If he can do anything to get PIT into the SB, then I finally have a reason to vote for one of the candidates :lol:

No, he can't.

So don't.

Please.


Edit: sorry to be an old fuddy duddy, but the stakes are higher than ever, and I can't bear to take the implications lightly.

I'm folding either one of these hands. Gotta have a sense of humor about it - we're going to need it.

When I drove Vilsack to Concord in May '07, he was out of the race and was one of Hillary's national co-chairs. I remember him telling me then that the country, in his estimatio, simply wasn't ready for a guy by the name of Barack Obama to be elected president....that it was hardly ready for a woman to occupy that office.

Again, really good guy, really easy to talk to.

Oh, and his keynote speech was great!! All of our youth were there. He talked about being born into an orphanage, the pain of having an alcoholic adoptive mother, battling to succeed, etc......very inspiring for the kids.

I'm confused, what was the "battling to succeed" part of the speech referring to?

He better check with his potential running mates history and his party's overall platform before continuing to spew such nonsense......

Dude, the general board is proof enough that if there's any kind of political taboo here it's not being enforced. At all.

I'm talking about his speech to a group of at-risk kids, SuperK, wherein he referenced his growing up with an alcoholic parent....something alot of those kids are forced to confront.

I understand the circumstances but am still (possibly more) confused. No matter who the audience is your message should be fundamentally consistent. Pandering if not pure hypocrisy.

What constitutes an at risk child these days? Are there kids without risk? I used to like going to friends houses with boozy parents, they cracked me up. Hard to believe she could have been that bad going thru the trouble to adopt in 1951?!?

On a more serious note, it needs to be emphasized that he is in no way, shape, or form a "regular Pittsburgh guy". These career politicians and career politicians for a reason.
