I'm not too familiar with some of the candidates, but those I know just don't seem like they have the presence and charisma needed to win people over. This is so depressing. I want a candidate I feel strongly about. I just don't like any of them. Can't we find someone out there? I can't stand Hilary, but she seems like the strongest candidate out there on both sides. Anyone else feel the same?

Well, yeah, I do feel the same. But I'm a crazy Socialist, so I think mine doesn't count.

I don't feel the same. For the first time I will be voting in the Republican primary because we finally have a candidate that is consistent and honest. Ron Paul.

Not excited. Check out Ron Paul. He is causing a great deal of excitement.

Well, I'll look at him. I don't know very much about him. I just want to feel some passion about whomever I'm supporting. So far it's just not there. More research obviously needed though.
Just curious if anyone else felt same.

I think his quote here should bring passion to anybody,this is what I think American principles are all about.

I'm with you; I can't excited about any of them. Ron Paul looks like the best of the bunch, but I'm disturbed by all the nihilistic types who are backing him.

I am not too excited about the canidates, but just about anyone right now would be an improvment. However, Ron Paul does interest me, I like his loyalty to the Constitution.
