Valid candidate we could convince to run

Posted Friday, June 6, 2008, at 4:16 PM

Like so many of you, I must admit I don't feel good about any of our presidential candidates.

And that goes for both major parties.

Do we have valid candidates to serve at this crucial time who didn't even get in the rat race of presidential primaries, someone the people could convince to run?

Can you name a presidential candidate and vice-presidential running mate you would feel comfortable voting for in November?

I would vote for Peter and Stewie Griffin before I'd want any of the 3 running now. LOL!

But in seriousness, if I could choose anyone... I would like Ron Paul with Duncan Hunter as his running mate.

I will have to agree with you, Bo. I don't feel good either and the candidates are rather scary to me .If the US was not in the condition it is, I would still be very uncomfortable. So what about Ron Paul ?

I regret that I do not have a clear candidate in mind. Ron Paul is of interest but I really know very little about him.

I am sure there are great candidates out there, but who wants to go through the intense scrutiny and often distorted news reports about their life.

I like Duncan Hunter a little better than Ron Paul, but both would be good choices.

You are hilarious. Not sure if I want to be place under scrutiny day after day over little issues that doesn't really define that individual.
