Deedle Murray  - Cheyenne Caon Music teacher - If the election were today, who'd get your vote? -  Either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. I love - their progressive messages, and I'm unequivocally pro- - choice. But as much as I'd love to see a woman in the - White House, I lean a bit toward Obama. I have concerns - that, nationally, Hillary may be a little polarizing. -  - Who'll get the GOP nomination?[John] - McCain is probably the front-runner. I can't see [Mitt] - Romney getting it. [Rudy] Giuliani will eventually piss off - the conservative right, and he has some issues in the - closet. -  - What's the most important issue for you?  -  Separation of church and state. -  - Name an overplayed or bogus issue. Gay - marriage. I don't see why we get our feathers so ruffled - about something that's none of our business.

    If the election were today, who'd get your vote?
    Either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. I love their progressive messages, and I'm unequivocally pro- choice. But as much as I'd love to see a woman in the White House, I lean a bit toward Obama. I have concerns that, nationally, Hillary may be a little polarizing.

    Who'll get the GOP nomination?
    [John] McCain is probably the front-runner. I can't see [Mitt] Romney getting it. [Rudy] Giuliani will eventually piss off the conservative right, and he has some issues in the closet.

    What's the most important issue for you?
    Separation of church and state.

    Name an overplayed or bogus issue.
    Gay marriage. I don't see why we get our feathers so ruffled about something that's none of our business.

I don't like any of the - candidates so far. -  - Which candidate do you like least? - Hillary. She doesn't have a backbone. She puts on this - "strong woman" front, but it's a fraud. It's a vibe I get. -  - What is the most important issue this election cycle? -  - The war in Iraq. We have thousands of soldiers over - there who don't want to be there and who shouldn't be - there in the first place. -  - If you were running, what would your platform be? -  - Bring the boys home.
