I really like this Presidential Candidate Selector. It covers all the issues, both big and small, and really made me think about which ones are most important to me. I also realized that I’m not as up on all of the issues as I should be. I’m going to work on that. It’s easy to get wrapped up in what should be done about Iraq and let the other stuff slide by.
With an 84% match, it looks like Barack Obama is as close to the “Theoretical Ideal Candidate” as I can get. Funny, I thought it would be Hillary Clinton—who came in at #7 with 74%. Still a strong showing, but now I want to evaluate why she didn’t score higher. Does this make me an Obama girl??
So, how about you? Who is your close-to-ideal candidate? Were you surprised by the results? Most importantly, are you well-informed about all of the issues?
