So who do you like for 2008?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
There is so much buzz already about the presidential race! So far, I have been really trying to get a feel for the candidates and researching their agendas and so forth. I am one who votes for individual candidates, not strictly on party. I am still early in the process of deciding who I will be rooting for but so far, I really like Barack Obama. Who is/are your early favorite(s)?

I'm definitely more in tune with the GOP candidates, and thankfully it appears that the frontrunners are more in the moderate part of the spectrum.

That said, I like McCain, Guilliani, and Fred Thompson. Don't know a lot about Thompson but what I do know I like.

Don't know yet, I do know who I would NOT vote for and really hope this candidate doesn't sit in the White House

OMG can you imagine! That would be worth seeing

I like Obama so far. He makes most sense to me of the choices I have. Subject to change, of course. I only know I won't vote republican.

None of them.

I wish we could take propaganda and politics out of politics.

You know...I just might have to do that!

I actually like one from each party: Democrat Obama and Republican: Guilliani. I'm more of a Democrat, but I really admire Guilliani for what he's done for New York, as well as how he handled 911.

Lookingglass, my husband is a HUGE Kucinich fan, too.

We're registered republicans, so we'll probably be going with Guilliani in the primaries. No idea about the general election, though I doubt it'll be a republican.

eheh Guilliani is more democrat then republican, but some would say the same about McCain. Mccain is the only one that i like, out of all of them.

I completely agree with this!

I don't want that woman to win, either.

I like NO ONE None of them ever do whats right for the people of this country. The same issues have been around forever and they will always be here. Not worth voting we vote for what we want and never get it.

I'm with you. Of course I'm in Cleveland where Dennis is from. He was a boy Councilman from the Steel mills and understands the plight of the average person. No way would I vote for John Roberts. I liked him but can't vote for anyone who would pay $400 for a haircut even if he had personal money. Imagine how he would spend if in the White House. He has no concept of the real world. $400 would buy a lot of groceries for families.

I have never even heard of Dennis Kucinich before. He won't win if he doesn't put some real money into his campaign. I see he is here for Cinco De Mayo. So, he is campaigning. It's just that I've never heard of him.

I believe McCain was originally a Democrat, as was Reagan. I've switched my party affiliation, too, but in the opposite direction, so that's not meant as criticism.

And I heard that Hilary was originally a Republican until she met and married Bill Clinton.

Yep, she admits that in her autobiography. I'd rather have candidates who aren't so dyed in the wool. Reagan was actually a Democrat in his early years, believe it or not!

I have always like hilary, then when obama came along I though...wow. Pretty good. Now edwards.
It's like an embarasment of riches.
I think I am leaning for edwards.

As for you folks the want the propaganda out of politcs. You can do that yourself. Be choosy about your news sources. Research the candidates and take responability for your vote. There is just more than fox news as info out there.
For myself I don't even look at the political ads. I just read up on what the candidates actually do and who they associate /w.

As for Giuliani. He rallied people in ny after 9/11. But he also wanted to suspend the elections. He put the emergency respond center IN the towers. Sent emergency rescue crews to work in a toxic atmosphere w/out protections. And is a republican. The repulicans have done enough damage to this country.

As far as I am concerned I am ashamed he is even remotly italian.
post #25 of 29
I went for lunch with my best bud the other day who is a Democrat. I asked her who she liked and boy oh boy did I get an earfull. Basically, what it boiled down to was that she HATES Hillary.

Right now the only one I'd vote for is McCain.

Or maybe imp98...

Obamarama!

Man, if he wins the primary, the country will get an education in Chicago politics, which are different than politics anywhere else (vote early, vote often!). That's really the only "baggage" this man has that he hasn't publically and honestly admitted to himself, and he hasn't necessarily done anything scandalous...but I would imagine just being in politics in Chicago is a liability.

But, I like the fact that he's open and up-front. Maybe it's just because I've met him, but he just seems more HUMAN than anyone else out there. We're fallible, and he doesn't try to hide his mistakes. He's also an excellent public speaker, and after 4 years with President Cantstringasentencetogether, I'm almost ready to vote for him on account of that! In terms of politics, I'm closer to Kucinich, but Obama's politics don't disgust me, and he's kind of our hometown boy here. He's EXTREMELY popular in Chicago. His wife and kids are great.

lol Hillary was in in town over the weekend, and well lets just so ,no one showed up. i listened to her speech , i wish i could find that link.

among the statments wa that when her husband was in charge, there was no internet for the public, funny i was on the internet in 1981. and i was still in high school.

the other statement, i will assume was just a slip so

no wonder the other party is hoping she wins for the dem.

Personally, I'm all for Bill Richardson, but, since it looks like he's more of a dark horse in this race, my vote is with Hill. I would LOVE to see a strong female president and cannot wait for another Clinton White House! I think Obama and Clinton should team up- talk about a dream team!
As far as Giuliani goes: by all appearances, he would be my favorite Republican nominee (if someone strapped me down and ripped out my fingernails one-by-one until I was forced to vote Republican!) because he is the most moderate. However, I have a coworker that worked in the NYC mayor's office and she has told me horror stories about how Giuliani treated African American employees. I could never in good faith vote such an awful racist into the White House.
