I need to thank Justin Oldham and anyone else who contributed to the above thread much of the conclusions reached below aren't mine even if I agree
There is no way to seperate Bush from the war in Iraq.
Any Democrat who didn't vote for the war in Iraq may have an edge depending on who the Republicans nominate .
The war in Iraq is at the heart of any candidates campaign from a Republican perspective in order to get elected a candidate must speak out against
the war in Iraq and the Bush admin on some level. McCain has started to do this recently. The Republican spin machine will ensure that McCain wont be
seen by his supporters as a flip flop.
As for Rudy if Republicans aren't smart enough to nominate him then they don't deserve to win in 2008. The 2008 election is there for the Democrats
to lose which they may well do. Bear in mind that the Democrats wont have there anti Bush platform and being President consist of doing more then just
dealing with Iraq.
In the last seven years the Democrats have yet to define what they stand for so why would they start now ?
End of summary.
On a personal level I have more respect for those who stand by there decisions. Standing by the decision to support the war in Iraq wont attract any
Democrat voters or those who opposed the war from the outset. Politics is a sad game.
