Click here to go behind the scenes with Jack Cafferty.How much does it matter to you if a politician says he doesn't believe in God?
Jack, What I care about is whether or not they believe in the Constitution of the United States. Their religious beliefs are their business, not mine.Bea, Clifton Forge, Virginia
If you don't believe in God or "some higher power," what do you believe in? Where do your moral values come from? This country was founded on a deep belief in God. Our greatness, our knowledge of right or wrong come from that belief. The further we move away from our foundation the closer we come to the things that have destroyed all great nations throughout history.William, Bronx, New York
Who gives a rat's behind if he does or does not believe in a higher power? I don't care as long as he is a halfway honest man and does not lead my kids into a trumped up war that bogs us down like Vietnam or worse. Pres. Bush believes in God and look what a right mess he has created.T., Texas
Honestly, I don't think it should matter what a politician should believe in. As long as he has good moral standards then I would vote for him.Megan, Alfred, New YorkHave checks and balances made a comeback in Washington?
Thankfully, yes. A long, long overdue comeback. The Constitution is what makes America great. It's about time these elected and appointed officials start doing their jobs and defend the Constitution. I believe they took an oath to that effect.Todd, Oxford, Michigan
Checks and balances are not restored with regard to the most critical current issue: the American people gave the Democrats control of Congress because they want an end to the war in Iraq. The Democrats seem almost impotent on this issue.Eric, Portland, Maine
Checks and balances? What is that? That sounds like one of those old terms they used to teach us like "Constitution" or "right to privacy." Forgive me while I check my old poli-sci books to get a refresher on that one.Matt, Colorado Springs, ColoradoShould Al Gore run for president?
Yes! My hope is that Obama and Clinton sink each other so that Gore steps in to win the nomination and the election.Angela, Laurel, Maryland
Short and sweet: no way. He's had his chance and the American citizens said "no."Imogene, Roanoke, Virginia
Of course Gore should run. If he doesn't want to, he should be drafted by the Democratic Convention. After all, we all know that he really won in 2000; he certainly won the popular vote. And his reputation has gone up from his activities since then. Gore for President!Al
Yes I do think Gore should run for president in 2008. From the way things are going in this country, he well might be a shoo-in. The only decent guy running for the Republicans (if he ever decides to) is Hagel. That would be a very interesting campaign if both these guys would get in the contest.Pat, Deckerville, Michigan
