    right now it is the Republicans turn to have the scandals, it will go back to the Democrats when and if a Democrat gets in the White House as pres.

    I am an independent and I cannot stand either party. The 800lb gorilla in the room for both parties is that this countries infrastructure is slowly collapsing and yet none of the candidates really say anything about this, why? Why is Rudy still thumping his chest about what he did on 9/11 and saying look at me, if you don't elect me the terrorists will win.....Hillary and the Dems appear to be in high school still and have formed cliques and call each other who needs crap like this in office?

    The Dems took over the House and Senate and for W. its pretty much business as usual as he is getting what he wants, Nancy Pelosi to me is nothing more than a damn hypocrite when she said that things were going to change and what? She has pretty much bent herself willing over the table and allowed W. to have his way.

    A list just as long as this one was compiled by Shaun Hannity naming all of the lewd acts that DEMOCRATIC officials have been charged with withing the last few years =) You just don't hear about the Dems. because their misconduct gets glossed over.

    P.S. - btw I'm not a republican; I'm actually an independent...

    Here's a list of SOME of the democratic scandals...not even all, and it's twice as long as the list you provided....and this doesn't even include the ones that Hannity mentioned:

    Democrats are better at keeping theirs hidden. They are all corrupt(with the exception of MAYBE 1 or 2.) I say we elect Adam Sandler as president. He may not get anything done but man at the news clips.

    and bill still ran the country better than bush - even with all the scandal around him. he never lied and it was none of my business who he 'smoked cigars' with in the first place!

    it's all politics and unless people are given all information and true information they cannot vote their personal 'right' way. no one was given true and all information to give a true vote. and that would be thanks to bush.
