And if you’re so inclined: What Breed of Conservative Are You?
I also took a Select a Candidate quiz. It tells you the percentage of your agreement with all the candidates from both parties. I had some problems with some of the questions not having enough possible answers – forcing me to pick the ‘closest’ to my view. But that’s always the way it is with these quizzes.
I wasn’t too surprised with the results. I am in most agreement with Kucinich, but of the two issues we are in disagreement with, one is Iraq, which I think he (and those supporting him) consider pretty important. The other, which I won’t name, the only candidate who agrees with me is Mitt, though I ranked the issue as not very important.
Dodd’s next in line for me, and then there’s a three way tie between Edwards, Clinton, and Obama. I’ll probably look at Dodd a little more closely for the primary, but it is important to me that we Dems select someone who isn’t too weak against the GOP nominee. I know I’ve voted that way in the past 2 elections, but my candidate beat Bush in 2000, and the candidate I voted for in 2004 would have done better than Kerry, I am sure. I’m confident that I share enough views with E, C and O that I would be fine with any of their presidencies.
