I believe that there are only a few viable canidates which I hope won't win but probably will. I believe it will be John McCain for the Republicans and Hillary Clinton for the Democrats. Unless Al Gore or Barak Obama runs then Hillary is a shoe in. view post

It is hard for me to vote for any of these guys. I disagree with all of them on so many issues, but being realistic I believe that it will be one of them regardless of how I think or feel. view post

thank the gods i am not american.. not that we have much better choices up here.. at least we have several parties. view post

We have several parties too. The problem is most American would rather vote to keep someone out of office than to vote someone into office. An example is conservatives voting for Bush just to keep Kerry out of office. All the conservatives know that Bush is not a conservative, but instead of voting for someone they agreed with they voted to keep Kerry out of office. Another example is Liberals voting for Kerry, who by the way is not a liberal he is a leftist, instead of voting for Nader who really is a liberal. Why again not out desire to see Kerry as president but rather a desire to try to get rid of Bush. The media does not help either. The only reports you will see from the major media on third party canidates is one of ridicule but mostly they kill third party candidates by ignoring them. view post

I voted John McCain. Seems like he is a moderate Republican. Flexible enough to at least disagree with Bush on important matters, but not agreeing with the Dems either. view post

John McCain seems to be more of a pragmatist than anything to me. The problem for him is that conservatives will not go to the polls to vote for him. view post

Even though there are many factions, there is really only two political parties in the US. Without winning a primary election, one cannot not readily get on a ballot in any state for the office of President. Ross Perot had a good run at in back in the 90s, but he had to have representatives in every state working to get him on the national ballot. Those who run as a Democratic or Republican can do so simply by becomng their party's national representative. At the State Election level, one will find more diversity and some states have as many as 5 or 6 parties running for a State Legislative Position.

I am undecided. With a year to read and study the facts, I won't even speculate who I will be voting for. view post

Third parties need to focus on winning at the state level and at the level of a U.S. representative. When that happens they can build the power base needed to challenge the two entrenched parties. By the way it is high time to do so. Both of their corrupt ways stink up to heaven. view post

vote for Foley......Axel Foley that is
i know he's not a candidate but he's just so fabulous.... view post

Hey what's wrong with Foley? Those young interns need to be taken advantage of by a self-centered, greedy and uncaring sociopathic liar. Why where would this world be if the emotionally mature did not try to take advantage of those that are vulnerable and young? view post

IF John McCain runs for president he has the best chance of winning against those on the list if people voted today. I personally liek John McCain because he is his own person and doesn't lean one way jsut because everyonelse does, he would make a great president.

Bill Frist would probably be next on my list.

IF Hilary runs she will just split the democrats vote. view post


Who will be President in 2008 posted 15 October 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionWho will be President in 2008 by Harrol, Moderator

I do not like him, but Al Gore may win if he runs this time around. If McCain runs the conservatives will stay home. The Republicans still need the conservatives. view post

Why dont you like John? Personally if Al Gore dets elected it would be ok because out of all the democrats I like him the most, but if Hilary is elected Im either 1)Going to shoot myself. 2) Move to Canada or 3) Cryogenically freeze myself until the next election. Not because she is a woman but because shes a mean bitch, she whines and complains but really doesnt solve any problems. view post

It is not that I dislike John but rather that I know the conservatives will not vote for him. The Reagan republicans see his type as a cancer to the party. As I have heard others call John a republicrat. No John will not have the support he needs to defeat a democrtic challenger. The Americaqn people appear to be tired of the rpublican rule and seem to be looking for a change. I believe that will sway the moderates enough to vote democrat in this next presidential election. view post

Like I said as long as Hilary isnt elected Im A Okay with a democrat such as Al Gore. Still going for McCain though. view post

Well it looks like the stage is being set for an Obama presidential bid. He is doing all the right things to build overwhelming support within the Democratic hierarcy. He also has the imagination of the American people. Why? because all people hear about him is how smart he is but not too many people know what exactly he believes or what direction he wants to see the country go in. Right now I predict Barak Obama in '08. view post

from the bit i just read about him, that obama dude looks like a good choice. of course, that means he doesn;t stand a chance.


at any rate, i don;t envy your choices. we have a mayoral election next month and our main candidates are not so great. the last election we had a transvestite run.. she got a lot of votes.. now she's a columnist. i wonder what other crazy people will run this year. view post

Obama is my U.S. senator for Illinois. I voted for the other guy rather than Obama. What bothers me about Obama is how everyone he competed against was defeated by the political machine or the media. I still do not know what exactly he believes because he can be very evasive. He also makes statements that could be taken either way. I do not know enough about him its just that the elite like him too much. view post

I just trying to read through the numberous Ballot Measures that are on my ballot. My state does print out an &quot;information&quot; pamplet. It is non-paritsan with the legal language of the measure and a &quot;real folk&quot; explanation. It also includes the various lobby groups that are pushing for the ballot measure to list their opinions. This is helpful because then I can see who will benefit from the measure in addition to what the measure is really about.

As for the candidates on my ballot next month.....I don't have a clue. Our governor is up and he just might get outed if the political machine of the other major party can swing the &quot;too much taxes&quot; vote. On the other hand, the gas prices are dropping, the interest rates have stayed low and so people are not feeling the &quot;gloom and doom&quot; economic crunch.

As for &quot;colorful&quot; candidates, I was going out with some friends this summer and we were going to hit a &quot;alternative&quot; strip club. When we got there, an &quot;adult entertainment star&quot; who was running for some election in her home state was the featured dancer. The club wanted to charge us $25 to get in ....at 1:30 am. Needless to say, the desire to support &quot;free speech&quot; by paying the high cover charge outweighed my budget for the evening, so we all agreed to go back to the hotel room and drink there. I guess it illustrated some creative campaign fund raising though!!!! view post
