Kucinich = Andre's Choice 4 Prez?

According to this Candidate Calculator, I'm supposed to be a Dennis Kucinich supporter. I could do worse I guess. I mean, have you seen his wife?! She's not the hottest woman on the planet, but I'd much rather have her as a First Lady than Bill Clinton. No doubt!

Anyway, here's how I scored:

Top Match
Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich (D) - 81.82% match

Other Top Matches
Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D) - 72.73%
Delaware Senator Joseph Biden (D) - 72.73%
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) - 72.73%

Middle of the Pack
Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (D) - 63.64%
New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) - 54.55%
Texas Representative Ron Paul (R) - 54.55%
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) - 45.45%
Businessman John Cox (R) - 45.45%
Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd (D) - 45.45%
Arizona Senator John McCain (R) - 36.36%
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson (D) - 36.36%
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) - 27.27%
Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo (R) - 27.27%

Bottom of the Barrel
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback (R) - 18.18%
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) - 18.18%
Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson (R) - 18.18%
California Representative Duncan Hunter (R) - 9.09%

At no suprise, most of the GOP wound up at the bottom of the list. But I admit I was pretty suprised (and maybe a little disappointed) that at least Ron Paul and I didn't see eye-to-eye on more things. What's worse is that Ghoul-iani scored so well with me. Freaky.

How do you rate?

Elizabeth Kucinich = hot?

ABSO-FREAKIN'-LUTELY!

I mean, she's British and has a tongue ring. All she needs now is a guitar!

By the way, sadly Mike Gravel was atop my list.

hillary was top on my list on this quiz. but that's the only place she's tops cause she's not my candidate choice. not a fun quiz andre--but then maybe it wasn't meant to be.

I noticed thatof the nearly 1.2 million people that have taken this quiz, the 5 "Top Candidates" determined were Gravel (12.9%), Giuliani (12.1%), Romney (11.7%), Kucinich (9.3%) & Biden (7.1%). Now, there's far too many "what-ifs" with this quiz to be able to seriously use it for citation (it's far from being scientific), but if the stats pertaining to Democratic candidates are even remotely accurate, then it raises some serious questions about why potential voters are planning on casting their votes for the current Democratic poll leaders (i.e. Clinton, Obama, Edwards) and/or just how aware these potential voters are about each candidate's respective positions on every issue.

For the record, I scored a 98.15% match w/ Gravel, followed by Kucinich (80%), both of whom I'd love to have as President. But, being the realist that I am, I am more than aware of the current political climate, & given that, both would ultimately be able to accomplish very little of their respective platforms during the course of their term.

Additionally, I intentionally left out Republican candidates due to the fact that of the two in the 5 "Top Candidates", Giuliani is (as of this post) #1 in the Republican polls, & Romney is in the top 5 in just about every Republican poll that I've come across.

Interesting test, Dre. Like Nic, I'm not so sure how scientific this test is (especially since little know Mike Gravel ranked so high), but it was still fun to see how my views aligned with the candidates.

I had Dennis Kucinich too!

Sigh! Men! :)

I scored high with Chris Dodd. But I never even really heard of him. Odd.

Hey Dre,
Are you ready for this! Barack Obama by 83.33! No other candidate scored over 13! Sorry Mitt, it looks like Barack is my man. I'm really not suprised. I've always said that I agree with everything that Barrack says with gun control being the only exception. It's too bad that I live in Michigan and am now a disenfranchized voter and will not get the chance to vote for Barack unless I write him in. Strange that it's a huge crime if Republicans disenfranchize voters (particularly black voters) but if the Dems do it.....no big deal. On another note. According to the Candidate Calculator I'm 54.68% Republican and 45.33% Democrat.

"No other candidate scored over 13!" OOPS wrong column, no one scored over 60.

@Nic,
"if the stats pertaining to Democratic candidates are even remotely accurate, then it raises some serious questions about why potential voters are planning on casting their votes for the current Democratic poll leaders (i.e. Clinton, Obama, Edwards)"
Answer; The same reason they won't vote for 3rd party candidates-they figure they can't win so why "waste" their vote.

BARACK OBAMA ALL THE WAY!!!
