Decision 2008!

The 2004 elections are finally over and I'm ready to make my predictions for 2008.

The Candidates:
Condoleeza Rice, Republican Nominee for President
Rudolph Giuliani, Republican Nominee for Vice President

Hillary Clinton, Democratic Nominee for President
John Kerry, Democratic Nominee for Vice President.

The analysis:
Condoleeza Rice - With a strong showing for Bush, it's clear that the Republican party will need to run a strong Conservative. It's also important that the candidate be tough on Terror and able to protect our nation. Rice served under President Bush as the National Security Advisor and has the experience needed. She also has a strong resolve and tough attitude (not to mention she's a genius!).

Rudolph Giuliani - He has a tremendous amount of support among moderates and Liberals, helping the Republican party win over undecided voters and those leaning Democrat. He is not Conservative enough to be the Republican nominee for President, but he has enough popularity and nation-wide appeal to complement Rice. He will be a huge help in fund raising and has a great media presence.

Hillary Clinton - Clinton is adored by Liberals and the Democratic Party. President Bill Clinton has been the most popular Democratic President since Kennedy and Hillary can use him as a vital fund raiser. She also has a tough attitude and can, unlike Kerry, prove herself to be tough on Terrorists, something Democrats will have to have in their nominee.

John Kerry - He spent millions campaigning and had a good showing against Bush. His weak points were on morality and Terrorism. With him as VP, he'll be able to give Clinton a large portion of his 2004 supporters. He'll also lend his war veteran status to the Democratic campaign.

The results:
I think Clinton and Kerry are the Democrats' best candidates they have to offer, but they will not be able to beat the powerhouse of Condi and Rudy.

Condoleeza Rice and Rudloph Giuliani will win the 2008 Presidential Elections!

(To Dr. Rice: If Karl Rove is tired and feels like sitting '08 out, give me a call.)
