I've long held that if Hillary is on the ticket, the GOP will HAVE to run a woman in the POTUS or VPOTUS slot. If the GOP runs two mem against Hillary, they're gonners - though I'm not sure Hillary can win the nomination.
Remember the "invading her space" outcry after the Senatorial debates.

In many Dem's eyes, she won it this year. She will win the nomination, if she runs, with little or no difficulty whatsoever, unfortunately.
Guiliani is way too progressive for the GOP, I can't see the conservative base of the party supporting him.
Powell is burned out, big time.
I think McCain might be too old by then, not sure.
Laura Bush vs. Hillary Clinton....there you go! Laura would win overwhelmingly. Either way you have that, George W. Bush or Bill Clinton would be back in the White House. Ok...maybe not such a good idea anymore.

I'd bet on Rudy Giuliani, but other possibilities include Condoleezza Rice, John McCain, former MT Gov. and RNC Chariman Marc Racicot, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MA Gov. Mitt Romney, NY Gov. George Pataki, or CA Gov. Ahhnold Schwarzenegger (Constitutional Amendment notwithstanding).
I wish Bush would have dumped Cheney for one of the above. Cheney brings nothing to the ticket, is loaded with political baggage, and will leave a vacuum in 2008. It's too late now, though.

Let's not forget Alan Keyes (sp?) the black republican running for Senate in IL. Perhaps part of the incentive package to get him to run against Obama (in what is almost certain to be a loosing effort) was to give him a chance at the VP slot in 2008. A little color on the GOP ticket would be very attractive from an electoral stand point.
If the democrats don't carry 90%+ percent of the black vote, it opens up a lot of traditionally democratic states for GOP contention.

Then you are uneducated.
Haha, what is that supposed to mean Gigneil? Every educated person must like Hilary?
With this ignorant statement of yours along with others that you've said recently (like "In recent months, Bush has not held a single poll over Kerry"), YOU are the one who seems to be lacking education my friend.

I heard a radio interview with Jeb yesterday saying that he's got no interest in national politics. In the interview he said that he wasn't going to the RNC because there was disaster work to be done back in FL.
I'll bet anyone that Jeb isn't on the GOP ticket in '08

Some of the recent press I read mentioned Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee as the GOP's choice for a possible 2008 run. However, the same article mentioned that his lackluster (could you possible say uninspiring) leadership in the Senate has tarnished his image in the minds of the movers and shakers in the GOP, thus leaving the party without an heir apparent for 2008. And let us not forget that the last Senator to go from the Senate directly to the White House was John F. Kennedy. That doesn't bode well for Frist (or Kerry for that matter) if history is any kind of indicator.
Always a pallbearer, never a corpse.
25 N6376m: A former Senator from TN - oh man. History doesn't bode well for someone with those credentials.
