Right now I'm leaning toward Obama. CLINTON - I don't trust her. I think her ambition is getting the job itself and doesn't go much beyond that. I think she's corrupt and will say or do whatever necessary to try and win. She doesn't appear to me to have any principles. To top it off, I don't want a quarter-century of one of the same two families in the White House. EDWARDS - Combination televangelist and snake-oil salesman. I've known people like this guy and wouldn't trust him further than I could throw a pickup truck. He's also engaged in class divisiveness, which I don't think is good for the country (and he's one of these rich guys he keeps complaining about). So that leaves me with Obama unless I want to consider GOP candidates. I've never voted GOP for national office. I "might" be willing to consider Guilani... ROMNEY - GOP version of Edwards. Slick. Vaciliates with the wind. Can't trust the guy. GUILIANI - Can do one thing the GOP desperately need to do in 2008, which is appeal to independent voters. Guiliani might be the only GOP candidate who can win the general election. MCCAIN - Tenative "no," although I haven't entirely ruled him out. HUCKABEE - No way I would ever vote for this guy. He's a religious nut and not what we need in the White House. Back to Obama - not much experience, but I don't think that's as big a deal as some. In this day and age particularly, Presidents do not act alone. They are surrounded by experts. The only thing that worries me about Obama are the experts he might pick. Also, to the extent Obama might go a little too far afield, remember that he may not be working with a cooperative Congress for his entire term. Right now the only people with approval ratings lower than Bush are the Dems in Congress who haven't done jack since they were elected and have been more or less led by the nose by the Bush administration. People aren't happy about it, although I don't know if they're unhappy enough to put the GOP back in. Supreme Court is the only thing that would overly concern me about Obama and a Dem congress. I like to see balance on the court, first of all, and secondly I like to see more moderate people there. I don't think the judiciary is typically a good place to make radical social change, so I wouldn't want to see people who are extremely left-wing take seats on the court. There's always a third party too I suppose. What about the rest of you?
