Condi won't run. Maybe as a VP she'll consider it.McCain's time has not "passed." Everyone typing this seems to be relaying a personal opinion instead of paying attention to polls and the real situation. He's stayed very fresh and popular despite him climbing up the age ladder.

I agree she won't run, but as VP she would be a force. She's a little too weird to be president though, even though she is smart etc, she just looks too goofy.The reality of the television age.How about Alan Keyes? I really liked him in the Dole era, but not so much in the race against Obama. Still the man is smart, and a strong conservative.

Warner at 15-1 is the best bet. seriously if the dems were smart that would be there guy. all they need is one red state to win the election. Warner would get a least one and would likely get his home state of virginia that never goes dem in pres elections.serioulsy i think he will win the primary for the dems. HRC will do something dumb during the primaries to ruin her chance.

Hyaaaaaaaaa!Warner would win VA from anyone except possibly McCain. I think he'd take Fla/LA/MS/Ark down too. If he can get to the general election, he pwns.

If only HRC would commit the ultimate blunder and not win the primaries, Warner would be an outstanding bet. However, I think she's a heavy favorite to win the Democratic nomination. If it's any Democrat other than Hillary, they would give McCain or other GOPers fits. Therefore, I'll take Edwards at 30-1 instead of Warner at 15-1 because the risk is nearly the same and the payoff is twice as much.Burgerman

Bah, you think Edwards can be centrist enough to attract the independent away from McCain or Giuliani? Not so sure about that one.
