I have better things to do than run around doing research for you.  Fortunately I've learned to choose my wording wisely.  You'll have to settle for that "nothing but" clause.

What?  Did you really think that I'd allow myself to get suckered into your nit-picking trap?

Well you did reply to wooz's post, and you did go so far as to highlight a specific part of that post!  Are you now claiming that what you did before was by accident or something?

As far as your innuendo-filled "government servants" commentary, are you claiming that everybody treats all government employees with equal enthusiasm?  "OMG, it's the dog catcher!!!  I gotta get an autograph!" {#Rolleyes}  I don't think that's realistic.

This is not a political statement, but a statement about human nature.

But what you wrote before was most certainly a political statement.  It clearly contains the word "politician".  Of course we're talking about human nature now, after I steered the conversation in that direction.

I still maintain that you're putting an undue amount of spin on the "servant" part of the oft-used term "civil servant".  Do you understand that public service is not the same as indentured servitude?

Have you ever had to work for someone else?  If so, do you believe that if someone made an offhand remark about your job that could possibly be misconstrued as being derogatory, that that comment itself is somehow license for your boss to mistreat you?  I'm asking you this because you seem to be implying rather heavily (albeit through weasel words) that Senator Biden does not deserve any respect or appreciation for his services and accomplishments, and should be seen as an inferior.  Frankly I find that assertion to be insulting.

I'm interesting in reading why you tend to reserve your negative commentary for Senators Biden and Obama, have nothing but great praise for McCain and Palin, and never hang around to justify those comments.  Speaking about human nature, I am...

It wasn't about him being a "rock star".  It's more about the commitment our family has made to volunteering to the campaign, giving up time to canvas neighborhoods, and in my kid's case last night, spending a Tuesday night at the local HQ manning the phones canvasing undecided voters.  The fact that Senator Biden took the time at 8:30 at night after a long day of campaigning to swing by this little office to encourage the staff was impressive.  He didn't stay long but really brought everyone's spirits up.  And she'll never forget having met him that night after he's VP.

Real class, IMHO.

 
This wasn't about Biden. It was about human nature. Not a knock on anyone. Just an observation and reaction I don't understand.

Funny how Biden is perceived as overenthusiastic and McCain is dramatic and unpredictable.

Here's the biggies: McCain's theatrics during the bailout... and choosing the campaign-boosting Palin instead of a qualified candidate. 

Joe Biden just misspeaks.

Interesting stuff.

Yeah, that was a classic Joe the GaffMaster comment.  He does get a bit overenthusiastic.  (I want to see the context, but haven't had time to look it up.)

Either president would get tested.  The real question is, which candidate do you think will best respond? 

As we've watched them through the campaign, Obama has been calm and thoughtful, studying issues, working toward consensus.  McCain has been dramatic and unpredictable, using scorched earth tactics to try to win. 

If you apply the same test to McCain/Palin... imagine something happening to McCain, and Palin being tested. 
 

Actually, he was referring to the state of the world - whoever wins will have to deal with the volatility of a 21st century world.  He's being realistic - no one out there is going to treat the American president with kid gloves.  Nor should they (or any world leader, for that matter).

I hope this doesn't come across as trolling, but I didn't see anyone comment on Biden's "International Incident within the first 6 months of Obabma's (foregone conclusion) Presidency". Just seems to me that this would come across as a reason NOT to vote foe him, and avoid this mysterious, 'guaranteed' tragedy.

My Two Cents.

Perhaps you might want to take a look at how you parse what other people write.  Did wooz say anything about the matter of primary importance being "seeing a politician"?  The way I read it, there was a person, Joe Biden, who was the object of primary importance.  Why, when the big deal is obviously about the person, and possibly also about the hope of what this person might bring, would you make such a sweeping generalization?

I don't speak for wooz, but I imagine that, if I had the opportunity to witness an historical event up close and in person, I might speak of that event with no small degree of enthusiasm.  That would have nothing at all to do with the classification of the person or persons involved, but rather the people themselves, and most probably about what the person(s) is/are doing at the time.
