Which '08 canidates are your favorites? Which ones have you ruled out already? And which ones are you in favor of? As in, which ones have you NOT ruled out?

I'd like to say who I rule out right now and why and who I might consider. But won't. If I tell you. Someone will think I'm racist and this horrid person. As has been said before on another board. Race,sex or whether they are democrat or republican will not be a deciding factor when I vote. I am not registered with one party or another. I've been watching the news and the ones running for president. What things they say they will do or not do once in office. Some of them in my oppinion have no clue how to properly run our country. That is based on what they talk about when I see the candidates on the news. When it comes to the election. I'll weigh out what good things I like they will do and let my religious beliefs also play a part in the vote also. I do have idea's in my head who might make a good president. But really haven't 100% made up my mind who I'll vote for.

Ok you asked for it. Definately not Obama. He's to young and seems to wild of a person to run the country. Definately not Hilary Clinton either. I never liked her dh Bill Clinton as president. He was the one who I felt screwed up health care for us. Making insurance rates go through the roof. She don't appear she'd be any better just from what I hear of her on the news. I'm leaning towards Tommy Thomson. I felt he was a good governor for Wisconsin. I think he could probably run our country just fine.

I'm a Poli Sci major as well!! I am definately pulling for Fred Thompson. As far as the main contenders for the Republican party, McCain, Rudy, Mitt....I just disagree with too many of their policies and beliefs to really be behind them. I think Thompson has the potential to be the next Ronald Reagan.

I'll come out and say I'm definitely not voting for Hilary, and probably not voting for Obama either. I like how he presents himself, but I don't agree with a lot of his beliefs and also think he could use a bit more experience. I'm torn on Rudy, I think he's a great leader and will do well for national security but am not sure about where he stands on some other issues. I really like Fred Thompson, and I want to know more from Mitt Romney before I make up my mind.

I'm leaning towards Mitt Romney and away from Clinton or Obama. I still need to learn more about all the canidates though.

I actually was once opposed to Hillary but now I think I like her better than Obama. I don’t think I have made up my mind. I would not vote Republican at this point just based on fear alone lol But there are some who make me less ill than others.

I would love a third party!!

I'll admit, I'm a Republican, so for a Democrat to gain my vote, they'd have to be totally different than what most seem to stand for. So, in that respect, I'll likely vote Republican. I'm not sure yet who I would vote for, I haven't researched enough. However, if Fred Thompson were to run, I'd give him serious consideration.

Ron Paul. Seriously, don't pay too much attention to what mainstream media says about him. I don't trust the media one bit when it comes to politics. They can't make a decision for me, and that is what they try to do.

There are a few I'm considering, but with each of them I have differences on a few key issues. So I have to figure out what I'm most willing to sacrifice.

John McCain is my favorite right now, 100%. I think he's got the right combination of experience and willingness to go outside the "norm" in politics. He also has a terrific record of bipartisanship, and I agree with him on almost every issue.

But depending upon the coming months I'd consider Barack Obama or Mike Huckabee. Both of them are extremely personable and not in a slick way, but I disagree vehemently on some key issues for each (for Obama, the war; for Huckabee, abortion and gay marriage).
