So far I have been able to vote in one U.S. Presidential election: 2004.
And I look forward to voting in the 2008 presidential election.
The criteria I used then and the one I am using now is:
"Who will make the world a more interesting place for the next four years?"
I see any major party candidate as being the flipside of the same coin.
As such I have been forced to find a new criteria and that is what I used.
I am far from uninformed, I have a college degree in Political Science.
I think this method works just as well as any other criteria.
I was wondering what anyone thinks of this as a way to decide who to vote for.
My criteria led me to vote for Bush in 2004 and has me leaning heavily towards Obama in 2008. Although, I did vote in California in 2004, so you
can't blame me for electing Bush. Since Kerry won the elctoral votes from that state, my vote was rendered meaningless.
What do you think? I am serious about this as a topic for discussion.
Which candidate so you think would make the world more interesting and why?
