Your Ideal Presidential Candidate

Check out the 2008 SelectSmart.com Presidential Candidate Selector. The site asks voters a series of questions and then determines which candidate most reflects the voter's viewpoints. Below are my results:

1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%)
2. Barack Obama (73%)
3. Al Gore (65%)
4. Ron Paul (63%)
5. Bill Richardson (60%)
6. John Edwards (59%)
7. Dennis Kucinich (58%)
8. Wesley Clark (58%)
9. Hillary Clinton (56%)
10. Joseph Biden (52%)
11. Christopher Dodd (51%)
12. Kent McManigal (50%)
13. Elaine Brown (42%)
14. John McCain (32%)
15. Rudolph Giuliani (32%)
16. Mike Huckabee (31%)
17. Mitt Romney (30%)
18. Mike Gravel (29%)
19. Tom Tancredo (29%)
20. Chuck Hagel (29%)
21. Sam Brownback (28%)
22. Tommy Thompson (27%)
23. Newt Gingrich (25%)
24. Jim Gilmore (23%)
25. Fred Thompson (23%)

plez sez: i was just minding my own business when i stumbled across this list of presidential candidates on another blog (hat tip: Booker Rising). i consider myself to be just slightly left of center politically, so i was anxious to see the results of my survey.

it just so happens that i RSVP'd for the Barack Obama Rally that will be held tomorrow morning on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. even though i haven't sent his campaign a donation yet, i'm pleased that i'm supporting him and this survey goes quite a ways to validating my selection of Senator Obama as my guy for 2008!

Run Obama Run!
