DS: I know 2008 is a few years away but are any potential candidates that you see having a good chance to reach the White House?This is not the first place that someone from the Democratic side has mentioned their concern over a possible run by Chuck Hagel in 2008.
JWM: On the Democratic side I think that the "New, Improved Al Gore" probably has the best shot. No one besides Rupert Murdoch seems quite ready for Hillary, and I think that John Kerry has lost a bit of his mojo (not that he ever had much, poor guy, although I generally like him). I see the three of them vying for the nomination along with some side-show characters, and I predict that Al will come out on top. He might even surprise us by offering Hillary the Veep spot. On the Republican side, my nominee for "The Republican Democrats Should Fear the Most" is Chuck Hagel of Nebraska. I don't always agree with Chuck, but he's not afraid to bash Bush or Karl Rove, and he's a class act. It's hard not to like Chuck Hagel.

"The Republican Democrats Should Fear the Most is Chuck Hagel"
An interesting look at the 2008 election in an interview with James W. Moore from The Kentucky Democrat.
