The reason you have seen NO Rice in the news lately is that they want no negative association with she and the 'canes whatsoever.

Her Thighness and his Suitness can't pull it off. This is just a trial balloon for the DNC. I wonder often if Powell still isn't also in play for '08 - but am beleaguered that he could go either party!.

America elects Governors. Rick Perry (who irritates us as W did as we have to actually LIVE with them here in Austin, even though we support them) is, I believe, about to bust out once the DeLay thing gets settled.

Then again, Schwartzenegger could roar up next year.

I love Tancredo, but he's probably VP material at best.

Jeb can't do anything until the Bush-hate goes away: that'll never happen.

Rudy has a great shot, particularly if Condi saddles up with him.

So, my call is either Perry/Condi or Rudy/Condi '08.

I suspect voter will fail to remember his correct name and call him Barack Osama. Voters might refuse to vote for Obama because he reminds them of Osama bin Laudin.

How can anyone take your prognostications seriously, when you predict Schwarzenegger as a potential presidential candidate in 08?

That's what Ted Kennedy called him.

I'm not seeing how a person who has never ran for public office before is a good choice for the national ticket.

Rice is real popular here when it comes to this kind of talk, and I have no idea why (well, I do, though it might be impolite to say). Nobody knows her views, how sound her political judgment is, or really anything at all that would merit this storm of support. Hell, the fact that she's never been married ought to be a big clue that she's not exactly a whiz at selling herself.

And yet a hefty contingent of freepers are ready to anoint this cipher.

Is what I said. Doubt it will happen, but you can't count him out.

People have to ask do we really want same old same old. It is time for new people to run for president.

I think the Katrina shakeout will dent the rats rather severely, and I think once the news cycle of this spins out, Perry will land some major kudos.

Conservatives know we're going up against the voodoo queen herself this time around, and now is no time to be experimental with our primaries.

I have a nagging feeling Powell is up for grabs, and if it winds up Hill/Powell, then nothing short of Rudy/Rice can shut that down.

You do know they'd have to amend the Constitution to allow Schwarzenegger to run for President?

LOL.

And it took over 100 posts, before someone came up with this little gem. ;)

What is it w? ILLinois and socialists, both are from there. The last time a white woman and a black man were left to do a job, OJ went free.

If she picks the joker with the terrorist sounding name, she'd be guaranteed her home state of Illinois. And then she'd get New Yawk...that's two solid "blue" states she could win so far...

Whats your point. The democrats could run Osama Bin Laden, and Saddam Insane and win NY and Illnois. This ticket really doesn't scare me much (Clintoon and Obama), because it really doesn't capture the portion of the voters that voted for Bush. Just my humble opinion, but this proposed ticket scares the swing voters out there....

Hillery will likely have an old Iowa congressman by herself the entire trip through Iowa to ensure support. Otherwise, she couldn't carry the state during the runoffs.

The thing that SHOULD scare you is a McCain running as an Independent. This guys crazy and a first-class pr_ck to boot. He'd do it just to p_ss-off Senate conservatives.

She would also benefit with his additional name association to other great world class leaders such as President Chiluba, President Kabila, President Bizimungu and President Obasanjo ;-)
