    I voted no because I really don't see it happening, after the Ferraro thing fizzeled for Mondale presidential candidates are going to be very careful about running with a woman again.

            Hello,

            The minute Hillary Clinton runs as either vice-presidential running mate or presidential candidate, it's all but over for America. It's not that she is a woman, but a liberal, socialist, hatemonger, and hell-bent on making America a puppet of the United Nations.

            There is no way Republicans will allow Hillary to win at national level. It's disgusting that she won as a senator of New York. Better keep her away from the presidency or even vice-presidency.

              Maybe, but, she's got a rep for being a control freak so I'm not sure that Kerry wants to put up with her.

                  President Bush would just love if Kerry picked HC to be his running partner.

                  But Kerry is unlikely to oblige. Seriously though Clinton might run in 2008 if Bush wins again.

                  If I were to call it now I would say Bush will win in November but Kerry will put in a very respectable showing for the Democrats.

                  Bush hasn't really launched his campaign yet and he has some serious money to spend with probably more on the way.
                  The US forces in Iraq are likely to in effect be off the streets there in the weeks leading up to the election so that will help. If OBL is pulled in that would be a boost too.

                  Also the President has a lot of political largess at his disposal which can be dispensed in the right quarters to help get the vote out for him.

                  The US economy is doing well overall. I know some will dispute this but it's the feel good factor amongst those who will actually go out and vote that counts, not those who stay at home and moan. ( It's like that here too!)

                  So Bush is on for Four More Years ( now where did I hear that one before?)

                    I think Hillary, while she might be chomping at the bit, will wait this one out. If Bush is re-elected who will follow him in '08'? Cheney, not likely and I certinly hope not. But then this leaves it an open race IMHO since the Republicans won't have a suitable heir to follow Bush. That is when HC can maximize her chances.

                      Very good post. I'd like to add the DNC might not be ready to take back the White House. It is going through an identity crisis. Some want to expand upon the positives they feel the Clinton Legacy creates. Others want to purge him from the DNC. The Primaries also illustrated disarray within the party. Howard Dean gave Democratic leaders fits when he threatened to wage "a guerilla war" by staying in the race no matter the results. I believe the party turned on Dean to push him out.

                      Right now, things in Iraq appear to be stable. Casualties figures are on the decline. The resistance seems to be focusing more on starting a civil war, which could deflect accountability. People hear about a "handover" and pull backs, and interpret them as signs of improvement. (May or maynot be.)

                          Most states are either going for Bush or Kerry. Between 40-45 of them are very solid one way or the other already. Selecting Hillary wouldn't help at all in the states that are up for grabs. If a women is selected, it will be someone like Mary Landrieu from Louisiana but don't count on it.
