DaddyBear, fellow blogger and friend to Miss D. and myself in both cyber- and meatspace, has come up with a series of questions for political candidates wanting his vote. He has five blog segments up (so far) with parts of his questionnaire:
I think they're great! The only difficulty with them is that they're clearly compiled from a more conservative or right-wing perspective. I'd love to see someone like Earthbound Misfit do something similar from a progressive or left-wing perspective, and combine them (and other contributions) into a non-partisan candidate rating system. If all candidates, of whatever political persuasion, could be made to honestly answer questions like these, we'd all be better informed come election day.
