Vote for who - Presidencial Debate



Please, I have to know, and I realize you could possibly change your mind by next year.

After watching the Presidencial Debates, who do you feel you'll be voting for next year for President of the United States?!

Why?

I haven't watched either "debate". So I have no perspective on these "debates".

It is much too early for me to be making that decision. I know a few I won't vote for, but who I will vote for is still up in the air.

I don't like to make a firm decision this far in advance of the election. Too many things can happen between now and then......

Same with me. Plus there is a long time still for all the skeltons to come out of the closet.

Gore/Obama '08
I have not watched either set of debates. I have better things to do with my time. I sure the fuck ain't voting for any Repug in the race. [keeping an eye on Hagel on that side]

Not in love with the Dems either. I have Major Issues with Hillary and Barack is awfully green. We'll see what happens with Richardson.

Truth is, I'm still waiting for Al.

Re: Gore/Obama '08
I'm with you. Gore/* '08 as far as I'm concerned. I'm getting to like Edwards even more, but if it isn't Gore, I think we're going to be stuck with Hillary on the Dem side.

I would support Hillary if she got the nomination, though.

I can't say for sure yet. But i know i'm not vorting for Hillary, and i'm not voting for McCain.

McCain is way too much of a Hawk for my comfort, and there's something about Hillary that i just don't like.

McCain's my man!!
I am standing by the senator from AZ. I've been a fan of his since before 04. My primary reason for voting for him instead of the others is b/c of the following quote by Sam Rayburn, who was the Dem Speaker of the House for about 17 years, off and on through the administrations of FDR, Truman, and Eisenhower. When a freshman House member said he did not want to vote a certain way on a bill b/c it would upset some of his constituents, Rayburn replied:

"Son, if you can't take their money, drink their liquor, screw their women, and then vote against them, you don't belong in this business."

Bottom line, talk is cheap. When it comes to running for president, they all are very good at making promises, giving good speeches, and telling people what they want to hear. But how can they keep a promise to everyone? They can't.

The only surefire way to judge how a candidate is going to act is to look at how they have acted before.
All of the other serious candidates do not have extensive records, especially on the national field.

McCain has 20 years in Congress, and despite what people one both sides would have you believe, he's remained consistent on most of the issues. He's come under fire for wanting to compromise on issues such as campaign finance, taxes, and the torture of prisoners, but is not a little compromise a good thing?

I used to like him too, but...
Compromise on the torture of prisoners is not acceptable under any circumstances, and especially not by a former POW who was himself tortured. That is hypocrisy of the worse sort.

It's too early to use any of the debates to make a decision. What I like about these debates is it gives you chance to see how much of a shift some of these candidates do from what they talk about in the first debate to what they talk about in later debates. It's also good fodder for the pundits of either side.

If you had to twist my arm, the safest candidate for me is Bill Richardson. My heart is with Obama but I have to wait and see if the Bobby Kennedy aura is going to fade or not.

Right now my dollars, my vote, my active efforts are in Barak Obamas campaign.

I cannot and will not vote Republican even if Obama does not get the Democratic nomination.

I will not continue to support the rape and pillage of our freedoms, of our constitutional rights, I will not condone torture, I will not condone lies, secrecy, pandering to the extreme conservative Christian rhetoric.

But mostly, I am appalled at the way they treat our armed forces and our retired military. Bush & Co say they love our country and our troops and yet my father, a career military man cannot get the care he needs or the retirement he is entitled to because Bush & Co have cut his benefits 4 times, reduced them to nothing. My mother will not even get a widow's pension. This is not what he signed up for when he volunteered his lifetime of service to the US Navy in 1954.

And no. Democrats are not going to remove the amendment that gives you the right to bear arms.

Just got around to reading all this. I'm not sure where the "I'm voting Dem and you're not changing my mind" came from, since there really wasn't much... well, anything new in any of these posts.

My take? Neither debate did anything except for waste time. The Dems were campaigning against Bush (who, FYI, isn't their opponent!), and the Reps were a bunch of pretenders and misfits who don't deserve the presidency.

In fact, there's not a single person from either party who participated in this first set of debates that deserves the nomination. They're all useless, from the Democrats who are completely disconnected from reality to the Republicans who are spineless little worms who don't want to offend anyone. I've still got a wishlist of people I'd like to run, but I'm not holding my breath.
