2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

I found this quiz sort of indirectly over at The Opiate of the Masses. I am okay with my results...Barack O. is cool...John Edwards, yeah, he's pretty cool too...I don't know anything about Chris Dodd that comes to mind. Hillary is my girl, mm-hm.

Hilary Clinton matched me 91% as did Barack Obama. Interesting! :)

AlienCG said...

Clinton was at the top with only 84%. The overall spread was pretty narrow which just proves that I am a neutral party in the elections.

You people will probably hate me for this, but Mitt Romney was on top with 65% followed by Fred at 64%

Hilary and BA Baracus were 2nd and 3rd to last only behind the kook Dennis.

Sorry about that, but I have no intention of voting for any of these clowns...I am waiting for the return of the antiChrist to straighten everything out!!! I am evil!

Personally, I'm a Marxist, but more Groucho than Karl.

I think Dennis Kucinich's base shrunk a lot when those "Heaven's Gate" flying saucer cultists committed suicide.

dmarks said...

...and I just did the poll again. Sure enough, they classified me as a McCainiac again.

Dizzy Dennis is dead last. Hillary is in the middle. The last time I did one of these, Hillary was last.

I had problems with some of the questions. The abortion one only had the two extremes, and I think that most Americans are in neither camp.

I've already cast my first vote at the caucuses. It's weird to think we have almost a year to go.

Hillary: Interesting in a good or bad way?

Evil-E: Hate you? Never. I love my more right leaning and evil brethren!

DiDC: I should probably be lots more like Harpo.

Dmarks: You have a point about the questions. While the candidates may have black or white opinions, they are certainly careful not to express themselves in that manner. It is all about the grey areas in politics.

Churlita: We have our primaries on Feb. 5. It is a very long process, this election business.

Barack Obama was top of my list at 90% ... i like him, but i'm still waiting to commit to his campaign until i watch a few more debates.

laura b. said...

MiniJonB: I am trying hard to actually listen to what the candidates are saying as well as what is coming out of their mouths, but I get sort of emotional and forget to not get caught up in their rhetoric.

MrManuel said...

Ha, I got Bill Richardson and he dropped out already!

I was close with Hilary though and a little less with Obama.
