Obama might find the attraction of the White House even more compelling if mainstream Democrats continue to turn on Hillary Clinton. (1) opinions -- Add your opinion
The most important factor in the 2008 race gets the least attention - its not going to be conservative vs. liberal or even dem vs. repub - its going to be about Washington Insider Vs. Washington Outsider.Post a Comment
You can't get much more inside than a US Senator, but as a first termer new to DC Obama can run as a 'young man in a hurry' ala JFK - just inside enough to know waht's 'wrong' with DC and how to fix it.
After 2008 Obama will be too 'inside' to run as a young man in a hurry AND face a possible challenge from another moderate minority who might get elected governor somewhere - who can run as a true outsider and a leader, which a senator can't.
So its 2008 for president for Obama - after that, he's just veep material.
