Obama. Kucinich is simply too unrealistic IMO.

Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: When I type 'Obama' into an Outlook email, my spell checker suggests 'Osama'.

I've been wavering between Edwards and Obama for months, but I think I am now firmly in Obama's camp.

Whomever one votes for, I most sincerely hope it has to do with agreeing with a candidate's platform, and not just "jumping on the bandwagon." It is the latter that has made our primary system completely worthless.

Our Presidential candidates, otherwise, are now determined for 300 million Americans by a mere 200,000 or so from Iowa.

Although the Michigan primary has been completely neutered, thanks to partisan politics, I would still be voting for Hillary Clinton, because I still believe that she has the best combination of experience and pragmatism in her policies. I'm not looking for a candidate that makes me feel good inside; I'm looking for a candidate who I think will get down to business and accomplish something important.

I cringe a little when I hear Hillary inflate her resume with "35 years of experience". It implies she may co-govern with Bill, who seems a bit cozy with the Bushes.

Here I thought I was the odd person out..
But with one exception, Hillary does make me feel good or rather hopeful, inside.
But I have to say, I love my choices and Obama is doing great things for the Democratic party.

If Obama can make people feel so good inside to the point that they become engaged when normally they wouldn't be, more power to him.

Not everybody's words may inspire action, but his do. That's what counts.

I want to reiterate that I'm not here to tell people not to vote for Obama. I'm just asking people to make sure that you're not just voting for him, because Iowa did.

Don't join the bandwagon for the sake of voting for a winner, because the bandwagon itself makes a mockery out of our primary system.

I agree wholeheartedly about the bandwagon thing. Before Iowa it was deemed a very close race and now suddenly it isn't.

I agree, I'd like to state that Obama was always my 2nd choice behind Biden even though I knew Biden never stood a chance. The reason I was hesitant about Obama was I wasn't sure he could pull it off, but seeing the turnout he generated in Iowa sealed the deal for me.

But yes, people should go with who they really want, not with who happens to be winning.

All this bandwagon talk reminds me of 2004 when everyone was behind Kerry (myself included) just for the fact that he was running against Bush. A banana could have run against Bush and people would have been hyping up the banana. Ah, memories.

Right now I am leaning towards Obama, again. I thought in the beginning he'd be my candidate, then he lost me a bit, then I was going undecided, but in the past few weeks I find myself slowly going back to him.

The banana would have had a better chance because the whack-jobs on the right wouldn't have been able to smear its Vietnam record.
