Who will be the next President?

Recommended Posts

I voted for who I thought would WIN the election, but not necessarily who I will vote for... I wonder if the poll would be different if we asked "who are you planning to vote for this fall?"

I was just thinking the same thing!

honestly, the fact that Obama doesn't have as much "experience" is refreshing to me. hell, look where "experience" has got us thus far. having been in politics for your whole life isn't necessarily an appealing thing to me - it just means you've got too many ties, and too many obligations.

 

and that's one nice thing about this country, technically, those people on that list DO have a chance to win! i realize it's not realistic, but at least they're getting out there and giving it their best! (I actually didn't even look at who was on the list!)

 

ok, off to the gym ... I can't wait to see how this takes off!

Amen to that! China owns our asses right now....even though it may not make the nightly news. Can you imagine the outcome if they stop "playing nice"?

Oh and Erica, your election was yesterday, so I assume you mean you didn't vote yesterday. I hope you will register and vote in the general election now.
yes.. i will be voting in the election i was so upset, i thought i was registered and i was not...and it was too late but i am def voting....

there is something about the way he speaks has my attention,i feel he is speaking right to us when he speaks, there is a lot of times when politics come up i do not understand a lot one beacuse i never paid attention he woke me up....so i thank him for that but i will have to see when it is time to vote who i will choose...

Umm...I was just thinking something along that line too. Here I sit in my pj's, getting ready to go to bed. Not the gym. Too funny.

Speaking of having 'experience'...what was the name of that movie with the comedian (Robin Williams,I think) becomes President by mistakehuh.gif I saw it a while back, very funny satire about politics.

I'm not sure who will win, but I am supporting Obama this year.

 

I like Hillary Clinton. I read her autobiography and came away feeling impressed with her toughness (in a good way) and her commitment to womenâ€s and childrenâ€s issues. Sheâ€s smart and savvy and her very detailed proposals display her impressive grasp on policy issues.

 

However, Iâ€m looking for more in a president than great policy positions. Iâ€m unconvinced that Hillary can really move America forward. It sounds like an Obama-sponsored talking point, but I am really ready for a change.

 

I think Obama is bold, honest, real, inspiring, visionary, fresh, and (I hope) transformative. People are aching for that kind of leader. He can bring people together to solve the real problems that we face: ending the war, getting off of oil dependency, and investing in health care and education. He inspires hope in young people and independents, and even some of my die-hard Republican friends would consider voting for him. Would they vote for Hillary? No way. Especially not against John McCain.

 

For me, itâ€s a little bit of a gut feeling (I canâ€t help but feel hopeful deep down when I hear him give a speech) and a little bit pragmatic (I think he has a better shot at beating McCain).

I'm right with you Sarah...night-shifters unite! ROFL!

BTW kudos to everyone who has spoken their opinions here, whether popular or not.

Janet, well said. Even if I didn't agree with you (and I pretty much do) I would have to say that was well said. You live in political central, the belly of the beast, so to speak. May the force be with you, you couldn't escape politics if you tried!! LOL
