Get ready for President Clinton

Dick Cheney, the man who's been consistently wrong about every major prediction, took a break from gathering flowers and candy from the Baghdad streets to weigh in on the '08 election:

US Vice President Dick Cheney said that Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton will not win the White House in 2008 and would not make a good president if she does.
I guess this is proof positive that Hillary Clinton will win the White House in 2008 and will make a good president when she does. I'm not much for dynastic presidencies. I think it's dangerous when running the country becomes a family business, so somebody, anybody, tell Cheney to shut up before his astonishing bizarro-powers jinx another Clinton into the White House.

By the way, if the President is serious about the need for less polarization in Washington, he might want to mention that to his hatchet-man:
Cheney, who in October had called Hillary Clinton a "formidable candidate" who "could win" the race to replace US President George W. Bush, told CNN television "I don't" think she would make a good leader.

Asked why, Cheney replied: "Because she's a Democrat. I don't agree with her philosophically and from a policy standpoint."

I'm just glad Rummy's too ancient to run.

It'd be like chosing between being mauled by a pitbull or getting a hernia check from a gorilla.

Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are the best arguments for why Ford made a mistake when he pardoned Nixon. Had the impeachment investigations gone forward, these clowns might have been drummed out of Washington long ago and we wouldn't have been inflicted with them today.

Those parasites would have survived Nixon. They're akin to the bubonic plague-carrying parasites abandonning the rats and transferring to humans.

They'd have found another host to spread their wicked diseases.

Now, now... I don't agree with Clinton, either. It does not surprise me a bit that "Clinton, Act II" is possible. I've been looking over the declared candidates, the undeclared candidates, the third party candidates. Maybe it is time for a woman. Elizabeth Dole, and Dr. Rice both come to mind. Maybe it's time for a person of color, such as Obama or Powell. Maybe it's time to kick EVERYONE out, start fresh.

There's another option, too: Anarchy, anyone?
