Hm, Rudy and Condi. I doubt it. I cannot imagine them nominating a woman, even if she is the Secretary of State and smart as hell.

Ouch... I don't believe that the Republican Party is anti-woman just because they support birth (hence, pro-life - the majority anyways). I'm sorry you think that, but Condi is not respected among her own people, and she probably doesn't have the minority appeal from what I've heard. She's certainly a very bright, well-educated woman who deserves more respect than the rap she's been getting.

I don't think it's got anything to do with the pro-life issue. I can't see either party successfully getting a woman elected, even if she is #2. American voters aren't going to elect a ticket with a woman on it, I don't care who it is.

Hillary Clinton has plenty of potential. For the republicans to nominate a woman, first you need a well-respected voice. Being that women are more liberal than men, it's hard to find a conservative woman who can get respect by most of her fellow females.

Hillary Clinton has plenty of potential, perhaps, but she isn't electable. She's too controversial and divisive. I think it's interesting that all the predictions about Hillary's candidacy are coming from the right. As a liberal, I don't want her for the Democratic nomination. That would be electoral disaster.

Although I'd never vote Hillary, I'd be thrilled to see a female president in my lifetime.

McCain is probably ready to go. Some republicans feel its his turn, just like Dole was given the nomination.
In 2000 if it weren't for Bush's fathers connections and the resultant money, McCain would be president today.
Jeb will definitely run after the next cycle of a non-bush presidency.

I think McCain has the most potential, given that Rudy Guiliani is a social liberal. McCain took a stand against what he found to be immoral, negative advertising by his own party. Given he had a valid case, I have a lot of respect for him.

Isn't Jeb Bush Catholic? I thought he converted some time ago.

There will be Bush fatigue in 2008. Not a smart thing to put a third one on the campaign trail.

Good grief, talk about a nightmare ticket. Give me McCain or Guiliani if we are going to have a Republican. I don't think McCain is through with presidential politics. He could go all the way in 2008.

How about some less sarcastic suggestions, maybe list a few people on the other side of the fence that you happen to admire.
