Here’s an interesting piece from the Washinton Post about Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s prospects for the Presidency in 2008. It’s going to be fascinating seeing who eventually wins the nomination. I’m still hoping Al Gore pulls it off and saves the world more or less single-handedly, but it’s looking increasingly likely that we’re all doomed. On the matter of Obama and Clinton, I think that a joint bid is likely, with Clinton running for President and Obama for Vice-President, if only because of Obama’s relative lack of experience. Then, if they win, it’s plain sailing for 16 years of Democratic control of the White House, with two terms each provided they utilise the power of encumbency and don’t run the country into the ground.
However, winning the presidency will be another matter, and if there was ever a politician made for leading the USA’s War on Terror, then in my opinion it’s Arizona Senator John McCain. One thing’s for sure though, whoever the next US President is, they’ll be far better than W.
