I guess my candidate is...

Following other family bloggers lead, I tried this Candidate Calculator. Its a useful tool for people who don't have time to weed through each candidates position, which normally is made clear in a 14 page essay! At the bottom I left it Undecided so that it would not take my current preferences into account on anything but the issues. Here are my results:

Mike Huckabee - 74.00% match

Your Other Top Matches
California Representative Duncan Hunter (R) - 68.00%
Businessman John Cox (R) - 67.00%
Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo (R) - 66.00%

Middle of the Pack
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) - 61.00%
Arizona Senator John McCain (R) - 60.00%
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback (R) - 56.00%
Delaware Senator Joseph Biden (D) - 55.00%
New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) - 54.00%
Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (D) - 54.00%
Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D) - 53.00%
Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd (D) - 52.00%
Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich (D) - 50.00%
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) - 49.00%

Bottom of the Barrel
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) - 47.00%
Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson (R) - 44.00%
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson (D) - 41.00%
Texas Representative Ron Paul (R) - 33.00%

Party Results Republican - 53.24%
Democrat - 46.76%

I think the most amazing things to me were
1. 46.76% Democrat? Wow..I never have sided with a democrat in my 10 years of voting.
2. How low Giuliani, Thompson, and Paul were? 33% with Paul? thats crazy!
