Not 'might'. Will. Here's the scenario.
Bush Jr is moving his own people into the power spots in the administration, downgrading the old guard. Condi Rice is in charge in Iraq now, instead of Donald Rumsfeld. Colin Powell always intimated he was a one term Sec'y of State. Richard Armitage is likely to take over that spot.
So what's any of that have to do with the Presidency in 2008.
One of the 'old guard' who's often not exactly 'on message' with the President is the Vice-President. Even after Bush Jr, Rice and Powell all said bluntly, 'we have NO information that Saddam Hussein was involved inthe Sept 11th attacks, Cheney was still trying to make the case.
I think 2nd term, Bush Jr goes for a new Vice-President, and Cheney goes back to Halliburton, who's still paying him anyway. So who's going to be the new VP? Well, who does Bush Jr trust COMPLETELY, who works out fornt, not behind the scenes?
So I figure a Bush(el of)-Rice trounces whatever the Democrats offer. Then, in 2008, Bush Jr can't run again.
Who's the likely Republican nominee? Rock-ribbed Conservative, ultra smart, totally trusted by the Republican Establishment and the sitting VP.
Who's the likely Democratic nominee? The biggest star in the party who didn't get caught lying to the American people, and their #1 fund raiser.
So there you have it. Conservative Republicans backing a black woman for President, while the Democrats are backing a Southerner who favors the death penalty. limits on welfare, and voted in favor of the war in Iraq.
Also, Dogs will lie down with cats, there will be a worldwide plague of locusts, and there will be a total eclipse of the sun on election day.
