Since I oddly haven't taken him yet, I'll be Mitt Romney. Smiley

Kathleen Sebelius

Sebelius wasn't a candidate in 2008.

Anyway, I'll obviously play as Mike Huckabee. I know that my friend tmthforu94 (who is playing as Romney) hates him (very irrationally), so I have no choice but to be his arch-nemesis in this race Wink So, I'll play as Mike.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

I know. She was, however, talked about as a possible candidate, and was a serious contender for the VP nomination. So, I think it's all right. Wink

I'm going to go ahead and get this out of the way now, Officepark....

Anything directed by me towards you and your character during this gameplay are not personal. You're still a great friend of mine regardless. Smiley I just wanted to clear the air because I know this will get ugly. Wink

No, I don't think Sebelius was ever seen as a candidate, even potentially. She was seen as a potential running mate, but that's like letting someone play as Sarah Palin just because she ended up McCain's running mate.

Well, Sebelius was much more well known than Plain pre-2008, but, besides, how about let electoraljew decide?

Warner(was a heavy potential candidate) and Huckabee and Tancredo are good.

Sebelius was a somewhat potential candidate in 2008. You could use her, but I would suggest you pick another person for the sake of pissing alot of people off. You can still use her if there's no one else that you'll play as. It's your deciscion.

I'll wait to open the gameplay thread till tomorrow, because generally most people stop joining once the game has started.

He thought about it!

Why don't you losen up a bit on who can enter the race? I feel like you're trying to make this as realistic as possible which will only end up like how 2008 really did :p

I agree. Just because they're running doesn't mean that they'll win.
