    I felt Hillary should have had Bernie as her VP if their egos would have let it happen. Not sure it would have. She won the popular vote by a wide margin. With Bernie alongside it might have worked.

    I got "Business Conservative", but the set of forcing questions was so, well, forced that it was sort of meaningless to answer many of them. Even though the instructions said "pick the one you agree most with", as I didn't agree with either of the potential answers, equally strongly for different reasons.

    Hilary was too tainted, IMO, by her long history. A lot of older Dems I know (45 and up) had a really bad taste in their mouth mouth from eveything that happened with Bill, etc. She just didn't connect with them. Seemed too cold and elistist. They much preferred Bernie.

    Next Generation Left here as well. Some of the questions were too black & white either/or. There was few, if any, options for middle ground.

    bae/Geila, I agree that the questions were often hard to answer and not that well constructed as a survey instrument. But, frankly, I thought I was having a hard time because it assumed I am comfortable with the whole system that exists. I was looking for entirely different options.

    No surprise that I also am a confirmed solid liberal.

    Probably just as accurate as the old eight ball ......but I came out a steadfast conservative.
