Taking the pulse in a different way. I think many of us are completely dissastisfied with all the Presidential candidates.

Don't like Hillary, Obama or McCain. Don't know who I'm going to vote for. They all seem like mostly the same candidate.

It's a lose lose situation for the country.

We have no promise for the future with any of them.

The only thing we can stand on is that the US is resiliant and will weather the next administration regardless of what we all think about the person elected.

Well I'm not one of Obama's disciples, and the Clinton's will never get a vote from me. I suppose the one thing that could get a McCain vote from me is if he picked a big time conservative for VP to set them up for the Oval Office in 8 years (or when he kicks the bucket) I might be able to vote for him.

I'm really waiting to see the other candidates that are going to jump in the race. Especially the conservative ones.

I still plan to write on Ron Paul. There is no way I can vote for any of the three that are currently left.

Can't stand any of these assholes still remaining. I would vote for McCain if I had to pick one of them, mostly because he would cut SOME spending and we could avoid the inevitable failure that would be a socialized healthcare system, but I'll most likely be voting 3rd party or writing in Ron Paul.

We lived through Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Bush was a piece of cake.

At least with Bush the job market has been great. My 401K took a major hit after 9/11 but has trippled since. The growth in the 401K during Clinton's years was exceptionally dismal.

Hate to say it, but a write in or selecting an independant is just throwing away your vote IMO.

You are almost in the position in determining who is the least objectionable this time around.

I have to vote for a third party again. I know that it is throwing my vote away. I think that no matter how you vote anymore it is wasted. I just can not vote for either one of the two major parties. I would not be able to take enough showers to feel clean again.

The really sad part is that I have been eligible to vote since 1978. In 2004 I voted for John Kerry and that was the first time I had even bothered to vote in the General Election. Even then that was not a vote for Kerry, it was a vote against Bush (which, being in Texas, I knew was also a wasted vote).

I have decided that since I can not vote for who they are putting up any more than I could vote for the other idiots along the years, I am voting for someone even if it is a wasted vote. My honest other choice is not to vote again. I can not, in good conscience, vote for any of the three left in the race at this time.

Yeah, but it's all inflation so it really went no where in reality. May even become worthless if we continue on our current path.

I'm not ragging on you, but that's the stance that has this country screwed up. How many times have you heard someone say,"I don't really like (so-and-so) but I think he/she has the best shot at getting elected."

The winner-takes-all approach in many of the Republican primaries effectively washed out the wishes of millions of voters and left us with the guy about a third of the prty thought was most electable.

I don't know what would be beter, but it certainly doesn't feel like a republic.

I'll be voting for McCain this fall, but there's no way that he's "my dog". He's just less mangy than Hillary or Obama.

ICH bin Spartakus.


And I nearly puke every time I think that in a country of 300,000,000 citizens these 3 asshats are the best we can come up with. It's either Dr Paul on a write in for me or *sigh* voting the least stinky of the three piles of dog dung currently available. Unfortunately that would be McLame. I haven't decided yet.

It's tough because there's certain issues I side with the right, and other issues where I side with the left.

I'm sure most people are like that, so you end up having to go with a guy where you don't agree with all of his takes.

Right. If you believe that you should pull all of your money out of the 401K, pay the penalty and live like there is no tomorrow.

I'd rather invest and lose than not invest and be positive that I won't have anything.

Let me just say that this poll says Hillary should withdraw (based only on Planet population of course).

I'd rather that she stay in the race. The one aspect of this election that I feel may have an impact is the infighting between the two democrats. The longer they are at each others throats the less time they have to be on the attack against the only other candidate. He's currently having free reign on the nation.

To me this poll says that there are more suckers embracing Obama than all other candidates combined.
