    That would be a nice ticket. I voted for Gore myself, I dare anyone to watch "An Inconvenient Truth" and not want him to be in the running.

    Funny thought though, wouldn't it be weird if we had a clinton/gore ticket again...could happen, or gore/clinton too.

    I chose Al Gore. He's come along way since 2000 in earning my respect (I voted for Nader that year :p ). Also, he's the only candidate (besides Obama) that I would fully support, rather than vote for solely because they have don't have an 'R' after their name. :p


    I completely agree.

    Obama. Without hesitation or reservation, and with 100% enthusiasm.

    He is the best candidate to come along with Robert Kennedy in 1968, and we've basically waited two generations of political candidates for another person of his ability to come along.

    This country desperately needs the injection of intelligence, charisma and common sense that he would provide.

    This is a big election for me, because it'll be the first election I'll be eligible to vote in. I'd like to see either Gore or Obama. Them running together would be even better.

    I like the idea of Gore / Obama.

    And as John Edwards is currently out of Office, perhaps with his legal background, he can be brought back into the fold as Attorney General? Would even add more to a dream ticket...

    Besides the whole monica Lewinski thing, he was a pretty good president.

    So where will Hillary get to put the cigars? Where the sun don't shine? o_O

    Dick Morris was on Fox News recently and said that if Hillary is elected, she will use the name / title President Rodham. What are your thoughts on that? Shouldn't she use Clinton, her married name, and the name she has used as a Senator?

    It's only a name, she can use either one or both for all I care. Would it change what she would stand for, or the level of quality in which she preforms the job? No. So what does it matter?

    There have been two Presidents named Adams, two Presidents named Bush, and two Presidents named Johnson. What's the problem?

    It would prove that she is a flip-flop ;)

    Hillary Rodham (Before she was married)
    Hillary Clinton (When Bill Clinton was first campaigning for President)
    Hillary Rodham-Clinton (After Bill Clinton was elected President)
    Hillary Clinton (When she was elected Senator)
    Hillary Rodham (if elected President)

    It doesn't really matter about Hillary.

    She'll never be President.

    This is not a good thing. Oh, hey, our guy is terrible, but at least their guy is worse? What kind of sense does that make? I don't care who gets elected as long as they were the best person for the job, not the lesser dunce.

    Hillary Clinton. That way, a Republican wins. [face_dancing]

    Seriously, though, the person I most like of those choices is Obama, but Hillary will just be too easy for the Grand Old Party.

    edit: I really should elaborate, however... my vote will depend on who the GOP decides upon, and all probability says they will choose someone I approve of. In this case and this case only, I want teh Hilarity standing at the other podium. But if not, I may vote Democrat in my first Presidential (and I hope it's not her).

    As of today, Evan Bayh has dropped out of the 2008 Presidential race.

    Out of all of the possible candidates, I would have to go with Barack Obama.

    Quoted For Truth.

    I'm honestly wondering if she is the actual "front-runner", or if the media is just making her out to be. It's absolutely not scientific, but I can't name more than five people who are enthusiastic about Hillary running for president, both online and personally. Majority of the people I've seen don't want her to run, either because they don't think she'd win or don't like her, while the others either like her a little, but have more favorable candidates in mind, or because they're a Democrat and as the Democrat nominee, would represent their ideals more than the Republican candidate (most likely). I've seen very, very few strong Hillary supporters - and yet the media is insisting that she's the favored candidate and such. It could be true, I don't know, I don't pay attention to front-runner polls this early because I think they're garbage, but who knows. Anyway, chances of her getting the nomination are slim, and if she does she won't win.

    I honestly can't see it being anyone other than Hillary.

    Clinton/Obama seems to me a likely scenario. It would appease most democrats and for those with concerns on Obama's experience, he has a powerful role and so long as Hilary isn't worse then Bush, he has a guarenteed spot for President after her term(s) end.
    But if Gore decides to run, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

    I went with Bayh, even though he's announced that he's not running. He's my senator and he's a bloody good one, IMO. Plus, not really impressed with any of the other candidates.

    I picked Obama. The US needs to be inspired again, and he seems like the guy to do it.

    But I'm not a US citizen, and so I'm irrelevant. :p
