Announced candidates

Democratic Party

Senator Joe Biden of Delaware
Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut
Former Senator Mike Gravel of Alaska

What the hell is Mike Gravel thinking? He's been retired since the 80's. No way in hell I'd vote for Christopher Dodd. If it was between these three I'd vote Joe Biden.

Republican Party

John H. Cox of Illinois

hey mine too but i probably wont vote


To be honest, It's stuff like this that makes me sick.

First of all I hate politics most of the time its dirty.
Second of all I never like any of the candidates in presidental eclections neither one of them is ever honest or noble.
Thrid we are always told one vote can make a difference when the truth of the matter is it doesn't....


If everyone thought the same as you no one would vote!

As I said on the last page, if you can vote but choose not to you have no right to whine when the President does something you don't like. You should have voted.


What about that whole "freedom of speech" thing?

I would vote Al Gore for sure in 2008, if he does not run I would vote for one of these guys.

2.) Wesley Clark (would make a great VP if Gore gets in)
3.) Mark Warner (He was the #1 Governor in 2005)
4.) Senator Bill Nelson of Florida (I know he won't run and don't plan too but for some reason I think he would make a great VP.)

Gore was and still is a long shot. While I can't say he'd win the 2008 race (he did get the popular vote though) he would easily win the Dem primary. It's his for the taken, all he has to do is beat Hilary, which won't be hard if he gets in the race before the spring. All kinds of Dem sites have Gore way ahead of everybody else, so Gore does have support if he jumps in. As of mid-2006, Gore has seen a dramatic increase of support amongst the grassroot Democrat constituency, who have stated a high level of support for a possible Gore candidacy and a surprisingly high number of respondents (68%), preferred Gore as the 2008 Democratic nominee in an AlterNet poll. Plus Gore is always droping hints here and there unlike in 2002. His movie also has help him out in many ways, maybe now he could run on the environment and win this time. It's him or Hilary, no one else can get that much support and money from dems. Plus Al didn't vote for the war in Iraq and he's a southern (last guy to win from the north-new england was JFK).

Oh, God, I needed that. Thanks for tickling my funny bone.

McCain, Newt, Guiliani, or Condi would be fine with me on the Republican side. I would support Lieberman but it is doubtful his party would nominate someone like him.

This'll be my first election so I can hardly wait.


I agree with your choices for the Republicans Randy. McCain, Newt, Guiliani or Condi Rice. I would also support Liberman but he isn't going to win his party nom I would also vote for Zell Miller but he will never run I don't think since he is retired.

Zell miller killed any chance he ever had of becoming president when he was interviewed on Hardball back in 2004.

Condi said she's not running. How do I know, you say? When she came to Utah, she was interviewed and one of the local reporters asked that question. She said no. It would be nice but she's not up for it.

I believe you speak your opinion by voting. If you give up that right, then shut up.

I am a Democrat in a very Republican state. My vote will technically never count, because of the electoral college. But I always vote anyway, because it is my duty to say who I want to be president. If I don't say it then at the polls, why should anyone listen to me later, when I had the perfect chance?

Yes but I really doubt that it says in your constitution "You can only comment on a president's abilities and competence, good, bad or indifferent, if you voted for either him or the other guy"...or words to that effect. If I'm not mistaken, freedom of speech for you lot has few if any restrictions. Personally, I feel everyone should be free to comment, irrespective of whether they voted or not. Not that I ever plan to vote in an American election though.

Of course they can say anything they want. No one's jailing them for stating their political beliefs - and that's what that means, literally.

But what I'm saying is that I don't respect you or want to listen to your complaints if you chose not to vote, (assuming you're old enough and physically able) and then whine when the guy (or gal) you don't like won. If it REALLY mattered to you, you should have voted. ^o)

I know, I just feel that everyone has the right to voice their opinions. Me, I hate elections, all those news reports, bunting and posters. I'm probably never going to even bother voting. Politicians are all crooks as far as I'm concerned. The one constant in the universe: politics sucks wherever you go. Anyway, our president got her second term without even having to bother with the hassle of an election. That rocks, especially for her. And my eyes weren't offended with the aforementioned annoyances so everyone's happy.
