I can't imagine Cheney will be the guy. What kind of legacy will Bush II leave?

I'd vote for McCain. How about a ticket of McCain and Colin Powell?

The guy I want, Newt, probably won't do it

Then that settles it. I'll just vote against Hillary.

I hope McCain is 6 feet under before the next election. He should have died when he was in the service because he has been killing us ever since.

that would be an absolute slam dunk....but I would like it Powell/McCain if that was the case.

That would be the dream ticket for me. I really like both of them.

One step at a time. I don't know how many people would have a problem with a black POTUS, much less a VP.

I know Rudy G. is a social liberal, but he's a real hard-ass on the WOT, my No. 1 issue. I'd give him a close look.

Sure, if you're talking about hot oil wrestling and you can make Hillary 40 years younger.

I just hope we never see a woman in charge, not trying to be sexist or anything that is just my opinion. Powell/Ashcroft would be my choice. That is stronger than McCain, he sided a little too much with the democrats for some Republicians.

I think of him as a thoughtful and intelligent man, I think of him as a military man with leadership skills and integrity, I think of him as a man who will speak out when it is appropriate and take one for the team when it looks necessary, but I worry that there are too many people who won't look past the color of his skin.

If a party can come up with someone who appeals to both sides they will have a great chance in '08. Otherwise we will get another very close election.

If people want a real movement toward the issues, I would still say Frist. A little right of the moderate, but as a former surgeon and long time owner of the largest hospital chain in the US, this is the single man in Congress who could pass a legitimate legislation to even out medical costs.

Bill Frist - EIGHT MORE YEARS!!!!Having a president from Tennessee would be pretty cool. Especially since he's not an uber-douche like Gore (and he's also actually from TN, as opposed to that asshat).

On that note, I could also dig Harold Ford, Jr. as the prez.

Using that I would like to see Ashcroft. He is from Missouri.

I can't imagine that the Dems would put their eggs in that basket. She does not have the broad appeal of her old man.

Should she become the nominee, the Dems won't see the Presidency for another 8 years.

It wouldn't surprise me to see her VPing in the next election. Imagine the woman turnout without the risk of her policies hurting the real nominee

PLay second fiddle? Not a chance.

Russ, there was an interesting short interview with Brokaw talking to former Sen George Mitchell.

Brokaw mentioned that the Dem strategy of "Win the east coast, win the west coast, but ignore the middle has proved to be flawed strategy. What can be done?"

Mitchell had no answers.

Just imagine the difference if he had actually asked the rural people what they were looking for in the close states he lost instead of telling the urbans what they wanted to hear in the self-same states.

Yeah i cant possibly seeing them doing that either. If they want some hope of winning they should find a more centralist candidante...and someone that doesnt strike eveyone as a complete bitch.

The Midwest and South believe to strongly against two major Democrat plat forums - abortion and gays.
