Included any candidate who got more than 5 delegate count.

I was ineligible at the time, but I would vote for Barack Obama.

Probably Huckabee, but 2008 seemed loaded at the time. Anyone to stop Romney except perhaps Fred Thompson or Hillary unless they were a last line of defense.
I would have enthusiastically voted for any of the following:
1. Huckabee
2. Edwards   
3. McCain
4. Paul
5. Obama

All of them have seriously declined since that time sadly. If this were today, I guess Paul perhaps?

Clinton.

Skeptical of Obama, and distrusting of Edwards.

Um, Huckabee and Edwards were polar opposites of each other...especially in 2008, with Edwards running on his pro-Daily Kos line of thought.

I imagine I would've been swept up in the young activist Obama tide, had I been eligible.

At the time, Obama. In hindsight, probably Kucinich.

I initially supported Ron Paul in 2007, before taking an American history class and realizing that libertarianism is garbage and that identifying with a Republican made me sick to my stomach because I'm from a family of union Democrats.

After that (and a heavy dose of A People's History of the United States), I started supporting Mike Gravel, although I also liked Dennis Kucinich. As the field narrowed, I backed John Edwards (I remember buying campaign buttons of his and being really invested in him as the only populist candidate in the race; plus his being endorsed by the USW, my dad's union, really raised him in my eyes) and then when Edwards exited, I decided to support Barack Obama, because there was no way in hell I was going to support Hillary for President. I did actually attend two Hillary rallies in 2008, mostly to say that I had done so, but never ended up going for her, because holy f**k I could never live with myself if I supported her for President.

I wasn't old enough to vote in 2008 (thank god), but if I had been, I'd have almost certainly voted for Obama in the 2008 Democratic Party primary here in Kentucky. I'm glad I don't have that to look back in regret on, although unfortunately I have a vote for Obama in 2012 that I cringe at every time I remember it. I'm never voting for another Democrat.

Well, abuse of testosterone would explain Elizabeth's temper.
