In the upcoming presidential election,John Edwards is my first choice. If he is not viable, it would be Hillary Clinton.

Unfortunately Gravel & Kucinich, in the current climate, are not realistically electable candidates, and when it comes to politics, I am definitely a realist first...yes, I will vote for the candidate whose message appeals to me, but s/he MUST BE ELECTABLE.

I had settled on Edwards before I found this quiz, and notice that I score lower with Hillary than with Barack, but I would choose Hillary over Barack any day.

Feel free, American or not, to take this quiz and share your results and your own personal inclination on who you support or would support with me and others.

DEMOCRATS

92% Mike Gravel

88% Dennis Kucinich

74% John Edwards

71% Bill Richardson*

69% Chris Dodd*

68% Barack Obama

64% Joe Biden*

64% Hillary Clinton

* = no longer in the race

REPUBLICANS

39% Ron Paul

25% Rudy Giuliani

22% Mitt Romney

22% Tom Tancredo

21% John McCain

18% Mike Huckabee

18% Fred Thompson

By the way, I think Chris Dodd would be an excellent VP, and Bill Clinton should be Secretary of State - and put Obama on the Supreme Court! He is a constitutional law expert and belongs there.
