2008 elections today!
 
if the elections took place now who would you vote for. feel free to discuss your reasons why but more or less i'm intrigued by the viability of the announced/speculated canidates.

Dubya has probably ruined Republican chances to retain the presidency, but Hillary might be sufficiently polarizing to offset the damage if the Dems choose to put her on the ballot. Really, there are no dominant candidates for either party at this time, IMO.

Unfortunately, this only applies to the Americans!! For the rest of us, we need a 'Who Cares' response!! :)

You mean the entire world doesn't focus on the glamorous life in the old US of A? :)

Only from a negative perspective - how we're ruining world culture, how we aren't giving them enough, or giving them too much, or being too 'world involved' or too isolationist … or whatever.

Oohh Touchy! ;)

txa1265 January 21st, 2007 22:43

Naw - this type of speculation is always good for controversy, so I'll just stir it up a bit for the international crew so they don't feel left out ;)

Corwin January 21st, 2007 22:55

But, I want to be left out!! :biggrin:

Maylander January 22nd, 2007 09:53

I'm hoping for Hillary; too many men in suits in politics today. People in general are losing interest in politics, and even though getting a female president won't solve that over night, I personally think it would be refreshing.

titus January 22nd, 2007 12:35

He hilary?? no change of it, she would be the first female president from america, and besides who thinks about hilary thinks about Bill. Who thinks of Bill thinsk of Monica Lewinsky.
I want Arnold for President :D

Corwin January 22nd, 2007 13:54

He has as much chance as Monica!! :biggrin:

Minor 'not born in America' issues … ineligible.

As for Hilary - remember that she was responsible for some of the ideas behind the highly socialist stuff Bill tried to do in his first two years (when he had democratic controlled senate & house) - it has only been to further her own agenda that she has appeared to moderate.

That is a general thing I hate - I have watched the former governor of our state (Romney) try to appease the ultra-right wingnuts to gain favor … which makes me dislike him. Running based on what he has actually been doing here - very moderate stuff, really populist - would have been better for him and the country.

Corwin January 23rd, 2007 01:13

Hey, I just hate politicians; they're all the same!! :)

magerette January 23rd, 2007 02:32

That's right—not only that, most of them are lawyers as well. :)

I think it's time for the Mother Ship to land, myself.

I am not an American, but I would go for Obama for two reasons. First, I would like to see a democrat this time around. Democrats appear much closer to European politics than the Republicans. After the Bush flop, I believe the releation with Europe needs to be improved.

Also I would say Obama, primarily because he belongs to a minority. I believe that allows him to greater understand the rights of minorities. There's alot of intolerant crap going on over there which I feel should be below western society. I would say that Hillary Clinton is an alternative, but her opinion about computergames are not so nice.

Bartacus January 27th, 2007 12:47

Obama doesn't stand much chance imo. partly muslim and went on catholic schools what isn't really a good thing for conservative America. I think Hilary has the largest chance to be the next candidate for the democrats, but I'm not sure she'd win. The former major of NY is a republican but still someone from the city (so not to conservative). This makes him more acceptable for the midfield. I believe as I expressed on the Dot before, that about 80% of the people already know for whom they are gonna vote -> it's a fifty/fifty for the both parties and it's that previously mentioned midfield that needs to be convinced.

Still I voted for Hilary, also for the reasons Maylander already expressed

titus January 27th, 2007 14:29

what is hilarys opinion about computergames?

Pfandpirat January 27th, 2007 17:52

I think that Hillary has the biggest chance to win the election. She is somewhat popular and she´s female (first female president ever if she should win) and huge parts of the population are at least partially unhappy with the republicans and/or G.W. Bush.
People also tend to vote for a change after one party reigned for some time and this was the second successive presidency of a republican candidate.
