Who runs against Hillary in 2006?
Do the republicans have any strong candidates?

I'm wondering if the democrats lose in 2004, whether Hillary would run for re-election at all. She might just want to concentrate on the 2008 presidential campaign.

2. Giuliani
Rudy is the GOP's strongest candidate, arguably.

11. Rudi is very strong candidate
He was always able to get Democrats to vote for him. I don't see Hillary losing, she has worked very hard at being a good Senator for New York. Schumer might be vulnerable... when is he up for reelection?

15. Is Rudy going to challenge Schumer?
I mean, Chuck Schumer is not chopped liver, and he has been a good Senator. His only weakness is that he doesn't have the star power of a Hillary or a Giuliani.

18. Schumer is safe
Hillary, however, is vulnerable in some polls. The Repugs in NY will also be energized to run against her, as well as the RNC, * or no *, will pour their heart and soul into unseating her.

6. Rudy's their top candidate
Otherwise the only person who could give Clinton a run would be Gov. Pataki (who I see as the likely Republican nominee).

10. Pataki. Guiliani for governor.
These are the two most popular republicans in the state.

12. Ruuuuuuu-Deeeeee
an of course, by then, the conservative brainwashing machine will have completed its spin cycle , and all the gross infidelities committed by him, will have been relegated to "youthful indisgression" status..

Some have said that Shumer wants to run for governor..

Wouldn't that be the shits if NY ended up with two repube senators :(

14. Running against HRC
Edited on Wed Dec-10-03 07:04 PM by billyf65
It seems as if Rudy will run for Guv. While this is good for Hilary, it is bad for Eliot Spitzer - NY State's very capable and powerful AG who has made a name for himself fighting corrupt corporations. He looked to be the odds on favorite to be the gubernatorial nominee for the Dems, and Giuliani can probably take him.

Pataki might run for Senate - but Hilary could probably beat him. His popularity has waned of late - and she has really done well to position herself as a thoughtful, hard working centrist.

She is, of course, poisonous. If she is ever the presidential nominee, bank on the Republican winning. I like her - but to too many people, she will never be acceptable. It may not be right, but it is so.

I kind of hope she sticks around and becomes an elder stateswoman in the Senate ala Ted Kennedy.

As for Schumer - he's up in 2004 - and should be re-elected. He could face this guy:

What a joke. Please read it. At one point, he writes that in NY state, Bush is "wildly popular."

19. My thoughts on this
1. Schumer could beat that guy without a problem! Seriously? That website is hilarious! I don't know if the Republicans want THAT guy! Look, his picture is creepy there is no WAY he can win.

2. Hillary could beat Pataki, Pataki has support... but he is somewhat centrist and not as fundie as the Republicans like. Besides, most of his support came from Guiliani as the NY mayor- and now he's out.

3. Guiliani running for Governor would be horrible but, I would DEFINITELY bank on Spitzer at least giving Guiliani a run for his money.
