    Since I was not posting here when the primary elections were in their early stages...

    Just looking to see who everyone's original candidate was...

    Personally, I was a Fred Thompson guy. Knew he never really stood a chance, but liked his views more than most anyone out there on the Republican side.

    I think seeing who people gravitated towards in the first place, tells a little more about the person, than who they are supporting out of the 2 candidates left

    Thompson. He makes the current two look like imbeciles. I know for fact that a great number of dems are unhappy with their nom.

    Edwards...

    But that's just I like a man that knows how to impress the female voters.

    Ron Paul first, Thompson second.

    Thompson kind of pissed me off though because it looked like he made such a half assed effort.

    Denny (the menace) K.

    Glad I wasn't a hardcore Edwards guy. Still woulda been better than Clinton though.

    That is what got me too with Thompson... should have gotten in much sooner and should have been much more enthusiastic about it...

    I was never and will never be a Ron "Dr. No" Paul guy... the guy truly scares me about as much as some of his conspiracy theorist followers do (not that all of his followers are conspiracy theorists... but he attracted an abnormal amount of them)

    He didn't impress me. Way too goofy looking and phony.
