  1. Signed,

    John Q. 'I'm not looking to have a drinking buddy as President' Public
  2. define John Q?

    if you can

    are YOU John Q? Public :)
  3. Let's presume I am.

    Color me a perfectly average stereotype of what an 'American' is.

    Will I want to elect the most intelligent and capable person to high office, or someone who I believe conforms the closest to me, my lifestyle, my interests, and my capabilities?
  4. Smart people may be very corrupt or bad as well --- look at Saakashvili in Georgia, although the guy seems very neurotic.
  5. It is quite sad the backgrounds of the 2 finalist for POTUS.Just as sad that every election you have to chose from the best of the worst
  6. It seems that a fair number of Americans place considerable importance on voting for the candidate who watches the same game shows as they do.
