Since Prop 8 got overturned anyway and whoever replaced Inhofe probably would be the most DINO DINO ever to DINO, none of the above.

I guess Hillary since that would have been roughly the same thing.

Let's say it's a generic Democrat.

The second is okay (it'd be the same, pretty much), but otherwise none.

I don't understand the Giuliani ticket answers. How is that different/what's the intention of OP? How can he be VP?

Who picked Pres. Palin?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

The first six.

And honestly, if Palin were "elected" president, I don't think she'd be as annoying as she is now. Remember, she was just dumb before the tea party was formed, which was when she became an attention whore.

This a weird question, anyway. Prop 8 is a fairly minor issue in the grand scheme of things and Jim Inhofe is just one Senator.

^^^ This.  There's no way a Dem elected in OK would survive 2014, and it'd be a horrible Dem that'd not vote with the party on anything.  As for Prop 8, it was overturned in relatively short order.

I think if Obama had lost, he'd be poised to be elected with close to 300 Representatives in the House.

I'm fairly amazed that folks would trade such minor political gain for denying 37,600,000 Californians their civil rights, even if they were "only" denied their civil rights for ... what, over 3 years and counting?

Really, what the eff would it matter, for example, if Giuliani was elected Vice President, a position whose occupant traditionally does nothing but do goofy things and get made fun of by late-night comedians for it?

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

Fair point. It occured to me that Giuliani as Vice-President (what a bizarre option!) wouldn't make any real difference, but this being a wormyguy poll I expect he's going to say something like "oh and also Obama resigns on inaugauration day" as soon as the poll closes.

In line with his usual polls, which generally take a format like this -

Would you support [reasonable-sounding policy]?

[poll ends]

The people saying that prop 8 was overturned are aware that it's still in effect, yes?

And there's absolutely no guarantee that it'll be overturned for good any time soon.

I know it's a gotcha poll, but gotcha polls are best to be ignored. Instead, you all just walked into this glass window face first.
