Moderators, if you think this thread is one too many, please merge it with one of the others instead of erasing it. I don't care about the thread - I just want the poll.

For this poll, I vote for Palin.

I don't really want any of them, but the only one I really, <i>really</i> wouldn't want is Palin.

Thank you for adding so much to the conversation

I'm and individualist, not a collectivist...so, I'm gonna have to go with Palin on this one. That and she likes her fire arms. Oh yeah...and she's smokin' hot

The thing I like about Palin is the thing I liked about Obama - she's new so I don't know much about her so there is a lot of potential. The more I find out about her, the worse she becomes...like Obama

I don't know who to pick out of this list

I pick Obama, but in an ideal society, none of these individuals would have a chance in hell of becoming president.

C'mon, Biden supporters! Where are you????

After all, he could very well end up "a heartbeat away from the Presidency"!

And he's so articulate...and clean!

I'm sure this poll will have to be updated in the next few weeks when Biden's thrown under the bus and Hilldog is added to the ticket.

If there was some way of perpetuating eternal gridlock on American politics, I would vote for it.

Its just those pesky midterm elections could be such a wild card allowing one party control over both branches.

You just made Jimmy sad.




I voted Obama.

Out of those four, easily McCain.


I wanted Romney to get the nomination(although he would've been creamed in the general election by Obama). But his performance at Saddleback and selecting Palin as his running mate makes me feel a lot better about McCain.

Looks like the ABB of 2008 is Anyone But Biden.

Another mindless talk radio talking point from the non-collectivist.

There are only a few things I know about Biden. He's a plagerizer, he's smarter than most people (and he's not afraid to say so) and he thinks Apu runs all 7-11's.

I think that's enough to put him at the bottom of this list.

While I hope McCain will do more with the Economy, I have to rank him above Obama, because I don't buy the "we'll change everything that is wrong with America', sounds like he's pandering to people who are in despair over the last 8 years. I just think it's mostly fluff.

My Rankings:

1. McCain
2. Obama
3. Palin
4. Biden

Where is the 'none of the above' option?

It's too bad we can't rank like that in the poll.

I would say:

1. Palin
2. Obama
3. Biden
4. McCain

It's really unfortunate that McCain is heading the (R) ticket, and like someone else said, that Obama and Palin can't be on the same ticket. I would put Palin at the top, however.

I believe I had rather have Palin. IMO, potentially less dangerous than McCain.

Yes, and yes.

I prefer Ron Paul over any of them. But I wanted to see what people thought, from among these 4 choices.

6 people actually picked Palin as their top choice for president. This is a woman we know almost nothing about and have only heard of in the last week. And 6 of you want to put her in one of the most powerful positions in the world. To head foreign policy at a time when good foreign policy is more critical than ever for the future of this country.

But libertarians are big on "None of the Above." I want my "None of the Avove."

I could support Palin's Environment and Energy policy and that's about it.
