How to elect a Democrat

(CNN) - Well, tonight we may learn what it takes to elect a Democrat as president: a hugely unpopular Republican president. An unpopular war. An economic meltdown. But that's not enough.

You still need a Democratic candidate for president who promises tax cuts to 95% of Americans, says he might keep Gen. Petraeus and Defense Secretary Gates, opens the door to oil drilling, and supports George Bush on the FISA bill.

    NC Mom: You and others throughout the world donated to Obama.. your donation was legal.. world donations not...

    For those that voted for Obama just because you thought he matched your relatively moderate view.. you were lied to.. For the most lib. Senator to get elected he had to move right. He will bounce back to the left like a rubber band no longer stretched.

    That $300 tax credit will not get you a job. How many jobs will be lost when the business owner having to pay an additional 710k in taxes starts to feel the pinch.

    As for myself (being a business owner), you can bet I will consider laying off an employee and force the remaining employees to be more productive.

    Just wait and see.

    Hey Alex don't forget to critisize McCain for the lousy campaign he ran, but i guess you are too partisan to admit your party's mistakes that were made.

    Yes We Did!!!!

    It's not close enough for a recount. Finally, the moment we – who have been waiting with bated breath – have been waiting for...

    McCain, go home and look for the real you, which got lost in the bitterness, anger, and whatever-it-take mentality.

    Palin, return to The Last Frontier – you owe the good people of your state an apologies and explanations.

    May God continue to watch over and bless our New President, and us as well.

    This is not the time to be bitter or divisive – this is the time to celebrate a historic moment. Yes we can, and yes we did.
