I think an oligarchy in that family is already on the way, so why not Jeb B. ?
But let's see how this dull conservatism culminates in the new administration. Maybe we get Wolfowitz in 2008 - declaring WWIII to Vietnam and North Korea then ...
no, much too liberal and made too many apparent Hollywood-mistakes in front of the UN-crowd
Rumsfeld? no, too old
right, but that mummy will live on under president Wolfowitz
Ashcroft? too dull
Schwarzennegger?, he could gurantee a third republican period. But they need to change the constitution, I can only see them doing that if they are too desperate.
Arni will be needed in CA to take 55 elv's for the GOP
Condolizaaaaaaa Rice? no, never. By far too less charisma ... (and a member of a minority, omg ...)
most likely to me: JOHN EDWARDS
clever, wise, charisma, antipode to eight years of madness ...
still in good age then ! (not too young and not too old)
Hillary Clinton ? a dream, but too European (what 50% Americans will hate in 2008
), a woman with too much brain ... (arguments havn't even worked in 2004 so why should they in 2008?)
Obama ? African roots ... No. Conservativs dislike foreign influence (as we've seen)
[but my hope if something changes in the mentality of the ]50%[ < x < ]55%[ ]
my prediction for 2008
[extreme right winged] ~vs~ JOHN EDWARDS [LIBERAL, for some COMMUNIST ]
polarized 2008 campaign as Americans want it, white vs. black, no shades of grey ...
