I vote for my boy OBAMA!

-Yung Dro

AUDUBON, Iowa (CNN) — Earlier this week in New Hampshire Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama spoke candidly about his past experimentation with drugs and alcohol in high school, and on Saturday—after a question on medicinal marijuana—Obama was prodded a bit further and asked whether or not he had ever inhaled.

"I did," the senator from Illinois said to light applause. "It's not something I'm proud of. It was a mistake as a young man."

The question was a reference to a line made famous by former President Bill Clinton who, while admitting to trying marijuana, said he did not inhale.

"I never understood that line," Obama continued. "The point was to inhale. That was the point."

On the campaign trail on Saturday, GOP White House hopeful Mitt Romney said Obama's earlier comments set a bad example for young people.

"I agree with the sentiment that nobody's perfect and most of us, if not all of us, in our youthful years have engaged in various indiscretions we wouldn't want to have paraded in the front of a newspaper," the former Massachusetts governor said in New Hampshire. "On the other hand if we're running for president, I think it's important for us not to go into details about the weaknesses and our own failings as young people for the concern that we open kids thinking that it's ok for them."

On the issue of medicinal marijuana, Obama said that if the "best way to relieve pain and suffering is through medicinal marijuana," then it's something he's open to.

He added it would concern him much more if people were allowed to grow their own to use whenever they were simply "feeling really tense" and "needed a joint."

How about giving the voters the ability to write in a candidate's name, like maybe Lisa Cutten?

What about Noonan????????????????

All Kevin has to do is to put the word out to CNN (Cahill News Network made up of his family members in politics) and he will stuff the ballot box on this vote.

Jeremy, where on the computer screen should someone write the name of who they want to vote for? Also how will you be able to get an accurate count of all of these write in votes? Maybe I'm being paranoid but I get the feeling the winner of this contest may have already been decided.

Jeremy Blaber said...

you would write it in the comment area right here.... I will count them. I disagree that it's already been decided there is 10 days left to vote!

Yankee Jim for Person of the Year!

Does Diane Reeder volunteer or is this a paid position? She should get loads of credit (and votes) if she's donating her time, but if she's on the payroll, then Jon Sennett should win. Jon closed his practice and sacrificed his time and money and got screwed by his own party. Woerner, Cahill and Hein are well-compensated elected officials. Jeremy, next year your person of the year poll should be made up of volunteers who work to make their community a better place for no personal financial gain.
