2008 Candidates


Lately I've been trying to take a more active interest in politics. Maybe I've reached a new level of maturity where I care about issues such as taxes, education, and homeland security. My goal this year is to cast an educated vote, so I've been doing a little research on the candidates and their views. I took couple quizzes (http://www.selectsmart.com/president/2008.html and http://www.speakout.com/VoteMatch/senate2006.asp?quiz=2008) to help match me with the candidate who best fits my political views. Both websites put Duncan Hunter and Alan Keyes at the top, with Mitt Romney and John McCain following. So now I know who to watch so I can narrow down my choice from there. It was interesting to take the quizzes and really ask myself where I stand on the important issues. Now if I could just get a candidate who would get the rest of the country to ignore that annoying Daylight Savings Time rule... So, I know November is a long way away, but who's your favorite candidate(s)?

When, oh when will you update your blog? :)

A caucus is an opportunity for a state to select delegates to represent the candidate in a certain party they feel should become the presidential nominee. Phew! That's the short of the long. It's the first step in moving toward the national party nominations where the final two candidates will be selected and begin their run for the White House. Loads of fun, sort of!
