Inspired by the fantasy primary.  Lets say Bush wins this year, Cheney does not run in 2008, and 2008 is therefore an open election.  Who do you support, Dems?

I'm not a Dem, so I didn't vote, but I'm a big Obama fan.  After that, Warner and Richardson.

Obama would need at more then four years in the Senate to make a presidential run. Vice-President maybe...

I'd vote for him anyway, even if he wouldn't win, just to make a statement.

Bill Richardson. Member of Clinton Administration. (Which would look really good after 8 yeats of Bush*t) Really helps the Latino vote. Good speaker. Edwards already failed, Hillary and Dean are too polarizing, Warner is a possibility for VP. Bayh couldn't win nationally and Obama wouldn't have enough experience.

Edwards or Obama (pity he will only have 4 years in the Senate) probably, not sure.

Not entirely sure, if Edwards is elected to the Governorship or some other position until 2008 so he gets more experience then him probably, Obama would be good but 4 years in the Senate isn't much.

My favorite out of those is Obama, but after only 4 years in the Senate, I can't see him running.

It'd be between Richardson, Edwards and Warner. Out of those Warner would probably be the best candidate in the general, but he might be a better VP. I guess I'd go with Edwards/Warner if I could pick the whole ticket.

Edwards.

Obama still needs more experience and I doubt he'd go for the nomination in 2008. 2012 or 2016 look more realistic.

I'd love to see a contest between Edwards/Ford and McCain/Frist.

Bayh... then Edwards in second and Obama and Warner (who may well be a Senator by then) tied in third Smiley

Always support the local candidate, hah.  Virginia will prosper a little more with Virginian interests bribing the candidate.  Look at Texas with George Bush.

Bayh.

If Bayh is the Dem candidate in 2008, I'll have a very hard time voting Republican.
