I've been wandering lately who are the most popular politicians and why they are the most popular. For instance do Republicans favor the moderate voices from their party or do they lean more towards the ideologues? Or, do democrats lean towards who ever hates Bush the most, or who most embodies all of their beliefs?
So, if anyone could post a few politicians they admire and why, and their political affiliation I will try to write an article as to what republicans and democrats and people in g...

Everyone hears the question at some point in their life. Which came first the Chicken or the Egg? Well I heard a smart-alleck answer today I liked. Didn't they both come at the same time?

Perhaps nothing about President Bush's re-election unhinged Democrats more than the roughly 20% of voters who cited "moral values" as their top concern.

Never mind the tizzy of soul searching it has provoked among party officials. (Why do churchgoers hate us? Is Howard Dean too godless to head the Democratic National Committee?)

You can't even have a beer with a rank-and-file liberal these days without the conversation degenerating into paranoid fantasies about how evangelical leaders ar...

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Gutierrez, 51, will replace Donald Eva...

In any debate it seems the only two views represented are those of the left and the right but what about those who arenot left or right?(No I'm not just talking moderates) Statistics say Independents are bluer but is that really true? Also only one independent in the senate are they under represented? Or do they just lack an organized front. Why didn't they vote for Nader? Did he alianate his own base? What are your opinions?

During a seventh straight day of protests in Kiev's Independence Square, opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko defied current President Leonid Kuchma's call for the protests to end, and urged his supporters to maintain "peaceful protests ... here until the end."

In eastern Ukraine, where his support is strongest, Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych also preached the value of peaceful protest. "I call on you not to take any radical steps," he said. "I repeat -- none. As soon as the first drop of bl...

Here is a Democrats view as to what DEMOCRATS should do….
Homeland security: Heal our relationships with foreign countries to stop terrorists from reaching U.S. soil.

Push the intelligence reform bill through legislature and unify our intelligence operations.

After their overwhelming defeat this past election their has been much talk of whats next for the party. New leaders in the senate and DNC are needed, so for the senate the democrats naturally chose somenone from their party considered concervative. Wait a minute is that really the face of the Party? As for the new DNC chairman its rummored to be either Howard Dean or John Edwards. Wait a minute didn't both of these people loose the parties presidential ticket? As is seen the article Democrati...

5 members of the CIA's high priority clandestine service have resigned so far this month. Was it just time to go or is their more to the story?
Democrats challenge that President Bush's choice for the new leader of the CIA was the wrong man. However if this is so why did they vote hime in? Also the Intelligence reform bill why is it stuck? Republicans, Democrats or both?

How did Democrats go so wrong in the past elections. Of course tails are flying from either side of the political aisle but what really went wrong? Were we out of touch like republicans say? Did we neglect our base as the news organizations say? In my opinion we had all the wrong people running. Look at John Kerry, the polls are in his favor he sits back, the polls aren't in his favor we see more of Edwards.

Of course not every office had the wrong candidate. Look at Colorado, Reblica...
