Who Do You Love?

I found this little quiz over on James' blog, Right Face, and thought I'd take the test to see where I stand. I honestly think of myself as being very middle of the road, although I have considered myself a Hillary supporter since she was First Lady. Initially, I was a bit shocked by the results of the quiz, but when I thought about it, I realized it makes perfect sense. Ms. Clinton is not the raging liberal the Right makes her out to be. And as much as I want to like Obama there's just something there that makes feel I can't trust him. And don't get me started on Edwards. Lord. He makes my skin crawl and beside him, Bill Clinton looks like a Boy Scout to me. Edwards I totally do not trust. He's too smiley and his aww-shucks, cornponiness just rubs me the wrong way.

I do like John McCain and was surprised to see I don't line up more with his beliefs. I tend to be a bit hawkish on military issues, but I knew we didn't line up on Iraq (I say clean up our mess as much and as quickly as we can, then get out.), but still I thought I'd be a closer match.

So, there you go. Take the test and see where you fall.

85% Hillary Clinton
85% Chris Dodd
85% Barack Obama
83% John Edwards
75% Bill Richardson
70% Joe Biden
68% Dennis Kucinich
66% Mike Gravel
61% Rudy Giuliani
51% John McCain
42% Mike Huckabee
41% Mitt Romney
35% Tom Tancredo
29% Fred Thompson
26% Ron Paul

thanks for the link. I've been meaning to do one of these things.

I did one of these before the debate, and I was 95% match with Kucinich and 68% each with Clinton and Obama, if I remember correctly. I'm able to overlook Clinton's relative conservatism, I suppose because she and I match up on some of the issues I feel most strongly about. I think every voter should take one of these, so we can break out of the cult of likeability a little bit. We see where that got us..

Politics on your birthday?! I hope you took time out from cleaning to celebrate. Happy birthday!

My Dem choices are the opposite of yours, or a bit sideways.

Welcome to the Georgia on My Mind blogroll!

So much fun! Although I *am* a Canadian ...

My results were a bit more polarized, in that I got 88% for Kucinich (I'm such an idealist!) and, um 4% for Fred Thompson (stick to Law and Order, pal!)

Perhaps that's my pot-promoting, universal-health-care-providing, diplomacy-using, immigrant-welcoming Canuck bias.

(Har har. Being a little silly ...)
