The worst candidate

Hankster suggests that a look at the worst qualities comprising a composite candidate might also help us work through the options, so here’s a stab at it: For experience, Obama, for fiscal policy Kucinich, for commitment to secular government, Huckabee, for generosity of spirit Rudy, for genuineness it is a tie between Hillary and Mitt.

Music: For any old Sun Records fans out there I recommend Rockabilly Riot, Vol. 1, A Tribute to Sun Records by Brian Setzer. It’s got 23 cuts, all under three minute long, of great Sun cuts done in a slick, but still rockin’ Setzer style, that keeps the energy of the originals and adds some modern production values.

Great minds think alike. You've nailed it down well. I would give Huckabee a tap for education of evolution/science, which really is the same matter of secular government. Rudy would get a mention for not playing well with others. Having a grey beard myself, do I cast stones on McCain's age?

I almost put McCain down for his age, but his mother is 95 and going strong.

I still don't understand why his age is an issue at all..

it shouldn't probably, but he'd be the oldest President ever to take office, so it gets a lot of attention.
