Make him the VP with Ron Paul.
Nah, let's just elect Gravel and let Tancredo stay with Dobson in Colorado.
Come on man, start posting your heart instead of silliness. I for one would like to see where/who you are.
Gladly...I actually like Gravel. He's straightforward, no-nonsense, and seems like a jolly fine fellow, which none of the others do, but he's clearly not a serious candidate. Ron Paul seems like a man of consistent integrity and principle, and I appreciate much of his criticism of the government, but he's just too far out there, and I don't buy his uber-simple reading of the constitution. Romney's the business version of John Kerry but shmuckier, Giuliani is a single-issue idiot, and I'd sooner bring Bill back than elect Hiliary. That leaves Obama and Thompson, and I have yet to see anything from Thompson to impress me, but then again he's been smart enough to know that he doesn't have to do anything except stand there and not be Romney or Giuliani. Obama seems to be the most anti-political of the frontrunners (which is of course most likely a very political decision) which appeals to me, and I appreciate his stance against lobby groups and against the Iraq war (which I opposed from the start and appreciate that he did). While I disagree with him on other issues, he's a thoughtful, well-spoken man who's clearly very capable of calm rational discourse, and I find that appealing, though he's far too green to be ready to run the country...
So who knows?
