My very first meme-ish quiz!

Arrg. I don't go in for that whole quiz, post, pass it on thing; this one is actually kinda interesting though. SelectSmart.com has a nifty presidential candidate selector. It asks you a few weighted questions and shows you how well you match up with various candidates. I unchecked the boxes that disallow third party, unannounced, and withdrawn candidates. Here are my results.

Your Results:

1. Your ideal theoretical candidate. (100%)
2. Cobb, David - Green Party (85%)
3. Nader, Ralph - Independent (79%)
4. Dean, Gov. Howard, VT - Democrat (72%)
5. Brown, Walt - Socialist Party (71%)
6. Sharpton, Reverend Al - Democrat (71%)
7. Kucinich, Rep. Dennis, OH - Democrat (70%)
8. Edwards, Senator John, NC - Democrat (66%)
9. Kerry, Senator John, MA - Democrat (66%)
10. Clark, Retired General Wesley K., AR - Democrat (64%)
11. Moseley-Braun, Former Senator Carol, IL - Democrat (62%)
12. Gephardt, Rep. Dick, MO - Democrat (56%)
13. LaRouche, Lyndon H. Jr. - Democrat (44%)
14. Lieberman, Senator Joe, CT - Democrat (42%)
15. Badnarik, Michael - Libertarian (32%)
16. Bush, President George W. - Republican (15%)
17. Hagelin, Dr. John - Natural Law (14%)
18. Peroutka, Michael - Constitution Party (12%)


Strange stuff, really. I'm glad I'm closer to Cobb than Nader, but yikes, that's a little close for comfort. It's a little odd to see Clark so low on my list; lower even than Kerry! Strange also, to see Sharpton so high on my list. Speaking of strange, I find it odd that LaRouche is even on my list at all! (I'd totally vote for Lieberman over LaRouche.) It's nice to see Dean so high on my list-- NYAAAAAARRRRG! (Speaking of Dean, I've got to go catch up on his little debate with Nader...)

Anywho, if you want to take the test yourself, click here.

I wonder where Cobb is on your list?

Did you uncheck all the boxes?

I guess they didn't update their site since the Green convention. Cobb must be on their undeclared list.
