I'm planning on following this one to closely, because lets face it, what happens in the US affects us up here.

Can someone give me a quick unbiased summary/platform of the more unknown candidates. I've already got an understanding of McCain, Clinton, Obama, Rudy and Mitt Romney.

I'm inbetween Clinton and Obama also, but as of right now I voted Obama. And I really don't see that changing much. I've NEVER EVER voted, but this time I'm voting.

Ditto, plus she has said she wants to drop the speed liimit back down to 55 to conserve fuel.

I haven't given much thought about Hilary as Prez but NY was F'ed up long before she arrived.

I think you're wrong about Obama, I live in an incredibly racist/conservative town so sometimes it'* hard to remember that there are progressive people out there, but I think it'* possible he will get elected. I personally like Edwards a lot, he'* got Carter'* appeal, but is WAY more suitable for office :P

I don't think there is a strong enough Republican candidate to beat out Obama or even Clinton.

and I'm not exactly sure how Hillary screwed up NY as a Senator, but I don't like her character that much (although I love her husband).
