Why are so many Republicans running against one democrat? Why don't they unite and give the people one candidate to choose from? I don't know a lot about how this works, need some answers here..Thanks

    Wrong question... Why is Hillary considering running against Obama in 2012?
    Is the genuine party of HATE comming apart at the seams?


    And how about that Alvin Greene from S.C.? The NYTs accuse him of being a plant by the GOP... but once again, they have NO evidence whatsoever! They just toss out the accusation... and hope it sticks!

    The modern day Democrat is DONE, TOAST, FINISHED!

    people need to get out of the party mind set to save this nation. a vote for people with the right back ground. Think why would some one give up a job that pay more then a elected office, unless they were going to recap that money

    Choose your candidates well, investigate their background.

    We are approximately two years away from the next presidential election. The "Parties" choose their candidate to run over a series primary elections in each state. In reality, these people are running against each other for the position of that candidacy.

    Many of the others are using an anti-Obama campaign as their talking point for other sub-positions that are being elected this November. It's kind of like the joke in a sporting context; "My two favorite teams are the Mets and whoever is playing the Yankees!"

    The more choices the better. It gets people thinking, I hope.

    Incumbents often run unopposed from their own party. The candidates are culled during the primaries so there will be one democrat, on republican and anyone from other parties in the general election.

    In primaries, there are always several candidates vying for the chance to run against someone from the other party or parties. You should find it odd that only one is running in primaries for a side - means very narrow views and/or no dissent is allowed.

    That's why there is something called primary elections. It allows the parties to narrow the candidate to one for each race.

    It will certainly make it interesting. I think they all should run.
