Who will run for president in 2008?

2008 will be an open seat election, with Cheney vowing not to run.

Will it be Rice vs Clinton?
Guiliani vs Kerry?

And who will represent the 3rd party?

It's a wide open field, it would seem, for potential candidates. On first glance, it would seem that the Democrats are lining up behind Hillary Clinton. Hillary, after all, has never really made her ambitions secret. She has never come out and said that she would not seek the Presidency. Instead, she has always skirted the question while leaving the door wide open. So, in my mind," target="_blank" class="postlink">Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Candidate for the Presidency in 2008.

The Republicans, it would seem, also have a wide-open field of candidates for the 2008 Presidential race. Because of the Iraq conflict, the tremendous unpopularity of the war will certainly make it difficult for any Republican candidate to win. However, it would be feasible that the American people might still choose a Republican President providing that he/she was a strong critic of President Bush. Several Republicans come to mind but one name seems to stand out -- John McCain

So, in my mind, the 2008 Presidential candidates will be Sen. Clinton (Dem) and Sen. McCain (Rep). Of course, this is still very early to be able to make absolute statements but, as it stands, these two Senators would appear to be the most likely candidates.

I'm predicting Hillary vs George Allen.

McCain is a whacko moderate and has very little love in the Republican party. Although Guiliani is considered a moderate, he may be a great choice for Allen's VP.

Hillary is the Republicans best asset. Whoever gets the Republican nod will beat her. I would even put my favorite candidate, Newt Gingrich up against her!
