US Presidential Candidates

Who would I choose?

Based on: http://www.selectsmart.com/president/2008.html – a decent survey of issues (mainly US ones, but still)

1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100 %) (she’s even an atheist!)

2. Dennis Kucinich (89 %)

3. Barack Obama (85 %)

4. Alan Augustson (campaign suspended) (82 %)

5. Joseph Biden (80 %)

6. Hillary Clinton (77 %)

7. Christopher Dodd (75 %)

8. Wesley Clark (not announced) (75 %)

9. John Edwards (72 %)

10. Al Gore (not announced) (71 %)

11. Michael Bloomberg (not announced) (69 %)

12. Mike Gravel (66 %)

13. Bill Richardson (60 %)

14. Elaine Brown (48 %)

15. Ron Paul (44 %)

16. Kent McManigal (campaign suspended) (38 %)

17. Rudolph Giuliani (30 %)

18. Mike Huckabee (28 %)

19. John McCain (24 %)

20. Tommy Thompson (21 %)

21. Mitt Romney (17 %)

22. Chuck Hagel (not announced) (17 %)

23. Sam Brownback (14 %)

24. Newt Gingrich (not announced) (12 %)

25. Tom Tancredo (9 %)

26. Fred Thompson (not announced) (9 %)

27. Duncan Hunter (7 %)

28. Jim Gilmore (withdrawn) (5 %)

After you finish the survey you can look through a comparison chart of the candidates. I have to agree with it, Kucinich is my favourite, Obama’s against gay marriage (not civil unions though) and has a few other slip but is overall decent. So let’s see the Democrats, and then all Americans elect Kucinich for 2008.
