Who Will Republicans Run in 2008?

Giuliani seems to be the favorite on most polls I saw. Maybe it's just some of his fame from being the Mayor of New York on Sept. 11th. lingering. After leaving the Mayors office he stated that he had no interest in politics for a while, if ever. We'll see if four more years will be long enough. I kind of liked the guy until he turned out and campaigned hard for Bush.
McCain might be too old to run in 2008, but he's already got a lot of household name status. I actually favored McCain in the 2000 primaries over Bush...what a shocker. I favored him because I thought despite the fact that he's a Republican, he seemed to have integrity. He of course disproved my theory last year when he was out kissing Bush's ass.
There are people out there who would support another 4-8 years with a Bush in the White House. I don't know how likely this is, as Jeb has already stated that he doesn't wanna go for the highest office in the land.
He's probably the most qualified for the job, but not a lot of average people know who he is. He has announced that he will not seek his Senate re-election in 2006, so we'll see.
Just what we need in the White House, a Mormon Bishop...enough said. Romney might not be very likely as his approval rating as Governor of Massachusetts is dropping fast and he's still in his first term.
Yes, Bill Clinton's old arch nemesis is thinking about running in 2008. He has recently published a book criticizing Bush's tactics in Iraq. He's going to do a book tour which he will also use as a means to see how likely a presidential nomination is based on his reception.
a match up I'd like to see: Hillary Clinton vs. Newt Gingrich
