Who does this help? (Warner exit stage right)
Not Hillary Clinton. Everyone on the Mark Warner bandwagon were already looking to an alternative to the Church of HRC. That she is too east coast, too liberal, to politicy, to plastic... too what we've already seen, is why they were looking at Warner.
This doesn't help John Kerry, Wes Clark, John Edwards (well maybe a little... the last southerner in the race) because Warner was a fresh face and they're all retreads. It could help Evan Bayh or Tom Vilsack, they're both midwestern wanna-be centrists. But come on, they have the personality of a plastic fork.
This helps Gov. Bill Richardson most of all.

According to a Newsweek article, a web exclusive by Jonathan Alter, aides put the chances that Senator Barack Obama will fun for President in 2008 at about 50%.
Past speculation has placed the odds a lot lower than that or the possibility of a Vice Presidental slot on the Democratic ticket. Alter says that the odds seem to be much higher as Obama's rising star gives him the ability to raise the much needed cash to compete with Hilary Rodham Clinton.
This article is timed right on the heels of Obama's newest book, "The Audacity to Hope," that is set to be released October 17. In the book Obama wrote that the Democratic party is "confused" and "the party of reaction."
Obama book is sure to be a best-seller (I am sure buying one) and help propel him even more as a national figure. A run at the presidency for Obama is being wished for by many, including me, and could give hope to this country because he is not the typical politician. He values his beliefs and believes in his values as a guide for the common good.

WHY VOTING FOR UNITED STATES PRESIDENT MATTERS
Because when too few eligible voters participate it's possible for incompetent and dishonest politicians to control much of the U.S. government with disasterous results. George Bush and his administration may be remembered as the most incompetent, arrogant and foolish in American history.
NEWSFLASH...VOTERS COULD HAVE PREVENTED INEVITABLE DISASTER
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED... NOW WHERE'S MY ROADMAP

I just checked in with the campaign website for Frank Moore, candidate of The Just Makes Sense Party for U.S. President in 2008, and found that Frank had expanded upon his presidential platform. Yet again, he is not afraid to just make sense! What do you all think of these ideas? Can you imagine what the country would be like if even one of these ideas were put into effect? http://www.frankmooreforpresident08.com
