2008 Democratic Presidential Contenders

Here’s a list of the top 50 Contenders for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination, provided by the NewPolitics blog. Topping the list, of course, is Hilary, John Edwards is 2nd, and, it gets silly toward the end, Lyndon LaRouche is 50th.

The real sleeper is at #18. Tennessee’s Governor Phil Bredesen emerges as the southern dark horse. Can this work again, an unknown Southern Governor wins just like Carter and Clinton. Just Google ’Phil Bredesen for President.’

The race is on; given campaign finance laws, the early and jam-packed primary/caucus season, it will as Yogi Berra says, ’get late, early,’ this go round.

List, schmist. Hillary’s got it. Only if she doesn’t run do the other names become relevant.

LaRouche??? LOL! Yes!!! "It’s the economy stupid!" That is sooo ridiculous.

Anyway, Hillary does not "have it". I think the Democrats are smarter than that. They know they won’t win if they run her. She’s too polarizing. We need a moderate, dangit!

I agree with Matt...Hillary might run but she won’t get elected. Just because she is a woman doesn’t mean that she will lock in the female vote.

Ed Rendell was a shock...he has done nothing as our governor, but they are right that he craves media attention.
