    To be elected President?

    Don't give me any of that "Anyone but Bush" garbage either.

    I'd like to see who the Bush Basher would like to see in office.

    And also, I'd like you to note that I've never once said that I support George Bush or his administration. I have said on countless times that I respect the President of the United States, no matter who he is.

    I, personally, would like to see John McCain make another run. I doubt it will happen this time, but I can always hope.

    Jack Ryan. Without a doubt, the best concept for a president ever.

    If I'm constrained to real people, Condolezza Rice has always impressed me, as did John Kasich when he was in congress.

    I'd also like to see how we'd do with a random name taken from the Iowa phonebook.

    I, too would like to see more moderate republicans like John McCain and more moderate democrats like John Breaux or Wesley Clark in the picture.

    But centrists get bashed from the left and the right and have no party support. Democrats only support candidates who are liberal ON EVERY ISSUE. Republicans only support candidates who are conservative ON EVERY ISSUE. This kind of lock-step, partisan politics is leaving a lot of thinking people behind. Some of us enjoy views that are truly centrist, while others have broad views that support both conservative and liberal policies depending on the issue.

    I can only hope the widening divide betweeen the republicans and democrats make a vacuum that enables the forming of a pragmatic, third party -- right in the middle. Then we can see if a candidate with presidential timber emerges to capture the moderate vote. I have no hope for Bush republicans or Kennedy democrats. They are so far to the left and right that they aren't even in the road anymore. They're in the ditches.

    Alan Keyes is definitely a good guy. I wish we had 10,000 just like him.
