    Which politician most favors your interests?

    I know you guys are tired of talking politics, but I thought this quiz was neat. It said I was closely tied to Gov. Bill Richardson. I don't even know who this guy is.

    And now for something completely different:

    (100%) 1: Rep. Tom Tancredo (R)
    (98%) 2: Sen. George Allen (R)
    (98%) 3: Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist (R)
    (98%) 4: Sen. Sam Brownback (R)
    (90%) 5: Ex-Rep. Newt Gingrich (R)


    I know nothing about either Tancredo or Brownback.

    Some of the answers were really limiting - a lot of those issues are more complicated than "yes, no, neither"...

    This makes sense to me, meaning there are no suprises to me because these are the last two presidential candidates I voted for:

    (100%) 1: Ex-VP Al Gore
    (97%) 2: Sen. John Kerry

    The prospect of Al Gore running for President in 2008 is very intriguing. I want to go see An Inconvenient Truth, but I have to wait until mid-June and have to drive 100 miles to see it.

    I have learned a lot about you Bubba from this. Tancredo is a representative from Colorado who was one of the driving forces behind the Illegal Immigration issue. He is from the district where I grew up in South Suburban Denver (I think that Miles Iggy lives there).

    Not my guy, but he did attend the same college as I, many years before of course.

    Maybe that shed some light. I did not know that he was considering a run though.

    (55%) 13: Ex-Gov. Mark Warner (D)
    (51%) 14: Gov. Mitt Romney (R)

    These questions did not allow for much in the way of tweener answers and a lot of them were loaded with an "and" clause that is typically a survey no-no, particularly regarding the Iraq War, abortion, and social insecurity. There are portions of environmental policy I hold as more important than others. My tops ones listed are way to "party-line" for my taste.

    From the incredibly small amount of research I've done I think I might align closer with Bil Richardson of those on my list--but again, I haven't really started contemplating a vote that is two years away.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Maybe that's why Tancredo ended up as my #1 - I think that the immigration question was one of only two or three that I listed as a "high" priority. I wonder if the whole priority thing on each question really skews the results...there were several questions where I selected "neither" and gave that particular issue a "low" priority simply because neither of the answers really reflected my views.

    A little different, and off-base since it doesn't include any candidates from outside the majority party. I'm pro-choice on everything, but gun control is my major issue, since it says so much about a politician. But I could see myself voting for Rice or Newt. Certainly never for Pataki, Clark, or Giuliani.

    Frist
    Allen
    McCain

    Ok, I like Sen. Allen and Sen. McCain. Not crazy about Frist. Not crazy really about Senators running for President or being President.

    I am, as many here know, a pretty consistent conservative but am looking for new ideas in 2008.

    Though that entire list seems, well, hopeless, mostly.

    I'd vote for Feingold. He's been an outspoken advocate of fiscal responsibility, environmental protection, fair trade and labor, and campaign finance reform (he co-sponsored the famous "McCain-Feingold" bill). He definitely doesn't bow down to the Democrat party line.

    Thanks for the info. and link passdoubt. I am actually going to be in Wisconsin all of next week so I'll have to ask how people feel about him for president.

    The Bear Checks In

    I answered the questions as honestly as I could. I am suprised at the results. Sadly, I don't know much about my three 100% "choices". I was very suprised with my 98% "choice".

    Evan Bayh 100%
    George Allen 100%
    Bill Frist 100%

    Al Gore 98%

    Somebody was xxxxing with the chads.
