First one to throw his hat in the ring for 2008

Here we go...

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Democratic Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa took the initial step in his long-shot bid for the White House Thursday, establishing a presidential campaign committee and seeking an early jump on 2008.

"Americans sent a clear message on Tuesday. They want leaders who will take this country in a new direction," Vilsack, Iowa's two-term governor, said in a statement. "They want leaders who share their values, understand their needs, and respect their intelligence. That's what I've done as governor of Iowa, and that's what I intend to do as president."

Why is it that so many people are convinced a rejection of the Republicans is a rubber stamp for the Democrats?

Stephanie brings up a very good point.

I have $20 that says that he's history in 3 weeks.

I also predict that McCain will fade too ;-)
