    Whatever, people were so fascinated with electing a black POTUS, they were saying he was the best even before his inauguration.

    What I want to know is, what have us poor deprived girls who never met you been missing out on?
    That's not what the signature is about. It's about how he, himself, considered himself to be the 4th best president. On a note of what you've been missing, I can assure you that you've never met anyone quite like me.

    Absolutely. If a candidate was a drug addict, I wouldn't vote for them. If they had a medical problem that would affect their ability to do the job successfully, I wouldn't vote for them. I wouldn't necessarily not vote for someone because they had a different religion than me, but if I thought they would allow it to unduly affect their decisions I might not vote for them.

    If someone has a horrible moral personal life like a history of theft, abuse, or other things I wouldn't trust that person to lead the nation. Sure, I would like to have a president that shares my religious views, but that isn't necessary for my vote. I wouldn't withhold my vote for Romney because he's a Mormon.

    I tend to vote based on many aspects of a candidate...including integrity, capabilty, record, philosophy, temperment, and perfomance. In other words, the reasons I would NOT vote for someone are far less important than the reasons I would.
