Who are you leaning towards for President in 2008?

It seems the more debates and conferences and news about all the candidates that are available, the murkier my ideas of who I want as our next President become. This, via Huffington Post, is pretty cool. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it shows which candidate matches your views most closely. Take a minute and look at it. I was slightly surprised by my results - which I'll share only after hearing back from some of you ...

Update: My results/thoughts in the comments section.

# 1 Bill Richardson 66% similarity

Kucinich, Gravel, and Richardson... Good Lord, and here I thought I was a Libertarian!

Adam said...

I used to hate her but now I'm all about the Hillary Clinton. I took the quiz and came out most aligned to Kucinich (88%). I'm not surprised but the man is not electable on a national level and if this nation is going to survive the Dems cannot invest in a loser (Like John Kerry) again.

Scott said...

Well, that little quiz just confirmed that I'm on the right track so far.

Scott-
That's the most political answer in here!

Interesting quiz. It really only proves that I don't match the platform of either party ... I'm too bipolar. Of the "maybe electable" candidates, I have an equal match with Hillary and Mitt (notice that I like to call everybody by their first names). However, for each candidate there are areas of strong agreement and areas of strong disagreement.

Not really sure who I'm going to vote for. I guess we'll have to see once it all really gets going.

Why am I not surprised that Hillary is crying wolf stating that her gender is a strike against her? If she thinks that now, do we want that for a President?

Okay - my results were Kucinich, Clinton and Edwards. I agree 100% with Adam (above) - Kucinich is not electable. I want so much to like Edwards more than I do, but I'd rather vote for his wife than for him. I also REALLY want to be head-over-heels for Obama, but he needs more experience - he's screwing himself in his campaining. And, I wasn't sure I was heading this way - but at the moment (a bit early, yes, but IMPERATIVE the way the country has gone the past few years!) I would absotively vote for Clinton. I don't care if she's pulling the gender card - everyone has a card they can pull. Maybe I want a heavy-handed bitch in control. I honestly have a feeling that she could do it - and do it WELL.

My two cents.

Scott said...

Fine, Andrew. Hillary Clinton 89%

Took the test twice, and resonated with Kucinich and Gravel. I'll probably vote for Edwards.
