The AP is reporting
that several people, including John Edwards, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain are kind of, sort of in the spotlight for the 2008 Presidential election. But who is a realistic candidate? Edwards? Maybe. His "good Southern boy" appeal is irresistible but the RNC is going to blow him eight ways from Sunday with their idiotic "frivolous lawsuit" crap. Next up is Barbara Boxer, a good choice. She's compassionately liberal and compassion is a winning game. However, one must beg the question, "is she ready?" Who the hell knows! Now Hillary Clinton is always good idea! Other than having an already large group of "Hillary haters", she has certainly got a chance and might be a shoe-in for candidacy. The next name is a weird one...it's John McCain, the Republican Party's greatest moderate. How could he win? The Republicans wouldn't go for it (he's not conservative enough) and he would have to join the DNC now to get nominated for the Democratic candidate in 2100. One name not on the list is Barack Obama. I think he would make a great candidate with the exception of having a little less experience than preferred. What do you think?
