Candidate Match Game 2008

Like it or not the political season is upon us. USA Today has a basic 14 question Presidential Match interactive quiz that will correspond your answers to the candidate that best represents your responses. It's not a perfect test nor are the questions perfect but it's a start. It's fairly common to hear one of us say we "like" this candidate and "do not like" that candidate supported with one or two hot button issues. Yet, do we really know who WE stand the closest to on the more comprehensive issues?

Granted it is a simple and limited test, yet it may help to foster thought on the issues before us. Private thought, your thoughts about what is important to you in the upcoming election. And it just may cause you and I to rethink who we like and who we don't and more importantly, why. Frustration and aggravation may drive us to say it doesn't really matter but deep down, we know it does. It really, really does...

Thanks for the link and test. My best match was a guy I didn't even recognize. Which wasn't a surprise.

This was great it fell right in line with how I was planning on voting. I made Riz take it and it fell in line with his choice as well...
