Choosing not to vote is a legitimate form of political expression.

Besides, I think the right to complain is somewhere in the Constitution.

I'll have to come through Google and see if I can find the exact speech and the person she was referring too. She referred to someone, who I believe had worked for the Clinton White House, as "a Jew bastard." At a public event no less. I can't remember if she elaborated further--it's pretty tame as comments go, but still.

I remember reading all about it on Slate, it was a minor fracas.

Ah, found it. I didn't remember it being an old comment, if said at all, in which case I withdraw my remark!

But I'd still vote for McCain.

Hillary Clinton, Anti-Semitic remarks

I'm not registered with either party, but 90% of the time I vote Democrat. I've never voted for a Republican presidential candidate, but between these two it would go to McCain.

Unfortunately, the right wing of the Republican party will never let it happen. And if they do, it will be because McCain recoils somehow and goes against what he has stood for his entire political career, which would make me probably change my mind.

But in a perfect world, McCain.

I'm not a US citizen, so not going to register a 'vote' here, but all those who like McCain because he's moderate and nothing like the other Republicans - if he did manage to get through and be the candidate, do you think he'd even have a chance of being the change making moderate president you would to see him be, or do you think he'd just have his hands tied by the conservative side of his own party?

always liked John McCain until he backed Bush after all that had happened in 2000, lost some respect for the man. Still generally like him, but he doesnt have the backbone I thought.

Dont like Hillary either, at all. But I did like Bill, so by default I'd go with Hillary, although I am not convinced of that yet. For the purposes of this little poll, I'd choose her.

I wouldnt be ultra-shocked to see Giuliani vs Kerry.

I happen to think Kerry would run a much better race than he did in 04, but would the party back him?? They will if the people do.
He is probably damaged goods like Gore. Loser candidates have occasionally won later, including Nixon, Bush Sr among others.

Rudy is a sentimental nod, but would the conservatives back him?
I'd think not, but the prospect of carrying New York might be too hard to pass for the big money backers.

I'd vote for Hilary.

I would honestly love to see a woman in charge.

Alright. For the purposes of this polling, I made up my mind to vote for a third party. Count 1 vote for Peter Griffin.

I don't want McCain as president, but come on.

McCain's naval honors include the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross. He spent years as aPrisoner of War in the Vietnam War.

I'd say the man has plenty of backbone.

And as far as his support of Dubya in 2000, the man put the success of his party above his own ahead of his won feelings. I think that took a lot more backbone than lashing out in anger would.
