Wesley Clark Vice-President Poll
This is a signifigant action needed for Clark supporters.

Help vote in the poll for a possible Clark Vice-Presidency!

MSNBC is having a poll to find out which candidate would make the best vice-president for John Kerry, and our man Clark is on the list. We're not sure if Clark is entertaining the idea of vice presidency, but I'm sure all of us would love to throw our vote in. Click on the link listed above and fill out the poll. Then tell us how you ranked, and why. Or, if you'd rather not, just please tell us your ranks.

1 - Wesley Clark. He's the man. As a former NATO commander, he can bring to the table the best ability to counter Bush's main arguement - defense. Most Americans still think Bush is doing a good job with defense (suprisingly.) Kerry and Clark are both war vets, so they have a signifigant trait in common as well.

2 - John Edwards. He has the largest following, and can bring in a lot of the southern states. (Arguably, more than Clark.) He does seem to have stances most similar to Kerry (from what I understand.)

3 - John McCain. Although formally aligned with the Republicans, he's always been more of a independent, really. Although changing parties could cause political suicide, I think it would ultimately bring in a lot of normally Republican voters.

4 - Howard Dean. Despite that speech, I think he's still a very respectable guy. However, I can see people drawing a lot of criticsm from the Republicans.

5 - Bob Graham. I've been in politics for a while, and I can't say I know the guy. Popularity unfortuately is a big thing for most voters, I would imagine, and I don't think people would vote for someone who hasn't been in the spotlight much.

I really disagree with putting Graham at number five. Everyone in Florida *loves* him, and as we know all too well, Dems need Florida for this election. He's certainly not unknown.

McCain is a republican who has already started campaigning for Bush. I think it would be a major mistake if he was VP. In fact it may push me (and many others who are sick of the republicrats) over the line enough to vote for Nader.

Clark, Edwards, or Graham would be excellent choices.

since i read that article posted earlier

about Kerry being reluctant to pick Edwards(and i now doubt he'd pick him), i hope he picks either Bob Graham or Wesley Clark as his VP. the Dems so badly need Florida, so i wouldn't mind seeing Graham being chosen(even if Clark isn't picked).

also, i hope more states take a hint from Louisiana and start doing run-off voting. it would make more sense, forcing the 2 main parties to take 3rd parties much more seriously, and also DISCOURAGE them from ignoring 3rd party runs for offices. i'm really glad that because of that system in Louisiana, that it seems to help Democrats often win elections there.

Hey, everyone! It's my first post here...Clark, Edwards or Graham would all be good choices. I think putting a Southerner on the ticket is absolutely vital. Edwards has the name and face recognition, and he's very attractive, which is always a plus. In terms of electability, I think he'd be the best choice, though he and Kerry together are more conservative than I'd like.

Graham is a good, solid candidate, but I honestly don't know much about him-- and I don't think that too many other people do, either.

Dean's done for, at least for now. And I honestly don't think he'd go for it. Besides, two New Englanders on the ticket? Probably not going to fly in the south.

Gephardt just needs to give up. Does anyone actually like him?

McCain...well, he's a Republican, and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't run on a Democratic ticket. In spite of that, I like him. But I swear, John Kerry and a Republican? That's enough to make me turn Green. Almost. (I did vote for Kucinich...)

First choice, ultimately? Clark. :)
