. But if they're going to kill people, they surely have an obligation to be fair about it - and those states in the US that kill people are demonstrably not fair about it.

And unlike the US of A, but in line with the UN Declaration of Human Rights, I see no case for killing kids, no matter what they've done. I think among the nation states, the USA stands shoulder to shoulder with The Yemen on that one. And that won't change, whichever of these lightweights wins.

You find my argument flawed, Mousethief? I'm shocked!

I will remind you though, Alex, that the Democrats controlled the congress for forty years prior to the Republican takeover. I believe during most of those years the Democrats also held the White House. You will argue, I assume, that those were bad years too for the same reason. Es so?

I do agree with you on one point though. It takes considerable time for the economy to turnaround. The current upturn is the result of economic policies enacted during the Reagan/Bush administrations, and the appointment Alan Greenspan (which was done by Reagan).

And I think the congress has more to do with the economy, good or bad, than any president of either party.

DougR: I don't think the congress has a lot to do with prosperity at all, but I think nevertheless your argument is flawed. If in 1992 Clinton and the all-dem congress put into motion legislation (etc) that resulted in prosperity, do you think it would show up immediately? Not saying they did, mind you. But it stands to reason that things done by the congress session of 93-95 would not really show up in economic trends for some time, perhaps even not until after the election of 1994.

What really caused the election of 1994, of course, was the American public's realizing that they had foolishly given both the legislative and executive branches to the same political party. Not being able to vote out the president, they instead flopped the aisles in congress.

JMHO.

I"ve been a straight-ticket Republican voter for forty years. BUT!

No significant public officer is an individual. To say "I vote for (or against) the man" is bushwah. Any signficant public officer is a committee, a team, with large debts owing to other teams, with hopes of future support from certain sets of special interests. Whoever gets into the Oval Office is going to have to work with the team that put him there, and with the forces that put him there also put in Congress.

Despite what I said in the first paragraph, I expect to vote for Gore (and other Democrats) this time around. Why? Because I've been totally turned off by the actions of the Republican majority in Congress for the last eight years, and profoundly disturbed by the overwhelming influence the far right has achieved in the Republican party.

The "character issue" is almost a joke. Bush's activities in the seventies has been eclipsed by the media and as far as what Clinton did, JFK and Lyndon did more. Bush accusing anyone of being a liar is the pot calling the kettle black. His characer references are specious at best.

The problem with finger pointing is the old adage, point a finger at someone and two fingers point back at you.

McGrath, you are right. Bush is not your nice guy next door. There may be a note of cynicism here, because he may purposely employ gramatical errors to appeal to those who pride themselves on this kind of ignorance. He's a Yale guy, the son of a well-heeled former president from Amherst and not the real Texas cowboy that he claims to be. Whose lyin' now?

I think that Bush runs a negative campaign not in the way he attacks Gore but by virtue of not offering any concrete ideas as to how to govern. He would govern by absentia. He'll destroy the public school system by cutting off taxes to pay for it, pull our troops out of other countries that are not in his national interest, throw the surplus to the military (back to $200 toilet seats) and a costly anti-ballistic system, help his oil buddies by reducing their taxes, set civil rights and affirmative action back, sabotage Roe Vrs.Wade, ignore the demands of gay people, and probably encourage the states in the death penalty to execute innocent black young men.

The question you have to ask about Bush's plan for education is "Is our children learning?"

Gore bumbled through the so-called debate but at least has a cogent agenda. His expertise in foreign policy has been developed through experience in Washington.

I watched most of it. That's either masochism or voyeurism on my part. Or maybe I just like to be forewarned.

I know that all the politicians over there seem to be for the death penalty, and some decent people are as well, and there are arguments to be made for it and all that. So I'm not trying to start one here. But when Bush came to talk about the hate-crime case, he looked positively delighted at the prospect of the killers being killed. Not "this-is-something-terrible-which-we-have-to-do", but "hooray-we're-gonna-waste-the-bastards".

Maybe that's just him being honest. It's also sick and scary for a man who could be in a position to wipe us all out in a few months.

It suddenly occurred to me who it was he reminded me of, it's been niggling at me. Not so much the physical look, but the style. Remember Major Frank Burns in MASH ? His spiritual twin.

And I'm still gobsmacked at the way the papers all seem to talk about the man as being the kind of guy that Americans like! Can that really be true? To me it's a bit like being told that people think that Robin Cook is a handsome devil, or that Robert Mitchum is seen as having been a little effete.

I was amused that Bush, after his minions have been beating up on Gore for the past 2 weeks for misstatements, made a howler himself when he claimed that the men who dragged that old man to death behind their car were getting the death penalty. 2 of the 3 are; one is not. This is exactly the sort of half-truth that they have been blasting Gore for, and Dumbya goes and fumbles one himself. Hopefully this will shut the "Gore is such a liar" forces up, but of course it won't. As Lord Acton said, "a man who has bought a theory will fight a vigorous, rearguard action against the facts."
