We Can Sleep Knowing This....

Hillary is all but gone for her 2008 presidential bid. Newsmax.com reports that she trails in a poll (she received on 8%, down 2 points from June) taken by the Daily Kos liberal based weblog. Good. Good stuff. I won't wake up screaming tonight in a cold sweat...

On the bad side, Wesley Clark is out in front with 34%... The battle continues.

Rush thinks AlGore's going for it, too.

Kerry, Gore, HRC--all in there. But HRC has the most money unless Heinz antes up a few hundred million, which she will NOT do.

HRC has not yet begun to fight. If you seriously think she'll get creamed in the primaries, you're nuts.

Resume sleeplessness.

I heard about AlGore today. I really don't think he stands a chance...

At last DCS we agree with one another.

I don't know who I would vote for in 2008 but here is who I DON't want:

Hiliary Clinton
John Kerry
John Edwards
Al Gore
Joe Biden
Dick Cheney
Jeb Bush
Bill Frist

What do you guys/gals think of John McCaine? I personally have always kind of liked and would consider voting for him.

Is he popular at all with Republicans these days or no?

McCain is certainly NOT popular with conservatives--ergo, he won't get through the primaries on the Pubbie ticket.

Rush also announced that McPain is meeting with Cindy Sheehan...

That means McPain's going third-party, which should make life interesting for all of us.

McCain is a strange, scarey little man....and definitely STUCK ON STUPID.

Well, that answers that.

So who are you guys/gals backing or is still too soon?

Are you on the Fred Thompson bandwagon?

I like him on Law&Order...If he is the same way as President I could deal with that.

I feel Mr. Thompson has great potential for being elected president and has a few strong "selling points."

For starters from what I gather, he is quite a stern Republican that even helped John Roberts through the judicial nomination process. His senate run in TN(?)was also extremely successful.

Secondly, he'll appeal to his core audience that potentially are swing voters and 'non-party affiliates.' His acting might give him the extra advantage that he'll need considering his potential competition.

This presidential election will bring out alot of new faces to the forefront, not to mention some 'veterans' as well.

The Democrats will have a lot of initial contenders from...

Clinton
Edwards
Kerry
Feingold

While the Republicans will have...

Frist
McCain
Thompson

-Don't expect to see Jeb on the ticket until at least '12. He wants his last name to cool down a bit before the dynasty is complete.

Thompson may be OK--there's little out there now regarding his positions on issues...

Some conservatives like George Allen, senator from Virginia.

It's interesting to read this passionate discourse on your politics. Up here, the electorate tends to more often "speak quietly and carry a big stick," often resisting commenting too publicly until the election and then declaring themselves openly through the vote. Your last couple of elections too have been fascinating, given the paper-thin margins and the fierce fight over the deciding slivers. Federal politics almost always seem to shift from one majority back and forth, 2 terms or 3 terms - Liberal Party of Canada, then 2 terms - Federal Conservatives. My University History professor (who held dual citizenship) always said he thought that the US (given it's size, power and demographic make-up) might better be served by adopting a parliamentary democracy model. (I didn't think it would ever take as Americans essentially pioneered the Federal Republicanism.) Has there ever been a notable movement in the US to shift from one democratic government system to another?

IIRC, we fought and won a WAR against a "parliamentary democracy."

Why the hell would we take that back?

Seriously, however--even though the Supreme Court, Congress, and the President seem to believe differently, the US is a confederation of States.

Parl/Democracy works only where there are no real States' rights.

Poli, there is no way that "Heeeerees Johnny" will get anywhere on the republican ticket.

If he runs third party, the dems and the repubs will both have to step it up to court undecided voters to make it.

My wife and I are still pulling for Cheney. Let an adult run the government.

I lose sleep when I say the words, "President Feingold."

Chaney is a good guy with more health problems than we can count.

Yes Yes! Finally someone with some sense!

Cheney '08 is the only way we can further the NeoConservative Doctrine of keeping the United States globally dominant in the 21st century.

Finally someone who gets it. The rest of the people here with the exception perhaps of NeoConTastic don't get it.

I am sure you are aware of the PNAC and know that Cheney is a member. But just in case, here is the link.

Yes! Cheney 08'! Yes!

That is the only way to go.

PNAC Statement of Principles...Dick Cheney is a member of the PNAC



Excellent!
