Currently I can't think of anyone, as in nobody who I think would be good and stand a chance of winning, because if they don't win it's kind of pointless. I know that's kind of sad but I have lost all faith in the Democrat and Republican parties. Anyone outside of them stands zero chance of winning because the country is not ready for thinking outside the box yet. I think disaster has to strike before people will be willing to do so. Even Ross Perot with all of his rabid followers in 1992 could only muster 19% of the vote. One thing I liked about that election was that it was pretty entertaining and it kind of threw a monkey wrench in the 2 party system for awhile.

Anyone, whether you think they'd get elected or not. I'm mostly just trying to get a picture of who you identify as an ideal candidate (not on vote-garnering grounds).

I don't identify with the Repub or Demo parties either.

Whether you voted for Obama or Romney, I think we can all agree that Fox News's implosion over Obama winning is just plain fun to watch.

I don't watch Fox News or MSNBC. They sensationalize everything, and put a unbalanced spin on everything. I go to CNN, BBC, or Al Jazeera for my news.

Well put it this way, I voted for Gary Johnson. After a lifetime of being conservative and voting mostly Republican, occasionally voting for a Democrat if they weren't whack jobs, I came to the conclusion that I just want the government out of my life as much as possible, and neither party really stands for that. Now if some libertarian comes along with ideas like Gary Johnson, but with some personality and drive to really go out there and push his or her way into the picture, that would excite me.

All the other people outside of politics who have been talked about as being contenders don't impress me much. I would never vote for Donald Trump for example because the only reason he would want to be president is so he can make a reality show out of it. Grandstanding is not needed, new ideas and the fortitude to push them through Congress are.

Another thing I would like to see is someone as president who actually can take criticism and has some accountability for his or her own mistakes. A disturbing trend I've seen that started with Bush and has been taken to the extreme with Obama, is the refusal to do press conferences. I think Obama has had 1 or 2 all year, and probably less than a dozen his entire first term. Instead he just goes on shows like 60 Minutes or talks to NBC, where he knows they won't press him on tough questions. I want to see the president have the screws put to him like Clinton got, and see how he handles it instead of hiding behind cushy one on one interviews.

Very interesting response, Bear. Our political inclinations align almost completely. I believe(d) that Gary Johnson would have made a better president, and certainly better represented my beliefs, but voted for Romney because I felt he had a better shot at defeating Obama (which of course he did). At the end of the day, I'm a bit embarrassed of how I voted.

I hate this system.

CNN is usually my choice, but you just knew fox news was going to go crazy over this one.

I'm not too fond of the system myself either because it's too closed off. Since the 2 parties control all the laws, they make it very hard for other parties to even get on ballots. The media also poopoos other parties and tries to marginalize them. I'm in my 40s and tired of voting for the lesser of 2 evils. I want to vote for a non evil and see him or her actually win someday.

In my case it didn't matter how I voted anyway because being from New York my vote is thrown out. This state always goes Democrat in the presidential races (last time they didn't was 1984) and I refuse to vote Democrat because it's just spend, spend, spend, with no thought given to all the debt we're amassing. The Republican party has become a joke in the last 20 years and doesn't even stand for much of anything anymore except for being Democrat lite. I might as well just vote for Mickey Mouse for all the good it would do in this state.

By the way, fun fact, New York State is projected to have a $1 billion deficit next year despite being the highest taxed state in the country (counting all types of taxes). We surpassed New Jersey this year to become 50th on the tax friendly state list, hooray! We're winner!

I didn't give it an ounce of thought, actually. I kind of feel like the "oh, Fox News is so silly" joke is pretty played out.

It is widely speculated that his concession speech was practically impromptu (he didn't write a concession speech beforehand).

Most never think that they are going to lose the election. I am sure Gore and Kerry and even McCain were just as surprised. Studies have also shown that most presidents have sociopathic tendencies.

Here's another fun fact 7600 idiots voted Rosanne Barr for president. What was her top campaign issue ? Legalizing marjauana. I wonder how many of those votes came from VGF members ? Sad day.

I guess the communists voted for her. She has said she is a communist and not afraid of telling people that.
