ON MATTERS OF PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

Ah, the joys of the presidential elections. That wonderful point in democracy where common people from common places travel to other common places to convince other common people that one is the best choice to be the next president of the United States.

Let's play a game, shall we?

I like to call this "name the candidate".

This candidate is notable for the following positions:

1. This candidate was against the Bush tax cuts in 2001.
2. This candidate believes in limiting free speech.
3. This candidate favors granting citizenship to the approximately 12-20 million illegal aliens in America.
4. This candidate is against drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which would significantly lower American dependency on foreign oil sources.
5. This candidate supports legislation to require background checks at gun shows, for sales between private individuals.
6. This candidate supports forcing television and radio stations to give free airtime to political candidates as a public interest.

So... who's the mystery candidate?

Clinton? Obama? Edwards?

Ok, you won't let me research the answer, so I'm just going to guess based on your level of predictability.
1) Hilary's too obvious, and everybody already despises her. You have nothing to prove by maligning her views.
2) Edwards? nah.
3) I'm going with Obama, because everyone seems to be in love with him right now, and you think that his leftist views are being overshadowed by his charming personality. You don't want people to be deceived.

How'd I do??
