1. me too, in reality.
By the time TX votes (March 9), it's not going to matter whom I like. ABB, all the way!

That's what you should do on voting day.

Now stop reading DU and go write your book! :hi:

3. So am I, but Kerry was next on the list
for me and it looks like he might be the dem nominee, so I am supporting him. I actually knew this before I took the test. Kucinich is great, but there is that unfortunate "electability" factor. Too bad - he's the only one that I really believe is truly committed to liberal causes.

10. JohnKleeb, you crack me up
Edited on Sun Feb-08-04 08:23 PM by KCDem
We talked about you in our hungover states at the KCDem/TXLib household today (along with DarthVelma and GOPisEvil.... I remarked how similar you look to Kucinich.) Hm, when did you switch? :hi:

on edit: closed the parentheses.

18. Predictably...
...I scored 100% Kucinich. Surprisingly, my real-world #2 choice, Wesley Clark, turned up as my #5 on the presidentmatch.com poll.

And I just want to add, to the folks on this thread who turned up in line with Dennis on the quiz but are voting for someone else (OK, Kerry) because he's likely to win: NO KIDDING Kerry's likely to win the nomination! That's why he doesn't need your vote! If your beliefs are in line with Kucinich's, vote for him to give him a stronger voice at the convention and to help give progressives like us a stronger voice in this party! :think:

21. It would be interesting to see how it pans out
for all DU'ers. I sometimes think when it comes down to the issues, most people aren't entirely clear where their candidate stands and therefore choose someone who is not entirely on board with their own political agenda.

I suspect there would be a lot more Kerry supporters if people were matched according to all the issues and not just their pet talking points.

22. Sharpton actually came out first for me, with Kucinich second..
but looking at the overall picture, I still think Kucinich is the best fit.
