Time for some polling! In the weeks to come we’ll be launching a series of polls in which we put a potential candidate for the 2008 election and Bill Gates in a head-to-head position. We realize we’re putting Bill up there without him even expressing any of his views on what his political choices would be, but the reason that’s not stopping us from starting these polls is simple: we believe in Bill’s rational choices and his ability to make the right decisions.
Senator John McCain of Arizona will be the first one to be tested against Gates. John McCain has emerged as the early front-runner for the Republican nomination. He stands for conservatism, or as he put it to the Washington Post, “My record is the same on all issues, which is that of a conservative Republican. Not a liberal Republican. Not a moderate Republican.” You can find more info on Senator McCain on the John McCain 2008, The Exploratory Committee website, Wikipedia or John McCain on the Issues.
We’re curious about which way this will sway… That means it’s time to make your pick ladies and gents, McCain or Gates?
