As anyone who has read my posts on my presidential preference, you will know I like Mitt Romney.

George Allen/Mitt Romney or Mitt Romney/George/Allen

would be a formidable ticket indeed, and would defeat any liberal Democrat by a wiiiiiiiiiide margin!   

As far as I'm concerned, Mike Naso is right on!

Has CNN or others ever contemplated that Fox News, the NY Post, and other Republican entities are treading lightly with Hillary b/c they know she's not electable? The party (as a whole) doesn't know how to foster a middle class or wage an effective war, but they do know electability--and know it darn well. But we can continue to delude ourselves into thinking she can win red states (against the real candidate, George Allen).
I think they are trying to paint her as a front-runner so that by 2008, everybody cringes when they here Hillary Clinton and they don't vote for her. Not that's she's going to run anyways (thank god!).

Yes, I dare say Hillary could have that New York seat for life - so with bit of luck that's exactly where she'll stay Wink

I hope Hillary will stay in the Senate, Edwards will succeed Dean as DNC Chair, and Wes Clark will wait to be appointed by someone that can actually win an election, besides a three-way-tie in Oklahoma.  I just hope Kerry does anything but run for President (it's not like he'll get the nomination anyway).  I also hope Bayh and Warner work something out before they split the moderate vote.

I really think it will be Warner (currently) who wins the party nomination.  If someone else from the party rises up in the next year, he might have a challenge on his hands.  As far as Edwards taking over for Dean, that would definitely be an improvement, especially given his speaking skills.

It's amusing, in retrospect.  If someone had predicted a President Obama in 2008 after a decisive borderline landslide over John McCain back then, he'd be considered incredibly hackish and laughed off the board.  The love of George Allen is also hilarious.

Of course, who am I to talk?  Up until the day the story broke, I maintained that Eliot Spitzer would eventually be President.

What's even more amusing is that by July 2005, when this thread started, it was painfully obvious that W. and his administration were in a downward spiral.

Wow, look at that.  A correct prediction of mine.  Of course, it's just barely specific enough to look good while still having a good chance of occurring, and is completely motivated, so whatever incorrect reasoning brought me to that prediction (probably having to do mainly with Iraq) is glossed over.

And of course, in the poll, I voted for a Republican victory...
