Lots of folks seem to want to be the next president. I guess after GW they figure anyone can do the job. Maybe they're right. As much as I hate to say it we have survived 6 years of Bubba Bush, I guess that's one of the great things about our system of checks and balances. Of course, there are those who think that Dubya is doing a great job, I think they must be members of the "Flat Earth Society".
I think that we should be watching Hugo Chavez very closely. He is making Socialism sound great to all the folks down there. The next logical step is to export it to all of the Southern Hemisphere. Then Good Ol' George can invade Venezuela for their oil. We call that "exporting Democracy". You know, no habeous corpus. warrantless wiretaps, unfettered mail opening, and a general suspension of human rights in the name of security.
It does seem that we are going to have lots of choices in the primaries. I suppose that we'll wind up with a moderate liberal vs a conservative moderate. I hope that we get religion out of the campaign. If the churches want to rally for something how about food for the hungry, clothing for the naked, and housing for the homeless. Leave the judgement thing to God, whatever form she may take.
