Well, to me, it is two possible scenarios.

Assuming Bush 04 Win:

Republican: Condeleeza Rice (please god please)
Democrat: Hillary Clinton (shudder)

Assuming Kerry 04 Win:

Republican: Condeleeza Rice
Democrat: John Kerry

Post your predicitons and comments.

I don't think Rice would get the nomination. She is great on national security but is way too liberal on social issues. Maybe for VP but not for President. Same would hold true for Rudy Giuliani. A fairly good fiscal/foreign affairs conservative but way left on social issues.

If Bush wins in 2004 (which I expect will happen) then the field is wide open on both sides. It won't be Jeb as he has said on multiple occasions he does not want to be President, ever. Also, can you imagine the Democrats mantra in 2008 if Jeb ran for President? "Vote Democrat, Stop the Bush Monarchy/Dynasty".

One name I keep hearing floating around as a Republican candidate in 2008 is Colorado Governor Bill Owens but of course it is way to early to speculate.

On the Democrat side, it would be another wide open field. If 2004 is another close election like 2000, then Kerry could possibly run again. John Edwards and Al Gore are another possibilities but I would put my money on Hillary running in 2008. For that reason, I wouldn't be surprised if the Clintons try to torpedo Lurch's campaign sometime soon after the Democrat convention.

I think a good nominee would be Rudy Gulliani. I would vote for him.
And I would also vote Cheney for 08' if he doesn't die.

The guy I really want to see run for presiden in 2008 after George W. Bush serves out his second term is Rudy Guiliani. The way he brought back New York City after Dinkins destroyed it, is just amazing. Also he shows great leadership especially after 9-11-01.

People I also wouldn't mind seeing:

- Colin Powell (Secetary of State)
- Donald Rumsfield (Secretary of Defense)
- Joe Scarborough (Host of "Scarborough Country)
- George Pataki (New York Governor)
- Jeb Bush (Florida Governor)

L1011 - give the kid a break will ya?

I'd really hate seeing Rice or cheney or I hope nobody else with a last name of Bush ever takes office ever again.

I wouldn't mind seeing Superfly in office. He'd get some stuff done. How's about running for SF mayor first buddy? That'd be great.



I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.

I think, if Bush gets re-elected this year, it won't matter who the GOP throws out, because I think Bush will have so messed up the nation by then, that the GOP won't stand a chance.

And I don't think in that scenario that Hillary would win, much as the GOP misses the Clinton's. I think John Edwards would be the nominee, and I think in '08 he'd win.

And Yanksn4, after this Bush, there will NEVER be another Bush as President in our lifetime, so you can forget Jeb ever sitting in 1600 Pennsylvania as anything but a visitor.  Big grin

Alpha1:

I don't know about that Alpha1. Keep you eye out on Noelle Bush.
If the American voters are stupid enough to give Dubya another term, I see no reason why Noelle couldn't get elected.

America went for a second bush after they rejected the first, who knows just how many bushs will get elected?

the thought of cheney or rumsfield as president is enough to even send a shiver down the spine of conversative voters like me.They are more right wing than bush.

Heres a thought? How about Jed Barlett?

Alpha One may be right, Bush may win and it may be a giant c@@k up of global proportions meaning a republican wouldnt get elected. In that case I would go for Rice, a black republican women as presidental hopeful would send the cat flying amongst the pidegons, it would spilt the black vote, it would spilt women and further more if she is more liberal than bush it would capture some of the independents.Lets face it real hard democrats wouldnt vote for a republican in a million years. Conversative republicans when faced between Rice and a democrat are always going to vote republican.the two hard line parts of the party will vote no matter what even if they dont like the candiate.Put it anohter way, Rices hardest task would be getting nominated, if she got nomainted then i reckon she would win.

Go Canada, despite all the fawning on this board for Condi Rice, I'll tell you right now, the stampeding you'd hear would be of white southern males leaving the GOP in droves if they choose a black female as their standard bearer.

My prediction is that Hillary will run in 2008 if Kerry does not win this year. I, of course, will not vote for her, but she is free to run if she wants to.

I would love to see Colin Powell run for something. I would even contribute to the campaign!

In '00, I would have voted for Powell. I won't vote for him now, after he's tied himself so closely to this extremists administration. He's lost a ton of credibility in my eyes.

I really doubt that HRC can win the nomination. Though she'll carry tremendous support in CA and NY (obviously two extremely important states because of their financial support and electoral muscle), I don't think she'll play well throughout the rest of the country.

Her socialized medicine proposal will come back to bite her.

Her best strategy has to be to amass a war chest large enough to scare off any potential competitors within the democratic party.

27 TYSGoVols : Bill Frist that would be awesome. The fourth president from this great state. He has been an amazing congressman. Bill Jenkins hasn't been to bad eith
28 SK901 : Wesley Clark as democratic president, or Rudolph Giuliani as republican.
29 Chi-town : Lets worry about the election this November first.....
30 MD-90 : Giuliani wouldn't be bad, but I personally don't know much about him, since he really was involved in politics before I paid any attention. btw I live
31 TYSGoVols : Yeah between the narrow roads and the every continuing road construction, barrels have just been moved around since 1980 or there about. Just wait I-4
32 Yanksn4 : MD-90, if you want to learn more about Rudolph Guiliani, I suggest you read his book, "Leadership." I have read it and it tells all about himself and
