Interesting question.

Figure that with Bush's reelection, the democrats are going to run Hillary.

Maybe McCain might make another run for it.

I'm hoping that in 2008 when I get to vote in my first presidential election that Rudy Guiliani is running for president and Governor George Pataki is his running mate.

How about Guilani for President, and Colin Powell for VP?

though I think he would make a great POTUS or VPOTUS I don't see Powell running I think that the last 4 years have really turned him off to National politics.

I have to agree on Powell, I don't think he wants the job.

That being said, he would be a strong canidate.

Could you imagine a Powell/Rice republican ticket in 08

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.

Let's just hope for a credible Republican candidate, because that's what the US needs.

Kerry for 2004, and a credible Republican for 2008.

Is there a big difference between Guilani and McCain? Don't know much about these two guys... Any other possible candidates?

I'm on board the Mitt Romney 2008 train...I like him as a candidate, and he's been raising his exposure nationally a lot this past year.

I wouldn't mind seeing Guiliani though...

I think the GOP's best choice would be John McCain. I'm a Democrat and I would even give voting for him a second thought.  Big grin

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.

Romney...hmmm, possibly!

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.  Insane

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.

I would hope it's Rudy Giuliani.

I like this guy a lot, he seems to be very intelligent, he works hard, he likes to get things done and not just talk about them, and he's an overall stand-up guy.

About Hilary,

I can't believe such a stupid bitch would have the possibility of winning, it makes me sick and very disappointed with some of my fellow Americans who would even consider voting for a person like her.

I would rather Kerry win this election and be president for 8 years than to think of Hilary in 4. That makes me feel sick.

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 had heard that Jeb Bush, current Gov. of Florida was going to run in 2008. God help us all if ANOTHER Bush makes it into the White House.

Bush has made them DAMAGED GOODS.......they use to be credible but then they followed the Cheney/Bush/Rove mantra of Decieve....Distort.....Deny and Divert......they lost respect...

Besides Kerry will be on his 2nd Term and the economy will be in a positve recovery mode........and you L188 will be very happy....

Jeb has said he will not run in 2008. He doesn't want the job.

I find it interesting how many conservatives want a RINO like Rudy, Romney, or Pataki. I'd rather see them run for the Senate and knock out people like Kerry, Kennedy, Hillary, or Chucky.

One name that has come out more than once is the current governor of Colorado, Bill Owens.

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.
