Who To Vote For For President

Neal from the South Pole posted an interesting quiz on his great blog. It's a VoteMatch quiz on who should be elected president in 2008. You answer 20 questions and it tells you how you match up with the current field of presidential candidates, based on social and economic issues, and on an overall basis. It's interesting that my co-closest match, at 55%, was Dennis Kucinich. I ended up voting for him in the nearly-meaningless Pennsylvania primary in 2004, not so much on the issues as for the fact that he seemed to be the only candidate who was his own man.

I was fairly surprised by the results of the quiz for me, but then I took the quiz to find out where I stood because I'm a bit cut off from political talks (that's probably a good thing).
