Who’s your candidate for President?

On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, the biggest news story of the year in the U.S. is about to hit full force. Will we have the first Mormon, Black, Italian or female President? Will John McCain or John Edwards fare better this time around? Will one of the lesser known candidates surprise the world tomorrow? No one can say for sure, but it’ll certainly be exciting to watch.

I came across an interesting link from WQAD that ranks all the candidates based on your stances on major issues. Simply answer the eleven questions and you’ll see your results (note: the system will also include candidates that are no longer running). You can visit it at http://www.wqad.com/Global/link.asp?L=259460.

    Thanks Ray – This is a great tool. Although I don’t fully agree with the result, it did help confirm my top choice. I disagreed with the result because it did not weigh the importance of questions relative to each other with sufficient granularity. For example, I disagreed with all of the choices on Iraq (my most important issue), but think that Healthcare is more important than Gun control (both of which were rated next most important).

    Happy New year to you and your family!

    Above was the first comment I have posted in Plaxo… Where in HELL did that picture come from??? I don’t look like what I see, or like what I see, and hope that no one else sees it. (Looks like a closeup of Boy George to me)
