Biden: Clinton Hard to Beat in 2008 Race

WASHINGTON - Sen. Joseph Biden (news, bio, voting record) says any Democrat who wants to run for president in 2008 should keep in mind these three words: Hillary Rodham Clinton (news - web sites).

"I think she'd be incredibly difficult to beat," the Delaware Democrat said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I think she is the most difficult obstacle for anyone being the nominee."

The former first lady and Democratic senator from New York insists that she plans to run for re-election in 2006. But speculation persists that she might run for president in 2008.

"She is likely to be the nominee," Biden said. "She'd be the toughest person and I think Hillary Clinton (news - web sites) is able to be elected president of the United States."

Biden said he is thinking about running again, 20 years after his first failed bid for the White House because "there's a lot at stake."

The Democrats are already well on their way to losing in 2008 because of Hillary.

She is gonna' have zero grass roots support and that is crucial in Iowa. 

Here my prediction for the 2008 primary:

We're gonna have like 4 moderates running (Bayh, Warner, Richardson, and Clinton.)  They're going to split alot of the moderate/populist vote causing all of them to do horrible.  Then some progressive like Feingold is gonna' sneak in the back door and win the primary by pulling together enough of the liberal vote to push him over the top.

There is a chance that Vilsack runs, which means Iowa loses its importance.  A good about the potential candidates is that all their homestates come up early in the primary cycle so it will be close until Super Tuesday.

If she wins, Biden will be Sec of State.

Dean was unstoppable too.

Hillary has a secret weapon that no other Dem candidate can produce---Bill Clinton.   His svengali like hold on the Dem faithful will propel Hillary to the head of the pack.  Unless she faces Frist, however, she loses in a landslide.
