    Today it looks like Hillary has a 'lock' on Democrat nomination, but that is not a sure thing. Regardless of your politics, who would you like to see run in 2008? What issues are the most important to you?

    Newt Gingrich, Condi, and/or George Allen.

    Any of those would be great... for the Dems. :teeth:

    I'd like to see Ed Rendell or Joe Biden. I know the right would LOVE Hillary to have the nomination, but she's far too divisive a candidate and the right's biggest fantasy.

    No. He pretended he was a moderate. And, btw, he didn't win the popular vote in 2000, remember? ;)

    I would like to see Condi elected, not because I believe in her policies but because I would like to see a woman and a black in that position. She may also be a good president. She's certainly more exceptional than most or all of the candidates we've put up lately. If she's elected then we don't have to hear any more crap about women and blacks being disenfranchised. Besides that I can definitely look at an listen to her on TV, whereas if Hillary is elected I will flush my TV down the toilet, or do a Keith Moon and toss it out of a hotel room. Hillary's voice is like the sound of Boy George thrown into a prison cell with a bunch of horny lifers or Helen Keller taking her first violin lesson.

    Yawn. Bill Clinton never won a majority of the popular vote. Dubya did in 2004.

    I would like to see her elected primarily for her foreign policy. Her being a woman and being black are secondary.

    Actually every recount, including NY Times showed different, but you can search for the info, I'm done with that. ;)
