Let’s have a little talk about politics. Now before you run screaming for the hills I am not saying let’s debate about politics. In fact I imagine a debate around these parts would be the most boring thing ever. It would go something like this:
Me: I am pro woman! I am pro environment! I am pro equal rights! I am pro a trader joe’s in every state!
You: Me too!
Debate over. See? Dull.
But with it being November and all I do find that I am wanting to read up on politics so that next year isn’t so overwhelming.
This is where our little conversation comes into play. I want to talk issues. As in what are THE top three (or two, or one) issues that will decide who gets your dangling chad next year. Are you unwavering on it? Are you gung ho about a particular candidate already or are you just waiting to see who your party can get behind and then jump on that train?
Something that I found extremely interesting/insightful was a link that will, based on how you answer a series of questions, tell you who your ideal candidate is.
Of course there was no 100% ideal candidate for me. The closest was (shock) Chris Dodd. Really? Um. Interesting. Very close behind him (by 2 percentage points) was dear Barack. And three candidates down was Hillary. In fact I am a bit surprised that I didn’t line up much with her. What is that about?
So who were your top candidates in the test? Do you agree with it? And let’s start talking issues (in a friendly way please). And feel free to post anonymously if you want/need to.
