There are definitely some interesting people signed up from different backgrounds and with different views on just about everything. Barack Obama remaining the Democratic choice, the Republicans and Independents have come up with a few other interesting options:
The coolest by far is Republican Jimmy McMillan,
He's a Vietnam Veteran, a Karate Expert, an R & B Artist, a formal Postal Worker and Private Investigator with a shocking resemblance to Mr. T. He holds a Christian stance, but is fine with same-sex marriage saying he would allow marriage between a person and a shoe.
Living in Brooklyn, NY he has run for the New York Governor position standing with the Rent is Too Damn High Party. It reminds me of how far we've went from the original draft for the Declaration of Independence (The Virginia Declaration of Rights) which stated "That all men... have certain inherent rights... namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety." The draft was changed with Benjamin Franklin assuming property to be a "creature of society."
The most notable candidates may be: The former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich; homosexual, Fred Karger; former Presidential Runner, Mitt Romney; and my second choice, Tim Pawlenty.
Other probably/possible candidates are: former VP runner (with McCain), Sarah Palin and former Presidential Runner, Ron Paul.
The best candidate though, is Republican Herman Cain,
He has corporate, legislative, and media experience and also has been a mathematician in the US Navy, he has strong Christian values (Pro-Choice, Anti-Homosexuality), he has also been a radio host, and is a cancer survivor.
This is the best site, so far, that I've found to compare the potential presidents:
Sadly, as far as I know, Mike Huckabee, Stephen Colbert, nor Sarah Palin will be running this time.
Oh, and dare I say it? Would it really be that bad if Obama was in office again? It seems like a president can barely get anything done in one term and Barack has always pushed "change," so unless he's going to do something horrible it might be good to see what he comes up with in the second term.
(Though I do not give Obama the credit for the Osama assassination, this picture pretty much says it all)
