Pony Open Thread: Who’s the Candidate for You?

This link will bring you to Presidential Candidate Selector.

It’s interesting and surprising. It may show you which candidate best matches your views.

Hello everybody. I’ve been in Boston these last few days and just back home at 5:30pm. Hope all is well here.

Don’t rec the pony party. Chit chat, relax, and be excellent to each other.

    tell us who matched you best… it’d be interesting to know

  1. Are you kidding??? I assumed it would be Kucinich. What did I miss? Did Obama change his positions on the issues? Anyway, Obama 82%, Kucinich 80%, Hillary, Dodd, Biden, Edwards tightly grouped from just over 70% to just under. Gravel and Richardson bringing up the rear of the Democrats, with Richardson at 57%.

    Then Ron Paul at 49%, Giuliani 38% (how’d he score so high?), the rest of the Republicans getting lower and lower until Grandpa’s 14%.

    But I’d still like to see a higher score. Obama at 82%. That’s still not high enough to be impressed.

    Went back to try out 2004. Nader and Cobb got 97%, Kerry 67%, Bush 12%.

    On the Democratic side for 2004 my personal choice, Howard Dean, was ranked 4th, behind Sharpton, Kucinich, Mosely-Braun.

    Not surprisingly Lieberman was last.

    I’m fine with that.  Only 83%, but that was my highest.  Apparently I’m not overly happy about anyone.  That’s about right, too.

  7. What should the Pony Awards be all about?  Anyone have suggestions?

    http://www.dharmadoc

    Best of the blogs for the week?
    Worst of the pundits for the week?
    Politicians that get it?
    Politicians that don’t?

    Who should the Pony go to?

    says Dennis at or above 94%, so that’s whom I’m contributing to and voting for.  Especially after yesterdays move in the house.  Go Dennis!

    • fatdave on November 7, 2007 at 7:26 pm

    I can’t vote for you, but I’ll send a few quid anyway seeing as how you came out 89%.

    Who are Alan Augustson, Elaine Brown and Kent McManigal?

    I was suprised that Obama ended up scoring highly for me.

    None of them inspire wacky passions in me.

  9. Kuchinch
    Obama
    Biden
    can’t remember
    can’t remember
    can’t remember
    Dodd

    I’m really surprised Biden was 3rd and Obama was second. I am seriously considering voting for Dodd, so the fact he came out 6th was surprising.

    • Temmoku on November 8, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    then Obama etc…seems like all the Dems were my top matches.

    I just can’t figure out how Alan Keyes got a 16% with me? And Gingrich got 12% I wouldn’t rate either that high even if no rocks were available!
