I have never been one to talk politics. There are so many politicians out there with so many views and opinions, I tend to get lost in it all. In the past, I never knew much about the candidates that I voted for (I know, shame shame), and therefore pretty much just voted a straight ticket to avoid confusion. However, the Michigan Primary was yesterday, and I decided that I needed to be a little more proactive with my choice (understanding that it is really important that I make a more educated decision). Yet, with so many candidates for 2008, how was I to find a candidate that I deemed most appropriate for the job? With all the media, I hear so little about the actual issues, and more about their personality and issues with each other.
Well, our local news station provided a link for a website that helps you pick a candidate! You answer a few questions, and they find a candidate that best suites you (based on the issues you deem most important, and how you feel about them). My hubby and I found it very interesting, if not for the candidate that it chose for us, just a topic of conversation on how we really feel about certain issues (or what some even mean).
Here's the link, if you want to take a stab at it: http://glassbooth.org/
