Default For UNDECIDED voters and 3rd Party or BUSH supporters

If you are someone who is either on the fence regarding Kerry, or are currently planning to vote for Bush, Nader, or the Libertarian candidate, will Kerry's choice of running mate change your mind?

If you plan to vote for Kerry NO MATTER WHAT, please don't vote. I'm interested in the swing voters.

I am going to go into this election open minded. I plan on listening closely to what Kerry has to say before I decide if he can sway my vote away from Bush. BUT I do know his choice of running mate will have little bearing on my decision.

I picked Hillary Clinton (dodges flying figs) because she is a good match for him concerning the liberal issues (environment, women's rights, etc.). I doubt he will choose her because he'll probably want someone more moderate who can get the south and midwestern swings. Though, Nader STOLE Gore's liberal voters in 2000. I hope Kerry remembers that. I don't like this liberal denial thing - I think by now most people know he's one, and the question is a media test. I'm leaning toward a vote for Kerry, but will not vote for him just to vote against Bush. I want to take a closer look at Nader and the Libertarian (forget his name!) before I make a decision. Kerry's running mate will infuence my decision because the choice says what his priorities are in terms of getting/keeping voters, but it alone probably won't determine whether or not I vote for him. It just depends on which crowd of voters Kerry wants to target, where he thinks he can win. I won't fault him if he chooses Edwards or Clark - I like them both, and either will probably get him more votes in the south and midwest. I will NOT be happy if chooses Gephardt, I will say that right now.

I agree with muchkin except that picking Hillary would guarantee I wouldn't vote Democratic.

Although it's been said that the Clintons are rallying behind the scenes to get the nom for Hillary, Kerry would be a fool to choose her. Why would he want to spend his entire term being overshadowed by the VP and her husband?

No you haven't. We haven't picked one yet. Our nomination convention meets over Memorial Day weekend and is independent of the primaries.

Chances are it will be either Michael Badnarik or Gary Nolan.

I may have to agree with you on Hillary. For some reason I think Kerry might think she would overshadow him and, therefore, not pick her.

Heh, heh, sorry - I must be thinking of another minority party candidate - isn't there a Rouscas (some weird name beginning with R) running? Which party is he in? I thought he was Libertarian, but guess not.

Lyndon LaRouche (D-Virginia) * Ok, I think he's who I was thinking of. Why did I think he was Libertarian?

Are you talking about LaRouche? :headscratch:headscratch.gif He's a Democrat. The LP has a Russo in the running, but that doesn't sound that weird to me.

Here's a list of everyone running for President or for their party's nomination, including all of the minor parties and independent candidates.

Yeah, it's LaRouche (you must've posted before I edited my message - sorry!).

I put Edwards, but it's really based just on gut feelings. From what I know right now, pretty much uneducated about the candidates, I really liked Edwards and that would make me lean toward Kerry.

Otherwise, I'm still pretty decided, but a Clinton VP would sway me toward Bush!

Not on your list, but someone who would definitely sway me to vote for either candidate is McCain. There's current gossip that he could be Kerry's candidate, which I think would be wierd, but I'd vote for him. I haven't heard anything about Bush looking for a new VP lately, but depending on Cheney's health, it's possible he will look for a new VP. If he were to choose McCain, that'd make me definitely vote Bush. I do know enough about McCain to know he'd sway my vote. I plan on being more educated about Kerry before the election.

I'm a Kerry person so I did not vote in your poll which means I can't see the results... GRRRR!

If Kerry chooses Hillary, I will not vote.

I can't bring myself to vote for Nader or Bush. I dislike them and disagree with them both but I will not be responsible in any way for that woman reaching a higher level of power. If she is the nominee in 2008, I will likely vote Republican unless the nominee is Jeb Bush. If that is the case I will be moving to New Zealand.

I wouldn't mind if Kerry picked Bill Clinton.

The only way I'd ever blow a vote on Kerry was if he either made Dennis his VP...or swore on every single one of his dead family members that he'd help Dennis get some legislation passed. Like, oh, UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE(HR 676.)

He probably won't do that, so, tough for him!
