    Blacks vs chicks

    This being America, I have NO IDEA AT ALL

    Why do they have to have BOTH at ONCE?

    I have no idea which I'd rather have as Democratic candidate.

    Probably Obama, I think he'd have a better chance of winning the presidency.

    At least he has NO PAST.

    But I'm quite fond of Hillary... Both are a RISK, in a country debatably more backward than Mongolia...

    Or how about an Obama/Clinton ticket? Black President, female Vice-President would work for me.

    Yay, and then Hillary can become president after Obama has an accident.

    I'd prefer Obama. Hillary is either love or hate, with a FAIR few Americans already choosing the hate option.

    I'd quite like it if either of them were to run, with the other taking Vice President.

    You dont think there's some significant proportion who will vote for her because she's so familiar do you? I mean, they DID elect Arnie as Governer

    Perhaps. But certain sections of the country really hate her. She's seen as an archetypal Liberal. Which has become a VERY dirty word over there over the past decade.

    I'd go for Obama, simply as he's less contentious, and therefore probably has a greater chance.

    Who do you want to be the Democratic nominee for the 2008 US Presidential election?

    What a pointless topic, considering there's one on the exact same subject JUST BELOW

    I think a black man as president would be a much bigger step foward for America than a female president

    I think Obama should be Vice President to Hilary, and then if she wins and in President for 4/8 years, he could take over after that. He's a young guy, he's got years of politics ahead of him.

    How does the system work then? New York (Hiliary's constituency) is pretty much safe ground. If Hilary was President, does that mean New York would be without a Senator? That seems very odd.

    Oh, I'm just being silly - I thought New York and Illinois has republican Governors.

    Everything will be fine if either get elected. They'd constitutional required to resigned their senate seats, but the Governor(s) choose a temporary replacement, before a special election is held.

    I can't really vote in this until I know more about the guy & his politics. And Al Gore would have made a good President - shame he had no charisma or the folksy good ole boy play-dumb charm that the US electorate seem to love .

    He would have been if he hadn't run off with his mistress.

    Rudolph is a bit of a ONE TRICK PONY. He reacted well to 9/11? AND? What else could he have done? LAUGHED OPENLY?

    Hillary. Certainly not perfect but I like her focus on health care. She'll have a tough job winning over the heartland Middle America rednecks though. :america: :black: :rustie: :mo: :jew: :nun: :military: :Peace: :durst:

    lol how obesedogsrock-esque with the multiple smilies.

    He is a bit... mind you, he looks to be just about the only vaguely respectable Republican candidate... the others are just your standard cunts.

    Edwards is a risk. He could easily win the a few of the first Democratic caucuses/primaries.

    Thing is, Rudy is socially liberal, he is pro same-sex civil unions, pro-choice in abortion, he supports stem-cell research and is for gun control. That either means he turns off a lot of grass-root bible belt Republicans or attracts swaying Democrats.

    I can't see him winning the Republican race though, he's just too liberal and UNFAITHFUL!
