Who do you think would be the best choice for President of the US?

Granted, I don't think anyone would agree that either of the choices we have would be the best choice out there? And try to state a reason as to why you would think he/she would be the one.

For those of you who like Gore check this link out:

I don't know if any one person is qualified.

Maybe we should use President-by-committee!

Seeing that Dub-ya would have problems matching wits with a common tree slug, I have to go with Gore. Maybe I set my standards too high, but I just can't shake the belief that the leader of the free world has to be able to spell 'cat' without somebody spotting him the 'c' and the 't'.

Nowhere is it written that the pres has to be a Rhodes scholar. Apparently the current one isn't all [b]that[/b] smart.

Bush is sincere, has a proven track record and seems to be honest. He doesn't have to split legal hairs about 'no controlling legal authority', pay Naiomi Wolf to teach him how to be a man, or reinvent himself umpteen times.

Policy wise Bush favours privatising social security, lower taxes, a stronger military, and less regulation. That's more than enough for me.

Bush couldn't even praise his parents without it sounding canned. He's the most finely tuned political robot in the history of the land. His image is a lie-- he drives around that Texas ranch as if he's spent years breaking his back trying to get at the fat of the land-- yet the reality is that he's an silver spooned, east coast preppy, Ivy Leager, who probably hasn't touched a cow in his life. There is nothing sincere about that.

Plus, he's dumber than a post. Sure, you don't need to be a Rhodes Scholar, but you also should be smarter than the average garden impliment. Bush ain't.

Hey Donk!

Don't bronc fans know how to read, or do they not understand what they read. It isn't a post to bash a candidate, but to state who you feel would be better qualified and why.

I think I'd rather vote for Lieberman or McCain rather than Gore, Bush, or Chaney. I want someone with a strong sense of dedication to serving this nation and a moral backbone. I also want them to have a history of standing up to their own party and crossing the 'line' when their convictions call for it. I want someone who understands that the executive branch is not there to circumvent the legislative process or judical system. Someone who understands that judges should not be appointed according to political views on popular issues. I want someone who will balance free enterprise and government regulation. I want someone who can help pick our constitution up off the floor and make it the center of our government again.

Unfortunately, I rank both Gore and Bush pretty low in these departments. Should I be forced to choose between dweedle dee and dweedle dum I'm not sure who I'll pick.

Okay, Gore because he ain't nearly as dumb as Bush.

I'd rather have McCain or Bob Kerrey, but those aren't options.

My last reply to Drew since it is off topic.

You talk about Bush being an East Coast canned preppy. Lets see, Bush has worked in the oil business in TX, has owned and ran the Texas Rangers in TX, and has been Gov of TX in TX. About the only East coast preppy about him is the fact that he went to Yale.

Gore on the other hand was raised in a DC hotel, went to exclusive DC prep schools, and enjoyed all the rank and privilege of being the son of a Senator in DC. All the while he waxes about his boyhood in Tenn. It would seem Gore FAR outranks Bush on the phony meter. This isn't even mentioning the various re-inventions of himself in the last year.

Why does it matter where a candidate grew up? ALL politicians are phony...it's a requirement of the job.

Bush, I guess. I don't like either one, but he's a little less phony than Gore.

One thing I don't understand about Bush... he's behind Gore in the female vote department. Knowing this would be the case, why didn't he pick Elizabeth Dole to be his running mate? Women would have been falling all over themselves to get to the voting booth if he'd done that...

Actually I know of several women that are [b]seriously[/b] turned off by Liz Dole. They say she comes across as too harsh and snobby. I don't see it myself, but several women with nothing in common have said it to me.
