Let’s play “Guess That Politician!”

It’s the game in which I give you the answers that a select politician gave during an interview, and you guess who the politician is. Are you ready? Well, let’s play!
First question: America has lost a lot of friends because President George W. Bush angered, indeed outraged, them. He allowed human rights to be violated at Guantanamo Bay, and he dismissed the joint effort to combat global warming. Under a President [Myster Politician}, could we expect a change of course?
Mystery Politician: Yes. I would announce that we are not ever going to torture anyone held in American custody. I would announce that we were closing Guantanamo Bay and moving those prisoners to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and I would announce a commitment to addressing climate change and my dedication to a global agreement — but it has to include India and China.
Answer: A) Hillary Clinton; B) John Edwards; C) John McCain; D) Ron Paul
Second Question: Will America attempt to go it alone less frequently in the future?
Mystery Politician: Well, we all hope that America will be multilateral again in the future. There were times when the United States acted unilaterally, but I think we would all prefer to work in concert with our friends and allies.
Answer: A) Barack Obama; B) Hillary Clinton; C) Mike Huckabee; D) John McCain
Third Question: So is America coming back to renegotiate the Kyoto Protocol?
Mystery Politician: I believe America is going to enter into negotiations to try to reach a global agreement. But, as I said, that agreement must include India and China, two of the emerging economies of the world. We would be foolish not to do so.
Answer: A) Al Gore; B) John McCain; C) Dennis Kucinich; D) Hillary Clinton
