These are some very, very outlandish choices...which is the MOST outlandish?
You didn't include Jeb Bush as an outlandish option. I can see him preaching "values," especially those to do with the family.
McGreevey is on this list because...? Why not just put Andrew "Dice" Clay at that point?
Jeb Bush isn't an outlandish option. In fact, if he decides to run, I'm guessing he gets the Republican nomination pretty easily. By all accounts, he's slicker, brighter, more articulate, more politically astute -- in short, more "presidential" -- than his brother currently occupying the White House. According to several stories about the Bush family, he was the son that everyone figured would be following in George H.W. Bush's footsteps as President, not George W. Bush.
And honestly, if George W. Bush can get nominated and elected to two terms, just imagine what Jeb Bush can do, if he decides to run. He would be an extremely formidable candidate for any Democratic challenger.
I voted for the Ah-nold/Bubba option -- mostly for Bubba. Really, I can't see the country repealing the 22nd Amendment in the next four years, and especially not for Bill Clinton. Ah-nold's chance I rate to be a bit higher, but I still don't see an amendment to repeal the "natural born citizen" clause being ratified in the next four years. In fact, I could easily imagine its not being ratified at all, since I can envision 13 states' not ratifying it.
Because he's a fudge packer?
I, for one, would prefer not to think about 2008 for at least another eighteen months or so. Preferably two years.
Seriously, it's too painful and nervewracking.
Does that excite you?
That might be enough to get him on your speed dial, but it's not enough to get him on any Pres candidate list.
I voted McGrevey because this is the first I've heard anyone mention him in terms of possible nominees while I've heard everyone else mentioned before. However, I don't think term limits are going to be repeled nearly ever and I don't think the natural born citizen clause is going to be gone by 2008.
The title of the thread is the most "outlandish" pick. I think McGreevey qualifies.
How could you leave Lyndon LaRouche off the list - is he in prison again?
You know, he's got a point.
I didn't even consider McGreevey because he was such an outlandish choice.
See, if you're going to be obscene and/or purposefully insensitive you have to be funny. That's the only way it works.
I'm glad you included Colin the Dachsund from Black Adder. That really is an outlandish pick!
Other - Jimmy Carter runs for a second time, bringing southern values backs to the Dems....
Yeah, McGrevey was a mistake. I had to come up with 8, and couldn't think of an 8th that wasn't Gary Coleman-outlandish.
You forgot Alan Keyes.
