If your going to vote for him at least learn how to spell his name correctly. its Romney. I actually think with the large LDS base, and business leaders in Arizona, Romney will upset McCain in the Grand Canyon State.

Well how about Rudy Guiliani?

Former State Secretary Colin Powell would've made a great president but he never showed interest...

Gore would be a nice choice but he seems too paranoid on global warming.

I'm for Hillary and I'll tell you why....

While she has to be very masculine in her duties because she is going against all men, it would be very interesting from a sociological point of view to see how a woman would approach the White House, wars, the economy, etc. I want to see us with a woman president, and I think if my generation gets out and votes, we might actually see that. The problem is, we (20-30) are the lowest percentage of voters which is why we keep getting conservative right-wing presidents in most cases. Or at least in the last two elections. There is no doubt in my mind that Bush should not have been elected for the 2nd term. Things have gone down the toilet in this country and it's time for a fresh face in the White House and a new image for our country and I think a liberal woman president is just the trick. Not to stereotype, but women approach problems in life in a different manner than men, and I think Hillary could do us some good.

I used to care a lot about politics until Bush was elected for a second term. I just got so fed up with everything being wrong with the administration that I just didn't care anymore. We are in a war with no end in sight, yet the president claims victory, illegal immigration is out of control, gays and lesbians are not given the same rights as heterosexuals, and I could go on and on. I saw some excerpts of a republican debate when the issue of homosexuality was raised and I can't believe the answers from the republican contingency. They were so antiquated and morally wrong.

Hillary 2008!

Clinton? She's a snake. As corrupt as they come. I wouldn't trust her to clean the bathroom.

Romny? Blah. Flipflops on his issues, and won't admit it. I don't mind people changing their minds, but say so.

Obama? Inexperienced. A posterchild for affirmative action.

McCain? Too old, and no convictions.

Edwards? A fu&%ing lawyer. No way.

Huckabee? A baptist loon who doesn't believe in evolution. Wonderful...

Here's a good summary page.

I guess the least harmless of the lot would be Romney.

I wish Guliani had made a better showing - at least he has proven leadership abilities and a track record of tackling impossible odds. But it looks like his campaign is sinking fast.

I have to third or fourth or whatever say that there is truly not anyone running who does anything for me. I can think of more reasons why none of them should be elected President than I can they should.

We will be coming up on some big crossroads in a few years and I just don't see the person in that line up that inspires me to vote for them because they are up to the challenges. I'm becoming more sad every day. I'm fortunate enough to be in a position where I can get by on next to nothing for income for quite some time and I have a feeling it may come to that.

With that combination I would pick an Obama landslide in November. Senator McCain has repeatedly even this last week that he real doesn't understand the world of economics, and somehow I have to believe November will be about the economy and not terrorism, and McCain has numerous skeletons in his past and his stance on immigration (which I thought was correct) will be hard for him to overcome.

If she becomes the president in November, she will enter a world that has been 100% man dominated for more than two centuries and I think it will be very interesting to see what will happen then. I believe that she are able to do the job. Just as UAL747 says it's very interesting to see, from a sociological point of view, how she will be treated and how she will act as the first woman president of the United States.

Nobody and I mean NOBODY would send the right wing into a tizzy more than President Hillary. For that reason alone she has my vote in Nov. If she were proclaimed High Queen of the Universe I would laugh my nutz off just to see social conservatives have coronaries right and left.

I'll be an election judge for the first time this year, so I had to vote absentee and when the time came I honestly couldn't decide so I flipped a coin: Obama vs Edwards and Obama won. Obama vs HRH HRC and Hillary won. So I voted Clinton in the Missouri primary. First time I had to resort to such tactics but having weighed all the pros and cons of those 3, I didn't really care passionately one way or the other.

Whomever gets the Dem nomination has my vote in November, but I could certainly live with John McCain, a man who not only served his country, but suffered for it as well. He's basically a RINO anyway.
