    Let's take an early reading on this matter.

    The way it's written I chose the "I'm a contributor and I'd vote for a third party" , because if Ron Paul decides to go that way I'd really have to consider it. Otherwise, it would probably be McCain.

    "I'm not voting because South Park told me not too."

    Guess we're in more trouble than I though.

    I voted for McCain but I could vote (L), I'll see. I'm disenfranchised being in a decided state (CA) so it doesn't really matter.

    fortunately I live in DC and have Mass residency (both places going for Obama) so I can afford to vote for Nader again.

    I'll vote for someone, but it won't be Obama or McCain. The only thing that could get me to vote for one of them, is their choice of VP. If their VP choice really blew me away, then I might consider them. So maybe a 3% chance at this point. I will vote though. Maybe even your boy Nader, Waldo. :)

    Who would it take as a VP candidate for each to get you to vote for them? Anyone in particular in mind, or just saying generally it would have to be someone really good?

    I think I'd have to say it's more general now, since I couldn't possibly know everything I'd like to about a governor of another state. For example, Strickland, who's been mentioned, generally sounds like a solid individual. However, so didn't someone like Huckabee to a lot of people, until he was more scrutinized later on in the race. So for me, at this point, it's more a matter of what I'm looking for, as opposed to who. I'd very much like someone with executive experience. Someone who's run something. If it's an all legislative ticket, then I won't be particularly excited on either side. The only shot there would be an amazing platform. Cutting government, sealing the border, no Amnesty, etc. Of course, that's not happening anytime soon. :(

    I'm a reg.

    And my vote either goes to Ron Paul or Mickey Mouse.

    They would be the best choices.

    Forget about the 3 stooges...

    Oh yeah, forgot to tell ya... your vote isn't going to be counted.

    Only the Diebold voting machines figure this 51% - 49% BS out.

    But, I am voting for the simple reason that I did vote.

    Ho hum...

    NO ONE, Mccain and his "Illegal Aliens" soured me on him.

    I would never Vote Obama, this country still doesn't know the "Real Obama" and in their rush to be politically correct his supporters don't seem to care who he really is.

    Obama will be your next President and God only knows what he has up his sleeve, keep an eye on that wife of his "Miss Michelle" she looks like she can't wait to start acting up, it won't be Girl Scout cookies & tea with her, she'll be right in your face for the next four years, Good Luck And God Help Us.

    WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T LET MICKEY MOUSE EARS SEND OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN TO DIE IN DAFUR.

    GOD DAMN AMERICA

    Obama, I guess, if I could. I'm not sure I trust him though. If I were American. I would want a Pres who would pull the reins in on foreign policy a little and deal with the coming recession instead. My problem with Obama is that I am not sure he wouldn't attack Iran if he gets the job.

    The world needs more military action in the Middle East like a hole in the head. Leave 'em to it with a discreet warning about developing or using nukes and develop alternatives to Gulf Oil.

    For the avoidance of doubt, I was in favour of Allied intervention in Iraq. It's a mistake I would not want us to repeat.

    Are you related to Paul?

    Boy, both of you are lucky that your mothers didn't have a twisted sense of humor and named you Paul. They both could be Paul Paul. Perhaps with the middle initial of P, too. Paul P. Paul. Has a nice ring to it. :D

    Since I am only 20 this will be my first time voting, and I am leaning pretty heavily towards McCain
