I like Ron Paul. Mostly because he seems to be in favor of fiscal responsibility and the government minding its own business. Though he'll never get the nomination. I could live with Huckabee, though I do wish he'd get himself a slightly larger worldview. On the Democrat side, I'd be ok with either Clinton or Obama (though at this point my preference is still for Clinton). I can't stand Edwards. He's like a liberal George W. Bush. He doesn't engage with the world as it is, he engages with the world as he imagines it to be. Eight years of that has been more than enough, thank you. I've hated Romney since he was in charge of the Salt Lake City Olympics. His time in Massachussetts did nothing to change my mind about him. He's another one I'll never vote for in a million years.

I really liked Chris Dodd. It's a shame he never got any traction.

Are you bothered by Ron Paul's racism? I've found some of the things he's said just startlingly bigoted. Some examples at http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/5/15/124912/740.

No more than I'm bothered by Obama's claim to be opposed to gay marriage on religious grounds while being a member of the UCC. Honestly, I've never been completely happy with anyone I've ever voted for. There's a lot I'm willing to overlook (and have overlooked) if I think a person will do a decent job. Or at least a better job than the other guy.

Fair enough. And I'm in total agreement with your icon!
