Bush,______ 2004

Sun Dec 15, 2002 4:03 pm

Before we know it elections will be happening again. Who do you think should run/want to run with Bush in 2004? I personally would like to see Elizabeth Dole as his running mate. I don't think that Cheney should be it because of his health. Also, who do you think/ who do you want to run against him?

Kerry would be nice, though Edwards is probably more electable. Either will make a wonderful replacement.

Personally, I think a Kerry/Edwards ticket would compete real nicely with a Bush/Whoever ticket. I see that whoever as being Cheney. They won't kick him out because of his health, though I think E. Dole would make a good veep for Bush.
Edwards is a great politician, and would make a great president, but he isn't known very well. Pair him with Kerry and things would get interesting. Time did a poll a while back....only like 3% of the American people knew who Edwards was, compared to 30-40 or so who knew Kerry. Then again, if I remember correctly, something like 40% didn't know who Gore was, so the poll may not be correct.
Heck, even Al Gore has been doing some talk shows lately. He has loosened up quite a bit, and is actually a pretty funny and interesting guy. I think he could definately put up a(nother) fight against Dubya.
Fact is, either would make a great president, imho.

Elizabeth Dole would be good. Condi Rice would be a great running mate...she could bring in some of the black vote.

I think Condi Rice would have a good shot at the White House herself one day.

Liddy Dole just won the Senate seat, and I bet she would want to run for President in 2008. So, count her out in 2004 on a Veep ticket.
Condi Rice is not a politician, although if she did run with Bush, it would make for a formidable ticket.

I don't see our friend Dick going anywhere. Dick and Bush - they're a pair.

I believe the opposite, at least right now. Kerry has highter qualifications on both foreign and domestic policy than a more green John Edwards. Kerry will be the early front-runner for the Dems.

As for Bush, he says he's sticking with Cheney. Politically, having someone like Elizabeth Dole on the ticket would give the GOP an advantage among women voters. But Bush believes in being loyal to his people, and unless Cheney gives him reason, Bush won't shun him aside.

Don't get me wrong, I love Kerry, but those Southern Democrats always seem to have a way with winning. We shall see. Maybe they could run together.

Dr. Strangelove - that way if Bush destroys the world we can survive via promiscuous relationships thanks to a 10-1 female to male ratio in underground mine shafts.

Had Strom Thurmond been elected President in 1948 we wouldn't be havin' all these damn problems now!  Laugh out loud  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Big grin  Smile

Just kidding! Big grin


Why would Bushman replace his President?


Liddy Dole will be too damn old and old looking in 2008.


...she could bring in some of the black vote.


Will NOT happen. Bushman would be lucky if he even gets more than 10% of the Black vote.



Dick should stay in Bush in 2004.

Lets give Condi Rice (and Powell) some credit. They have never used their race to entice Black voters to the GOP, nor have they used their race to exonerate the actions of racists within their party. I refer to Rice and Powell rebuffing Trent Lott when he shamelessly approached them to validate him after his recent round of Southern fried political flatulence.

I haven't heard about that. I'll read up more about that one.
Congrats to them for doing so.

Looks like it's going to be Penn/Baldwin on the Dem ticket.

Cheney's health concerns may push him from the ticket in '04. Prior to 9/11/01, the odds on favorite would have been Colin Powell; afterwards, Rudy Guiliani emerged as a potential replacement for Cheney, as did George Pataki. Some people back during the 2000 race thought that Bush was going to select Christy Todd Whitman as a running mate, so perhaps someone like Sen. Dole could be considered as well. One could argue that the only reason why Bush picked Cheney as his running mate was that he needed a strong running mate to help him get the push to get into the White House. As for opponents in '04, Kerry became the frontrunner when Gore said he wasn't going to run, and he does seem to be the choice, because some of the other candidates predicted to run have lost some of their luster due to the Democratic debacle back in November. As for third parties, I seen the Greens running Ralph Nader again, the Libertarians may try to run Harry Browne again, and word is that the Socialists are trying to get Cynthia McKinney (ex Rep. from GA) to run if she doesn't try to run on the Green ticket (or if she doesn't try to regain the seat she lost this year). No telling who the Reform Party might try to run, since Pat Buchannan has retired from running for public office, so we might see Ross Perot try once again.

I just hope That Bush doesn't win again, I mean....the guy (from what I heard) is a nice guy, but in my opinion, he's not president-worthy...
I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.
