4. It would probably take a lifetime search for a
clean Republican and at the end there would be no guarantee.

5. Indictments
We shouldn't get our hopes up. It is quite possible there might be NO indictments!!

16. indictments
My thoughts also. I hope it doesn't end in some low-level operatives getting indicted.The Repugs are nasty and dangerous bunch. They will and can do anything to avoid indictments. And don't forget, they are in power in all branches of Gov't.And the opposition is spineless!!!

15. I've said for a while now
Hagel is one that genuinely scares me. He talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. He appears more moderate than he really is. Say it's Hillary vs. Hagel... Which one of these has advocated withdrawal from Iraq, at least in public statements? You add in Hagel's ties to ES&S, and you've got an election that we'll almost surely lose.

11. Ron Paul (R-TX)
Now that would make it an interesting race.

17. Dan Quayle is tanned, rested and ready to serve!
Seriously, if they want someone fairly skeleton-free, John Danforth (fmr sen of Missouri) is out there and he's no older than McCain.
