    Default Non-US Gossiprockers, who would you vote for President if you could?

    Not making a poll because I'd like to see who answers and that they are not from the US (as far as I know).

    So what would it be? Hillary Clinton? Obama? McCain? Huckabee? Or none of the above?

    Hillary Clinton for me. I'd never vote Republican and I trust her more than Obama.

    USians welcome to comment on us crazy European and other types.

    I don't think Europeans are crazy. I spent a lot of time over there, my dad's business had him living there on and off when I was young.

    In general, I find Europeans to be much better educated and politically astute than Americans

    HILARY!
    actually of all the dem nominees my favourite was kucinich but he's out of the race.
    it would never even cross my mind to vote republican. not because i love the democratic party so much (far from it, in fact if this were european politics, they'd probably be more to the right than i really care for). and i'd never vote for a particular party just because i like one candidate. it's not just a person you're electing, it's a whole party and group of people and value system that you're putting in power.

    now if i could choose anyone, i'd get dominique strauss-kahn to run the US. wouldn't that be a blast, a french socialist jew running the US?

    Trust me, not so much. Some, maybe and we certainly have to be more aware that there are other people in the world but when it comes to national elections, trust me, we can and do fuck up or vote for the wrong reasons.

    An interesting question, and I am very curious to see what people have to say. So let your comments rip!

    I would find it hard to participate in such a corrupt system. When your government can be bought and sold by lobbyists and corporate interests, what's the point in voting at all?

    I can't really say, beyond 'it would definitely not be a Republican'. Probably whoever the Democrat candidate I thought had the best chance of winning is-beyond that, I don't understand the US electoral system enough to give an informed opinion.

    I'm a resident here, but I'm not a citizen, so I can't vote.

    I don't understand the system here particularly well. Definitely not Republican. Hell no. That's my only certainty.

    I hate the idea of picking the lesser of two evils though, still it's choosing an evil.. I hate two party systems..

    I would defnitely vote if I could. This is because I was brought up to be very political at a yong age. My father belonged to the Liberal Party adn my older brother (14 years older) was a member if youg Labor. My ealriest political activity was delivering ALP pamphlets for Gough Whitlam.

    I am now a swinging vote.

    I would vote for Hilary. This is becasue I loved the fact that when Bill was presidnet she took a great interest in our Medicare system for health and wanted to do something similar in America. She is also a very intelligent lady I remember reading years ago when she was practicing law she was ranked in the top 100 lawyers in America.

    So I think America deserves an intelligent president that is passionate about certain issues. I know she has done some sleazy things but what politician hasn't.

    If Hilary does not get the democratic nomination then I would throw my support behind Obama as he strikes me a a visionary.

    Oh now I want to vote. I am such an election visionary.

    Could I also say that America is a true democracy in that voting is not compulsory. So even though you may not like who gets elected at least it is a president voted in by people that have got of their butts to vote. Unlike here where a lot of people vote becasue they get fined if they don't. It saddens me that you do not get a better turn out for voting, as people in other countries have died to get the vote.

    Agree there.

    I'd probably vote Hilary, but I'd have to read more and know more about them if I was going to vote.

    Hilary Clinton.

    Obama is charismatic, and i don't trust charismatic people. And i definately don't trust charismatic politicians.

    That said, if Obama got the ticket i'd support him. Because whatever he is, he's better than McCain, especially if Huckabee ended up as his running mate.
