Case in poiint, I don't like Dick and I don't like Jenny. As much as I think Dick is going to pad his pockets and his friends while in office, I fear what Jenny will do to us more. I think Dick can and will do alot for Michigan even if he pads his piggy bank at the same time.
That ends up being the way politics are at the moment. With the agression within the parties these days, any candidate who gets into middle is eaten by their own party for being two close to the opposition.
But, the average american generally would prefer someone more moderate/middle ground. Its that backlash thats going to make things interesting this fall. Lot of angry voters.
