Check as many as you want.
Looks like we cancelled each other out.
I voted against Hillary, Edwards, and Romney. I almost checked McCain, but that Amnesty vote hasn't happened yet. The second he votes yes, he's toast for me, as would be anyone else who votes for it.
I voted against them all, none have shown me anything that would prove that they would significantly do anything different, all are saying one thing, but am sure they will do the other. Once again when I step to the ballot box I may be voting for the lesser of the two evils, instead of the best candidate.
I expect I'll vote for the most liberal candidate; but the only declared candidate I know I won't vote for is the Senator from Kansas, I can't recall his name. I can respect and still consider someone who's against Abortion in general since its not the only issue; but somebody who doesn't think that there should be a rape or incest exception to any new restrictions on Abortion is just too much for me to stomach. Even if this gentleman was my perfect candidate in every other way that one stance is extreme enough to put me off him. Not providing an Abortion to a female who's been raped seems like torture. Oh and Bill Richardson is highly unlikely to get my vote either. Seems too weak.
All of the candidates listed in the poll have positives working in their favor.
I will make my decision according to Rule utilitarianism,moraly what would do the most good for the most people not the vocal minority.This would mean sometimes haveing the courage to go against thier convictions,and those of thier party. This is a virtue that seems to have been lost.I mean how many on THIS list would qualifie? So for me it's a dilema. If Hagel were to jump in I would give him a good listen,I like Biden's cander but his temper and mouth get in the way.It comes down to who is the closest philosophcaly to what I'm looking for.
Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney. Both are pandering to the fringe right wing in a disgusting manner.
So then you should include Hillary & Edwards since one is pandering to the extreme left, and the other is the female version of Mitt Romney.
Pander to the right ---Bad
Pander to the Far left---Good
My vote is for the Lobsterman. Everybody else just eats their own ****.
I don't understand why Romney thinks he can be president. What has he done? As governor of Mass. he certainly didn't distinguish himself.
But he looks good and has charisma. Seriously, that's not a joke. I'm sure we've all heard the ridiculous stats about how people tend to vote the taller candidate, the most handsome candidate, etc. etc. It's quite sad. For the record I checked off Obama, Clinton, and Edwards. I'm not a hardcore rightie really, but I do tend to vote for more conservative folks. Obama and Edwards are too liberal for my tastes and voting for Hilary is just anethma to me. Unfortunately no one in this race so far excites me (as usual).
