Jim: I'd be interested in your take on "negative campaigning." It's an issue that reappears every election cycle. While I cringe hearing unrealistic and inhuman accusations ("Candidate So&So doesn't care about families..") , I now demand that MY candidate/s answer accusations most vigorously, hopefully damaging their opponents by doing so quickly. It is a persuasive, winning, but repugnant tool. Is my judgement overwhelmed by a culture where "rovian" and "swiftboated" are part of our language? I want MY candidates to be better at slinging mud, even though I don't like the discussion to be on that level! I hope we have the best dirt EVER on the other guys. I'm really tired of my guys losing. Peace.

Take heart, Peg. I think there is a groundswell out there...more importantly the local, state and national independent polls show it.

My dad told me that if I voted for Goldwater, we would get in over our heads in Vietnam !
I voted for Goldwater, and remember what happened in Vietnam..

Maybe the mushrooms are clouding your judgement, peg. Negative ads have been around forever, employed by any candidate, for the sole purpose of winning the election

My late father was a wise man.
