Gray Davis is a Democrat I am pretty sure. I don't know about Wellstone.
I think there will be a runoff for the Dem nomination between Davis and Clinton...Clinton will probably win and it will be a close race between her (with VP candidate Gore) and Dubya (if he was a good prez) or some other GOP candidate (if he wasnt).

I hope Hillary runs, she would win by a land slide for two reasons:
She would be the first woman, everybody wants a woman president, since it would be the first.
Every likes Hillary for the most part, right?
So she should run.
Al Gore woudln't win, everybody got mad after this whole recount thing and he would quit the race, he woudln't have a chance.

G W. is the GOP President and he will be up for re-election in 2004. Therefore the GOP will not find another candidate to run against him.
Republicans tend to be more loyal to there leaders more than more progressive parties.
Paul Wellstone is my favorite but he would be percieved as too liberal by the right-wing media and the corporate pigs who control the media.
Hillary Clinton I like because conservatives would have a fit if or when she wins.
Al Gore embarassed himself too much in this last election.
Gray Davis, our closet republican but registered Democratic gov. has a very broad appeal, no enemies and can win in large states and attract moderate GOP voters.

A gawsh, I'm a democrat, and the thought of Hilary running for office scares me, she's annoying as hell, and in my opinion wouldn't stand much of a chance. Oh well, just my opinion. She's better than Buchannan I suppose, and bush :-P.

Derek, not everyone likes Hillary, and there is no chance in HELL she would win in a land slide. Of Superfly's choices, I would have to support Gray Davis, but this guy can't figure out how to get enough electricity to Northern California, so I really don't want to see him in charge of the U.S., closet Rep. or not.
Speaking of embarassment, everytime you make one of your one sided comments against Bush, your the one who embarasses himself We're Nuts.

Does anyone fancy the chances of Christine Todd Whitman (recently confirmed as EPA head)? I'd be surprised if she wins the Republican Party Nomination, given her views on abortion and the environment. However, if she was nominated, I think she'd be a boon for the Republican party, swaying a lot of people with conservative economic ideas who vote for the Demos purely due to matters of social policy. I think Ms. Whitman could really sway a lot of female votes. Of course, if Buchanan or another ultra-conservative gains any steam, things might not look so rosy for her. We could have the same "spoiler effect" that was demonstrated with Nader in 2000, which obviously backfired for those who are strong Democrats. On the whole, Nader and Gore received considerably more votes than Bush and Buchanan.

Just slightly off topic, but what happened to all those actors and other crazy left-wing people who said they would leave the country if Bush won? Have they left? Anybody know?
If Hillary were to run and win in 2004 (highly unlikely) I think I'd leave the country!
Also, how is it that Texas oilmen are at fault regarding the current power problems in California? Aren't all the environmentalists at fault here? Afterall, they are the ones who have all been lobbying against the building of electric-generating facilities in California, causing more dependence on electricity from Washington and Oregon.

Okay WN, thats like saying everytime N312RC posts, he is just stating he facts as well. Gore embarrassed himself just as much as Bush did, if not more so, yet you FAIL to mention this. Hmmmm.
Brissie, you sould like a combination of a little girl and an old lady. All you do is bitch. If you don't like fucking boring American Politics, don't read the freaking thread. Surely someone of your intelligence can figure that one out.

Gray Davis is a democrat, I am not sure if any one said that before, I just read a few of the replys. With the whole power crisis we are having I am not tooo impressed, but hopefully he will fix it up, soon.

Honestly, I don't see how the power crisis is the fault of Gray Davis. He was Lieutenant Governor at the time Deregulation was implemented in 1996. I believe California was the first state to implement a program after the FERC decision. Anyway, I don't think Mr. Davis had much of anything to do with the decision to deregulate California, although to be honest, I'm not sure. There's only so much he can do to get us out of it.
So, far I haven't decided how good a job he's doing. But, it certainly isn't as easy as some of you make it out to be.

All of those names send shivers down my spine. Mr. Bush outlined a pretty good plan last night. Lets see if he can put it into action. It looks like some of you people have the so-called Daschlegephardt disease. The dems sounded so phony last night.
Anyways, Bush is becomimg more natural in his speaking.
