    The other thread was started well before the announcements of the candidate's picks for vice president; so i think a revised thread is in order.

    So, as of now, who do you plan to vote for in November?

    You could probably give McCain a 50 vote handicap but Obama would still win amongst this group.

    Would that this group were an accurate microcosm of the country. ;)

    No one is repressed like white, middle class, conservative males. Fight the power guys!

    Obama / Biden here. I don't think Palin will be able to overcome John McCain's policies. Her pick, while savvy, is simply a ploy. If Hillary had been picked as VP, I would lay money that McCain would not have chosen her.

    I'm not fully decided yet, but I'll probably vote for Barr/Root.

    McCain's campaign surprises me on a daily basis...I find it hard to believe that people actually take him seriously, never mind want to vote for him. :eek:

    Obama/Biden for me, and hopefully for the majority of the Electoral college.

    Obama/Biden. The uncertainty of Obama is better to me than the certainty of McCain.

    See, we can agree on something! I even made my son who wasn't going to vote because he doesn't like either of the main two listen to his NPR interview a few weeks back and he was shocked that the dude's got some valid points and is going to vote Nader as well. Talk about change.

    And I like Flight of the Conchords as well, so that's another thing we agree on.

    Nader is a very smart man, and in my opinion, the only guy running that has much concern about the average American. He's devoted his life to doing so in a very direct way.

    I would urge the undecideds or the Obama supporters in heavily blue states to take a look at some of Naders issues: http://www.votenader.org/issues/

    Nader is polling pretty well for the amount of media coverage he gets (none) and no television advertising (at least in Arizona. I don't know about other states). He's at about 7-8% in NM and PA, and polling at about 4% nationally. It's a real shame that he's not being allowed to join the debates though. Third party candidates have just as much right to be there as the corporate candidates.

    If that old prune and his trashy vice president win the white house then there is no hope for you guys. Its no secret that America is disliked world wide.

    Its a shame really, but come November I hope you lot can fix it and get Obama in.
