Just thought it might be fun to do a little prognosticating.

It's too hard to predict the winner of the Democratic primary, thus too hard predicting the answer  Tongue

I will do everything in my power (vote!) to prevent another clinton in the whitehouse.

It appears taht all the contenders are on the democratic side. Clinton, barak, edwards etc.  Who is a front runner for the republicans?

There is zero chance of a woman winning the presidency right now.  Running Hillary up there is the absolute worst thing the democrats could do.

We are screwed no matter who wins from the two major parties.   There are so few real differences between them a third party is what I will be voting for again.

My guess is that it is someone who we aren't thinking is going to run yet.  Not sure who'll be coming in from the Republican side -- McCain is too old to actually win (he'd be the oldest person taking office ever), Gulliani and Romney are both too far towards the middle to get the nod.  Democrats aren't stupid enough to put Hillary up for the nomination since she'd lose to a magic 8 ball, Obama is too inexperienced, Edwards is Edwards...

My official prediction.  George W. Bush declares the results of the 2000 election null and void, the Supreme Court agrees.  Since he's now only actually been elected once, he runs for a third time and wins... 

Hey, at least with my prediction I know I'll be wrong.  Probably.

Barack Obama.

Obama is my senator (and I voted for him), and I honestly can't say I've seen or heard anything from him which makes him worthy of any of this hype.  Honestly, if he had a challenger in the Senate primaries who seemed more proactive, I would probably vote for them.

Thus far, IMO, his biggest claim to fame is actually winning against a guy who had sex with Jeri Ryan.

I'd like to see Ralph Nader, Dennis Kucinich, or Tom Tancredo pull through. (See I'm open-minded, an independent, a democrat, and a republican! I'm happy with all of them.)

Of course, in all reality, it'll probably be someone like John McCain winning so that Dubya's legacy of policing the world continues.
Hilary and Obama maybe in an election down the road, but definitely not in '08.

Well, Ryan is her married name.  I think the lucky dawg was Jack Ryan.

Running against him must have been all like "Damn, that guy is hittin' Jeri Ryan.  Winning a Senate seat should be trivial by comparison..."

One comment about the race was hilarious: they said he was probably the only political candidate brought down by a sex scandal involving sex with his own wife.

I will oppose Eddie X and have Lockdown as my running mate.

I predict we cruise in the primary and pull into the oval office with 57% of the vote over Eddie and whatever clown he chooses to take on me and my clown.

Although we will have a strong PSP and sports platform, we can appeal to the DS/RPG crowd by presenting our background of buying games we knew we'd hate anyway.

Nobody.. I repeat NOBODY can be worse than Bush.  If we elected a albanian midget retard, we'd have had a better outcome of the last few years.

Anyway, I see an Edwards/Obama ticket in 2009.

I would be surprised if Hillary runs.  But she may be thinking the exact sentiment expressed by Kobra, and view 2008 as her best (only?) chance.

I'm also curious if Obama is actually going to run: he may be content with Senate... but then again, he may want to run while his star power is going strong (such things are fickle, so who knows how long it will last).

Trust me, if I thought I c ould pull together the money and not get killed while running...I'd run.  I'll be old enough in 2007. 

But I'd piss off too many people, and someone would kill me.

I heard a funny radio bit about that - they actually asked people what they thought of Obama and about 50% thought they meant Osama. 

Remember, a high percentage of adults don't actually watch any national news.

Short, but scary interesting.

EDIT: The reason Obama is so popular is because of his books.  He's been on Oprah talking about it...a big hit with the Book Club.

I'm gonna guess John Edwards. I'd vote for Obama in a heartbeat.
I don't think the country is ready for a female president so Clinton is out. Plus Barack Obama needs to change his name because it is too close to Osama, and CNN had serveral people tell the camera that we must put Barack Obama away because he is a threat to the country (mistaking him for bin Laden).

John Edwards and *small prayer* McCain as his VP. IT COULD HAPPEN tear
