Well the rest of the morons in the country won't give me the chance to vote for anyone I'd really like, so yes, I'll vote for the least bad choice because not to vote is to tacitly approve of the worst choice.

I can't make myself like a contemptible person, even if he/she is the least bad. And I have no respect for anyone who can.

I really like Obama, but quite honestly, I just don't think he's ready for the job. When the NH primary comes around, I'll probably register as a Democrat to vote for HRC.

A lot of people seem to think Clinton should pick Obama as a running mate if she wins, and while I don't know if he'd do it, I think it would be a great ticket.

I agree. I don't think it would happen, but what an amazing ticket...

I'm pretty sure Romney got elected in MA in 2002 because of his hair. That's certainly all I heard leading up to that election - not much about his positions (which he would later change anyway).

A friend of mine working on Biden's campaign basically said he is planning to end up Secretary of State when I asked if he was aiming for VP. I said "so you mean he's running for secretary of state." She said "No, he's running for president." She's been drinking too much of the koolaid.

I will be holding my nose when I sign my absentee ballot, no matter who it's for. I am tilting towards Clinton but it's between her, Obama and Edwards.

I don't know ifI'll ever get to vote in a booth...

Romney was elected because of the debate hosted by Tim Russert within weeks of the election. The other candidate said that she would support minors getting abortions without parental consent. That turned the tide for Romney.

There's a big difference between using someone else's words without giving them credit and calling a group of outstanding women something derogatory...

Maybe, just maybe we can discuss this in another thread. I did not realize forgiveness depended on the type of sin/or wrong done to another person.

So back to the thread.....

Biden
Hillary
Obama
Dennis K.

Rudy

No other Republicans are worthy of a vote? If you could vote in the primary that is not the general election.

Well, for a while I was mixed between Rudy and Fred. I think I've decided that I like Rudy better, plus, I really dont think Thompson is electable. He'll become kind of like Obama when he jumps in. Everyone thought Obama would easily, easily win the presidency before he entered the race, then he did, and became just another candidate.

My mom really likes Duncan Hunter. I suppose he isnt bad, but I'm sold on Rudy.
