Really? I never mastered the damn thing. Had to use it for school.. and just squeaked by, but it always really irritated me. lol
The PowerPoint vid is great. XD The sad part is, I've seen almost ALL of those problems in presentations students give. ^_^;
OBAMA '08 - YES WE CAN. :D
I know, right? lol. I'm guilty of one or two myself back when I had to make them. ;)
And yay! Huzzah. :) I was an Edwards girl all along, but when Edwards dropped out, Obama wooed me. I hope he chooses him as his running mate.
I voted Nader. I wish the Huckabee was still in the running...
I don't care for Clinton's positions on...well, almost anything. And Obama just doesn't have the background for me to want to support him. And, both of them are huge proponents of universal healthcare wyhich I am adamently against.
And McCain? Calling McCain a republican is like calling a rabid wolf a kitten. Put whatever name you want on it, it ain't going to chance a ball of yarn. He is about as liberal as a republican can be. So, as a conservative, where can my vote go but to Nader? Plus, I like alot of his platforms (except I am all about drilling in Alaska - minor)
And yes, I am aware that I am the only early-twenties female in the entire US who is not afflicted with obama-rama.
My ideal candidate? Would push for a flat tax, look at environmental issues realistically (Namely, allow drilling in Alaska and not be swayed by the inaccurate campaigns against it), reduce america's reliance on oil, and cut welfare back to its original intention (a temporary program, not a permenant lifestyle) and establish a reasonable, solid future for social security.
Sigh. This was depressing. I might as well write in teh Bruce Campbell/Chuck Norris ticket.
I'm changing my vote to Bruce Campbell/Chuck Norris.
I notice charts like that generally lack labels that read "temporary dot com boom" and "terrorist attack on NYC".
From the perspective of one outside the US (Australasia), it's hard to define what W's presidency means to me other than being pissed of at references to him as 'Leader Of the Free World.' I didn't vote for him - and if ALL the democracies under our Free Leader'd had the opportunity to do so there'd be no Iraq war...
With W's closest international supporters (Blair and Howard) gone and reduced political clout at home, he's less of a menace. Conversely, I don't imagine that Obama will be elected and the streets will flow with milk and honey. America will still have calls of electoral scandal, corruption and incompetence, no matter who wins. America will still be cursed abroad, by the pious, defiant or jealous.
The fact that America's political system works, for all its flaws, is a miracle and testament to the Founding Fathers.
I'm pleased, no matter the outcome, that it's got ordinary people considering politics and the role they can play in changing the nation (and the world!)
I agree completely. So many people in my country have been completely disenchanted with politics, and it's nice to see people taking an active role and researching the issues and coming to their own conclusions. Not just taking their parents stance, or going against their parents just to rebel. I finally have some hope for change in this nation, and I'm so excited. PLUS all three of the main candidates support stem cell research which I am 100% for. Someone in my family is losing his eyesight and because of the kind of situation it is with his eyesight, none of the other eye surgeries would do anything to help him regain it, and he'll probably be blind in the next 5 years. With stem cell research a whole bunch of doors open up for him and for others with health issues that aren't currently able to be taken care of because of this brick wall medical officials have hit.
i'm not voting for any of those people X(
i hate what america has become and that is all i will say in this comment as i am very tired and cranky. but it is good that i saw your post here, because it has reminded me that there are a lot larger things worth hating than myself or the fat that has accumulated on my posterior. bigger problems. you know?
yeah, it's coffee time. i hope someday i get to sleep at night. i *might* be going insane from this D:
man, power point sucks haha .. i can't believe people actually use it. i don't know, i've always been particularly bad at giving presentations. i would rather do the motivational-speaker style thing, and wave my arms around and talk like i am personally talking to every person in the audience. data presentation just doesn't suit me i guess. funny guy though. reminds me of middle-school powerpoint presentations, where we'd all 'ooh' and 'aah' over the slide transition effects and songs and things. haha woo! okay.. coffee time <_<
I'd like to see Obama win, simply because I've decided I've had enough of watching the boomers fuck up everything.
Well m first pick of candidates dropped out rather quick, so I'm down with Obama. I'ma new yorker, and Kilary has been promissing moe jobs for upstate residents, and trust me she hasn't come through
Yeah, I dont trust her at all. I'm really upset with some of the tactics she's using too. Was Edwards your man?
I see Ron Paul isnt an option. He hasnt dropped out, dont forget about him.
and that wasnt supposed to be hostile! oops! :)

Do not want any of them! I've not been too keen on any of the candidates from any party.
*Obama feels too smooth and cliched. Empty, but lifting speeches galore.
*Clinton? Meh. Smart woman, but I don't know if she's who we need for the transition from Bush's idiotic insanity. (Oooh. A surplus? Let's go nuts with guvment expansion. And, WAR! And, ANOTHER war! Woooooo! And, yes. Tax cuts!)
*McCain scares the hell out of me, especially with his anti-choice platform. (Let's bring even more repressive sh*t home! Because that's exactly what we women need. We don't know how to run our own lives. Right.) Oh, and supporting endless, pointless war.
*Nader is a douchebag. Makes no sense. He used to be a pleasant diversion. Now, he's just annoying whiner.

Just so I don't get jumped for the first war reference: I fully supported going into Afghanistan back in 2001. There was a point, a purpose in going in to the country. Iraq? Not so much, unless you count Bush and his cronies playing cowboys as a good reason. We never should have gone in there.
lol.. I wish I had a bros before hoes icon. ;) hehe. ;)

i withdraw my vote. i misread the question and thought it said "who is going to be the next president of the united states?" and the way things are going i clicked barack. but that's not who i would like to SEE be president.
Who would you like to see? :)
You're welcome! ;)
I realized I should have had Australia further up n my list! I didn't realize I had so many Aussies aboard. That's awesome. :)
I REALLY wish Ron Paul was president.
But Obama is a good speaker, so him. He'll make fantastic speeches during The Second Great Depression.
we couldn't vote 'none of the above?'
seriously... i voted for ron paul in the primaries. these guys are all cookie cutter war mongering socialist (fascist) assholes.
I figured if you didn't want to vote for one of the main four that you'd just leave that part blank. ;)
