5. #1, I don't care about 2008
#2. I do not like having my candidates "crowned" by the media.

Every time one of the 24/7 stations so much as mentions 2008.. off it goes!
One week in real time is like 6 months of political time, so any talk of '08 is pointless time-filling distraction.... of no more use than the latest showy murder/suicide, missing blond or latest xmas "must-have".
