Presidential Straw Poll

Greetings Everyone! It's been a long time since I posted anything politically meaningful. I decided to create a Presidential Straw Poll to get a grasp of the most popular candidates for the presidency in 2008. Feel free to pick as many candidates as you please. I'll post the results in a few weeks.

Don't forget to comment on your pick(s) in this diary. Not only are your comments appreciated, but I'm actually curious to know what everyone thinks. Have fun with this and we'll soon know who are the favorites for 2008.

One last thing, please spread the word on Blabbermouth. I'm curious what the Blabbermouth community has to say.

Man, I had to choose several people on that one.

Al Gore seems to be re-energized with his focus back on what really matters to him. I can't wait to see The Inconvient Truth.

Russ Feingold is one of the few people in congress that hasn't swayed on what matters to him.

Barrack Obama would make a great Vice President and will eventually be ready to hold the oval office.

Lefty, you are a briliant mind, and would serve this country well.

And Axe would also serve this country with honor and respect.

Great idea Lefty! This should be intersting.

Id vote for Lefty, Axe, and BND. For the other section, Al Bundy.

I agree with Bignewsday's picks, except for Al Gore... he will not win it for the democrats unfortunately. I also cannot wait to see The Inconvenient Truth.

Call me a sucker for my fellow Virginians, but I'm rooting for Mark Warner (thus far).

I really haven't heard too much about the '08 platforms yet, but I've heard about Al Gore trying to get attention in the media.

He claims to be a "recovering politician". While I 100% support the idea of politicians recovering and becoming useful members of society, I'm skeptical of this guy even if he really means it.

Like BND, I'd say that Obama is too young to be anything more than VP just yet, but I think a run for the oval office is inevitable.

I really wish with all my heart that Newt Gingrich could run as the GOP candidate, but he's more Libertarian than Republican these days (at least 50% of the reason why I like him), plus he's got illegitimate children. Of course that has nothing to do with his prowess as a statesman, but the media war would slaughter him for it.

In the meantime, I'll keep an eye out for some fresh ideas and unique platforms. The Dem vs. GOP shit bores me to death.

I got news for you guys, Sunday morning, Gore said, and this is a quote: "I have no plans to be a candidate for president again,"

Ok, so that narrows down the list of candidates, Honestly, I don't he would have much of a chance if he decided to run again. I think, based on Polls I've seen and the circumstances particularly the war with Iraq, I think majority of Americans are looking for a fresh, new, upcoming candidate, much like Obama.

I think Ted Kennedy has a better chance of being nominated than Hilary (What do you guys think of Ted?). And that's just because of the platforms she talked or supported in the past, I'm voting against,not for.

Anyways, I can't wait to see "An Inconvenient Truth". Hopefully, it has as much impact on the American mainstream as "Fahrenheit 9/11" did.

Lefty Metalhead said...

Ralph, it's great to see you back! Haven't heard from you in such a long time. Post some stuff dude.

BigNewsDay said...

Ralph, I doubt that Ted Kennedy would ever run for President due to his history. The American public would be forced to revisit his famous car wreck in Chapaqutic.

I still think that Al Gore could win the Election, or at least have a huge impact onthe Party's platform. It's a shame he has taken his name out of the hat.

But welcome back Ralph.

BigNewsDay said...

What happened to the poll, Lefty? It says that it has been deleted.

Lefty Metalhead said...

I'm not sure what happened. Perhaps I deleted it by mistake. Anyway, Obama was far ahead. I'll probably change the poll tomorrow. It will likely be narrowed down.
