Do you think who's gonna win the election for US president?

It's exciting to know that the new president might be the first African-American or First woman.

See how the new face of the world will look like. How the new US President will bear with such a pressure from Eastern Dragon China.

I think Mrs. Clinton's gonna win the election.

November 2008. Right now the various candidates are campaigning for the "primaries" to be nominated by their political parties. Pity us. We have 8 more months of their crap before the primaries even begin. Rolling Eyes

Which Bush? Jeb? Because by our constitution's 22nd amendment, George W. Bush cannot run for a 3rd term. He will have to leave office on January 20th, 2009.

He is right. President can only be in the position for 2 terms (8 years.)

There is not a single presumptive candidate at this point that I am impressed with. Neither from the Republican nor the Democrat party.

It's so embarrassing to have an incompetent in the office of President, and a flock of incompetents competing to replace him. Shocked

I sure hope someone with some decent credentials surfaces before November of 2008. Or I'll be voting for the least of the worst again. Rolling Eyes

I think RR will speak and speak, so that the assassin will realize that it's better for him to commit suicide than to live any longer. See http://forums.eslcafe.com/student/viewtopic.php?t=17311

Because there are a lot of people who don't like the recent president the desire of election is very big.
