Poll question: Veepstakes survivor Final !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
****IMPORTANT: A VOTE IS FOR WHO YOU WANT AS VP LEAST, NOT MOST******
We'll start off with ten, and vote someone off of who DU wants least. I'll start a new poll either every 1 day or 100 votes, or when a candidate is mathimatically garenteed to get the most votes before 100 votes are cast. Whichever comes first.


Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

Been a long day, I guess.

we'll all be at the polls going, "So you want me to vote for the person I DO want, right? Or am I voting somebody off?"

As I said from the start Clark will be the final survivor. Nothing new here.

13. Yes, but...
In the actual Survivor show the final vote is who you want to *win*.

Anyway, I assumed you wanted me to vote the last guy off the island, so goodbye Johnny Fairplay. Really, either one will be fine, but Clark would give us a better shot. So, pragmatically speaking, it's as clear a choice as Rupert.

Survivor and banded together to vote him off earlier.

33. It's almost toss up for me between these two, for different reasons.
Edited on Wed May-26-04 11:46 AM by mzmolly
But Edwards gets my nod here. I prefer him to Clark for various reasons.

Clark would be good in a Sec of Defense role.

37. Sec. of State, not Defense...
I'll just respond for the many Clark supporters who always respond to these. Clark hasn't been out of the military for more then 10 years. He doesn't qualify for the Sec. of Defense, but he could be Sec. of State like Colin Powell or National Sec. Advisor.

and so did quite a few others. I hate these trick polls...where you are required to READ the question...which I did not do!

Damn, I'm going to make my man Wes lose!

I demand a revote. This is not fair!

Now I know how the Palm Beach voters felt!

Damn!

42. I voted wrong too, for Edwards instead of against Wes
so we even out. *l*

But see on the real show Survivor, the LAST vote is for the one you WANT to win. So like, you I was too excited to actually read the instructions and just forged ahead. *l*

43. It's the usual Edwards supporter poll - so - never. It'll quietly vanish
I seem to remember an Edwards supporter who had in his signature a pic of Clark - crossed - and marked "Dropped out" right until the day his guy did. Then the signatiure changed. It's what they do. That guy BTW is no longer on DU - like all of them who were visiting us temporarily.

46. This is started by a Graham supporter...
Very confusing comment. The guy who started this thing is a Graham supporter and not an Edwards supporter.

I'm sure he will make the final post and give Edwards the 'x' that you want. But as I noted when he first posted this 'race' that Clark would win. He mentioned that the last 4 choices would be more interesting then the final outcome.

We should stop doing these silly DU polls. They are all the same. The only Veepstakes vote that matters is John Kerry's.

and only occasionally mentions Graham for VO - "but Edwards would be OK".

48. Give me a break
You really think Edwards is the top contender for Kerry's vote? Why, because the media say so? When did they last get it right?

Cheney? Lieberman? Kemp? Gore? Bush I?

Nope.

The way the media push Edwards is probably the biggest indication he hasn't got a prayer.

51. Kerry in fact said that Edwards doesn't have enough experience..
to be V.P. If he selects him it will be solely because of political pressure and Edwards supporters withholding their money unless Kerry concedes.

But that is the informed opinion of most Democrats, pundits, most people watching.

except at DU.

Kerry will choose wisely.
