book cover humor

Not a huge surprise. And, as usual, not as accurate as I'd like. There were several questions where my answer would have been "both", or "neither", but that wasn't one of the choices. Just the same, I'm curious about how others will score.

Your Issue Profile: 24% Obama, 76% McCain

When it gets down to it, you tend to best match John McCain.

But he's not the perfect candidate for you, and you may not be sold on him yet.

Obama shares a good number of your views too, so you might want to give him a second look.

It all comes down to which issues matter to you the most.

Hm ... Doctor Who

another political test, stolen shamelessly from karbear57

This annoyed me quite a bit. I've always stood by my determination to be a moderate, and the results make me look like a right winger. But on second thought, McCain is a more moderate member of his party, and I'm a centrist in a very conservative state, so maybe it fits. Besides, this test is skewed more toward the candidates than the issues: Although it's important to keep in mind how the President would handle things personally, I still believe their stands on the issues, and their party platforms, are most important. (Sadly, most Presidents do toe the party line when it comes to platforms.)
