I must say that Ron Paul has continually been a shining star. Representing the common man, but I would be carefully consider the field knowing that a
vote for him may actually help a contender that I didn't want. (see: ross perot) I think Ron Paul would make a fine president, but his refusal to
sell out alongside his peers has possibly branded (unfairly) him as too extremist. The MSM would likely vigerously attack him in a campaign.
Jesse Ventura who was a fantastic (independant) governor and would easily have won re-election, but was so incensed with the glaring corruption in our
political system that he refused to run.
I would call attention to Russ Feingold
who also has a record of voting for
the people and not the corporate lobby. He was the ONLY senator who voted against the original patriot act, he is not afraid to vote against his party
if he feels he is serving the people, and he rarely misses a vote. He would have my strong attention in a campaign, and my support should he advance
to a presidential cabinet position.
Ralph Nader had his chance but he stands up for the people and would make a good addition to any cabinet, perhaps even a vice, but I don't think he
has the political weight to make a serious run for president.
Pat Buchanan, not so much.
