Obama for President
Maureen Dowd, columinist for NYT says dems should groom Barack Obama for President in 2008. She opines:
"The weak and pathetic Democrats seem to move inexorably toward candidates who turn a lot of people off," she advises. "They should find someone captivating with an intensely American success story... and shape the campaign around that leader....
"The Democrats should not dismiss a politically less experienced but personally more charismatic prospect as 'an empty vessel.' Maybe an empty vessel can fill the room."

I think it is a great idea. Hillary ain't gonna win folks. The Clintons are hated by too many people, and do we really want 4 to 8 more years of this crap like we have now, the bashing, the hatred, the polarization of the country.
I think someone fresh with no baggage might just be able to pull us all together. Well maybe not everyone (we'll never be embraced by the far right) but they are just a small percentage of the Republican party.
