Im just wondering how these two popular political figures measure up on the board. Not that I expect Powell to run anytime soon for President.

I voted for Powell, even though I KNOW he won't run for any office. He's said in the past that he won't put his family through the proctology exam necessary to run for national office.

Why did you say Powell or McCain and then throw in a third name?  :o  If your question is truly Powell or McCain then nobody else belongs in the poll.

I chose McCain.   :cool:

I tossed in the third as a neither vote. ;)

I'd go for Powell as he is a calmer person that McCain.

Now this might surprise CJ a bit But if McCain wanted to run I'd probably take a leave of absence to go work for him. There is your leader, there is your great man. WHY couldn't the Republican party have gotten behind him instead of GWB? WHY? WHY? WHY? *Beats chest, gnashes teeth* :tribble:


By the way, the "why" is a rhetorical question. I DO know why.

You have three candidates listed there, not two.

Why is Kerry a "hypothetical" Democrat?
