Who should be the next U.S. President, and why? (why! not why not...not mere bashing)
I would like to see Hillary Clinton, although not because of political leanings, a respect for history, or any agreement with established policies and principles as exhibited by her. It is only because she is the strongest woman candidate, with the most fund-raising potential, out there; and, we should have a woman prez soon. Then, an African American, then a Latino, and then an Asian. At least Hil is smart, and has already been privy to nat'l security issues as both a Senator and as a first lady. I understand how limited the Presidential power really is, and as our Legislature is a little more balanced than before with more moderates than ever from both parties, she should have an easier time than Bush will for the next 2 years. Plus, she has as much war-time experience as Bush had, read: none; so, she can hardly come in with bias (ala Mcain), or guilt (ala Kerry), or even ignorance (like Edwards and Obama).
