I'm pretty much decided, I think, but I wonder if anyone can guess.

Alan Keyes

I just liked the picture.

Well, I like him, but I will choose at least a semi-serious candidate.

1st choice: Any GOP candidate vs. democrat.

2nd choice: Governor Huckabee.

I mean me. I'm curious to see who people think I will vote for.

Methinks you've been Huckabeed.

12-16-2007, 04:31 PM
For some reason, I'm going to go with McCain

Interesting results so far. I'll name and explain later or tomorrow. I just wondered how the board perceived me as aligning with the candidates. I want to test another theory of mine as well.

I think Thompson would give us the best option here.

The last actor we put in the White House seemed to do alright, maybe another actor will be what we need.

All of them are actors to a degree, but at least we would know that the president was a professional actor after the election rather that the amateurs that are also running.

It seems like you've been saying some nice things about Huckabee over the past few weeks so he could be the one, but my guess is Romney.

Since you're limiting yourself to semi-serious candidates I elminated Hunter, Paul, Tancredo, and Stay Home off the bat. I also doubt that you've picked Thompson because of his dismal campaign so far.

I don't think Rudy is where you'll go with your primary vote so that leaves Huckabee, Romney, and McCain.

I wouldn't have said McCain, but now that I hear Lieberman is going with him....those who chose McCain may be right.

Definitely Romney (you douche).

Or McCain, yeah. I could see that.

My hunch is McCain or Huckabee, so I'll say McCain.

I said that Cochise would vote for Huckabee. Did he give his answer already?

McCain.

Sorry. I'll write back later. I was going to do a list of each candidate and write why I couldn't choose that one and then why I will most likely pick the one I did.

Here, let me help

All candidates other than Ron Paul = GAY (nttawwt)

Ron Paul = Not Gay

Good Job! :thumb:

Well, two of you were correct.


Giuliani - Positives: foreign policy. Negatives: the rest. I regard him with respect but don't think he's right for this job. A high level foreign policy post, vice president, I can live with that.

Huckabee - Would probably make a good president. In line on social issues. Saying the right things on immigration. I admire him. The spending concerns are hard for me to get over, though.

Hunter - I like him. The 'just say no to free trade' stuff puts me off. I'm not at this time in favor of military action against Iran, though, so his statements that he's already for it kind of put me off as well.

McCain - I'm surprised so many of you picked this. I have general respect for John McCain but I won't vote for anyone who supported the amnesty bill.

Paul - Don't think I need to elaborate.

Romney - He gave a detailed answer as to why his mind supposedly changed to becoming pro-life, I thought it was satisfactory. I don't think he would be any less pro-life in practice than the others. Gave an unimpressive answer in a debate on the energy issue - I want to see something more than the alternative fuels band-aid. However, it's hard for me to assign a knock to him. I like that he wants to eliminate the capital gains tax. My #2.

Tancredo - I like most of what he says, but he seems pretty one-issue. Need to see more of a comprehensive vision.

Thompson - I think he's got the right ideas on limiting the size and role of government. Favors cutting taxes. Voted against the marriage amendment but seems to be right on the issue. Good on immigration. Good on Iraq and GWOT.

He seems most committed to change Iran without a direct military confrontation, like supporting an opposition and what seems to mean covert operations. I believe confrontation with Iran with any of the other candidates would be inevitable, and maybe it is - but maybe it doesn't have to be. He seems most committed to exploring that option.

As patteeu said, his campaign hasn't exactly set the world on fire. I realize he probably won't win. I see this as a vote for the set of positions that best identify my ideal for the party. He's the only candidate that I can read more about and I never find much of anything to object to.

If someone else wins the party's nomination, that's cool. I'll come home. But for the primary I will go ahead and go with Fred.

What's going on with the 8 people who voted for Ron Paul? Do they even read the poll questions or are they programmed to answer "Ron Paul" any time his name appears as an option?

That's what I was thinking. some of the Ronbots just wandered in and reflexively voted his name.

FWIW I don't remember reading Kotter's writings on the subject. I'm aware of the bandwagon thread but haven't been reading it regularly.

I was just :Poke: you. Mr. Kotter hasn't been as adamant about the inevitability of you candidate for the past several weeks anyway. I think Thompson is a reasonable choice. I'd currently put him at 3rd on my internal ranking list. I haven't made my final decision yet.

Right, I picked up on it. I just didn't want Kotter getting the credit. :drool:
