It doesn't seem like a day goes by without some amount of politicking. Most folks in my circle are on the Hillary/Obama wagon. I don't see myself aligned with any party particularly but in this day and age of our beautiful two party BS system we always seem to be voting for the best of the worst. I feel sorry for whoever inherits GW's mess, but that's another conversation.
A few weeks ago I went on the search for an online candidate picker, one that actually really told you where the candidates stand on the issues. Oddly enough, one of the best ones I found was actually www.ontheissues.org . Not only does it give you five stances on each issue but it will educate you on what the issues really pertain to.
At the time I was torn between the Hillary/Obama decsion. After sifting through the online questions I was surprised to see my number one candidate was Kucinich. But even though he was the candidate that I saw most eye to eye with it was less than 60%. Next I think it was Gravel, then Mckinney (green party) with Hillary, Edwards and Obama. Obama's policy agreed with me less than 50% of the time. Hillary, a little better. I here people say they don't trust Hillary, but do you really know enough about any of them to really trust one over the other. Throw out the personality conflict and think about where these folks stand on policy and make a decsion. What's important to you? Take the quiz, you might be surprised by the result. I was.
