I'm pulling for edwards. I'm on board with him as far as our health care policies are concerned. To be honest, its the biggest issue with me right now. I'd vote for Rudy should my other options fail me based on his social position of not legislating morality.

I agree with Edwards on a lot of things, I just really don't agree with his position on mandatory military service. As for Rudy, I don't really know what to say. We've had a demon in the White House for the past 8 years, do we really want to fill his position with another?

And Gravel is completely insane, just the type of person we need in charge haha. But really, I like him.

well mandatory military service is one of those things that he pushes for during an election to prove a point.

And the problem is Rudy will be severly weak on Foreign Policy, which unfortunately for him we need to beef up greatly.

Yeah, Rudy is INCREDIBLY weak on foreign policy, and I consider a candidates stance on foreign policy to be one of the most important of their stances. Non-interventionist policy is almost a neccessity for me in a candidate, I could agree with every one of their other positions but I just don't think I could lend any support to a candidate who supports intervention (a polite way of saying imperialism) in other countries.

well lets not get all "I took a week of sociology 101" here. I don't think he's actually supporting the interventionist movement in a general sense. This is election cycle politics at its core definition. To have an interventionist mentality you know that it has to be used sparingly at best lest one false threat lead us to where we are now, with a bigger threat looming and no military or public support to deal with it.

And can I ask why foreign policy weighs to heavy in your mind?

Ok, I'll say it, Al Gore. I think he would work wonders for the economy because I'm confident he'd make something like research on cheap fuel alternatives a major initiative, among other things to save the working-class money. And I love that he is all "save the environment" even if he is a bit eccentric. And I've met Tipper and I think she'd make an awesome first lady. She is really down-to-earth.
