Barring anything crazy happening...who do you think will be the next President elected after Obama is done? And by that I mean...when Obama is finished as President...who will be the next in line? I'm not asking about him getting re-elected.....

I don't think it will be a Democrat...it will most likely be a Republican...I wish it was neither but we can't seem to break the 2 party stranglehold on the country. The economy is going to get worse....and the Democrats will be in complete control the entire time and the american people will continue to get more angry about the deficit...even though much of it was GIVEN to them under the last 8 years of Bush.

My Prediction....

Huckabee.

Why?

Because he can speak and tell a good story. I don't think it's a a coincidence that he has his own show on Fox News. He's being touted and gets to speak to an audience for an hour each week....far more exposure than anyone else in the Republican Party....he's a former Baptist minister and seems awfully strong in his religious beliefs...but then again...not many Republicans aren't nowadays. That is the one thing that scares me the most about the GOP. The bible has to much correlation with the middle east and Israel....this fact alone bothers me and I feel it would cloud someone's decision making..including his..when it comes to foreign matters.

Btw...I'm not supporting him to be President...just making a wild prediction as the world will be a much different place in 2012 or 2016.

What is your Prediction..and why?

I dont think it will be Obama. He has broken his promise to the middle and lower classes who elected him. We wanted a more socialist approach and instead we are getting facism.

I think we elect an independent next time around. Someone of the ilk of Jessie Ventura who is willing to fight for the right things no matter who attempts to make him fail. Anti-establishment and protectionism will be the winning platforms.

I would vote for a Huckabee administration.

Huckabee says it like it is without a superiority tone. He is smart and from what I have seen an all around good guy. I am actually hoping he runs in 2012 as I think he would be the only one who would have a chance at beating Obama.

But those who hate Fox News will hold it against him that he has a show on that network and base their vote against him for that reason. The same way they voted against McCain simply because he was a Republican.

I would kill to have Ventura as President and Nugent as Vice President. That would be my ultimate dream ticket.

But in reality that would never even be discussed so I will go with my first pick.

I'm keeping my eye on South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. Firm supporter of limited government, opposed stimulus package for his state, even though he got overturned. After 4 years of Obama, a physical conservative like Sanford will have a great shot.

As much as I would love to see Bobby Jindal or Sarah Palin in the top spot, the demonization of them by the media and Democrats have ruined that for them. Both will definately still have a huge influence on the party though.

It will be whoever is chosen by the puppeteers as someone easy to control.

Bush had the mental capacity of a deck of cards. Easy sway. Not to mention his Dad being one of the old guard.

Obama was the perfect race, age and appearance for what they needed next. A real 'people person' to repair some of the faith lost during the Bush years. I'm sure they probably used his family against him or something, or at least let him be naive enough to think he won fairly until they broke the news to him.

/opinion.

I predict it will be Obama in the next election. Never count out a man with ACORN on his side. There is probably a good chance he was elected by a bunch of corpses this time, so why not do what works.

I'm just making a "realistic" prediction. Who knows...maybe there will be a new guy to come out of nowhere with an impeccable record.

An ideal president...at least for me...is to...

1. Uphold the Constitution.
2. Fix Health care.
3. Repeal Nafta.
4. End the War.
5. Make the Federal Reserve transparent.
6. Make government and big business smaller.
7. Enforce anti-trust laws.
8. Protect the borders.
9. Make their administration as transparent as possible.
10. Support individual liberties to ALL legal citizens....man or woman and being blind to color. As much freedom and equality that can be had under our system...without doing it unconstitutionally.
11. Balance the budget.
12. BE HONEST.

Yeah...that's a tall order and it will never happen....it's nice to dream though.

Well, I'll just beat all the end timers to this and say Bill Clinton, the Anti Christ.

Though seriously? Who after Obama? On a long shot if we're lucky, Ron Paul.
But my guess is that it will be a republican.

Ron Paul will be old to be a serious contender for the Presidency.

I don't understand how people can't see that. Granted he has some good ideas, but he simply is to old. That is why I can never understand everyone getting on his bandwagon all of a sudden.

Place your bets on another horse, this one is going to be put to pasture soon.

It won't be Ron Paul....I love the message he conveys though. His son is a possibility. He's running for Senate I believe.

Mark Sanford is making a name for himself as well...as rrConservative stated.

I'd prefer someone who is not heavily religious....I don't know if Mark Sanford is or not.

I truly think it's dangerous to have someone like that as President...especially with the tensions in the world right now due to religion/race.

But if we are all trying to pick who we would like for the next President, then I vote for Bill Gates and/or Steve Ballmer. They know how to build a good management team and how to handle money the right way. Plus, Bill has gotten a bit more tame and compassionate in his old age.

Seriously? It can't be a democrat. Really. But I don't see a republican on the horizon. The next president will totally be out of the box, sort of like Obama. He/She will be out of the blue. Hopefully it will be a Libertarian candidate, or another "hand grendade with ears", as Ross Perot was made fun of by the MSM. Heh. He came close, didn't he?

I am so tired of the repub/demo crap. I was raised on this crap, just like anybody who is alive in the U.S. today.

I would rather we had a situation where there are many parties, many representatives with many peoples supporting them, and the VP elected separately from the president. Oh, that's a step back in time to the "founding fathers". Oopps! My bad. Too old fashioned, eh?

I would suggest people pay very close attention to Newt Gingrich.
VERY close attention indeed.

As of all 3rd parties in the history of the United States one of the main parties hijack the growing 3rd party and the Libertarian Party has been growing significantly, naturally the party in trouble (Republicans) are hijacking the movement. Just like the Democrats hijacked the populist movement in the late 1890's. I would say Ron Paul, but he's getting old and is a little to extreme for some people. Sarah Palin might have a chance, but I would have to say Huckabee or Romney are more likely. The Right Wing definitely needs to distance itself from some of these religious extremists, and white supremacist people. Which in my opinion aren't even Right Wingers, but Fascists, unfortunately MSM and Liberals don't see it that way.

Palin. Why? Big hooters and delusional,
just like bush. Cept for the hooter part.
Remember she can see russia from there,
so who better to make our president?
She shoots like cheney. Good to go.
The pendulum will swing again I'm afraid.
Either way....MORE of the same.(more for them, less for us)
IMO of course. Good to hear from you David!
Always good stuff.....

I got green money that says Hillary will take the prize hands down as the GOP fragments into two parties with the Fundy's/Rush on one side and the Goldwater repubs on the other. This rift can't be repaired as it gets wider by the minute.

why would anybody want to elect a republican...they have put this country 20 years behind by their pro-wealthy policies. they don't give a damn about the middle class or poor and never have. a socialist government would be a welcome relief from the "screw everybody but the wealthy" regime.
