I just finished answering the questions on the latest version of the 2008 SelectSmart.com Presidential Candidate Selector and it looks like Dennis Kucinich is my ideal candidate.

Clinton and Obama tied for second place- which seems about right. And Sam Brownback and Fred Thompson both tied for last – which also seems like their proper place.

I just wish the Ideal Candidate wasn’t so damn Theoretical.

1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100 %)
2. Dennis Kucinich (81 %)
3. Hillary Clinton (78 %)
4. Barack Obama (78 %)
5. Joseph Biden (77 %)
6. Al Gore (not announced) (76 %)
7. Wesley Clark (not running, endorsed Clinton) (75 %)
8. Alan Augustson (campaign suspended) (73 %)
9. Michael Bloomberg (says he will not run) (70 %)
10. John Edwards (69 %)
11. Christopher Dodd (65 %)
12. Mike Gravel (64 %)
13. Bill Richardson (63 %)
14. Ron Paul (51 %)
15. Elaine Brown (48 %)
16. Kent McManigal (campaign suspended) (46 %)
17. John McCain (32 %)
18. Rudolph Giuliani (29 %)
19. Mike Huckabee (29 %)
20. Tommy Thompson (withdrawn) (28 %)
21. Chuck Hagel (not running) (20 %)
22. Mitt Romney (20 %)
23. Newt Gingrich (not announced) (14 %)
24. Tom Tancredo (14 %)
25. Duncan Hunter (12 %)
26. Sam Brownback (11 %)
27. Fred Thompson (11 %)
28. Jim Gilmore (withdrawn) (6 %)

 
  • I’m apparently even more in line with Kucinich, followed by Augustson and Obama, with a slightly bigger drop off to the rest of the pack.

    1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%)
    2. Dennis Kucinich (91%)
    3. Alan Augustson (campaign suspended) (88%)
    4. Barack Obama (84%)
    5. Joseph Biden (78%)
    6. Hillary Clinton (77%)
    7. Wesley Clark (not running, endorsed Clinton) (75%)

    So I guess I’ll be voting Obama in the primary, unless something changes between now and then…

    According to the test here’s my top 10, even though I will NOT vote for Clinton:
    1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%)
    2. Alan Augustson (campaign suspended) (79%)
    3. Barack Obama (76%)
    4. Joseph Biden (75%)
    5. Hillary Clinton (74%)
    6. Wesley Clark (not running, endorsed Clinton) (71%)
    7. Dennis Kucinich (71%)
    8. Al Gore (not announced)(70%)
    9. John Edwards (66%)
    10. Christopher Dodd (63%)

  • 1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%)
    2. Dennis Kucinich (89%)
    3. Barack Obama (87%)
    4. Alan Augustson (campaign suspended) (87%)
    5. Hillary Clinton (77%)
    6. John Edwards (74%)
    7. Joseph Biden (73%)
    8. Christopher Dodd (71%)
    9. Wesley Clark (not running, endorsed Clinton) (71%)
    10. Mike Gravel (70%)

    I would have self picked Obama first and Edwards next. Not surprising that Dennis is up top. I don’t mind the guy nearly as much as some (then again I’m no constituent either). Odd that Gore did not show up higher in mine (only 12th).

  • Joe – more important!

    It’s STEELHEAD TIME! Runs are starting!
