This is funny...

Sen G. Allen, R 100% (WHO?)
Gov Mitt Romney, R 83%
Rep Duncan Hunter R 83% (WHO?)
....

Giuliani came in at 64%...he's my First Choice!

IIRC, there's a link to find out more about each candidate on the results
page.

Hmmm... me, too.

(100%) 1: Sen. Barack Obama (D)

You don't suppose his campaign committee is running the site?

However, there's more to this than agreement with the candidate. Politics
is the art of the possible. We may want a candidate with a record of
accomplishment on things that we *mostly* agree with. I'd be perfectly
happy with a guy I line up 70-80% as long as he could get things done.
Which is why I'll be looking at Richardson.

And electable. 70-80% is w-a-a-a-y better than another Bush destroying the
country.

It links to a viewpoint grid.

However, more information on Duncan Hunter is just a Google away.

I thought there'd be fact sheets. Oh, well. I went to look it up & see
what was on offer via those links - afterwards, but discovered I'd have to
take the quiz again to hit the results page, so didn't; at least not yet.
Maybe later.

Maybe that's because you are enamored by his image and don't really
know his viewpoint on political issues. He really is quite liberal, he
just seems conservative compared to most other New Yorkers.

It will be President Hunter or President Brownback.

Brownback came up for me for number 2, but I wouldn't ever vote for him. He
is an illegal lover just like Bush.

don't know anything about him, other than I answered the questiions and
up he and hunter came. Mr. Obama will be held toes to the fire as the
process moves forward, so will Mrs Clinton. We'll come to find out what
their views are on gun control, that should be very interesting.

Really? Then might you explain why the other day you were insisting that I
will vote for Hillary C. & that I hate B. Obama? Seems like you just did a
180º.

I suppose because you are a teach, everything has to be spelled out,
with T's crossed and i's dotted.

Let me put upon the record, you won't vote for the liberal Republican
Giuliani, (not liberal enough for ya) neither will I.

Teaching does involve clarity - if a teacher tries to get an idea across but
his/her meaning is ambiguous, one kid will assume one thing, another will
take it another way, while another kid will think s/he was referring to yet
something else. If you don't want to be misunderstood, it has to be written
w/some reasonable degree of clarity so that I know what you're talking
about, instead of you being broad/vague & me trying to guess what you really
mean by your words.

Who knows? It's very early days yet. I don't *think* I will wind up voting
for him, but I do want to take a closer gander at all of his positions. He
merits my attention, AFAIC.

I do know. He's like William Weld, or old Gov.
