I Should Vote For Barack Obama!

[Posted by reader_iam]

At least according this quiz. Who knew? My fall-backs, apparently, are Ron Paul, 61.96% (gulp); Joe Biden, 57.61% (oh, man, what is this, destiny's smile?--longer term readers will get the implied chuckle); and Christopher Dodd, 56.52% (what the--?).

Well, maybe it's not all THAT clear-cut (rats, I can't just link to the results, and now I'm going to have go back and append percentages to the guys already mentioned, too, and change the punctuation of my series; huff, huff):
Middle of the Pack:
If your top choices aren't in the running, keep an eye on these candidates in 2008.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson (D) - 56.52%
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) - 54.35%
Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich (D) - 54.35%
Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo (R) - 53.26%
Businessman John Cox (R) - 51.09%
Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson (R) - 51.09%
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) - 48.91%
New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) - 47.83%
Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (D) - 47.83%
Arizona Senator John McCain (R) - 36.96%

Bottom of the Barrel:
You won't be getting on the campaign trail with these candidates anytime soon.
View/Hide Bottom of the Barrel
Former Tennessee Senator Thompson (R) - 36.96%
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) - 33.70%
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback (R) - 32.61%
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) - 31.52%
Well, the bottom-of the-barrel list is mostly right, at least, though I confess to suprise over where Huckabee fell, and I haven't seriously thought about Fred Thompson yet (because, well, it's a bit hard to do so, and he just got around to declaring, after all.)

But overall? Sigh. I guess this means I'll just have to keep struggling through this election process the old-fashioned way. No shortcuts for me!

Hat tip, QC Examiner.

Update: Not sure how this ended up back in draft. It wasn't intentional.
