I know it's early on, but I'm trying to sort through all the Democrats that have announced their candidacy - read about their pasts, political stances, etc. I'm also curious about how others are voting, if anyone has already made up their minds. I'm not asking who you're voting for in the primary, but who you're leaning toward at this time. I think my state has open primaries, and if so, I may vote in the Republican one, but I'm not as familiar with their candidates. So I'm not creating a poll for them.

I hope I included every candidate. There are several lesser known ones that aren't getting much press.
I think Christopher Dodd is running as well (the senator from Connecticut who isn't Joe Lieberman )

I really can't decide at the point. I like John Edwards and Barack Obama. Hillary, I'm not sure if she would get my primary vote, though I would vote for her in the general election.

The others I don't know enough about yet.

Kind of looking forward to hearing what John Edwards, and Hilary have to say. Voted John Edwards, but, leaning toward both. but, it's still early, so I'm willing to listen to what the others have to say before making my decision.

I do like Christopher Dodd. I probably know more about him since he is a senator from my state. He was in the Peace Corp then Army, then I think a lawyer who went on to the senate. I am surprised if you are a Democrat you havenít heard of him. He was chairman of the DNC a few years ago. He is a pretty good guy. I had the opportunity to meet him a couple times and he is a genuinely nice guy.

My speculation is that Hilary wonít have a chance since so many people hate her for whatever reason. Obama will probably peak early, but I like what he has to say. I still donít know that much about him. I am sure I will find out all I need to know and more in the next year.
Madonna getting upset with her daughter for dressing too slutty is like Mr. T getting upset with his son for pitying too many fools.
I'm a Democrat but of the people who've announced so far, I'm leaning toward McCain - depnds on his VP choice since McCain is no spring chicken.
I love, love, love Kucinich, so I voted for him in this poll...however, he's not as well known as he deserves to be. I don't see him making it past the primaries.
At this point, I'm torn between Obama and Kucinich. I would not be unhappy with Edwards, and I still don't know enough about some of the others running. I voted Kucinich for the purposes of this poll.
Obama or Hillary at this point.

Dodd is running? I'd vote for him. In the poll I picked Edwards, though.
2C/3A -- wurly!
I still like Edwards but I wouldn't hate Hillary.

I don't understand why so many other Dems are getting into the race. Seems a little self-indulgent when the front 3-4 are so qualified and popular...

I like Obama okay, but not this time for this office. I like Edwards because he's serious and he's not afraid to say tough things. He doesn't sugar coat them. I know that's in his interest, but some have a hard time doing it.

I also wouldn't hate R-Chuck Hagel.

I voted for Richardson. I also like Feingold who wasn't on your list.

Obama is very talented and capable, but I think he is too young. With more age and experience, I think he'd actually have a real shot and be a great leader.

Hillary is very divisive; there are too many people who hate her for her to be electable. I think she's solid and capable, but have real concerns about her running = an easy win for Republicans. They've had it easy for too long, until their arrogance on the war cost them Congress (thank god!)

Edwards is fluff. He couldn't even carry his own state when he ran with Kerry. And he's too young and way too unexperienced. No.

Kucinich has great politics. But electable? No.
