On the Democrat side my best guess is Hillary.

As for the Republicans, there are too many possibilities for me to give a reasonable guess.

Jeb Bush? Chris Christie?  Rand Paul? Certainly not the Tea Party whore Ted Cruz. You're a Republican. Whom do you like?
==========================
As an almost total aside, let's forget the rules and consider that person we'd most like to see as the president. I'd go with the present tabloid darling, Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Where my wife and I shop for groceries, the junk magazines are parked in the checkout lane, and almost every women's magazine features Kate in some form. "Kate's new shoes," "Kate's favorite handbag," "Kate's new baby!" "Kate flies a kite!"

I don't know what her foreign policy priorities are, but I'd vote for her in a minute because I love her hats!

Kate, husband, and little George are currently touring Oz and charming everyone.
One thing is obvious, the little guy is going to inherit a great set of teeth.

Thanks, sir. Perhaps we should have a separate thread for the whereabouts, accouterments, teeth and hair of the Princess.

I suggest Princess Kate Unveiled!

This just days ago.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in New Zealand early Monday local time for a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. It's the first royal tour for Prince George.

Prince George is third in line to the British throne, but his parents want to be the picture of a modern family. So William and Kate are taking their 8-month-old son on a business trip.

If nominated, I will run for the border.

If elected, I will fight extradition.

I see Senator Ron Paul's son is being touted as a candidate. As for that brain dead woman from Alaska, I am not sure which she needs to look after in that picture the most.

Nope.
The "head of State" is the president of the republic, we had a woman as prime minister, never as a president.
Besides being a woman she was also a lunatic but since she's already dead I will not criticize her.

If you refer to monarchy, here we always had a decent monarchy, Queens don't rule shit.

As for the next American elections, after a black Nobel prize, the competition must be between a gay and a housewife. Both will have a Nobel prize of course. Unless it goes for Putin... that would be funny but not less surprising than to Obama.

I do have to groan that we will get brained with "that time again." All the ballyhoo and those ridiculous political conventions that are pointless. And as standard practice the champion front runners will give tear jerking speeches about a new country and new horizon et al and the audience will be almost tearful at the dumb rhetoric. What a system that just repeats the same old stuff and everyone forgets they hear it each time.

I watched an interview with Senator Ron Paul on television and was struck by his directness, honesty and different stance. He is sick to death of the constant need for wars and the militarism overburden. When he commented that "we should stop interfering everywhere else I nearly shouted "hooray." (!). It is a shame that a country with so many decent people in it are stuck with a system that no longer works and is controlled by corporates not the people they elect.

And it is corporate control whether you like it or not. Both the main parties are in their pockets and fine you know it! Other countries that are probably wider based have proper political party conferences and individuals speaking whereas over there it is all childish ballyhoo. If you were being frustratingly honest you would probably with a sigh accept that all you can do is go for the lesser of two evils. Other political corners don't get a look in and with so many millionaires on the Hill only proves my point. And on the matter of repeating I will do so again and remind you of President Eisenhower who warned the USA to be watchful of the rise of the corporates and he was a Republican! That was all those years ago.

Who is elected over there is important unfortunately as you rule the world and heaven help anyone who doesn't like the imperialism. In a system people and political leaders can be with a gap and when you consider the tens of thousands of lobby merchants on the Hill tells you something too.   I know you do not feel inclined to the glbal aspect of your nation but it is continually difficult for appraisal when it dabbles so much everywhere on some pretext of freedoms or some would-be principle. What normally follows is an invasion of big business (Afghanistan mess is the latest of a long line). I like Americans in general but the sysetm is something else.

Think after some appraising will not do a third visit but go for the day to Edinburgh to see the brand new tramwasy system along Princess Street...... :D

I grant the possibility, even the likelihood. What I'd like to know is what the outcome is. How does it affect my daily life? How is corporate power in the US different from corporate power in the UK?
