  • I hope is is yo mama over Obama. GO JOHN EDWARDS! (a girl can dream)
  • Hillary?
  • I say: NONE of the above.
  • you know we are in a fight for our lives here and I think we need a leader with military experience, not one whose name rhymes with our biggest enemy. McCain
  • A better question is will it matter?
  • I really like Obama and I really like Edwards. Hopefully when one beats the other they will run together as presidential candidate and vice presidential candidate. (I dislike Clinton) I actually have a joke about the three of them (clinton, edwards, obama) Okay Clinton, Edwards, and Obama are in front of god trying to get into heaven, God is sitting in front of them on a golden throne and decides he will only let one of them in. God turns to Obama and asks, "Sen. Obama what do you believe in most of all?" Barack answers, " I believe in unity between all of the American people and hope." God then turns to Edwards and asks him what he believes in most of all. Edwards says, " I believe in the betterment of the working class." Last of all, God turns to Hillary Clinton and asks, " Ms. Clinton, What do you believe in most of all." She replies, "I believe you're sitting in my chair!"
  • Neither. It'll be Clinton.
  • You are making the oversimplistic assumption that those who vote for Nader are siphoning votes away from the other two candidates. This is not necessarily true. Those who vote for Nader might not have voted at all, because the other two do not adequately represent their interests. With only about half the electorate in the USA voting in presidential elections, there are millions of people who have reason not to vote for the Big Two.
  • No. I think the Republicans are going to have a much harder time getting that much of the vote this time around. Nader is much less of a threat to the Democrats this year because of the current reputation of the GOP party. I'm sure Nader will pull away a few votes again, but I still think a Democrat will be in office.
  • I think the lesson that voting for the 3rd party candidate only weakens your preference between the two major candidates was driven home with a sledgehammer in 2000. A *lot* of left-leaning citizens voted for Nader figuring "Gore will win anyway" and learned just how awful the consequences of such a decision can be. I don't believe Nader will get anywhere near the number of votes he received in 2000 (just under 3 million votes).
  • Apparently he relishes the roll of Spoiler..he did it before and he is so desperate to get attention and to be considered useful/important,necessary/worthy/whatever, he is willing to sabotage elections..that is truly pathetic..he might have been a good guy once, long long ago..he has long-since diluted that worth and gone over to the dark side. Shame on him! :(
  • I do not agree. It's nothing like 2000. 2000 was before 9/11, before the war in Iraq, before we knew the direction our country and world were going in. While Nader has done some good things in his time, no one with any common sense would ever vote for him in a time of war. He just isn't cut out for it.
  • No- I think that Obama will end up with the Dem. nomination but be shot down for his sever lack of experience by McCain. Still hoping for Huckabee though :)
  • After what happened in 2000 a lot of people will be afraid to vote for Nader. This includes me - I did vote for him in 2000. It didn't affect the results in my state, which was overwhelmingly for Gore, but I'm still irritated about the overall result and unlikely to do it again. Now, I don't think McCain can win against Obama personally. He has managed to alienate almost everyone in the past few years, and only came out in the lead of the Republican pack due to the overwhelming crappyness of the other candidates. Hard-core conservatives don't like him to begin with, because of his Moderate stance up through the 2000 election. Moderates, Independants (like me), and open-minded liberals who might have considered him as a candidate in 2000 were alienated by his swings to the right since then. His kissing up to the religious right, his chummy relations with Bush (SEE PICTURE), and general reversal of all of his moderate stances from 2000, have lost him a lot of support. I think Obama would have it in the bag. Hillary, who could still take the nomination, would be a close call. The Dems have the momentum to take back the White House, it's just a matter of making sure their lead is HUGE enough that voting machine shenanigans can't steal the election again.
  • McCain. I think Obama will be worse than Carter.
  • Well, we have yet to know who the Democratic nominee will be. I think it will go all the way to the convention before we know for sure, sadly. No matter which is on the Democratic ticket, I'm voting Democratic. The biggest reason is the Republican party itself. I am totally against its social agenda, and it continues to pander to the Christian theocratic right - even to the point of spouting false history that it knows to be patently false. I also hardly think that moving the country backwards socially is helpful (we are now behind other countries in human rights, which used to be the hallmark of the US), but I definitely do not think it is the biggest issue for government at this (or any) time. At any rate, as a female Wiccan who cohabitates with a foreign national Hindu, their agenda is hardly in my best interest. While the party continues to emphasize and push this agenda, they will not get my vote. Another big reason is that John McCain himself, while not so bad, has moved himself too far to the right during his campaign for the Republican nomination. In doing so, he has completely alienated me. ************************************************* Edit: now that Obama has clinched the votes needed for the nomination, I can say that I'm voting for him.
  • McCain
  • If Obama is our democractic candidate then he will have my vote. If not, I'll probably go with Hillary. AS much as I don't particularly care for her, the issues that are most important to me are at the top of her list.
  • McCain, because I attend KKK rallies and lynchings but have no clue what's been going on... </end_sarcasm> UPDATE: Video Added
  • ObAmA!!!!
  • I will sleep better when McCain is at the switch.
  • When John McCain looks into the camera with his wolf's smile and a wink and states he will never, never surrender in Iraq, I get shivers. I don't want the next President to frighten me.
  • McCain.
  • McCain. Obama is a Socialist train wreck waiting to happen. He is so far to the left he's practically off the radar. I'm not happy about McCain as the GOP candidate, but as far as I'm concerned it's the lesser of the two evils.
  • Bob Barr is the one that I am voting for.
  • Obama,go with the winner,not someone outmoded.
  • If I have to choose between those 2 its McCain
  • obama 100%
  • Neither
  • OBAMA ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!
  • RALPH NADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "WHEN IN DOUBT VOTE FOR RALPH!" THATS WHAT I ALWAYS SAY... ;-) but probably obama, not mccain seeing as those are the choices
  • Too early to tell at this point. I will have to weigh ALL my options and there are more then two of them.
  • We need a democrate in the White House. Times are bad. Obama all the way!!!!!
  • I rather not vote for either of the two... But if I had to vote for one of them, I would say that McCain probably has his head a little closer to the ground... That being said, I would vote for the candidate I deem as being more realistic, as well as actually wanting to help improve the country...
  • McCain!
  • Neither.
  • I don't think either one will be bad for the country, actually. And either one might even improve it, but, I'm leaning toward Obama right now because this country is really suffocating and he seems like an intelligent breath of fresh air.
  • McCain.
  • Obama..I voted for him in the California Primary on February 5 and I was pretty certain that Hilly/billy would try to destroy him..they tried, it got ugly, but they failed miserably. So yep..Obama! :)
  • Obama....
  • Obama.
  • McCain. He seems to have better leadership qualities.
  • I am voting but I refuse to choose between those two dogs that the US political machine has chosen for us to select amongst. Too bad real democracy is gone and we the people can't actually find someone we really want to lead us.
  • I'm waiting to see who they pick as a running mate.
  • McCain is my choice. A man with character, demostrated leadership under unbelievable stress a patriot with the experience to run this country. Obama makes awesome speeches but I see nothing but well polished smoke and mirrors. He needs more seasoning.
  • Does it really matter! 6 of one - 1/2 dozen the other
  • NoYB - HINT: Registered Republican, but that doesn't NORMALLY mean anything to me...
  • Obama, clearly. Is there a McCain girl? I don't think so.
  • I don't exactly like McCain but atleast hes not crazy like obama. I can also respect McCain more since his servive in Vietnam. He also more pro-life unlike that baby killing supporter obama: and he calls himself a christian.
  • McCain; he has much more of the "right stuff." Obama himself has some merit, but there are a lot of people in his camp we better be leary of. It's kind of like getting married; people often don't realize they are not just marrying the person - they are marrying the family, warts and all!
  • Neither......
  • Obama. Definitely.
  • McCain
  • John is too old Obama is to Moslem/muslim
  • OBAMA!
  • McCain or The Gods must be crazy
  • None of the above.
  • Neither, I don't think. But if I was choosing, I pick Obama.
  • Neither. I'm writing in Ron Paul.
  • Obama. McCain is just another badass wannabe republican who wants nothing more than to ruin this country further by taxing us out the ass and raise gas to the point where no one can afford to even start their car and basically shut the entire country down. He puts on this front about not wanting war, but he's a republican so I know that's crap. All republicans want is war, taxing the poor, 50 dollar a gallon gas, every psycho nut on the street to have guns, and no laws.
  • certainly there will be more than two names on the ballot.
  • obama!
  • Obama!!!!
  • Obama, if he can get his wife's mouth under control!!
  • I may vote for a third party candidate, I haven't decided yet.
  • I hate both options. I may not even vote. If I do, I hope at least one other name comes up on the ballot. If not, I shall write in "Bill Clinton". He won't win but it is a better answer than the only two options given.
  • After careful consideration... my vote is most likely going to be for John McCain.
  • Obama. We need change! YES WE CAN!
  • Barack Obama without a doubt. Voting for John McCain means voting for 4 more years of George W. Bush. It's a disgusting thought that shouldn't even be considered by any thinking adult.
  • Obama. McCain is unsavoury.
  • well, mccain supports bush...
  • Obama. As a reasonably intelligent and sane person, why in God's name would I vote for four more years of the same OLD thing? give the kid a shot....how much worse could he be?
  • To be honest. Probably neither.
  • I've voing for Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party even though he's not going to win. I only vote for people who would be best for the country, and NOT because of their popularity. I don't buy into propaganda from corporate media.
  • Though both are not my favourites, I would prefer McCain, a determined soldier.
  • McCain. He's the only one who actually has a pair.
  • I would vote for McCain. Obama already mentioned that all 57 states will be paying for more government spending on stupid things that our economy just can't afford.
  • Mcaine. Obama sucks
  • I say McCain because I think we need to stick to tradition. Some old white guy who knows his politics. I'm not racist but there are plenty of people who are and he's said to be mixed with African American. So think about it.... that's just plain fact whether you like it or not. I also heard he refused to pledge to the American flag and he's supposed to be our PRESIDENT? Yeah some president.... look up your history before you decide to vote. I think he's the Antichrist in my opinion because mostly everyone looks up to him but hey....
  • probably obama
  • Obama.
  • McCain ALL THE WAY! He's a TRUE American who is very very loyal and has expirience with war . If we elect obama he'll stop the war and the chances of us getting attacked is MUCH MUCH greater! McCain does not glorify the war but knows that we must continue it to win to not only protect us and our allies but the INNOCENT Iraqis who home land has been taken over by terroists. Oh and to find bin-laden
  • We need someone expierenced MCCAIN ALL THE WAY!
  • Obama. My prediction is that McCain will win though. :(
  • I am not all that thrilled with either of them, but I will probably vote McCain. Obama makes me very uncomfortable...there's just something about him.
  • McCain
  • McCain all the way. I think Obama is a wolf in sheeps clothing who is just saying what people want to hear
  • Neither. But McCain will win, the same reason why Hillary lost, she's a woman, Obama is black and people are racist. Sad but true. I do wish Obama the best!
  • Obama will win because he has stimulated peoples' feeling that America is still a place where you can dream about a better future. Also McCain wants to keep the war in Iraq going another 5 years. Plus McCain is 71 years old. And Evangelical Republicans don't like him as much as Bush.
  • Obama will win because America is so fed up with Bush, although that may not be what is best for America. I agree with you spacecade, Obama knows how to work the crowd and is saying all the right things at all the right times. How can we trust him when he claims to be a Christian, but immediately denies his church once it get in the way of his image?
  • McCain. He has a track record of fiscal responsibility. His change is proven and tangible.
  • McCain, prisoner of war and military experience. Obama, no military experience and changes his religion preference to boost his chance of winning.
  • Obama. Truth be told I don't like either of them, but Obama is the lesser of two evils.
  • I want McClain to win but we all know now the Obaba has got it in the bag. If McClain were President, I believe he would send troops to Israel and that would totally help out with the war out there and all. But with Obama, he won't do anything. Israel is going to get bombed something soon by all it's surrounding countries. I know for a fact that Israel is going to bomb Iran probably sometime soon too. I don't like the fact that Obama claims to be christian, yet he seems to have no knowledge of things said in the bible. His father is Muslim, so I mean I don't think these next years with Obama will be the greatest...Which sucks, right?
  • Obama because he will take our troops out of Iraq.Mccain wants to keep the troopsin Iraq and he basicly has the same strategy as Bush.So if Mccain wins,we'll lose this war.But Obama will take the troops out and help our own country.I like Israel,but they really need to learn how to get used to being out of war.
  • Definitely McCain. I’m not thrilled with either one of them, but I disagree with Obama on pretty much every significant issue.
