2008 Presidential hopefuls

According to a CNN/Gallop Poll conducted in mid December, it appears that if the primaries for the Democratic nomination were held today, Sen. Hillary Clinton would have the support of 33% of voters, with former presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry coming in second with 17% of voters. Poll. Looking at the same poll for the Republican nomination, it appears that former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sen. John McCain, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have considerable more support than the rest of the challengers. Undoubtedly, these numbers and candidates will change in the next two years, but should any of the candidates listed in these polls race against each other, the republican candidate would have the advantage according to the poll. Curiously, former democratic Gov. Mark Warner of Virginia, a dark horse candidate and the man I would like to see run, only garners 3% of support. While the general election is still a long ways away, it is never too early to discuss what could be the most important election in this nation's history.

I would take these polls with a grain of salt. If anything these polls only gauge name recognition.
