Official Campaign 2008 Hot Stove Thread

And they're off !

Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack launches his campaign, filing documents with federal election commission. Guess the winner of that caucus is a pretty easy guess.

Rumors? Speculation? Discussion?

Right now if Obama doesn't run (which I am not sure yet if he will, because he needs to show to the American people that he's got more going for him besides the rock star status - and believe me, I love the guy, but am not sure he's ready to run a successful bid for President) I have no holy clue. It's looking like Hillary at the moment.

John Edwards is my favorite candidate.

Next week, I'm planning to attend a book signing he'll have for his new book at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan, and I will have two words for him: "Please run."

While I love Obama and he's worked quietly on some important legislation, I do think he should wait until 2012 or 2016 (hopefully 2016 ). I'll probably vote for him if he runs, because everyone else is either Hillary or very conservative. But I don't think he should. On the other hand, we got NOBODY (and neither do the Republicans, please god anyone but Romney) so who knows.

I like Edwards a lot, I'm not sure if he's electable given that he's been out of the spotlight, but Ilike him a lot, he's another guy I'd consider. I am laughing at the "draft Gore" folks but I wouldn't be too opposed to that either - I think he's learned a lot in the past 8 years. Plus, he won once, so maybe he can win again. Then there's Clark, who I didn't mind last time around, and might make a nice candidate for this stage in the war.

I'd love to see a "real" Democrat like Howard Dean, but of course that will never happen. My guess is Clinton vs. McCain...somebody else can forecast the winner of that one.

I think Obama's recent musing that he might run was just a ploy to help the Dems in the midterms, and to promote his new book. I think he'll hold off until 2012

Call me crazy, but I think it'll be Gore (with either Bill Richardson or Evan Bayh as VP) against Romney (with Huckabee or Hunter as VP).
