You know, I’d be more likely to vote for an atheist, esp if I thought they qualified, because I know they would keep Church and State separate, but at the same time, since I know most Episcopalians feel the same way, I’d for them if I thought they qualified. So, it’s not so much for me based on religion, but whether or not I think they will follow the Constitution, play by the rules, and qualifies. I think, even though Obama is a Christian, he would keep Church and State separate. I also think he is qualified too. I don’t think much of Hillary. Although, she may have lost the election if enough Fundies heard her “offensive” language recently. It went something like “How do we win against the bitch”. I thought it was funny. She’s still in third place for me. Gravel, maybe. I know he would definitely keep the Religious Reich out of office or at least try. He’s my second choice.
Although, if my sons were younger and needed a sitter, which was asked else where, my choices some how change a little. I’d choose Obama to watch my sons first. He would understand them more than anyone and I know that he would not teach them any racist or bigotted B.S. Hilary would be second, because she believes that it takes a village to raise a child and I know she would not hurt them, at least not physically, due to her “no spanking” laws she tried so hard to enact. Gravel, well he just could not keep up with my sons (even when they were little). I don’t think grandpa has the stamina to keep up with the young. I don’t trust any of the others any further than I could throw, which isn’t at all. The question was supposedly all about trust and well, even though I trust Gravel, I’m afraid he might not be able to keep up very well- when it comes to kids at least. Now as president, that maybe another story.
