 In the vice-presidential debate, the Republican candidate showed some poise, while the Democrat lapped around his heels like a deranged Chihuahua. The Republican candidate is the only one showing presidential potential. 

Since the next president will be appointing one or more members to the Supreme Court, I believe a conservative candidate is the best choice. Voting for a Libertarian or Green Party candidate, deserving as they may be, would be wasting my vote.
