Best '08 Presidential Candidates

The Top Ten

1 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.

LOL a vocal minority loves him, but the rest of us just laugh at his ideas

2 Barack Obama (Democrat) Barack Obama (Democrat) Barack Hussein Obama II is 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 Romney.

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!

I'm glad he won against Hillary Clinton in his for the 2008 Democrat nomination. He's much better than her. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Mitt Romney (Republican) Mitt Romney (Republican)

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.

Mitt Romney is the ideal man to be president because he has good moral boundries due to being a mormon.

5 John Mccain (Republican)

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.

Nobody listens to what they're actually saying in the debates, and now we're paying for it. - ilovekelly75

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.

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.

Meh. Below average Democrat choice...but she has name recognition and that's what counts apparently.

8 Mike Huckabee (Republican)

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

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

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

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.

11 John Edwards (Democrat)

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

12 Samuel D. Sam Brownback (Republican)

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.
