Place your bets....

2008 is heading our way quickly....and the US (and the rest of the world...who unfortuantely has no say in the matter!) has to go looking for a new leader...


and here is the starter's list.

and who would you choose from this list?
I lean toward
Bill Richardson/John McCain/ and Wesley Clark - they seem like they could lead and make decisions under pressure.

If it's from the list, it's once again a lose lose situation. Just once I would love to vote for the best person, instead of the lesser of two evils.

Forget lists. Republican nominees are always from a short list of those whose turn it is. Thus John McCain. Democrats I'm not so sure about. But it matters not. John McCain will be our next President. I say this as objective as I can be. For those who don't like Republicans, Senator McCain will be a one-termer.

Peri: My choice would be Hillary, but unfortunately (and this is not my personal opinion) I think that her biggest handicap is her husband

Seven Seas: But it wouldn't be the US elections if the choice of candidates was perfect!

Fred: I shall remember your prediction!

Scorpy: I agree, it would make for an interesting change.

People who pick Hillary do not understand US politics. She may win the nomination, but she will lose in the math of the electoral college. That's what makes it interesting and sad.

Hillary is a polarizing figure. People hate her worse than they hate her husband. In fact I forgive her husband for the whole Lewinsky thing because he is married to Hillary. Got to get some somewhere, cause its pretty sure there is none being given up at home! :-).

John McCain is the only good guy on that list. For the rest......LOSERS!
