    Nary a one at the moment. however, whether that will still be true 3 years from now remains to be seen.

    I don't think anyone on that list could beat Clinton. Rice is the most obviously attractive candidate, but she has never run for or been elected to any office, and she is deeply tied, much more than Clinton, to the disastrous Iraq invasion. Candidates who look great on paper can turn out to be terrible - just ask President Rick Perry.

    Secy. Rice may have the best chance since she is poised from her service and intellect to be a world leader, not tied to a history of local politics, has name recoginition, and can wear a badge of loyality.

    However, those same qualities could be held against the Secretary, as in a lack of expierence in dealing with constituants, no real hometown or region elected service as a base, and no history of being accsesable to the regular voter, only to one particular parties Comander-in-Chief.

    I love Scott walker I'm gay and I find him attractive but anyway I would vote for him but I think condolleeza rice will win over hillary. People forget how popular Condolleezza rice is. Let's just say she will turn the electoral map all red

    Condoleezza Rice could. Christie has also proven to be a strong (possible) candidate however there's no knowing what could happen. I'm actually a democrat so...

    the only "strong" candidate I see on that list is Rice. I do see a lot of great VP candidates though

    I think the worst one has as good a chance as any to win over her.
