For the 2008 presidential election I would like to see former Mayor Giuliani go against Hillary Clinton.

Depending on their campaign platforms, I'd probably vote for Giuliani too.

I know it's a tradition for the Vice President of the outgoing administration to seek his party's nomination for the presidency, but I doubt Cheney will do it. Two reasons:

1. I don't think his ticker could take it.
2. Edgar Bergen never switched places with Charlie McCarthy.

My prediction for the '08 presidential race:

Democrat: Hillary
Republican: Jeb

I'll vote for Hillary, but I'll do it how l like to think most sane, reasonable Republicans voted for Dubya in '04: holding their noses while doing it. Jeb probably sees the Oval Office as his birthright.

Oh no, CC you really want to bring out the dark side of me don't you? cool.gif tongue.gif

I think Jeb/Hillary is a good prediction, although Hillary keeps insisting she will not run. I think she will. Condoleezza says she won't run either, and I have a stronger inclination to believe what she says, so I don't think she will run. If GW is any indication of Jeb's philosophy, and he runs against Hillary, the vote will be for a liberal anyway, so I'll stick with Jeb in the hopes that my beloved America might be represented closest to the way I see it (tongue way, deeply buried in cheek). However, Hillary does seem to see the wisdom in seeing the fight against terrorism to some sort of final conclusion....and that to her own expense in her party. However, I think to myself "she's a Clinton, how better to garner those fledgling or weary republican voters than to make yourself their ally."

To me, our country is more than ready for a female president, and there is no other woman I would more like to see there than Condoleezza. Honestly, I don't think it matters who would run against her either, I feel she would be a shoo in. I think she has poise, class, confidence, leadership ability, a tough chin, is unquestionably intelligent....she has it all. I think her skin color may work against her because I've heard her called the "whitest woman in Washington", but at the same time it would help the image of our nation having a black person in the top job. So I guess I'm saying Condoleezza v. Hillary, or Dean, or Ms. Pacman, Howdy-Doody, Jim Carrey, or anyone else on the planet....I vote for Rice.

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

There is only one MAN worthy of the job, John McCain. I wouldn't vote for Hillary if she was the ONLY person on the ballot, and I think the country has had enough Bushs to last for a LOOOOOOOOONG time to come!

Dr. Condoleeza Rice is the only one I can think of in either major party who is worth a tinker's dam,. If she runs she'll most likely get my vote. If she doesn't I'll vote for whatever libertarian runs and wish both major parties a happy hotdog roast in the deepest depths of hell.

If we keep voting the same way we've always voted we're gonna keep getting the same old B.S. we've always gotten.

Do I think I might be a bit disgusted with the endless escalating petty partisan bickering that passes for "government"?

Yep.

I don't think Jeb will do it because he's a Bush. However I think he'd be better then "W". He was nominated as being one of the best Governors in the Country and I have to agree. I've lived in Florida for 16 years and had Chiles for the first 8 and he was ok but I think Jeb has done an outstanding job as Gov.

Between Hilary and McCain, I choose McCain but I have a lot of problem with his stance on Gun rights. He's no friend of the NRA. Gun rights are a VERY important to me.

I don't think it's the right time for Hillary. She's doing a good job for us here in New York, and she needs to keep developing on that level for another term. Then maybe yes, IF she does develop that way. It's not clear to me she really has it.

There is McCain. He does not grab me personally, but he survived knowing when a change was in order and having the guts to make it, instead of fossilizing into partisan loyalty.

Jeb Bush is a moron. The GOP has to put up something better than that. Giuliani would be better, certainly he is smarter and more sophisticated, but I'm not fond of him (again, on a longstanding, pre-2001 New Yorker's basis). Condie Rice might do it, she is smart and has class, but I don't know how independent minded she is under fire -- she's been too much of a yes-person in this administration and I'm afraid I don't trust her to be the top banana with no one else above her (except a congress full of chalk-stripe suits).

On a lighter note.....I think Oprah should run. Probably a hundred reasons why not but she seems so much more honest, not to mention good willed.

Frankly, I've become extremely disillusioned with nearly everyone. The last person I saw in public office that I think has the courage and integrity for the job won't run-- Colin Powell.

why won't he run.....
1. He's got a brain and knows how to use it.
2. Isn't going to be any VP's puppet.




I'd like to see two people that have never run for anything above city government office go at it. It would be fresh, interesting, and hopefully not as predictable as the last 24 years have been

and if I can't have that I want Dogshirt and Stormeil to run for office...*nodnodnodnod*
