Alright folks, let’s do it. It’s time for the Beauty & Depravity’s Presidential caucus. The election process is moving to the State of Washington this weekend. While the results WILL matter this weekend, the Democratic nomination is going to be long time coming.
But I’d love to hear from you about who you’re leaning towards/supporting and why? Don’t be shy about commenting. Let’s try to have a healthy and engaging dialogue here. It doesn’t matter if you’re from the States or not. Please share:
Your current residence [state or country].
Couple reasons why you’re voting or supporting a particular candidate for president. Please don’t mention something fluffy like “hope.” What are some of the bigger issues you’re wrestling through?
Feel free to post anonymously if you feel inclined. We’ll tally up the votes by the end of next week and I’m certain that the winner of this blog’s caucus will ultimately be elected.
From the get go, I’ve had my sight on three candidates: Clinton, McCain, and Obama. I am still undecided how I’ll cast my vote this weekend but here’s some random thoughts I have of some of the remaining candidates:
John McCain | If it was any other election, I think he may have a legitimate chance but apparently, this is the election of “change.” Hope he doesn’t change his stance on immigration to appease the “conservatives.”
Huckabee | I may be guilty of name-ism but asides from his name, he’s surprised many including me. Surprised he’s still here.
Ron Paul | Do you vote for him for principle sake even if you know he has absolutely no chance? I don’t agree with him on several fronts but he’s been the most honest and forthright conversationalist in my opinion.
Mitt Romney | Just once – I want to see his hair not perfect.
Hilary Clinton | Keep her husband from being in the spotlight. Ask Bill to do what he does best – raise money. I’ve been more and more impressed with her as weeks go by.
Barack Obama | I want to like him so much but I was growing tired of the “yes we can” and “hope” political rhetoric. Finally beginning to hear substance about his vision and platform as he and Clinton go at it in recent weeks…
