2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz
I'm only surprised that Huckabee scored so low and Giuliani and Paul scored so high. I'm also surprised that Clinton scored so high. I would put her only slightly above Richardson. I think the quiz is biased toward social issues which I tend to care about less than economic ones.

First, the Whole Foods scandal. This touches a nerve with me because it's exactly the person who my good friend who went from anarchist to "moral capitalist" in three years was defending as a righteous and moral character who has an entrepreneurial instinct. "I've met John Mackey, and I know he cares deeply about vegetarianism and the environment." Well, apparently he cares more about corporate acquisition.
Second, the gifting of public lands to a development corporation in DC's West End. Because we all need more condos and fewer libraries, right? And the public's opinion is irrelevant for this type of "emergency measure". I'm going to this meeting tonight to hear what's going on. I'm kinda happy to be getting involved with local politics again since that's really where most change happens.
