    Well, it looks like it's between Hillary & Barack on the Democrats side and McCain & Romney, with Huckabee as a spoiler on the Republican side.

    So who are you going to vote for

    OR

    Haven't made up your mind but still going to vote

    OR

    You don't vote

    OR

    Even of this primary crap, when does the voting start on American Idol?


    I'll be voting on the Democrat side, but haven't made a final decision yet. I like Hillary, but I feel like it back to the 90's with the Clintons back in the White House. But Obama is capable of inspiring people, but can he turn that into action?

    In Rhode Island, the primary isn't until March 4th. I was leaning towards Hillary until last week. I am just so sick to death of the ugliness that I saw in the South Carolina debate (and leading up to it from Bill). If John Edwards is still in the race on March 4th, he'll get my vote, regardless if he has a chance to win ultimately.

    Okay...so I posted (above) and then read that John Edwards is dropping out of the race today! That means Obama will be getting my vote.

    Hillary

    after seeing Obamas childish behavior the other day where he blatantly turned away from Hillary to ignore her handshake makes me think how the hell can this guy stand up to foreign powers if he is going to have a pouting fit with a running mate.

    Vote Hillary!

    "Hillary Rodham Clinton is wise, competent and strong enough to lead America with dignity, forthrightness, anger when it has to be, love as it must always be, temperance as required and justice with everything"

    -Forgot who said it but it sums her up perfectly

    While I am not voting in the primaries, I do think this is a point to keep in mind (with regard to media portrayal of Senator Clinton's "breakdown"):

    Won't be around for the 5th.

    I hope Obama wins it. He's the only mainstream candidate I'd vote for come November.

    I'd been neutral for most of this past year, but had been leaning towards Hillary. But, I've been having a real hard time reconciling how she and Bill have been running the campaign, and I just don't see how her presidency would work. Bill would be just too big of a distraction. There was a time I wouldn't have minded that, but I think it will lead to more division and distraction that we don't need. I'll support her if she becomes the nominee, but my vote is going to Obama on Super Tuesday.

    Because her attack dog Bill has been the spitting image of Presidential.

    Minnesota holds its caucuses on Tues. night but since I am an Independent, I will not be attending either the Democratic or Republican caucus. If I were to choose to actually affiliate myself with a political party it would most likely be with the Democrats (especially this time around) and I would be caucusing for Obama since my first choice (John Edwards) is apprently dropping out of the race this afternoon.

    I'm registered as "unenrolled" (no party affiliation), but lean Democrat. I was on the fence until the South Carolina ugliness and will probably vote Obama. Bill is too much of a distraction and I don't want to see the Bush-Clinton-Bush dynamic - and the rancor it causes - continue long enough for Chelsea and Jenna to run for office, too.

    adding to [or reiterating] what ericla and caramelized say, i gave hillary a chance, but the way she and bill [hello, 22nd amendment, anyone??] have conducted their campaign recently, i'm one edwards supporter who will now be throwing his [still considerable] weight toward obama.

    if you have listened to the speeches romney and mccain made the other night, the republicans cannot wait to face hillary. they are foaming at the mouths at the prospect of a general election against billary, whereas their campaign will have to be a little more subtle [they can take clues from the clintons though] when battling barack.

    by the way, what did the Clinton 90s give us? Don't Ask Don't Tell, The Defense of Marriage Act, and no Universal Healthcare -- not even decent reform of the healthcare system.

    and, with a nod toward most of what this site is seemingly geared toward, it'd be cool to have a white sox fan in the white house.

    The Clintons have been disgusting as of late and am shocked people are still voting for them (especially after the Jesse Jackson comment).

    We don't caucus till Thurs, and I'm going for Obama.

    And let's go back to the 90s!?!? Are you kidding me? Let's go forward to new and better things with someone who doesn't send her husband out to do dirty work and maligning.

    And are we forgetting what she did in FL? She is unscrupulous, and it is getting comically sad.

    i will be voting for HILLARY

    there is no way obama can win in a general election. he is too inexperienced, and all talk. i mean we already had someone who was an outsider, Bush, and look where it got us.

    if hillary doesnt get the nomination, i'll be voting for mccain in the general, hes a good guy and i know he has plenty of experience to run the country.

    Are you kidding?!?! Bush is an "outsider"...did you take a look at his cabinet and inner circle? My biggest fear is it'll be Hillary for 8 years, then Jeb Bush for 8 years. Then we'll be just like England when "royalty" ruled for centuries.

    Since we're on the issue of "outsider" status and experience, I thought I'd post the committee assignments for each of the Senators in the presidential race (in no particular order). This may not change any minds, but if we're going to debate experience and credibility, let's at least have something to reference.

    Clinton: http://www.senate.gov/~clinton/senate/committees/
    Obama: http://obama.senate.gov/committees/
    McCain: http://mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=IssuesLegislation.CommitteeAssignments

    Biggest no-brainer for me- Hillary. Obama wants to INCREASE the size of the military- that never bodes well for me, and speaks to him not knowing what the heck he is doing. Politics is ugly, and if Obama doesn't realise that soon, he'll be trampled over by the Limbaughs, Hannitys, and O'Reillys of the world.

    Most likely Hillary.

    But...
    She needs to inject some ideology and hope into her message. She's very pragmatic and analytical about issues, which is great! However, we need some cheering up and hearing her talk doesn't make me, and I would guess most Americans, feel better.

    That said, Barack's message makes people feel better but there's not as much substance to it.

    In the end, what I want most, is a candidate that can deconstruct and manage the issues our country faces. Hillary has shown great ability to lay out the cards, foresee many variables and then connect them to pursue an action.

    Barack doesn't do that, he's a grand generalist and perhaps better at delegating. The main thing that unsettles me about him is that he's courting America and being on his best behavior in order to project an image of great moral integrity.

    Hillary, well... if she was trying to project an image other than her true self, why in hell would she choose this one? She's a hard ass, tough and dominant woman and makes no attempt to come off in any other light. Her light shines brightest when she's on the attack, and I think we need a real Rottweiler to bite at the jugular of the current establishment.
