Your ideal US Presidential Candidate...

Whether you're American or not, there's a (subjective) way to find out what would be your ideal candidate, by answering 25 simple questions over at SelectSmart.com. From their write up:

This selector features over two dozen names of announced candidates and politicians considered by pundits to be possible White House contenders. You may select a position for every issue, or just select those issues important to you. The candidates' positions are based upon their voting records, special interest group ratings and the candidates' statements in the public record. In cases where a would-be president has no known public record or statement on an issue, they are not given a score, which tends to reward candidates who take stands on more issues. Also candidates for president who take consistent and stronger stands tend to get higher scores. All the candidates and/or their staffs were written to and given an opportunity to clarify or correct their views as characterized here.

My own results:

1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%)
2. Dennis Kucinich (90%)
3. Barack Obama (86%)
4. Christopher Dodd (83%)
5. Hillary Clinton (79%)
6. John Edwards (79%)
7. Joseph Biden (76%)
8. Wesley Clark (75%)
9. Al Gore (72%)
11. Alan Augustson (67%)
12. Mike Gravel (65%)
13. Ron Paul (48%)
14. Kent McManigal (43%)
15. Elaine Brown (41%)
16. Rudolph Giuliani (35%)
17. John McCain (33%)
18. Mitt Romney (29%)
19. Mike Huckabee (27%)
20. Chuck Hagel (25%)
21. Tommy Thompson (23%)
22. Sam Brownback (20%)
23. Tom Tancredo (20%)
24. Newt Gingrich (17%)
25. Fred Thompson (12%)
26. Duncan Hunter (12%)
27. Jim Gilmore (8%)
