POLITICS: Now 81% Pro-Bush!

So I took this online quiz to see who I support for president (duh!), and here's what I got:

Your Results:

1. Your ideal theoretical candidate. (100%)
2. Bush, President George W. - Republican (81%)
3. Kerry, Senator John, MA - Democrat (51%)
4. Edwards, Senator John, NC - Democrat (48%)
5. Lieberman, Senator Joe, CT - Democrat (46%)
6. Gephardt, Rep. Dick, MO - Democrat (45%)
7. Libertarian Candidate (42%)
8. Kucinich, Rep. Dennis, OH - Democrat (35%)
9. Dean, Gov. Howard, VT - Democrat (29%)
10. Clark, Retired General Wesley K., AR - Democrat (24%)
11. Phillips, Howard - Constitution (24%)
12. LaRouche, Lyndon H. Jr. - Democrat (17%)

14. Green Party Candidate (14%)
15. Sharpton, Reverend Al - Democrat (14%)

No surprise at the top, although I'd have thought it was closer to 90%. Can it really be that I agree with John Kerry more often than not? I mean, I know Kerry's been all over the map on a number of issues, but I've been listening to Kerry for years (particularly when I was in school in Massachusetts for seven years), and I can't ever remember him saying anything I agreed with, whereas I can think of several issues on which I've agreed with Lieberman, from war to capital gains tax cuts. It's also interesting to note that for all his "electability" talk, Clark is even further away from my side of the political spectrum than Dean is, which I take as a sign that unlike Dean, Clark hasn't been thinking seriously about politics long enough to dissent from his party's line on anything.

I'd be curious to know the 35% of issues on which you and Dennis Kucinich agree. Perhaps that the sky is blue and such?

Is it possible to be less than 100 percent in favor of your ideal theoretical presidential candidate?

I don't think so. That's the baseline.

I also find it unlikely that I'd be happier with Kerry or Edwards or Gephardt than with a libertarian.
