(Each "Featured Question," an idea which I gleaned from A Republic If You Can Keep It, will remain toward the top of the blog until the next question appears. The previous QUESTIONS are HERE. Please scroll down for recent postings)

In my view, the run for the political parties' nominations for President of the United States began too early. At least, the media blitz began too far ahead of time. On the other hand, by the time the November 2008 elections take place, we voters will have had a long time to scrutinize the various Presidential hopefuls, a few of whom have already betrayed themselves with blatant pandering for votes. And we still have have several months to go before November 2008! No doubt, more "revelations" will be coming. The media will see to some of those revelations, the blogosphere to others.
On Christmas morning, one of our local channels mentioned the "2008 Presidential Candidate Selector," a series of questions offering more options than those just-for-fun online quizzes, including a forum for discussion. Having nothing better to do early on Christmas morning — Mr. AOW was sleeping in — I checked off the answers to the twenty-six questions to see which candidate SelectSmart determined was most in line with my own views.

FEATURED QUESTION, in two parts:
(1) According to the 2008 Presidential Candidate Selector, which candidate most falls in line with your own views? Note that you do not have to choose an answer to every question! 2. Do you think that "your candidate" has a chance of being a nominee?

In a few days, I'll be posting my results in the comments section.
