First off, Hillary says she’s holding off until the first of the year to announce whether or not she’ll be running. We’ll see if the phone calls over the next couple weeks asking Obama if he’ll accept Vice President will have something to do with it.
Also on the side of the donkey, Denni Kucinich has said he plans on running for president in ’08. I really don’t want to have to create a category for him yet because frankly, this has to be a joke.
Kucinich announced this because he says his party doesn’t want to lose the war enough:
“Democrats were swept into power on Nov. 7 because of widespread voter discontent with the war in Iraq,” said the Ohio lawmaker. “Instead of heeding those concerns and responding with a strong and immediate change in polices and direction, the Democratic congressional leadership seems inclined to continue funding the perpetuation of the war.”
I’ll write him a campaign slogan, something like “Dennis Kucinich: Because we can retreat faster.”
Hot Air has some more on Kucinich including appropriate images.
Also in other news, some New Hampshire folks are urging Barack Obama to run in ’08:
Barack Hussein Obama drew the kind of political frenzy that is commonplace in New Hampshire in the final month before the nation’s first presidential primary.
In this case, it happened more than a year in advance for a man who hasn’t even decided whether he’s running.
Obama said he is still “running things through the traps” as he considers whether to join a field of Democrats that’s expected to include front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton and several other more experienced political hands.
Why don’t we ask Ted Kennedy…
