Who are you planning on voting for?

As an independant voter in the state of Massachusetts, I have the ability to vote in either primary.

In this case, I am convinced that there are two people I may potentially vote for.

Rudy or Obama.

I believe today based on all that I have read that I am going to register to vote in the Democratic primary and vote for Obama.


All of this may change, but I like more and more what I am seeing from Obama.

ANy thoughts?

[Q]To make the government more accountable, Obama said he would post all non-emergency bills online for five days before he signed them into law, allowing Americans a chance to weigh in on the legislation. In addition, he said he would post all meetings between lobbyists and government agencies online.

Obama said he would require Cabinet officials to speak to Americans via national broadband town-hall style meetings to discuss issues at their agencies. He also pledged to issue an executive order that information about the government's operations must be released to those seeking it unless it could harm a protected interest.

Obama cited his record of backing ethics and lobbying reforms, including co-authoring a bill that requires all government spending to be posted online - allowing anyone to do a simple Internet search and find that information. He said that during his time as a state lawmaker he helped to create hospital report cards so that patients could understand the quality of care offered at each hospital.[/Q]

God I love this!

Dennis K. The only one with guts enough to support marriage equality.

May I ask why? Seems to me that he has stuck his foot in his mouth multiple times over the last 2 or 3 weeks. Good luck getting him the nomination though. He'll need it.

I plan on electing Rudy Giuliani the next President of the United States. For the most part right now I am a one issue guy- terrorism. Whoever's position on the War on Terror I like best will get my vote. That guy is Rudy. I love his whole "stay on offense" theme.

ETA: If you like Obama for his stances, fine. Just please dont tell me you're going to vote for him because he is black and/or cute and/or a good speaker. That crowd makes me fear the future of politics.

exactly. i'm tired of gov't sanctioned discrimination. and seriously, if we want some improvement in our economy it is about friggin time we get rid of nafta and wto.

i liked obama before he ran for president. now i don't care much for his policy. i guess now when we have to listen to him discuss his platform i have to actually pay attention instead of drool and look on with starry eyes.

In my state I can't vote in either primary because I'm a registered independent but in the general election, I'm probably going to support Hillary. If I could vote in the Democratic primary I'd vote for Biden. If I had a vote in the Republican primary, I'd vote for Ron Paul.

Overall, I like Biden the most, followed by Hillary Clinton.

No one in the Liberal party, that's for sure... For our upcoming election, I mean.

I have a reputation in here for liking someone because of their color.


I like that he has stuck his foot in his mouth. He is new and fresh and has ideas that resonate....change.

And that is important to me at this point.

I too like Biden. He's probably my favorite. But, if it's still neck and neck between Hillary and Obama my support would go to Obama.

Ditto, too, though as our vote is forced to 'count', mine is clearly not going anywhere of value - so it becomes a moral vote more than anything. And for this, I am still undecided where my precious one vote is going!

Good to see you back Dread...

I'm still very undecided. Obama is exciting, I lived in Chicago when he was elected and he did some really great fresh things...

I applaud you for admitting this, but man it's a dangerous way to vote.
