more politics

Rachel had this posted over on her blog today, and I couldn't resist putting it up on mine too. This little quiz asks you 14 policy questions and then tells you what candidates most closely line up with your preferences.

After taking this, I realize that I am still undecided on a lot of issues. I definitely need to do more research. So who was the top of my list? It was actually a tie between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. I totally admit that their policies aren't that different, but I definitely think Obama is the better candidate. Hillary is very smart, but there is just something about her that I don't trust. And I really don't see how being first lady counts as so much "experience". On the other hand, Obama seems truly genuine with a very diverse background that I find refreshing.

Take the quiz. It doesn't take very long. You might be surprised by who tops your list. And of course, please share!


  1. Thanks for posting this link. It showed me that I need to do some research as well! My top was Dennis Kusinich (sp?). I've barely even heard of him and clearly can't even spell his name. Time to go look him up!

  2. Fun to find you lurking in my blog :) I like to lurk sometimes too, especially on people's blogs who are pregnant! Congrats!

  3. I thought it would be interesting to do, seeing as I'm a Canadian and have a different perspective - I got the same as tia, and then Hillary Clinton was just four points under him. :)

  4. I looked at something like this months ago and realized how many issues I need to learn about! I haven't done it since...
