    i agree that the Democratic party will need to revamp a good portion of its policies prior to winning anything (house, senate, presidency). My choices are due to it is ripe for the time of a woman and a non-white to be in the main offices of power. Long overdue.
    You think that a Democrat is going to run with one of two Republicans?

    contrary to popular belief. Most women would vote their principles and NOT just based on getting a woman into the white house. I know an awful lot of women who will vote against her.

    I share Cheez skepticism here. Not going to happen. Remember kerry was reported to have toyed with the possibility of McCain as a running mate. They don't do that sort of thing very often.

    I don't think that was ever seriously considered, since McCain had come out and very publically stated he wouldn't accept the nomination if it was offered.

    Woulda been cool, though.

    it has happened in the past.
    i believe that 2008 campain will be ran on trying to show unity among the parties.
    i believe this term will show that a one sided approach creates very one sided results.
    ie. John Adams (Federalist) Thomas Jefferson (Republican).
    I'm sure there are more, but this is the first example that came to mind.
    please forgive me that the examples are a little out dated.

    I know it's happened in the past, but show me some time recently where it's happened.

    And of course one side having control of all three branches creates one-sided results. The thing is, the side that's controlling it generall likes those results, so there's no reason to create a balanced ticket.

    Besides, running Hillary (a female Democrat with the last name Clinton) and Powell (a black Republican) is a terrible idea. Loads of people will vote against it because they hate blacks, women, the name Clinton, Democrats, or Republicans.

    echo GC and PJ on the multi party ticket - it'll never happen.

    The democrats need to do something drastic to either mobilize their base or move more twards the middle. The move towards the middle seems as the thing to do; there is not much more of the base that could be mobilized - the loyal democrats DID vote this election. The fact is that there is simply more republicans than Democrats; The democrats should try and get to the heartland of America to persuade the middle of the road folks to their platform - it is rather doubtful they'll get anything done in the deep south, but states such as Ohio, Indiana, and Iowa could very easily be theirs.

    My picks for 2008 is a Giuliani/McCain ticket (either one VP/P) and for the Democrats...don't overlook the young, newly elected senator from Illinois - Obama. He is very likely to be the next VP candidate. I'm not sure about the democratic presidential candidate - but it surely will not be Hillary...that would be self destruction to the Democratic party.

    =====
    I have been out of the country for a while, but I did vote this election and in a true middle of the road way: Bush and Obama.

    > Obama.

    Hehe, it's not as if you had much of a choice. I have no idea why the republicans ran Keyes.

    He'll make a great candidate for higher office soon, but I think he'll be seen as too young if he runs for anything in '08.

    >>but I think he'll be seen as too young if he runs for anything in '08.

    the momentum he has right now might carry him along for the next 4 years...and precisely the fact that he is so young and fresh might appeal to many (only for VP though)
