President Gordon B Hinckley dies at 97.

President Gordon B Hinckley has died. The prophet is dead.

It's hard to believe, President Hinckley was such an amazing leader, it's so hard to believe he's dead.

I've been extremely touched by his wisdom, and delicate humor. His inspiring words and faith has been the epitomy of strength.

I'm honored to have known of him, having never met him in person. I recall attending a general conference once, though where I was a stone's throw.

Being 28, and a convert at age 14, he was pretty much the only prophet I've ever known, it is shocking that he died.

President Hinckley will be missed, but its definitely pleasant that he is now able to go home to his beloved Marjorie.

I think, that means that President Monson, will be the next President.

If you're reading this - how did you feel when you first heard this news?

Edwards Finishes 3rd, but he's far from Over.

Edwards managed to finish third in New Hampshire. Which is saddening since I think he is one of the candidates with the most character and integrity, (besides Dennis Kucinich, lol)..

But don't let that upset you, Edwards is in this till the end, he is determined to be President, I believe he will get that wish, if not this time around, then definitely in 2012, or 2016. I'm sure we haven't seen the end of him.

I'd love to see an Obama / Edwards vie for the whitehouse, personally. Perhaps Edwards should bow out, in order to give Obama the edge and keep Hillary from the oval office.

Mike Gravel, aka Kucinich 2.0 to keep Running!

It seems that former Senator Mike Gravel, from Alaska,
who shares many of the same opinions as Ohio Rep Dennis Kucinich
will remain in the running for President.

However today, he spent most of the day with Doctors, instead
of his supporters, as he is having a bad upper respiratory infection..

My random thought:
I hate upper Respiratory stuff its always nasty, I get those all the time, hell I had
upper respiratory infection, and Bronchitis at my wedding,
then we went to mesquite, NV to the Casino's and bam - nothing
but cigarette smoke in the air..

The end of my random thought :).

I hope Mike Gravel, has a speedily recovery, and is able to continue his run. He seems like a nice enough guy, although I'm still a Kucitizen.

Regretfully Announcing the Winners of the NH Primary 2008

The results are in, some precincts are still reporting, but by all accounts, somehow the wicked witch from Arkansas has managed to take over New Hampshire, or at least gain their vote, why or how, I can't begin to understand...(she is from Arkansas, right? or is she from New York..maybe I should research..she's the NY senator, but Bill was Arkansas' governor...oh well who knows or cares?)....

On the republican side, it looks like Mccain has taken the lead, it's going to be one of those races that, you just don't know what's going to happen next. I must say, I'd like to see Huckabee win the Republican ticket, just because it would show that it doesn't matter how much money you have to throw at it. That maybe we should take money out of politicking altogether.

I actually just can't like Romney at all, he just seems stuck up and full of himself. I don't care if he is Mormon, and shares the same faith. I'd vote for just about anyone but him or Hillary. Of course Ron Paul as Republican leader would be a nice change.

Barack Obama announced that he is "still fired up and ready to go" after finishing second to Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Primary. The results at one point were too close to call with Hillary only leading by a small margin, which at least shows that he has the support, Hillary just manged to garner a little more of the vote, which was expected of the people in New Hampshire.

It's believed if you win Iowa and New Hampshire, then you'll win the nation, it is now definitely anybody's ball game. I'm excited to see what comes about, in a way I think this is more exciting than a good hockey or basketball game. Honestly, I am a little anxious, as I don't think we want Clinton as a president, I don't think she has what it takes, to be honest, and her campaign seems to be faltering slightly.

More from Obama:

"You know, a few weeks ago no one imagined that we'd have accomplished what we did here tonight in New Hampshire," he told supporters. "For most of this campaign, we were far behind. We always knew our climb would be steep.

"But, in record numbers, you came out and you spoke up for change. And with your voices and your votes you made it clear that at this moment in this election there is something happening in America."

He then congratulated Senator Clinton, and asked the crowd to give her a round of Applause.

"All the candidates in this race have good ideas and all are patriots who serve this country honorably," Obama said.

I wish the dagnabbit Media would Stop Blackballing Kucinich, he deserves to be heard.

Hey, Check out this video, I just received, by a Kucinich support organization. Also watch the youtube video below as it is pretty scary how the media can blackball a presidential candidate. What's next... Appealing freedom of speech altogether?

Let's hope not!

As you may or may not know, besides Kucinich, I am a big fan of John Edwards, I like how he's not owned by corporations, and doesn't take corrupt money for his campaign, like obama and clinton.

Here's a letter I wrote, hoping that he might at least speak up at the outrage of ABC... By the way, you can bet your bottom dollar, that I will be boycotting any item advertised on ABC, and will be boycotting Disney...

My Dear John Letter...hehe...

John, I'm a big fan of yours, I must say I most strongly fit with Kucinich, but by far, you are my candidate of choice beyond Kucinich, most likely you will receive my vote, because I do think you may be more likely to win, but I still think Kucinich's voice should be allowed to be heard. I think Ron Paul's voice should've been able to be heard at the Fox debate as well.

Personally, I'd be extremely happy if Dennis Kucinich were your running mate.

The reason I'm writing is to express my concern that Dennis wasn't even allowed in the debate.

I think, that you or someone with integrity should at least speak up and say that it isn't right, if anything it may even add to your image, and garner you some support from the Kucinich camp.

I think when abc, disney, or fox can pick and choose which Presidential candidates to allow or ban from debates, we are entering a shifty era. Two stones throw from the propaganda control of Nazi Germany.

As I said I am a big fan of Kucinich, I do doubt he has enough to win, but I think his views should be heard.

I actually plan on voting for you, because I prefer you much more than the other two candidates, but ANYONE is better than Hillary in my own personal Opinion.

I thank you for your attention to this email.

Best Wishes,
