Edwards steps aside... Dangit, he was closest to my views without being a fanatic and totally unelectable. Now I'll have to figure out who is closest again. I guess Obama, but Clinton and Obama are pretty much identically bad for me. Obama gets on my nerves less.

McCain. As an independent, I really like him.

I used to like him(as someone who would clean up politics), but I don't like his war view and he has started to open up about his social views (which I really don't like).

Obama doesn't have the experience yet to be president IMO. Especially in a time of recession and of war.

I'm not sure I want someone with experience going to war. I'm really more of a peace type of person.

Recession Experience? What you really need is experience listening to others and consolidating opinions and views. None of the candidates(that I know of) are economists.

My problem right now, is that I don't really know anything about any of them. That said, I really dislike how they all seem to drop out of the race before we even get to vote(and we are an early state). I can just imagine how it feels to hold your primary in June or July. Geesh.

I was thinking the same! Must be boring to vote in March even. There was this candidate from the NH primary, Kunich or something... I heard his wife on the radio on the way to work one morning and I loved his immigration policy. Then he dropped out the next day.

I can't believe we are already down to 2 on each side.
