I know it's early to talk about 2008 right now. And we really can't say who will be best suited for the job yet since the Bush administration is still going on. Not to mention Iraq is still up in the air. But lets paint a picture of 2008: With these scenarios, what would each party present with its nominees? And how will they nominess handle themselves with the scenarios. Now this is with Iraq as the main focus not taking anything else into account. You can add other issues but they may or may not be such by the end of the election. Let alone new ones will spring up before the election. Take this and determining what a postive and negative outcome is, it is one tough cookie.
