So I was talking to someone recently who said they aren't going to vote in the 2008 election, but rather wait until 2012 when we've hopefully got better candidates. Interesting strategy, but anyway it got me thinking about the next election. I wonder if Iraq and the economy will still be the main issues, or if we'll be on the path to resolving them and ready to move on. Anyone have any predictions about who will be running, or even who might win? Obviously there are two paths to go down.... If McCain wins in 08: - Will he run for re-election, or will he step aside and let Sarah Palin run in his place because of the age factor? Will the Republicans choose someone else entirely because they are dissatisfied with his administration? - Will both Obama and Clinton run against each other in the primaries again? If Obama wins in 08: - Who will be the Republican nominee? Palin, Romney, Huckabee? Or someone completely new? Also there are third parties to think about. I wonder if Ron Paul will run again?
