2008 woes...already!Posted Tuesday, July 17, 2007, at 3:56 PM
Man. It just doesn't seem like we ever get a break from this stuff.
Here we are, still a year and a half out from the next Presidential election and I'm already sick of listening to politicians speak bull-babble that comes out of their mouths.
Since Hillary and Obama decided they needed at least 14 months to make a statement before primaries roll around then it doesn't look like we have a choice.
The interesting thing is that I have no good educated guess as to where this is going to go.
As far as the Democrats go, I think we're obviously looking at either Obama or Hillary. Hopefully not Hillary, there's just something about that woman I don't trust. Much like her husband, I think she's a good politician. Good politician=bad for the people.
Obama seems to be a likable enough guy and seems more sincere than some, but I don't know if he's well-known enough on a long-term level to do the job.
The Republicans have a very out of the ordinary bunch this round. Rudi Guiliani, likable guy but brings along some minor scandalous baggage. His forward stance during the 9-11 attacks I feel give him an interesting edge.
Mitt Romney? If this is the best the GOP has to offer then it's time to pack it up. Small-town America Republican supporters will never elect a Mormon President. The belief that all Mormon's are polygamists is still pretty strong.
Fred Thompson? Not technically in the race, but that could soon change. He does have star appeal and political experience, but first we have to see if he enters the game.
Polls are showing some mixed results, but several candidates haven't been brought into account yet.
What do you guys think? Is America ready to accept a black man, a white woman or a Mormon President? Your guess is as good as mine.
