Evidently all the GOP ones have "flaws". Um... Are they human? What do you think of this article?

  • yes. his name is Ralf Nader. i voted for him in 08. however he didn't have a chance being an independent in a 2 party run nation. i wish ppl would open their eyes to the third parties. it's not throwing your vote away if its the right decision

  • I think it depends on your political beliefs. What is perfect for one party, isn't perfect for another. Then again, what is perfect for one person might not be perfect for another. This would be why we have elections. If everyone agreed, no need for that!

  • It all depends on what you consider to be the perfect trait in said candidate?! And is that trait the best one to have at whatever state our country is in?!

    For me the perfect candidate has strong, proven, conservative fiscal expertise, solid foreign policy experience and/or military experience. Notice how I seek/prefer candidates with EXPERIENCE?!?! LOL :o)

  • Well, is there such a thing as a perfect human? Any person running will have flaws. That isn't the issue. The issue is very much wrapped around our current president being more interested in his own agenda and not listening to the people who hired him. The president can have a vision and a plan, but he/she must be willing to be flexible and realize that the citizens aren't incompetent. We know what is best for ourselves. We don't need to be 'handled'.
