  1. It would be nice if the issue importance factor would pick up some momentum itself. Each game, I set my candidates to the same 3 or 4 issues and leadership...since all the others are of little or no importance for the entire game. Gets a little boring.
  2. I see your point. On the other hand, I've read recently that Northern Ireland and Scotland both seem to be in good places now to make the move to independence. If that were to happen, I doubt the Welsh would sit idly as a spectators. A single 'England' might not be too far off......so I read. What do you think?
  3. I just came across an error message I've never seen before. It says "error in Research::findBreakthroughBeingResearched". I'm playing standard 2008 as Badnarik (my vote-getter) and Peroutka (my attack dog). In ending Peroutka's turn, I got this message. He is researching a scandal...but now my game is frozen. So sad. :-(
  4. I agree...I like the idea of higher "established" limits. It makes for greater game dynamics. Obama in particular does not need a 1 rating. Even if he sits back and does nothing, the media frenzy would keep his campaign alive.
  5. Ya...I think that it doesn't need to be made easier...at least not for every candidate. I mean, can you imagine Clinton and Gingrich pairing up on a single ticket??? In fact...I find that when I do cross the fence and offer my VP spot to the opposite party...playing the rest of the game is a moot point. I win with, at the very least, a 20% victory margin and about 400 electoral votes.
  6. I like the idea of giving the 3rd party candidates a challenger in their primaries. Afterall, wasn't the 2004 Libertarian party a close race? But I do think that (after there is a challenger) if a 3rd party candidate can build up their profile to a national level, they should be allowed to keep it...that's the way it would work in real life...and is exactly what a 3rd party candidate needs to be able to do (more effectively despite the huge odds against it) in order to take a piece of the electoral pie.
  7. One more like that...Ted Strickland in Ohio.
  8. I also thought Delaware should not be a such a common swing state in the game...especially since it is so small and hard to click exactly on it with your mouse! Game play enjoyment goes when you don't have to deal with Delaware. Hahaha!
  9. I must be out of the loop...but what about our perennial favorites? Are they in or out this election cycle? Nader, Keyes, Cobb, Buchanan, Perot..... (not that I mind too much either way!)
  10. That seems to be a theme to conservative politicking these days, isn't it? With nearly 2/3 of the US population in opposition to the way Bush is handling things...why don't you just say most Americans are anti-American...except for that elitist group of Bushies?
  11. Did anyone notice that in the governor endorsements, Elliot Spitzer (D-NY) starts out with giving Republicans a 25 point lead...despite his center-left stance. Is this an oversight in updating the Pataki-Spitzer change?
