Me too, even though I'm a repub. She's the only electable candidate who won't turn the country completely socialist. The rest will tax us right into a depression.

I don't think any of the repubs are electable and I'm not wasting my vote.

I'll gladly waste my vote before supporting that war-mongering crack-whore (I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course). I'm not too crazy about Hillary either.

The thinking electorate is definitely caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Neither party has the wherewithal to defy their respective extremists.

The results of which will be once again be candidates foisted upon the voter more for their appeasement of said extremists than their inherent abilities.

A percentage of the electorate will opt for their party's candidate, by rote. The balance are forced to select the lesser of two evils, as it were.

Not at all what the Founding Fathers envisioned, in my opinion.

I am sure many of you would find this odd, but I have never been a big fan of HRC. I continue to hope Gore enters the race, as I think he is electable, having already won one presidential election. But once Hillary is nominated, if Ron Paul runs third party, I am seriously considering a vote for him unless I think voting for him would elect a Republican ala Nader, the slime rat fuck.

I agree with Dave, I think he nailed it.

Honestly I don't like any of them.

Astonishly, that leaves Ron Paul out there to contemplate.

But if he wound up being another Nader, and voting for him reprised another caper that got some horrible Republican in, that option should surely be off the table.

What are you supposed to do, stay home and watcdh American Idol while drinking Diet Pepsi and eating Doritos?
