This is voting on a cult of personality, not ideology. Sorry no can do.

Cliff,

You  had me at the title and then I came in and saw the choices.

First off, I am proud to say I am none of the examples, and lean towards none of them, as I don't know anything about any of them; outside their very wealthy and polished staff reports and PR releases.  Cliff, you have to be kidding to think that I would fall for this survey.  ;D

As for myself, I have been called both liberal, and conservative, it all depends on the person doing the judging, and the issue we are talking about.

I would probably stand with Lincoln, and Eisenhower, and end up being called a "Centrist".

I prefer independent thought, and fiscal responsibility.  I want to be involved in my neighborhood, (except for those assholes across the street that don't respect anyone, or themselves, and their kids are delinquints in the making).  I want to support welfare for those that really need it, ( haven't seen but about three of them in the last 50 years).

You see Cliff, there is no way I can relate to the list you have given, due to the fact that there is not one person on the list I would want to emulate.  

Sorry.

IN Love.
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

Now, who was this Eisenhower fella?   ;D  Well Tim if you can't choose between one, I say flip a coin.  Me, I'm a toss-up between Maggie and B' Liar.  I flipped the coin and it said I was a Gordon Brown.   Damn!  So I pissed on the coin.  Down with Brown.  Lucky for him though, I can't vote.

My bad....I thought we were voting on the cutest Backstreet Boy. Now that Kevin has quit the group I don't know what to do.

Here in America we don't like to mix our politics with voting.

A vote for Bush? Ok Jake, come out and say something.

I think I drink like a Kennedy, Fuck like Clinton (Ya, I wish) and fight like the pit bull Bush. No Kerry traits in me at all and Iím not an ass wipe puppet like Powell. (Whom I use to respect and would have voted for president)

Registered independent here.  I look at the person ('s philosophies) rather than their party affiliation.

One problem with some (not all) Democratic candidates is they are rather 'soft' on crime. 

In local elections I tend a bit more towards Republican candidates because Democrats seem to favor increasing taxes...property taxes speciificially.  I am tired of having to pay for and subsidize County services which I've never used and never will (eg. schools.)  I think there should be a differential so that people with one, three, five, kids in schools pay a higher property tax than someone such as myself who has no children.

I'm not anti-tax...but I think taxes since they're mandatory...should go only for necessary items and not 'nice to have' stuff that isn't truly needed.  Let those things be funded by those that use them.
