Phil Bredesen (D) who was governor of Tennessee.  I’m a conservative voter, but Governor Bredesen did a lot for the state. I moved to Tennesee FOR work.. And I attribute a lot of that to his leadership.

@anemonie:  Agreed! Condolezza Rice is a brilliant woman, and women are under represented in the government.  I don’t agree with her on the majority of views, but I absolutley respect her drive and intellect!

I’m a liberal Democrat, and I respect John McCain. Sarah Palin aside, I thought he ran a respectable Presidential campaign and I certainly respect and appreciate all of the work that he has done to try to implement campaign finance reform.

I respect Colin Powell. He seems like a guy who goes with his gut and moral compass on issues instead of what’s popular in his party.

Ron Paul. I think he’s nutso with his policies but he seems like a really genuine guy, and he’s one of the only politicians I can think of who never waivers from his viewpoints, no matter what is popular.
