    >1988 President Election


    Select thread.

    >Poll: Democratic Nomination: by ConnallyDem

    With the mid-terms over, who do you guys support in 1988, and why? I'm torn between Cisneros and Bumpers. Cisneros will breathe new life into our party, and like me is from Texas. Bumpers has a massive amount of experience and looks like the leading Southern Democrat. I think they would make a great ticket.

    Jack_the_Progressive
    I'm hoping for Wilson Goode as the nominee. Sure he had the failed Vice Presidential campaign, but President Buckley lost a general election and still won four years later. Goode should have the progressive wing locked up unless Senator Holtzman enters.

    Rational_Centrist
    Clearly, the front-runner is Wofford. He's got the insider connections being Cheif of Staff under Shriver, and now Senator from Pennsylvania. Plus, Governor Chris Matthews will appoint a fellow Democrat, unlike many other potential candidates (cough Schultz). I don't want to see who Meachem appoints to the Senate!

    Had_A_Cool_Name
    No one is looking at Lee Hamilton. He's visited Iowa so many times, so we know he's running. I bet that if he doesn't get the nomination, he'll get Secretary of Defense. He will do what Buckley did in 1976, rise above the major candidate's mess and win.

    NewerCoke
    My money's on Holtzman. She's one of the best NYC Mayors and is getting stuff done in the Senate. Wofford won't run the best campaign; he thinks he's inevitable, allowing the liberal outrage over Buckley to show.

    >Republican Nomination: Is Jagt Inevitable?: by m_rubio_miami

    Vice President Jagt has a clear lead in the polls and has the backing of most of the party's establishment (including President Buckley). Who could defeat him? There has been a big draft campaign for General Oliver North, but he wants to stay out of politics. I'll give him an 8% chance of running. Harrison Schmitt has the name recognition as an astronaut and has been a pretty good Senator.

    Rational-Centrist
    I've said this a bunch of times, but if either party gets Lee Iacocca as their nominee, they've won the election. I doubt he's actually going to take the plunge, but it will be a bad day for the Jagt campaign if he runs.

    Barry'O
    Maybe Lee Dreyfus? He's a very interesting figure, fiscally conservative and socially liberal. That might go well with the Lodge wing of the party, and he's a good public speaker.

    Jon_Leibowitz
    @Barry'O, the Republican Party is a long ways away from the days of President Lodge. Buckley brought the party to the far-right. If you are looking for someone to beat the Vice President, maybe go for James McClure.

    AC_Federalist
    This may sound silly, but Evan Meachem or Clint Eastwood could work.

    Had_A_Cool_Name
    @AC_Federalist No.
