Best '08 U.S. Presidential Candidates

The Top Ten
1 Ron Paul (Republican) Ronald Ernest Paul is an American author, physician, and retired politician who served as the U.S. Representative for Texas's 22nd congressional district from 1976 to 1977 and again from 1979 to 1985, and for Texas's 14th congressional district from 1997 to 2013.

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.

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.

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

2 Barack Obama (Democrat) Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.

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 that's 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

Great at domestic affairs (though Obamacare is still awaiting a verdict)...but absolutely bombed at foreign policy during the first 4 years though. Took us out of Iraq...oof what a disaster. Hello ISIS. Struggled to grapple with a GOP controlled congress throughout most of his presidency. They certainly didn't make things easy. Average president I think

Obama! McCain scares me and Palin is a ding dong! Our country is a mess and we need someone to get us out of this mess, not assign the snack schedule for Hockey practices!

3 Rudy Giuliani (Republican)

Rudy is what america needs.

4 Mike Huckabee (Republican)

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

5 Fred Thompson (Republican)

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

6 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.

Mitt Romney represents what America was when our forefathers founded this nation and what it should continue to be.

7 John Mccain (Republican) John Sidney McCain III (August 29, 1936 – August 25, 2018) was an American politician and military officer who served as a United States Senator from Arizona from January 1987 until his death. He previously served two terms in the United States House of Representatives and was the Republican nominee more.

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.

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

Should have won over the overhyped Obama with a falsely advertised economic plan.

8 Alan Keyes (Republican)

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

9 Hillary Clinton (Democrat) Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (born October 26, 1947) is an American politician, diplomat, and former lawyer who served as the 67th United States secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, as a United States senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, and as first lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001 as the wife of President Bill Clinton. A member of the Democratic Party, she was the party's nominee for president in the 2016 presidential election, becoming the first woman to win a presidential nomination by a major U.S. political party; Clinton won the popular vote, but lost the Electoral College vote, thereby losing the election to Donald Trump.

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.

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.

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

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 Samuel D. Sam Brownback (Republican)

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.

12 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.

13 John Edwards (Democrat)

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

14 Ralph Nader (Independent)
15 William Bill Richardson (Democrat)

My neighbor could get more votes than this guy.

16 Bob Barr (Libertarian)

Libertarians suck by default.

17 Mike Gravel (Democrat)
18 Joseph Biden (Democrat) Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (born November 20, 1942) is an American politician who is the 46th and current president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 under Barack Obama and represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009. more.

I feel safer just knowing this guy is around somewhere and he isn't even president yet! Finally, someone who says what they mean and means what they say!

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.

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!

I believe he is understanding, and knows wahats best for the U.S.
