Its so easy for us to complain about the candidates. Let's face it, we love complaining. Let's do something different. On this thread, list the positive aspects of your candidate of choice, or any candidate for that matter. What do you like about them? Let's keep it civil and nice.

I like Ron Paul. His message is extremely important at this time. I think he's very relevant. Hopefully more people will hear what he has to say.

Mitt Romney is definitely purdy! He sounds very intelligent and dignified. Definitely looks and sounds the part.

I like Ron Paul's honest approach even when I disagree with him on the method of fixing our problems.

I like that Rudy is not going to be the nominee.

I think Sen. Obama is a great speaker, plus he's clean and articulate

I like Mrs. Clinton's utter absence of guile. She is honest, straightforward, and candid. Her core beliefs, though difficult to ascertain, must be deeply held. She only weeps when she is losing, and only prevaricates when she pontificates.

Here's my opinion.
I like Ron Paul's ideas. I like how he has the nerve to stand up and speak about unpopular ideas.

I love Obama's charisma and hopefulness. It's nice to look forward to something better after the last 7 years.

Mitt Romney speaks clearly and has nice hair.

John McCain can kick any dictator's behind. He appears honest, candid, and open about himself. He is a survivor and an American hero.

Mike Huckabee has a great sense of humor. I like his populist leanings, even if I do hear "Dueling Banjos" every time I see him.

John Edwards speaks to my bleeding heart side. Finally, a candidate who listens to the little guy!

Rudy Guliani was a rallying point after 9/11.

Hillary Clinton brought the issue of health care into the national spotlight. She must have an amazing ability to forgive transgressions of her hubby.

Hillary - the woman's got balls
Obama - eloquent speaker, crossover appeal, intelligence, "does the right thing"
Edwards - seems to really care about helping the poor

Romney - smart with money, looks like a President, fatherly, also a good speaker
McCain - experience?
Ron Paul - he's my favorite so I like everything about him.

And I don't have to do Giuliani or Huckabee because they're going to drop out and I don't like anything about them anyway.
