I've seen people with similar reasons for the decline and then get approved for Amex 3 or 4 months later so its possible. Make sure there aren't any in-accurate items on your reports also.
Very strange, I have been approved for every card I've applied for from them. I tried getting the Quicksilver recently and had to call CapitalOne to approve the application. Afterwards I applied for the EveryDay and got instant approval (which I thought I would have been denied since I have two other cards with them). Possibly having other cards with them makes it easier?
As for the OP, I would try to remove those derogatory remarks from your credit report (especially the one about not paying as agreed - they are most picky about that and will apply penalty APRs to those who pay late). Wait for your credit to age and try again.
