The Spectator is right: the Dems are playing for 2008...so who do WE want to run in 2008

OK, gang.

Barring a catastrophe or another 9/11 attack, it's pretty much a given that President Bush will be re-elected in just under 10 months from today. That's been already listed here on FR today. And Jay Currie has a VERY good point. The Dems KNOW they've already lost this election, and are using it to position for 2008 and, God Help Us, Hillary.

Who do we have / want who is in position to run for the Republican nomination in 2008 ???

Given that President Bush would want to have his successor continue his policies, who you all of you think is a worthy successor to George W. Bush, and our best defense against the Hildebeast ???

"our best defense against the Hildebeast ???...."

That would be for Rudy to kick her A$$ in the '06 NY Senate race, then the only Klintoon we would ever have to fear would be Chelsea!

I'm leaning in the direction of Condy Rice. Takes all the wind out of the Dem's sails for running the first serious female candidate. "Oh, yeah, well ours is black, too.."
Not to mention that she is truly brilliant.

Colorado Governor Bill Owens! He signed a bill barring instate tuition for Illegal Immigrants, he barred the state of COlorado from accepting Matricular Consular cards, and he has vowed to sign a bill to ban Affirmative action in Colorado universities!

I think Haley Barbour, the new Gov. of Mississippi could make a good run. Might even be a pretty good President.

Jeb isn't interested in running and he's sort of squishy on Illegal Immigration.
