While both candidates are close to or are moving to the center, I think McCain would carry the day.

I tend to lean to the left on most issues, but if the choice was between McCain and Clinton, I'd probably have to go with McCain.

That really is a tough one. I might have voted for McCain a few years back. And with Hillary, too early to tell. I'd have to see how the campaign shaped up. Either way, neither of these candidates motivates me enough to express any thoughtful commentary when the next presidential election is still over three years away.

Although I think Rudy would be a great nod, as tough a time as McCain will have winning the base in the Republican Party, it will be almost impossible for Rudy to win the base because of his position on abortion.

With that said, would you support McCain or Clinton in 2008?

So far:

McCain 5 votes

Clinton 1 vote


U2democrat, odowdpa, Irvine511, MrsSpringsteen, nbcrusader, barlowdog, are either undecided or have not clearly indicated who they would vote for in such a race if they had to at this time. nbcrusader said McCain would win the race, and although I assume he would vote for McCain, I'll wait to include him in the vote total until he confirms that.

So would you vote for McCain if he was running against Hillary Clinton?

Although I haven't liked some of his recent statements, would vote for McCain if election held today. (Unless VP was Rudy )

is McCain pro-life? (sorry, don't know these things )

edit: just looked it up, apparently he's pretty pro-life (I'm sure everyone knew that but me)...anyway, I wouldn't vote solely on that issue, but his pro-life stance would be a negative for me.

I was glad to read your 'self-immolation of the Republicans' comment, Irvine. It's what I devoutly hope myself, and having someone who's opinion I respect say it makes my afternoon.

Well I'd probably vote Clinton, but as I've stated many times before...I don't think this country is ready for a woman president, we've taken too many steps back socially with this administration. I think the Dems would be shooting themselves in the foot if they nominated Clinton...she's make a damn good vice-pres though. She's already done it once.
