@driven, this is exactly how I feel, and I'll wager to say we have A LOT of company. Like about 70% of the electorate.  It's a long, LONG race.  It actually gives me a headache to think that this decision is more than a year away, but I think the tea leaves will move into MUCH more readable patterns by then.  Hope so at least!

Am I ready for President Romney? No.

Do I want to keep President Obama? No.

Guess that makes me undecided too.

President Romney...I just don't see it happening.  He has too many issues that the American voters are picky about.  I don't think he can be elected as President

The Onion has a headline this morning that gave me a chuckle:

"Mitt Romney's Goal To Connect With One Voter By The Time This Is All Over"

http://www.theonion.com/articles/mitt-romneys-goal-to-connect-with-one-voter-by-the,26432/

Maybe he could call it the 1:1:1 Plan--1 voter, 1 (voter who's also a taxpayer), 1 year.  What do we think?  Attainable?

Marvin, now most of the voters has realized that there were hardly any difference between the labour party and Democratic Party. More over most of the common peoples had lost trust in Obama’s government. May be Obama is a good person, but his vision and policy for US is not so good. Unemployment and economic slowdown degrades counties economical growth also.

The problem is that many votes take those personality qualities as the main reasons for voting for candidate A over B. The "I'd like to have a beer with him" factor. My feeling is that "average Joes" have been conditioned by manipulative campaign orchestrators to favor personality over more substantive qualities...or platforms.

Phil, I don't judge politicians in terms of their friendliness at all--in fact the LAST thing I'm looking for is a friend.  However, after the shortcomings of both Bush and Obama, I AM looking for the qualities of a true LEADER in the FDR mold.  Someone with vision and confidence but also the common touch.

I never expected Bush to have those qualities and didn't vote for him either time.  But I have been sorely disappointed by what I see as Obama's lack of not only vision but empathy and spine.

So, yes, I am looking for a president who will work for the people--the 99% as opposed to the 1%, but I'm factoring in his personality as manifested by personal qualities.  Such "little" things as knowing NOT to give a campaign speech using Power Point for starters...

It amazes me time & time agian how much a sense of "personality" makes a difference in people's perception. Isn't it about how politicians can help you & your best interest, not how friendly he/she appears to be...?

I am impressed with virtually nothing else about the Republican field, but I'm impressed with Romney's inflappability and "eyes on the prize" attitude.

The man has focus and goal orientation, I'll give him that.

A close friend of mine is a venture capitalist who has had significant dealings with him in past lives.  He SWEARS on a stack of Bibles that the man actually has a personality.

Seems to me that his strategy is to take a page from Survivor and Outwit, Outlast and Outplay his competition.  We could do worse.
