for some time now however Chirac never went to Iraq so Sarkozy who was in Chiracs cabinient wasn't tainted by supporting an unpopular war.
I agree Giuliani would be a formidible opponent let's just hope the religious right takes him out in the primaries and leaves us a lessor threat to have to contend with.

I like Kucinich and Gravel the best but in the people that have a chance I like Obama ,Edwards & Richardson.
