Over on Iain Dale's blog there's some speculation about who will be the next US President. Leaving aside the possibility that George W. Bush dies in office (although we've yet to see if Tecumseh's curse of Presidents elected in a year ending in a zero always dying in office truly has ended or if Ronald Reagan's survival was just an anomaly), speculation about the Republican candidate is growing.
Personally I'd like to see Rudy Giuliani run. He's on the bearable wing of the Republicans, has shown great leadership in turning New York City around and holding it together on 9/11 and could do much to restore the reputation of the US across the world. Already so-called "pro lifers" (sic) are declaring their opposition to a Giuliani candidature which is a good sign that he has the right enemies. Draft Rudy Giuliani has launched the campaign for him to be President.
Sadly my preferred Vice-Presidential candidate is unlikely to be available at the moment due to the current provisions in the US Constitution baring people not born in the US from running. Otherwise Arnold Schwarzenegger would make an interesting choice. I am sure many would agree with his principles of balancing budgets, removing incompetent public officials from office and delaying the making of any more Terminator movies!
