Who's Getting Your Vote?

Better late than never.

Various writers and celebrities - mostly but not exclusively libertarian, were asked how they intended to vote, who they voted for in 2000, their most embarrassing vote, and their favorite President.

It takes a libertarian magazine for Calvin Coolidge and Grover Cleveland to frequently pop up as favorite Presidents.

But the best response was from Jesse Walker:

Favorite president: It would have to be one of those practically powerless presidents who served under the Articles of Confederation -- maybe the anti-federalist Richard Henry Lee, chief of the Continental Congress from 1784 to 1785, who helped launch the American Revolution, tried to ban the importation of slaves, fought to include a Bill of Rights in the Constitution, and sang the goofiest song in 1776.
