The 2008 Presidential election will be Mark Warner (D) v George Allen (R)
Advertisements [?]
It won't be Senator Hillary Clinton v Senator John McCain and it won't be Senator Hillary Clinton v Governor Jeb Bush.

My party will choose Governor Mark Warner of Virginia. Warner needs some foreign policy credentials, so he'll choose a Veep that has expertise in that particular area....possibly I hope General Wesley Clark of Arkansas or General Hugh Shelton of South Carolina.

So my party's 2008 Presidential ticket I think will be:

Mark Warner/Wesley Clark

Mark Warner/Hugh Shelton

Mark Warner I hope would choose John Edwards to be his Attorney-General.

The Republican's will choose Senator George Allen of Virginia. Allen will choose as his Veep either Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina, Governor Bill Owens of Colorado OR Condi Rice.

So the Republican's 2008 Presidential ticket I think will be:

George Allen/Mark Sanford

George Allen/Bill Owens

George Allen/Condi Rice

This is just my opinion, I happen to think I'm correct obviously :)
