INDY Poll: Who would you like to see win the 2008 United States Presidential Election?

I've made a new INDY Poll available. During convention season, I mentioned that I would make a poll for the 2008 United States Presidential Ballot once all the major parties* had selected their candidates.
* I'm defining a major party as those parties whose candidates appear "on the ballot in enough states to theoretically win a majority in the U.S. Electoral College" [wikipedia]. For a full list of the 2008 candidates check out Wikipedia's "List of candidates in the United States presidential election, 2008".

As always, I encourage you to learn about the candidates, their parties, and where they stand on the issues. I believe that votes should be cast toward the candidate(s) who you feel would best represent your opinions and values in their office. To aid you in that understanding, I am including links to Wikipedia's articles on the candidates' parties, their campaigns, and I will even provide you with links to some helpful online "quizzes".

INDY Poll: Who would you like to see win the 2008 United States Presidential Election?
- Constitution: Baldwin / Castle
- Democratic: Obama / Biden
- Green: McKinney / Clemente
- Independent: Nader / Gonzalez
- Libertarian: Barr / Root
- Republican: McCain / Palin


As of yet, I've only found a couple online "quizzes" that I really like as far as political opinion alignment goes. The number one on my list has always been SelectSmart.

In fact, I'll throw SelectSmart's 2008 Presidential Candidate Selector Widget into the post right here:

(If the widget doesn't show up, just use the link I just provided.)

I came across another quiz today which is also pretty decent. However, it is really only good for aligning you with a candidate on environmental issues, SelectSmart's selectr address an array of issues. Anyhow, here's The Daily Green "Which candidate thinks like you on environmental issues?" quiz.

Once you've got your choice figured out, come jump back over to the INDY Blog and place your vote in the poll. (The poll closes at midnight MDT on November 5th; and you can always change your vote up until that point.)
