So I admit that my previous endorsement of Bill Richardson was a bit premature. Although I do like him, he is rather uninspiring and prone to gaffes. Also, at the time, Barack Obama didn't really have policies. That has been fixed.
Transparent Democracy is beautiful. Hell, everything on that page is pretty awesome.
And wouldn't it be nice to have a president that is actually inspiring when he speaks? I've come to think that this is, in fact, a very relevant skill... because I think Obama would have a much easier time inspiring people to follow his lead than any other candidate would, and thus could get a lot more done.
Meanwhile Hillary talks about how Republicans are evil, manufactures a never-ending stream of lies to which Obama is forced to spend too much time responding, and really has nothing going for her except that everyone likes her husband. Why is she leading in the polls? I don't understand it. :( I'd seriously consider voting for John McCain over her.
Now, Mitt Romney, on the other hand... God damn, I hate that guy. (PS. Huckabee is nice but dumb, Ron Paul's policies sound clever but would actually destroy us, and Giuliani 9/11 9/11 9/11, 9/11.)
Obama vs. McCain would be such a wonderful choice to have to make (although seeing Obama beat any of the other Republicans in a landslide would also be cool). Clinton vs. Romney would be a very sad choice to have to make (hopefully Bloomberg would save us).
