Thanks NOR. This quiz is useful, although it doesn't ask about some of the more crazy views of these candidates, like the fact that Kucinich wants to ban handguns, and restrict free speech by reinstituting the Fairness Doctrine, or that Ron Paul wants to introduce competing currencies to the fiat dollar (though his arguments are fairly compelling—he is obviously very intelligent).

Yeah, I don't really believe that any reasonably sized quiz can actually represent the totality of these people's beliefs.

What I find interesting about it is that, in defiance of what I would have actually believed, people tend to be very polarized. You can see my results and yours (and most people's I've seen) and it's blue on one end, a gap, and red on the other.

The only person who I've seen who doesn't fit this is billicious.

Funny. I must be a mainstream Democrat, according to the quiz. I forgot to paste the HTML code, I basically got 78-77-74 for Obama-Clinton-Edwards as my top 3. All of my percentages were between 34 and 78, and Rudy Giuliani was 6th with 61% in between Chris Dodd and...someone else. :)
