Bottom line: I think Sen. Barack Obama, who is seriously considering a run for president, is going to jump into the 2008 race.No one knows what he stands for, but there are many that think he can give Hillary a lot of trouble, because he will pretend to be a centrist, just as she does. She has enough money that she will win the nomination, and she will probably pick this black man with just two year's experience as her VP candidate. I still don't think she can be elected, but we really need to try to urge Condi to get in the race. If she runs, Condi could destroy a Clinton/Obama team.I predict the freshman Illinois Democrat will announce near the end of this year or the beginning of 2007, sometime after he returns from a holiday break in his native Hawaii.
