83% Bill Richardson
82% Barack Obama
81% John Edwards
80% Chris Dodd
78% Hillary Clinton
78% Mike Gravel
71% Joe Biden
70% Dennis Kucinich

46% John McCain
44% Mike Huckabee
37% Mitt Romney
31% Ron Paul
30% Tom Tancredo
28% Fred Thompson

Oooh. Jennifer, your politics are a bit different than I would have guessed. I line up more with Lloyd (results at http://tlpatten.blogspot.com). Who in the heck is Mike Gravel anyway?

And in regard to your other post's question, I feel that Bill Richardson is in it to make Hillary look like the more progressive and palatable choice from the inner Democratic circle.

Interesting thought about Richardson, I actually thought he was running essentially against Hillary. I thought initially that Gravel was a Republican when I saw him on Lloyds list. Funny- at least he is a dem.
I was surprised how my list closely aligned with my actual choices (save for Richardson, as indicated in one of my last posts).

I have a hard time viewing him as the anti-Clinton, when during the 90s, he was progressively involved with the Clinton administration. First, as a Congress critter, he was an ad hoc foreign relations negotiator and advisor (before his first official appointment), then he was appointed by Bill to be UN Ambassador (during which time he was asked to interview Lewinsky for a job outside the White House, which he offered her--she declined), and finally he was named Energy Secretary.

There's a lot of history between them. If any two of the candidates are actually "in bed" together, using each other as deliberate foils, I would suspect Clinton and Richardson.
