Best '08 Presidential Candidates

The Top Ten

1 Ron Paul (Republican) Ron Paul (Republican)

Dr. Paul speaks the truth on all issues. No hidden agenda, No special interest to favor, Excellent core value that can and will bring this Country back to the United People it should be. Take back your Country with a leader who believes in the Constitutional laws

Ron Paul is unlike any of the other republicans. He vote no on the patriot act, no child left behind, has opposed the war in Iraq from them start. He is also opposed against the North American Union. He believes in bringing the constitution back as the backbone of our Government

Let's pick a canidate who is not controlled by the financial and political interests of organizations who have less than the best interests of the American people at heart. We need somebody who will stand up for the people, and reclaim our constitution and our democracy.

I agree, but a lot of people are going to vote for clinton or obama just because we have never had a woman or a black president. Some people don't even know what they are voting for when they vote for them other then that fact. What we need is a good president not a history maker.

2 Barack Obama (Democrat) Barack Obama (Democrat) Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

Obama is the best candidate so far, so is Hillary. After the Bush regime, its going to be hard for Republicans to redeem themselves. My opinion is that these pass eight years it seems like Republicans just want to do whatever they want to do and not be concern about everyone else that is affected, say they want to help the people but it seems like they have selective hearing. What to do things equally and fairly but break the rules. Just a bunch of old people who declares war and let the young people fight for what "they" feel is right. Go fight it yourself. Let your kids be on the front lines. We need people like Obama and Hillary who has passion for the people and not try to win by using ridiculous slanders on other candidates because it seems like thats they only option. Bush and anyone who supports him is our downfall or our own destruction.

What this country needs right now is a President that is a uniter, not a divider. A President that puts the country's concerns above their own personal interests. Most importantly we need a President that makes us feel good to be American again. This is exactly what Senator Obama represents and this is why he will be the best person to lead this country through this troubled time into a bright and promising future - JohnCaldwell

OBAMA CARES!

OBAMA HAS SHOWN GREAT EFFORT INTO MAKING US BELIEVE THAT HE WILL CHANGE THIS WORLD. CHANGE IS WHAT WE NEED. NO MORE UNFAIRNESS. OBAMA HAS TO OFFER MUCH. HE IS A LEADER WHO CARES ABOUT THIS COUNTRY. HE HAS DEMONSTRATED POWER, CHANGE, AND FAIRNESS..
MY VOTE GOES TO..

BARACK OBAMA EVEN THOUGH I AM 12 YEARS OLD.. I KNOW OBAMA CAN MAKE United States A BETTER PLACE!

barack is way better then mccain it's that simple. if we want the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer then vote for someone else, this man is all about change. - JESSIEMEN

3 Mitt Romney (Republican) Mitt Romney (Republican) Willard Mitt Romney is an American businessman and politician who served as the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and was the Republican Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election.

Governor Romney has the best speaking skills of all the Republican Candidates. McCain fumbles and bobles anytime he's encounter with any issue other than the military. I believe Romney is the only candidate with the experience, speaking skills, morals, ethics, and clean back ground to be able to defeat a Democratic candidate. In addition, I don't believe any of the Democratic Candidates have the skills to be the President of the most influential and powerful country in the world; the leader of the free.

Some of the things that guy says are ridiculous, he's basically the stereotypical Trump. I like him better than Obama, but if I HAD to vote in 2012, I would've voted Libertarian, instead.

Romney was alright. A moderate who probably would have had a better shot to win the presidency than McCain in all honesty.

I belive Mit Romney is a genuine goodguy and everytime he speaks you can see passion in his eyes

4 Rudy Giuliani (Republican)

A goofball who led in the polls early on only to choke later

Rudy is what america needs.

5 John Mccain (Republican) John Mccain (Republican) John Sidney McCain III was an American politician and military officer who served as a United States senator from Arizona from January 1987 until his death.

Rip John McCain - railfan99

Voted for the Iraq War. Major fail. However, he realized we needed to finish what we started...something Obama goofed up on. But come on...we couldn't seriously have another Republican right after the Bush disaster.

to me john mccain is my choice becuase he been in the frontlines of the iraq war. He probilly knows more about this war than any other canidate, and on the postive side he wants to bring our troops home.

he was once a prisoner of war, was tortured and returned back as a hero. He is best for America.

6 Fred Thompson (Republican)

A true republican conservative who can pull this country out of the hell it's in.

a real conservative that america is in dire need of right now.

RIP

7 Hillary Clinton (Democrat)

Despite that she is a woman, she is the best candidate of them all.
Its time we let the woman rule. Women by nature are much better diplomats and care more for social well being than men. Hopefully we can finally get the government sponsored Health care as the rest of civilized world.

Brilliant, fearless, educated, compassionate and willing to be the target of the republican 30+ year smear campaign which aimed endless vitriol and conspiracies theories at her!

Clinton would be a much better Presdent the all the rest. her goals are where we should be heading in America. None of the others will matter when our future children read about this election in the history books

She has the guts, which no female ever had. She has the experience, which no candidate ever had. She has the will, which no person ever had. She will be the next president of the United States.

8 Mike Huckabee (Republican)

a conservative southerner who is honest, trustworthy, and like able (among other things)

Focused too much on social issues rather than the big picture.

if Chuck picks Huck, then he's alright with me - iceman60

9 Tom Tancredo (Republican)

Tom Tancredo from Colorado knows what the real issues are facing immigration reform. If we are going to give what amounts to amnesty to 12+million people committing illegal acts, then we should release 12+million from our prisons who have committed illegal actions....seem only fair!

He must have smoked weed before it was legal.

10 Tommy Thompson (Republican)

Solid guy. Quick thinker. Knows what he believes and will stand by his principles. Is biding he his time before he jumps into the big contest.

Another nobody that nobody voted for.

The Contenders

11 John Edwards (Democrat)

He has the will, the POWER, and the brilliance to rule America. GO JOHN!

Democrats sure aren't popular in this poll, are they?

12 Samuel D. Sam Brownback (Republican)

anti- gay
pro-life
supports war and lower taxes

This guy sucked as governor of Kansas. Destroyed the state's budget by cutting all income taxes to the wealthy and now has a 25% approval rating. And he thought he could be president? HAHAAHA Biggest fail in the GOP.

13 Alan Keyes (Republican)

He is a politician with a clear conservative viewpoint and he does not play the games of the politicians. True conservative

14 Joseph Biden (Democrat) Joseph Biden (Democrat) Joseph Robinette "Joe" Biden, Jr. is an American politician who was the 47th Vice President of the United States, jointly elected twice with President Barack Obama, and in office from 2009 to 2017.

I feel safer just knowing this guy is around somewhere and he isnt even president yet! Finally, someone who says what they mean and means what they say!

Should have been elected years ago. If there's anyone who can mop up the mess the Bush administration has done, it's this guy!

How is Joe so low on this list? He would have made a fantastic president. I would have voted for him over Hillary in 2016 if he had ran.
