And here's January for y'all!

January 1, 2007 - The Carter campaign is on air in Iowa, with an ad humorously entitled Young Jimbo. The ad depicts Carter splitting a block of wood in two with his bare hands. The much-parodied ad serves its purpose, however, and significantly deflates concerns about Carter's age.

January 3, 2007 - Mitt Romney forms an exploratory committee.

January 5, 2007 - Sam Brownback recants his earlier decision not to run, and forms an exploratory committee.

January 7, 2007 - Joe Biden forms an exploratory committee.

January 9, 2007 - Controversial civil rights activist and 2004 nomination candidate Al Sharpton announces a 2nd run for the Democratic nomination.

January 11, 2007 - Chris Dodd and Ron Paul both announce their candidacies for President. Simultaneously, the Democratic National Committee announces the Democratic convention will be held in New Orleans.

January 15, 2007 - Marilyn Musgrave forms a presidential exploratory committee.

January 17, 2007 - To much fanfare, Hillary Rodham Clinton announces the formation of a presidential exploratory committee. Nationwide polls show she is a slight favorite over former President Jimmy Carter.

January 20, 2007 - Sam Brownback terminates his exploratory committee.

January 21, 2007 - Bill Richardson airs a campaign ad in Iowa, attacking the Clinton and Carter administrations.

January 24, 2007 - 2004 nominee John Kerry forms a presidential exploratory committee.

January 25, 2007 - Marilyn Musgrave announces her campaign for President.

January 28, 2007 - Mike Huckabee announces his campaign for President.

January 31, 2007 - Joe Biden will not run for President.

February!

February 1 - John Kerry and Duncan Hunter both terminate their exploratory committees. Neither will run for President. Although Hunter's decision is inconsequential, Kerry's decision to run would have had major implications.

February 5 - Rudy Giuliani announces that he will run for President. He is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination.

February 10 - Barack Obama announces that he is terminating his exploratory committee. In a speech widely regarded as excellent, he endorses Carter for President.

February 13 - Mitt Romney formally announces a Presidential campaign.

February 21 - Tom Harkin tells a journalist that he is considering a 2008 presidential campaign.

February 23 - Tom Harkin endorses Carter, and states that he had "never even thought" about a run for President.

February 28 - John McCain formally announces his presidential campaign. Political analysts seem to agree that the race for the nomination is between McCain, Romney, Giuliani, and 'Candidate X', a conservative who can appeal to evangelicals.

March!

March 1 - Hillary Rodham Clinton, previously at the exploratory stage, formally announces her campaign for President. She is considered the slight favorite over former President Jimmy Carter.

March 3 - The CPAC holds its annual presidential straw poll. John McCain defeats Mitt Romney, 23% to 21%, with Giuliani in 3rd, and various other candidates behind him. Interestingly, non-candidate Fred Thompson comes in 4th, suggesting he could fill the role of Candidate X.

March 9 - In Carson City, Nevada, a debate is held between Hillary Clinton, Bill Richardson, Chris Dodd, Dennis Kucinich, and Jimmy Carter. The debate is universally considered a victory for Dodd, and he rises in the polls.

March 11 - Fred Thompson states, on Fox News, that he is considering a presidential run.

March 12 - Skipping the exploratory stage, Fred Thompson announces a campaign for President.

March 22 - It is leaked that John Edwards may be reconsidering a presidential campaign. Edwards neither confirms nor denies these rumors.

Oh no!

The reason there is no firm 'conservative' candidate is that there are so many vying for that position: Gilmore, Musgrave, Thompson, Huckabee. They split the vote and allow the politicians you refer to as 'fake-publicans' to gain advantages.

And if a...fake-publican...is nominated, will you keep reading this?

And April! Btw, can I have some more comments?

April 1, 2007 - Tommy Thompson officially announces his campaign for President.

April 2, 2007 - Prominent anti-illegal immigration activist Chris Simcox endorses Marilyn Musgrave for President.

April 12, 2007 - A poll in Iowa shows Jimmy Carter in the lead for the Democrats, with 30% of the vote.

April 25, 2007 - John McCain goes on a campaigning blitz, with stops in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

April 26, 2007 - The Democratic candidates hold a debate in Columbia, South Carolina. Once again, Dodd is the winner. The two debate wins have significantly raised Dodd's profile, and he has risen from a non-factor to a serious candidate. On the same day, a leak reveals that Jim Gilmore, who has failed to get any traction in the GOP primary, is considering dropping out.

April 27, 2007 - Senator McCain continues his blitz, spending most of the day in Iowa before returning home to Arizona.

April 28, 2007 - John Edwards refutes rumors that he is considering dropping in. "I am not running," the 2004 vice-presidential nominee laconically answers a reporter.

May!

May 3 - The Republican candidates (Tommy Thompson, Marilyn Musgrave, John McCain, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Jim Gilmore) have their first debate in Simi Valley, California. There is no clear winner.

May 12 - A poll in Wisconsin shows Fred Thompson in the lead with 31% of the vote; the state is not usually a conservative haven. In another unexpected event, incumbent Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff announces the formation of an exploratory committee.

May 14 - Newt Gingrich states that he is considering a presidential run.

May 15 - The Republican candidates - this time including Chertoff - debate again in Columbia, South Carolina. Although there is no clear winner, Chertoff and Musgrave are thought to have performed particularly poorly.

May 20 - A Republican nomination poll in Georgia shows Fred Thompson in the lead, with 44% of the vote. Increasingly, Thompson seems to be taking the role of Candidate X.

May 21 - Bill Richardson launches a stream of negative ads against Dodd, Clinton, and Carter, in early primary states.

Impossible for Carter to  win in 08, but I'm following.

February 5 - Rudy Giuliani announces that he will run for President. He is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination.

February 13 - Mitt Romney formally announces a Presidential campaign.

February 28 - John McCain formally announces his presidential campaign. Political analysts seem to agree that the race for the nomination is between McCain, Romney, Giuliani, and 'Candidate X', a conservative who can appeal to evangelicals.

I'll keep reading even if the Republicans nominate Linc Chaffee. just because it's not someone i like doesn't mean i shouldn't read the TL, as long as it's good.

Thank you for all the compliments. Since I'm hoping to finish 2007 today, here's June and July for y'all!

June 3 - The Democratic candidates debate in Concord, New Hampshire. Once again, Senator Dodd is widely seen as the debate winner.

June 4 - The Democratic frontrunners (Chris Dodd, Hillary Clinton, and Jimmy Carter) debate in Washington D.C. Although the debate is very little-publicized, Governor Richardson proceeds to sue over the fact that he was not included.

June 5 - The Republican candidates debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. There is no clear winner, but there is a clear loser in Michael Chertoff.

June 6 - A nationwide poll of Republican primary voters is released, with John McCain and Rudy Giuliani tying for 1st place. McCain, Giuliani, Romney, Thompson, and Huckabee are the only candidates to clear double-digits.

June 28 - The June 4th debate was reheld, this time with all Democratic candidates participating. Chris Dodd was the clear winner, as usual.

July 1 - Republicans debate in Des Moines, Iowa. Mitt Romney is considered the winner, and gains in the polls.

July 2 - Many involved in Michael Chertoff's exploratory committee are suddenly fired. A withdrawal from the campaign seems imminent.

July 10 - Michael Chertoff terminates his exploratory committee.

July 12 - A Republican debate was planned in Detroit, Michigan, but only Marilyn Musgrave attended. Meanwhile, the NAACP endorses Jimmy Carter for President.

July 14 - Jim Gilmore withdraws from the race for the nomination.

July 23 - The Democratic candidates debate in Charleston, South Carolina. Dodd and Richardson seem to be the debates co-winners.

Another update for y'all!

August 4 - MoveOn.org holds its Internet 'primary'. Should any candidate clear 50%, they will gain the support of MoveOn.org. Carter and Clinton are the only candidates who gain over 30%...and both are under 35%.

August 5 - Republicans debate again in Des Moines. This time, there is no clear winner.

August 7 - The Democrats hold a debate in Chicago, Illinois. Yet again, Dodd is the winner, but he has stopped rising in the polls. It seems that Dodd has reached his ceiling.

August 9 - Comedian Stephen Colbert forms an exploratory committee to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Although his career, and the lateness of this move result in many claiming this is a joke, Colbert's actions over the next few weeks will disprove this allegation. Colbert is not joking this time.

August 11 - With 32% of the vote, Rudy Giuliani wins the Ames Straw Poll.

August 12 - Tommy Thompson drops out of the race for the Republican nomination. He does not issue an endorsement.

August 16 - A poll is released showing Mitt Romney at the unexpectedly high figure of 41% in Illinois.

August 19 - The Democratic candidates debate in Des Moines. Dodd stumbles through a question about abortion, leading many to term Carter and Richardson as the winners.

September 1 - A poll is released in Texas showing Marilyn Musgrave at 41% of the vote. The poll is dismissed as inaccurate.

September 5 - Fox News endorses Mitt Romney, giving his campaign a significant boost.

September 6 - Controversial conservative activist (and three-time Senate loser) Alan Keyes forms a presidential exploratory committee.

September 9 - The Democrats debate in Coral Gables, Florida. Chris Dodd is seen as the winner, yet again, but his abortion gaffe continues to plague the campaign.

September 12 - Alan Keyes switches his party registration to the Constitution Party. His exploratory committee lives on, however.

September 15 - Alan Keyes announces his candidacy for the Constitution Party's presidential nomination.

September 17 - The Republican candidates host a town hall debate in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The debate is notable for the following exchange:

College freshman: You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one. The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon. Our space probes have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, ships and electric and hydrogen cars, cell phones, computers with lightspeed processing...and more.

John McCain: You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young...so we invented them. Now you, arrogant little boy, what are you doing for the next generation?

The debate is widely considered a McCain victory.

September 21 - A poll in Michigan, widely considered a safe Romney state, shows McCain in the lead with 39% of the vote.

September 26 - The Democratic candidates debate in Hanover, New Hampshire. The debate has no clear winner, though Carter, Richardson, and Dodd are all considered to have done well.

September 27 - The Republican candidates debate in Baltimore, Maryland. Romney is considered the winner.

September 28 - It is leaked that Newt Gingrich will not run for President.

September 29 - Newt Gingrich announces that he will not run for President.

Well, Hopefully this isn't just an avenue to get the GOP to hold the White House in 2009 and a nonbiased look at an alternate 2008 election. This is an awesome POD btw Vosem, as I think with how successfull Carter's post presidency has been, I think he could be the first president since Grover Cleveland to win a 2nd non consecutive term(In different centuries nonethless).

October 9 - The Republicans debate in Dearborn, Michigan. Fred Thompson is seen as the debate winner.

October 19 - Sam Brownback endorses Fred Thompson.

October 20 - A nationwide poll of Republican primary voters surprisingly shows Mitt Romney in the lead, though with just 21% of the vote. McCain and Giuliani have stayed static; meanwhile, Huckabee and Musgrave have lost significant ground, mostly to Thompson.

October 21 - Republicans debate in Orlando, Florida. Giuliani is seen as the winner.

October 25 - Republicans debate again in Sioux City, Iowa. Although there is no clear winner, McCain is seen as being overly negative, and his poll numbers drop after the Sioux debate.

November 5 - Ron Paul, who has had a presidential exploratory committee since March, formally enters the race. Simultaneously, he sets the record for most raised in a day, raising $4.3 million.

November 8 - The RNC announces that all states having primaries before February 5 will have their delegate totals cut in half. Still, several states persevere.

November 15 -The Democrats debate in Las Vegas, Nevada. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chris Dodd are both winners.

November 21 - Barack Obama rallies African-Americans for Jimmy Carter. Originally considered one of Carter’s most formidable rivals, Obama has enthusiastically endorsed Carter and campaigned for him.

November 30 – A man storms into Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire campaign office and takes an employee hostage. He is quickly subdued and arrested.

December 4 – Democrats hold a radio debate. Dodd is the winner.

December 6 – Romney gives a speech emphasizing the importance of faith, but downplaying its role in the material world. The speech is seen as one of the campaign’s best, and Romney rises in the polls.

December 11 – Cynthia McKinney announces her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President.

December 12 – Republicans debate in Johnston, Iowa. There is no clear winner.

December 16 – Ron Paul raises $6 million in a day, breaking his own record from November 5.

December 17 – Joe Lieberman enthusiastically endorses John McCain.

I try to be nonbiased, but that is for my readers to decide. I have already planned much of the next year and a half.
