Apparently he's the next candidate and he wants mass transit, sounds good to me. I just need to know his stances on everything else.

You might have trouble with me since I lean toward Republican although I'm a registered independent.

Well then I'm sorry for the poor choice you have made by leaning towards the Republican party. I won't hold it against you since your a younging and soon enough your learn right from wrong.

But I've already learned that most politicians are worthless and corrupt and I'm basically picking the less of the evils.

I hope you aren't old enough to vote.

Sorry to break the news but Richardson has a snowballs chance in hell at getting the Democratic nomination. The guy has no momentum, tepid grassroots support, and the media is happy with ignoring him. All that combined pretty much has tombstoned his chances. I wouldn't write him off as a VP pick but Pres candidate? No chance in hell.

Those still in the running on the democratic side. Clinton (name recognition), Obama (media love), Biden (momentum), and Edwards (grassroots) are still in the hunt. There is even a better chance of an unknown stepping in as well.

As for the republican side... Dumb and Dumber. Each with a good chance of getting the nom.

If he's a "registered" Indie, then he would prolly have to be.

The Republican thing didn't surprise me, many Cubans are cos they're anti-Castro/Communist. Also, if you're from an immigrant family and America went to war with the country of your heritage in the past, then you'd likely side with the opposite party of whoever was president when America went to war with that country...

So let get this straight, if your pro Che Guevera and Cuban you would most likely vote Republican. Interesting enough!

Who is is pro Che?

Yes, my entire family is very much Republican. I didn't go so far as to register Republican, but I am very conservative. I've been to Cuba, I've seen the liberal dream, and it doesn't work.

Of course I'm not saying that Democrats are Communists, but I strongly disagree with most of what they say (especially Michael Moore. I can't believe that he actually thinks that Cuba's health care system is better just because it's free. They can't do the things that we can do here.)

You know what, **** Michael Moore. I already hated all of his movies, this new one just pushes it over the edge.

I never said that I was Republican. In terms of gay marriage, I'm fine with them getting civil unions and equal treatment by the state, but I wouldn't call it marriage. Leave that term to the church.

Richardson would be an ideal candidate for president, especially in a "new" era which will require enormous amounts of diplomacy to clean up some of the mess we've created. The North Koreans have been to Santa Fe, NM twice in the last year and a half to speak to Richardson rather than Bush. But as someone stated above, I seriously doubt he has the momentum to catch either Obama or Clinton for the democratic nod. He has done some amazing things for my home state of New Mexico, including bringing 60 or 70 movie productions to the state within the last couple of years. Our economy is booming and much of that is due to Richardson.

So that means when a "straight" couple gets 'married' outside of the church i.e. the judge, they can't call it marriage either it would be a civil union.
