More 2008 Elections Wankery

http://www.dehp.net/candidate/index.php: A test that tries to rate primary candidates of the major parties. I don't really know how useful it is, but it is something interesting at least. The set up is that it lets you rank issues in terms of "Support" or "Oppose", and how much weight you give to such issues. As a result, you can actually get a higher result from someone you do have disagreements with, than with someone whom you have none. Also, the areas where you disagree with the candidate (as long as their score is greater than zero) is posted under the name. Anyway:



Dennis Kucinich (D- Ohio): 53
Disagreements: No Child Left Behind, Assault Weapons Ban

Mike Gravel (D- Virginia): 50
Disagreements: None

Barack Obama (D- Illinois): 29
Disagreements: Assault Weapons Ban, Patriot Act, Border Fence, Iran Sanctions, Same-Sex Marriage

Bill Richardson (D- New Mexico): 23
Disagreements: Death Penalty, Patriot Act, Iran Sanctions, Iran - Military Action, Same-Sex Marriage

Hillary Clinton (D- New York): 19
Disagreements: Death Penalty, No Child Left Behind, Assault Weapons Ban, Patriot Act, Border Fence, Iran Sanctions, Iran - Military Action, Same-Sex Marriage

John Edwards (D- North Carolina): 19
Disagreements: Death Penalty, No Child Left Behind, Assault Weapons Ban, Patriot Act, Iran Sanctions, Iran - Military Action, Same-Sex Marriage

Joe Biden (D- Delaware): 16
Disagreements: Death Penalty, No Child Left Behind, Assault Weapons Ban, Patriot Act, Border Fence, Iran Sanctions, Same-Sex Marriage

Ron Paul (R- Texas): 16

John McCain (R- Arizona): -26

Sam Brownback (R- Kansas): -28

Mike Huckabee (R- Arkansas): -31

Rudy Guilani (R- New York): -38

Tom Tancredo (R- Colorado): -46

Mitt Romney (R- Massachusetts): -58

Duncan Hunter (R- California): -59



Then again, it's not like I'm going to vote for any of these candidates anyway, most likely. I'd need to declare for a party to do that first...
