  • President Obama?

    It looks like Barak Obama is going to test the waters for running for the presidency in 2008.

    And that's why I wanted to tell you first that I'll be filing papers today to create a presidential exploratory committee. For the next several weeks, I am going to talk with people from around the country, listening and learning more about the challenges we face as a nation, the opportunities that lie before us, and the role that a presidential campaign might play in bringing our country together. And on February 10th, at the end of these decisions and in my home state of Illinois, I'll share my plans with my friends, neighbors and fellow Americans.
    So I guess we'll find out next month if the Democratic primaries are going to be interesting. :)

      Bahh.

      He should just go ahead and run for Vice President now and save everyone a lot of money and work.

      What is so interesting is that this the first time sence 1952(?) that both parties will be going through the same primaries and what not.

      So twice the fun for us next year.

      I wonder if the GOP will endorse McCain or give him the ol heev hoo like back in 2000.

        It's a pretty strong limb too.

        I don't think he's going to be too distracted from his senatorial duties over the next month... Just soaking up publicity.

            I don't like Obama. I would never vote for him.

            HOWEVER, if it came down to a tight race to decide whether he or Hilary got the democratic nomination, I'd switch my registration to democrat and vote for obama.

            My worst nightmare is hearing the dreaded words, "Madame President Clinton." I'd be okay with hearing "Mister President Obama" comparatively ANY day.

            Other than that, I don't like the idea of a President Obama.

            I like the idea of President Brownback, or of President Rice, but those are topics for other threads another day.

                Yeah, that'd be cool. She probably couldn't win, though, because she wouldn't have a "First Husband" since she's not married.

                  but the fact that she's black and a woman would help her out in a very big way.

                  this nation is fooling itself to think that its moved beyond the race issue. we still have it, its just that now its milder and working in reverse.

                    We also have footage of Rice lying, backpedaling, and generally looking foolish before Congress. And she has never expressed an interest in running. So it seems unlikely.

                      Wha? When did she lie? I would've thought that would be front page news...

                      Yeah, her disinterest would be a problem, though.

                        I think a more up front problem would be the fact that she always looks like she's about to call someone an idiot, slap them and then rip out their throat with her teeth. And that's when she's smiling.

                        Seriously, though, I haven't seen a picture of her yet that doesn't show her scowling or pissy-looking. That would be a rough obstacle to overcome.

                          Re: President Obama?

                          My predictions:

                          John McCain vs. Al Gore --
                          Gore wins.

                          John McCain vs. any other Democrat --
                          McCain wins.

                          Any Republican vs. Hillary Clinton --
                          Rebublican wins.

                          I doubt Obama would get the Democratic nod. And if Edwards does, the Dems are in big trouble. Hillary would lose if she does. My hopes are on Gore.

                          3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                            That Gore guy, he is a wild card.

                            He almost won last time (or did win depending on who you ask). And his stance on the global warming issue is turning out to be not all that crazy.

                            But I like Gov Bill Richardson with Obama as vice.

                              Hasn't Gore stated that he's not running, though? Unless I'm mistaken.
