Well the crazy Kennedy "act-alike' character looks a good chance of being chosen to run for "King' of the USA

Re: Who will win the Democrats' nomination in 2008?

You should care, people. Given that the democrats will fairly certain win the white house this time around, you're probably talking about the next President, that is, the next most powerful person in the world.
That is, the next peron who dictates politics even here in Britain.

And my money is on Obama. I can think of no better antidote to 2 terms of right wing redneck [censored] 'politics', than the induction of a left wing, liberal, and the first black President of the USA.

I can see the hillbillys and rednecks spitting at the very thought of a black President now. Muppets.

Re: Who will win the Democrats' nomination in 2008?

I'm not sure, but to put the question another way - would the rednecks prefer a woman or a blackman in charge!? If either wins it will be a first for sexual equality or racial equality.

The other problem for Mrs Clinton is, if she allows her husband to screw around and not do anything to stop him what would she be like as President?

I don't care because I've got no power to influence the result. I can't vote because I'm not a US citizen. What will happen will happen regardless of what I think about it so I couldn't care less if it's Clinton, Obama or Rusty the bouncing weather midget.

The result will affect me but I can't affect the result so why should I care?

I wouldn't call him left wing.. I mean he's more left than Geogre (who isn't?), but he's still a capitalist in terms of economics, his social policies are centrist at best. But yes, he will be very good for America, I so hope he wins the Democrat nomination.

The key things (and I hope he sticks to them) are his stance on universal health care for all Americans, his support for troops returning from war, and his pledge to bring back troops from the middle east.

An American NHS is something the country desperatley needs, but I don't think the country would be willing to pay for it

Re: Who will win the Democrats' nomination in 2008?

Having watched most of the debates and lots of the caucus coverage for both parties (because that's what politically intersted Canadians do -- follow American politics like a hawk, especially when the Mulroney/Schreiber Committee in on a break), I sadly fear that the people saying Obama will get the nod are right. The Kennedy approval seems to be the clincher.

What worries me about Obama is that while he may be big on inspiration, he is lousy on the details and the specifcs. Actually even listening to his speeches with a careful ear (as opposed to a sense the sense of rapture demonstrated by most of his supporters), it becomes obvious that he barely makes sense at times -- at least from a logical perspective. He can't seem to make a solid argument or case. He often scrambles his facts and dates and has difficulty going straight from A to B to C. He even admitted that his biggest weakness is that he is disorganized. Those aren't traits I want to see in a U.S. president.

Now that Edwards is out of the race, and it's reallly down to just Clinton and Obama, my preference would be for Clinton, even if I don't trust her to manage the U.S./Canadian relationship in a way that would be beneficial to us. (I also have my doubts about Edwards, but for different reasons, and was on the fence between the two of them.)

I also don't believe that the Democrats have a lock on the White House. As much as it seems obvious to me on this side of the border that the Republicans need to take a break from governing, Americans have been known to produce some truly amazing election results out of seemingly thin air.

For anybody interested or just bored, Glassbooth - Quiz to help you choose best 2008 presidential candidate is designed to help you (well, technically Americans ) decide on which candidate is most compatible with your own personal views. My result (not that I need a computer program to tell me who to support) was Gravel, Edwards, Clinton. Paul was my highest ranked Republican, which I must admit pleased me, for while I don't agree with most of his stands on hard-core evangelical issues (women's rights, gay rights, health care and some economic policies) I do love his take on U.S. foreign relations, and I really admire his willingness to stand up and express his feelings about the current administration. I think he's a true character, and sometimes you need a character in politics.

Republican.

Huckabee is a good, old, southern boy turned Baptist preacher. He also has some very southern dietary habits. (In his own words, and needs to been seen to be believed.)

Re: Who will win the Democrats' nomination in 2008?

The D's don't have a snowflakes chance in hell
of winning. (Again. )

They'll either nominate Clinton (A woman) or Obama
(A black guy) neither of which are (sadly)
going to win the US Presidency.

If I was betting, I'd put money Huckabee or the Romney.
