How many of you had your decision about who to vote for in tomorrow's election swayed by the animal rights history or views of the candidates?

Usually a candidates view on animal rights are not brought up, but I do look at their viewpoint on Climate change, the environment, the endangered species list, etc. If they have respect for those things I would hope they would feel favorably toward attempts to improve life for animals in other ways. And regarding the earlier comment on Sarah Palin. I knew who she was before McCain picked her. She is NO friend to animals of the environment and you don't have to do a lot of research to find that out. She was not set up, her record speaks for itself. I, for one, am very glad that she won't play a national role in our environment policy. She has done enough damage to Alaska.

Animal "rights" are the furthest from my mind when I made my decision about who to vote for. Presidents don't impact animal rights or welfare.

If you check the facts, it's clear that the obviously biased reporting about Sarah Palin's disregard for animal welfare was a politcal ploy to sway the animal loving sector of the population away from McCain.

I let my God-given concience tell me how to vote.

I vote my conscience based on what I honestly believe the candidates will do once elected.

Went early to push my buttons and the line was enormous---took about an hour before I actually voted--the flaming liberal ticket, of course..

Now really I'm also not one to really cast my vote on here but even though McCain has all those animal hom much quality time and attention could he possibly be giving them. Sure He has them but do they feel loved??? I didn't even really hear anything about animal rights from either party.

I don't know if this has any bearing with animal lovers, but John McCain has fourteen dogs, six cats, two turtles, three birds, fourteen fish and a ferret. Obama has no pets. I know who I am voting for.

I believe that Ralph Nader's views are most in synch with mine, and although I don't specifically remember him articulating a position on animal rights, I'm almost certain it would be a good one.

oops sorry, didn't read it right. it's late. in my opinion, there are so many issues. the ecomony, health care, jobs, Taxes. Just living in this country is getting tough on everyone.I must say, the animal rights. wasn't the highest on my list, when picking a president. I worry more for the families, who houses are being florclosed , and can no longer keep their pets. I worry about people buying food, instead of getting their pets shots. This is just my opinion. please don't take it wrong
