If the Presidential election were held today, who would be your choice?

Depends on who sells the best lies.

We've had enough hard headedness for the past 8 years, so even though I am not happy with either of the candidates, I'd pick whoever has the more open mind.

Ah, who are we fooling? It won't matter since they are nothing but hand puppets anyway.

McCain. As much as I like Obama and am happy to see him close to closing the door on another Clinton or Bush presidency my politics (taxes, economy, WoT, Iraq) are closer to McCains.

I'm not a big fan of McCain and I may still end up voting Obama if he wins the nomination. For me it's the difference between someone I agree with about 50% but really like or someone I agree with 75% but don't like all that much. In the end since I view the President as more of a figure head (he can only propose and veto things, Congress has the check book and legislative power) likability is very important for me in a President.

Should probably hold off on this until the General Election properly starts.

Obama scares me. He's never met a socially giveaway program he did not like. I'm all for helping people,but they have to make an effort to help themselves. That's the difference between the Demos and Repubs. The Demos do not require accountability the Repubs do. I'm all for helping the truly needy but they have to make an effort to help themselves.

No option was available for undecided which any intelligent, non-partisan American would be at this point in the campaign. :9: Clearly if the election was held today, I'd walk into the booth and do my mother and your mother or something. Since it's not today, I don't have an opinion.

>>Yes but who's expected to run? I know what a 3rd party is.

Libertarian convention is in July or August. Cynthia McKinney is allegedly running as a Green but there is no organized national Green Party - it's more a coalition of regionalized movements that coalesced under Nader in 96 and 2000. Haglin's Natural Law Party has disbanded. The Constitution Party and other minor parties (socialist workers, communist party, American Nazi Party, etc.) have not named their candidates yet.

>>Really? You're going to determine whether you vote libertarian based on who runs?

Absolutely. If we get a :mad: guy like Andre Marrou again, I'm probably not going to vote for him. But if they resurrected Ed Clark ( :17: ), I'd vote for him in a heartbeat over anyone.

And then there's Unity 08 and the possibility of a strong independent run (Bloomberg for instance) which could sway me immediately to vote for the Jewish guy. :shrug:

I don't know. I think the candidates positions are well enough defined for someone to make an intelligent informed decision at this point. What don't we know about them at this point that might have a material effect on their positions?

In the end I think informed folks are leaning strongly one way but could still be swayed or feel strong enough about a single issue or two to be strongly leaning one way.

Of course you will have your hard core (R) or (D) folks that won't even through a seductive glance in the other direction.
