Impossible. MMA generates too much $$ nowadays for that to be considered. Lets also not confuse ourselves with how much power the Pres. actually has. They're more figureheads than anything else. The real power lies with Congress and the Senate.

Zuffa can afford lobbyists now. The difference between Mccain's old opinion and his new one.

"forever rooting against" specifically only two black fighters? what's the deal man?
I dont have to explain myself to you, and not liking rampage or evans has nothing to do with the fact that they're black.Get over it

I was recently turned down for a high level management job because I didn't have a strong enough management background in the field. You can't blame me...the salary was almost twice what I make right now, so I had to take a shot at it. I don't disagree with the decision THAT much, but it got me thinking about Obama.

We want this guy to be President, but how can we be guaranteed that he's not going to be as bad as Bush? All the news are talking about these days are Obama's background, and the more that unfolds the more I'm beginning to realize that he hasn't even so much as run a gas station or small business. He doesn't have any experience managing finances, personnel/human resources or government/emergency services.

I understand he's an "outsider" and all, but really...will he be able to keep us floating the next 4-8 years?
Here is a good link to information attesting to Obama's experience.
http://www.obamapedia.org/page/Does+...dent%3F?t=anon


Also, Suppose your argument that he has too little experience does in fact hold water, does Sarah Palin?

You may ask why this matters, and I would say that it definitely matters because McCain would be, if elected, the oldest incoming president. Also, his fathered died of heart disease at a younger age than McCain is now, and McCain has shown on numerous instances that it is not unthinkable that he is suffering from the beginning of a mental disease such as Alzheimers. If he either dies or is shown to be mentally incapable of running the country, that responsibility falls to Sarah "Bridge to Nowhere" Palin.

Doesn't that seem like a better question?

On a side note, Obama's work running community service organizations, and his stints in both the state and U.S. Senate, are sufficient in my eyes to be able to lead the country. He's shown leadership skills, tenacity, courage, and above all, intelligence; something that has definitely been missing from the white house for the past 8 years.

Why would he do that? as he said, the sport has been cleaned up. It would have never made it this big in the states if Dana and his gang didn't step in and put some guidelines around it.

I hear he loves all things non-violent. Hugs and long walks people - this is the answer.
