Great article, just wish he wasn't so stiff and awkward in 2004. He would have been a great prez, probably wouldn't have stayed as fit, though.

Probably done a lot of cycling in the past 4 years, to burn off the frustration... ;)

And the dude can descend like a lunatic, so at he very least, I know he’s got balls.
No, WAIT, he's a latte sipping, wind-surfing, elitist wimp who made up all of that heroic ***** he did in Viet Nam. He can't have balls! This is very very very confusing. I have to go have a latte and let this sink in a bit.

Correct!

I am not sure descending skills translate into balls or not. Its more about the bike. I descend with confidence on some bikes, but not others.

Kerry is probably a great guy to hang out with and maybe even ride with (like most people actually), but did not have the right stuff to lead then or now.

Yes.


I am not sure how an average Senator; who ran a lousy National candidacy would be a "great" President, but I hear all sorts of things these days that surprise.

Here's what I thought at the time:

I am not sure Sen. Kerry fully vetted Sen. Edwards before picking him to be a V.P./running mate. Sen. Edwards was SO inexperienced: a one time US Senator with no foreign policy experience and no executive experience. Sen. Edwards didn't come from a big town. And he was SO young in 2004! You need more than good looks to be a VP. For him to be one heartbeat from the Presidency was scary. How much time did Sen. Kerry spend with Sen. Edwards before picking him to be the V.P./running mate?

How his sick wife and 2 young kids would have adapted to the National spotlight is something I hope Sen. Edwards (and Sen. Kerry) thought thru. I think his wife should have spent more time with her kids. :rolleyes:

September and October are probably the best months of the year for riding in much of the U.S. Go out and ride, and come back and tell us how wonderful it was. Ask about tires and saddles. Tell scary stories about dogs and motorists and potholes. Make fun of slower riders. Make fun of faster riders. Share your favorite post-ride beverage. Make fun of me for eating Cheetos after long rides. Pretend to care about the Vuelta. Brag about how low your bars are. Tell me my favorite band sucks. Anything but this!

So what did Dan Quayle bring to GHB?

Kerry, had more experience (national and international, including military), and more capability than GW, so all arguments are lost on this subject. Kerry would of been atleast an average president, much higher standards than present administration.

I liked Edwards at the time, but have lost a lot of respect for him. At the time, what he lacked in experience, he more than made up in capability!!!

man, I can't believe you brought up family values. Paulin touts herself as a "social conservative", which I think is ridiculous in of itself (like a political party determines, or represents the authenticity of spiritual conviction, or whether you love your family, etc).......but has an autistic child, and daughter that's pregnant.....how much time do you really think she spends with them??? What would happen if she became prez by default???

I was an anti-Dead Head. Dunno why, I was too busy wearing sweater vests in the 80's. The Dead weren't 80's to my U2, Howard Jones, Cult, Cure, Duran Duran, INXS, PiL, Depeche Mode ears. I am glad to say I caught The Dead three times, they were really on for one of the shows, the other two, not so much. Politics can be very lame indeed. I still have many of my sweater vests.

ok quick look at myspace, I have 173 friends, comming out to 5 pages of friends with 40 friends on each page. There is an average of 2 bands per page (most of which include my friends) but the rest are people I'd consider 1rst tier or second tier friends, their signifigant others or people who serve me coffee, food or work at other bikeshops or . Looking thru there is not a single person I could not enjoy a conversation with for at least 30 minutes, most I see on a regular basis (those I don't are in other cities). I'd consider them friends. But perhaps I'm just a friendly person?

The beauty part with the Dead was how bad they could be and how freakin' amazingly great they could be the next night. They took chances, they let themselves try stuff and fail. But when it worked, good lord did it work. I saw a lot of bands that were very very very very good and even great night after night after night. But it wasn't interesting or different enough to keep going back. With the Dead, you just never knew, which kept it fun. But the '80s was not their best decade by a long shot, so I'm not surprised they didn't do much for you.

"He would have been a great prez, probably wouldn't have stayed as fit, though."Are you talking about Kip Winger, Ronnie James Dio, or Ozzy Osbourne? Maybe Joe Elliot?
Most of them still have a great set of pipes and can belt out the old tunes!

The guys from The Cult definitely knew how to rock the 1980's:

I had an autographed picture of Bob Weir wearing a pink jersey, riding a Spectrum Ti.

Gary Fisher had a Grateful Dead special edition Hoo Koo E Koo.

Did Dee Schneider ride :confused:

Correct!

I am not sure descending skills translate into balls or not. Its more about the bike. I descend with confidence on some bikes, but not others.

Kerry is probably a great guy to hang out with and maybe even ride with (like most people actually), but did not have the right stuff to lead then or now.Descending in the Tampa area isn't the same as descending in the Boulder area. On a competent bike it is all about the rider.
