News For Democrats: Who would you love to see as president?

  1. Jan 30, 2006 #1
    After Bush is gone, who do you think would be the best person or a wish list person for president and why?

    He already said he is not running in '08, but I say Barak Obama. I think he has the presence, the intelligence, the pragmatism, and the right ideas. He seems to be a guy who can bring together a lot of people and make them see the reasonable path ahead.

    Meh, by 2008 I might be a Democrat. :rolleyes:

    I think Mark Warner would be the best Democratic candidate. He's an (ex)-governor and governors have a natural advantage over Senators. Not only is he a governor, he was easily one of the top five governors in the US, if not the best.

    He'll never leave the Senate and I doubt he'd even want to be president, but I'd love to see Robert Byrd give it a shot. He's been my favorite democrat in any branch of the government for a very long time.

    He actually said that!!! If he actually means it, I would infinitely prefer him over many modern presidents to date.
