Any thoughts ?? Who would you like the next President to be ?? Who is in the running ?? I haven't seen much in the media ,and I'm curious who it might be . Personally I'd like to see a less confrontational President who could bring the West back together again ,especially with Canada's soon to be Conservative (I hope ) government .
Don't know, don't care. In exchange for the right to vote for an executive once every four years, I'd like the right not to think about it for three. There's almost no way to accuratly predict who will even run in 08, so why bother?
Could be Rudy versus Hillary or Santorum versus Pelosi for all we know.

I think it is too early to tell. While Sen. Hillary Clinton seems to be the prime canidate of the Democrats, there is a long time until the election and already the attack dogs are out to hurt her before the election. While she has made some acknowlegement to the moderates, she would still keep Abortion totally legal, and keep other hard core liberal 'values'. Here reputation as a 'liberal' would continue. Also, I suspect the country isn't ready yet for a woman as President especially the wife of a former President whom had the sexual morals of an alley cat and destroyed his creditability.
The Repbulicans seem to be unsure of whom to push for 2008. There are some good possible canidates, but they need the opportunity to get out there. Republicans currently control most state governments and have gained a huge following with their 'high morals and low taxes' matra, something hard to beat.
We don't know what will happen in the next 3 years. Iraq, Iran, Afganistan, oil problem, economic problems, social security, the potential battles over Federal Court appointments or - God forbid - another 9/11 event all could hurt or help any canidate.
