  •  There are several matchers out there (0+ / 0-)

    I tried two of them and my results in both were:

    Kucinich 80% match
    Obama, Edwards, Clinton in that order at about 60%
    Gravel, Dodd below that
    Interesting thing was Ron Paul scored higher than Richardson on one of the polls.
    At the bottom was Tom Tancrado with 0% - had to laugh about that one as I'm in CO.

    BTW:  I am a registered DKos member and voted for DK in the straw poll -- natch!

    •  Honestly (0+ / 0-)

      I know some people here will flame me but Ron Paul is the only Repub that I like. He's like the Republican version of Kucinich and that means he would never get nominated by his party.

      •  The only thing I like about Paul (0+ / 0-)

        is that he speaks his truth, and he's not nuts as others in his party want to portray him.  All of his positions, or rather is though process behind his positions, I reject.

        Yes, he was and is against the war - BUT by his own reckoning he is also against intervention in Darfur, Bosnia, Rwanda...he would allow genocide to occur without batting an eye - yet would prohibit abortion.  His rationale for these positions is wrong to me, BUT he is more or less consistent, and he speaks his truth.
