    Because, given what information I have on the two at this time, I think it probable I would find myself disagreeing to a greater degree with Clinton than with Palin.

    Even given that I probably fall somewhere between the two on moral/social issues (with variances towards one or the other depending on the issue), I know that I am opposed to Clinton’s probable fiscal policies…

    And for me, fiscal is the more important at the moment.

    Thus…


    Edit: So, in a way, it would be more a vote against Clinton than for Palin - Depending, of course, on what Palin did during the campaign...

    I do. Clinton's big push will be universal health care. My biggest enemy? Universal health care.

    I will adamantly fight tooth and nail against any candidate who tries to introduce it to the American public.

Obama was attacked for being black, his religion, people he shook hands with, people he might have looked at wrong but we're all supposed to bow our heads in shame because a hill billy folks woman from Alaska shows up in Washington and does not want to be attacked even though she attacks people herself? Well that's not a very good politician is it? I don't want somebody who constantly cries about being a public figure ripe for attacking but pimps her family out at every occasion she gets. That's not how things work. As far as her career goes? Who the **** cares. She is a supporter of the oil industry screaming about Obama being in the pockets of big oil. Once again, not the sign of a very smart politician or one I'd want running the country.

    Don't get me wrong, Palin was a shinny and sunny little candidate but who cares? Neither her morals, values or politics appeal to me or most Liberals that I know. I'd probably talk to her if she was my neighbor but would I vote for her? No. Her politics are lame. Her experiences of the world are not something I can relate to. She panders to the ethnocentric mentality that plagues white America. Once again, not somebody I'd vote for. But then again, who gives a **** about her politics? If I don't like her as a person, that's MORE than enough to resist with every fiber voting for her.

    Deal with it Libertarian.

    Well, I would probably vote for a candidate that I disliked as a person if their policies were to my liking.

    Libertarians are letting their political bias appreciate the actual value of palin. To me it seems inconceivable, I would be embarrassed to associate myself with her intellectually in any way.

    Id have to agree, whether I like someone or not isnt the biggest influence on getting my vote, if their polices, thoughts and abilities were up to par they could still have my vote if I didnt like them. Imo though Palin lacks all 3 but thats just my opinion.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    Who a person is dictates their policies. Palin's base is filled with homophobic ethnocentric supporters suggesting that she herself exhibits some homophobic ethnocentric qualities they are drawn to. Not somebody I can support.
