Decision 2008: Presidential Power Rankings Week #31.

Here are your end of the month rankings, and also dont forget to miss tomorrow's show at 3:00 eastern time at http://blogtalkradio.com/politics-central


1st: Rudy Giuliani (rising) His lead nationally has impressed me so I will put him in the number 1 slot this week.

2nd: Mitt Romney (steady) If he can hold on to his lead in Iowa and NH he could very well be the next nominee of the republicans.

3rd: Fred Thompson (rising) Now what seems to be a must win for Thompson has swung to McCain and Giuliani. South Carolina is now at the top of his must win states list.

4th: John McCain (steady) Many are saying he is out of this race, but I wouldn't be so sure. Polls show his numbers in SC and NH strong and its still early. He is the same choice for the GOP being well-known experienced and most of the time conservative.

5th: Mike Huckabee (rising) I am betting that Huckabee gets a strong finish at Ames. He needs it if he wants to stay in this race.

6th: Newt Gingrich (steady) His polls are dwindling day by day. Maybe he wont get into this race as we had thought he would.

7th: Sam Brownback (steady) So far doing well with being the most conservative he needs at least a 3rd or 4th finish at Ames to be taken seriously.

8th: Ron Paul (steady) His fundraising is impressive and polls are started to look brighter for the congressman even though he still doesn't have a shot. Maybe he will make a 3rd party run to continue on to the general election.

9th: Tommy Thompson (steady) His campaign needs at least a 3rd place finish at Ames to survive. If he doesn't he is done.

10th: Duncan Hunter (steady) Is he still running? It doesn't seem like it. he isn't going anywhere.

11th: Tom Tancredo (steady) Still dead last in most polls and is already looking at his re-election campaign in 2008 instead of his presidential run.

12th: Chuck Hagel (steady) It really doesn't seem he will run for president or for the U.S. Senate in 2008. I think he will likely just retire with the buzz gone about a possible independent run with Mike Bloomberg.

(RIP: Jim Gilmore for President campaign)


1st: Hillary Clinton (steady) I have to say her debating skills are getting better and better. She looks to be the favorite in the race still and her numbers keep going up and up.

2nd: Barack Obama (steady) Some new national polls show him closing in but he still barely makes a dent in states where the race counts.

3rd Tied: John Edwards (steady) Edwards is now having to fight for what seemd to be an easy win for him. Iowa is now tossing back and forth between him and Hillary. This is a must win state for him. Without it he is over.

3rd Tied: Bill Richardson (steady) Good debate performances and double digit numbers in NH and Iowa give him a 3rd place tie. If he can get at least 3rd in both Iowa and NH and win Nevada he may have a shot at being the darkhorse candidate we have been waiting for.

5th: Joe Biden (steady) He isn't goign anywhere. The debates just dont seem to help him at all no matter how well he performs. He should look at whatever Richardson has been doing.

6th: Dennis Kucinich (steady) Kucinich proves to be leading the 2nd tier in debates but how can he fair in polls when he averages about 1%.

7th: Chris Dodd (steady) Its sad to see such an experienced leader doing so poorly in polls and support. We all no he doesn't have a prayer.

8th: Mike Gravel (steady) Debates are doing well and he ahs doubled hsi support form half of a % to a whole 1%! Not much of an accomplishment but for his campaign it is.

Decision 2008: Democratic Youtube Presidential Debate

Today the 8 Democratic presidential candidates met to discuss the issues with voters as they asked over youtube video. It was a very interesting night and not as calm as past debates. Early on youtube videos tried to get the candidates fighting when Congressman Kunich attacked Obama and Clinton. Clinton made a point to say she is not liberal that shwe is modern progressive and that the term liberal has been stretched in recent years. The Democrats seemed to love Chuck Hagel and hate Mitt Romney. Biden and Edwards would have picked him as a VP running mate if they could only choose a republican. Mitt Romney's education plan and his money in his pocket was thrasher at the debate. Edwards shined when he said he doesn't want votes who wont vote for Hillary and Obama because of their gender or race. Only Congressman Kunicinch made a point to say right out he was for gay marriage. The others weren't clear on the issue.In Iraq they defended their work in congress as Democrats and blamed Republicans for not joining them in ending the war. Governor Richardson said he is working to have troops out by the end of 2007. Mike Gravel defended his statement that soldiers are dying in vain in Iraq like they died in Vietnam in vain. That got alot of response, but I would like to state to all who view this site that they ask Sen. Gravel to withdraw that statement. that is an uneeded comment for those who are serving today in Itaq and for the families who have lost loved ones. Gravel should ahve watched the tone he said the comment in and he really shouldne't have said that at all. American soldiers die today for America and not in vain. Most the candidates like Richardson and Clinton were for sending UN peacekeepers to Darfur and Richardson hopes China will put pressure on Sudan in the situation. Most were for women in slected service. Clinton and Obama came under attack that they were not doing enough for their race or gender especially Sen. Clinton with being a women's advocate. None of the candidates stood out to us in the debate. Clinton did however seem the most presidential in her answers. Obama seemed unclear and unexperienced in foreign policy topics, but came back with stong stances in domestic policy liek with healthcare. Clinton being th most presidential we have to say won the debate. She proved she can be a great debater tonight. Richardson came back tonight and performed better than past debates. Gravel and Kucinich acted as the attention getters going out of the norm in their answers. Edwards did well in showing his key points in his campaign.

Decision 2008: Presidential Power Rankings Week #30

This week we will have these rankings on our Talk Show so go to
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/politics-central to listen.


1st: Mitt Romney (steady) He still is winning in Iowa and NH according to polls so that gives him a lead.

2nd: Rudy Giuliani (steady) National Polls have evened and Thompson is starting to pull ahead in polls, but Rudy still remains on top even after attacks on his 9/11 image from the fire fighters union.

3rd: Fred Thompson (rising) He is set to announe after Labor Day and is now starting to lead in national polls. He hasn't even annouinced yet and the pro-choice lobbyst scandal has already hit his campaign. He may be leading but he hasn't got this in the bag not by a long shot.

4th: John McCain (steady) Still sticking to his guns even with his campaign falling a part he is hoping to pick up the pieces after 2 horrible months.

5th: Newt Ginigrch (steady) His national polls now are weak but in early states he remains strong the the unstatisfactory with the GOP candidate now may help him when he does get into this race.


1st: Hillary Clinton (steady) Hillary remains on top everywhere except for Iowa and South Carolina. Hillary may be leading it to a blow out next year. If she continues this lead she will win the nomination by a landslide.

2nd: Barack Obama (steady) Obama's fundraisng to keeps him a viable candidate and he has taken the lead in South Carolina. Hillary doesn't have this completely locked up yet but is pretty close.

3rd: John Edwards (steady) Needs to hold to Iowa. Without a win there his campaign will die fast but with hsi wife in the spotlight all the time he may get the publicity he needs, but he needs to be careful with Elizabeth.

4th: Bill Richardson (steady) New NH polls put him in 3rd ahead of Edwards. Could he be the darkhorse candidate we have been talking about. His ads have really helped pick up his campaign in Iowa and NH.

5th: Joe Biden (steady) His campaign remains dead, but is still trying to revive and trying to be a leading U.S. Senator. Can he be both a presidential candidate and a U.S. senator?

Decision 2008: Political News

This week Senator John McCain faced more staff resignations from his presidential campaign as his campaign starts to fall apart. McCain will not exit the race, even though he faces pressure from his staff and his budget. He no longer has any money to work with, and is off to California so he can get some money to keep his campaign running. Offices in Iowa, Michigan and several other parts of the country are shutting down and his campaign is now centering their attention on New Hampshire and South Carolina. McCain admits his campaign is in trouble, but isn't over yet. Its way too early. Ohio is looking to move its primary closer to NH and SC like Florida did weeks ago. With these new events SC and NH are pressured to move their contests to earlier dates. With these new states moving their contests earlier and earlier we may see a start to the presidential primary season in late or early December of 2007. Its now likely in fact I only see the campaign beginining a week earlier than expected. New polls from New Hampshire show U.S. Senator John Sununu in serious trouble in his re-election efforts. Former Governor Jeanne Shaheen who is likely going to be his challenger leads him 56%-34% according to a Research 2000 poll. 3 other unknown candidates barely trail Sununu showing how vulernable he really is. The Ames Straw poll in Iowa is nearing and candidates are working around the clock to get support before it takes place. Governor Mitt Romney is widely expected to take 1st place, but the rest of the pol is open, because of Fred Thompson's wait in entering the race. Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson expects to take 3rd while Sen. Sam Brownback feels he can win the poll. Mike Huckabee is hoping for a 4th or higher finish and if he doesn't he has stated he may think about quitting the race. With McCain and Giuliani not competiting and Thompson waiting on entering this could give a 2nd tier candidate a chance to shine and get into the 1st tier. I expect that Romney will win the straw poll hands down however. No competition for him.

Decision 2008: New Polls on our site!

We have posted 2 polls for the Republican and Democratic Primaries. The Top candidates in other scientific polls our included. You have 6 days to vote in our polls!

Decision 2008: Jim Gilmore exits presidential race

Former Virginia Governor and RNC Chairman Jim Gilmore announced yesterday that he has formally withdrawn from the race for the Republican nomination for president. Governor Gilmore gave little explaination to his withdrawing, but it is believed poor poll numbers and poor fundraising totals were the weighing factor on his exit. Gilmore averaged 1% in polls and raising only $200,000 nationwide. Gilmore is said to be weighing in on a possible run for the U.S. Senate in 2008 if incumbent Republican John Warner does not run for another term. He is also said to be considering a possible run for governor in 2009. Gilmore is recovering from emergency eye surgery, and many thought he would quit the race after the surgery.

Decision 2008: Presidential Power Rankings Week #29.


1st: Mitt Romney (steady) Iowa and NH leads keep him in the #1 status even though his national polls are weak. Really 2 early wins hwoever could thrust him into the lead. New Hillary match-ups show him close to beating her in the general election.

2nd: Rudy Giuliani (steady) Led the pack in fundraising and remains on top nationally, basically making him the frontrunner, however polls in early states dont look good and many are starting to question his America'a Mayor title after the Fireman's union's attacks.

3rd: Fred Thompson (steady) More and more states are swinging his way and a win in South Carolina could give him the south for sure. Thompson is surging to become the favorite of the 1st tier.

4th: John McCain (falling) McCain's campaign is near death, with the news of his campaign becoming broke. He has shut down offices in Michigan and Iowa and is now concentrating on NH and South Carolina to keep him alive. Both are now must wins for his campaign and if the big 3 on top hold on to the lead McCain could be squeezed out, but McCain has said he will not drop out.

5th: Newt Gingrich (steady) Gingrich may be too late in enetering this race with the race for cash in its 3rd quarter. He will be far behind cash hounds Giuliani and Romney.


1st: Hillary Clinton (steady) Her little slip with John Edwards hasn't seem to hurt her campaign and she still remains way out in front. If Hillary wins Iowa I think the campaign for the Democrats will end quickly.

2nd: Barack Obama (steady) His cash in the bank still gives him an advantage, but one wonder where is all this money coming from since Hillary has about twice as much support in polls.

3rd: John Edwards (steady) Iowa is now a must win for his campaign and he has started to fall behind Hillary in Iowa polls. If he does lose Iowa I see him quitting the race early on.

4th: Bill Richardson (steady) Richardson has really turned his campaign around. New polls out of NH show him only 4 points behind the Edwards and 10 points from the lead. Could he be the darkhorse in the campaign? Its not likely.

5th: Joe Biden (falling) Biden is losing publicity and many dont even now who he is or that he is runnign for president. He doesn't have the money to air ads like Richardson so he may have a harder time turning his campaign around.

Claudia Alta Taylor "Lady Bird" Johnson 1912-2007

Today only a few moments ago, Lady Bird Johnson, the former First Lady of the United States passed away at age 94. In the past 10 years Mrs. Johnson's health has declined, but she has said to have died under natural causes. She was the longert living First lady at 94 years. Her and Bess Truman are the only first ladies to live over 90 years. Her husband President Lyndon Johnson preceded her in 1972 nearly 30 years ago. Please pray for the Johnson family after this terrible loss.

Decision 2008: Political News

Anti-Iraq War Activist Cindy Sheehan is now say she will challenge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her house seat in 2008, if she does not file articles of impeachment for President Bush. Pelosi will not likely do so, so look for Sheehan to run for congress next year. There was talk of her running as a 3rd party candidate for president either as a green or as a libertarian. Don't look for a challenge to come from this as Pelois is quite popular in her district. Disabled Iraq War Veteran Tammy Duckworth who run last year in 2006 for congress will not challenge her old opponent who she narrowly lost to, Peter Roskam. Roskam is now looking to glide to re-election with Duckworth out. Another McCain team shake-up. Senator John McCain fires Terry Nelson as campaign manager and longtime McCain insider Rick Davis heads the campaign. This comes after numerous shake-ups in his campaign. Will the McCain campaign ever rebound? 6 Republicans in the senate now oppose the Iraq War, with New Mexico's Peter Domenici switching his support. Domenici is up for re-election next year and may face a tough challenge. Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore is recovering from eye surgery and has posponed his presidential campaign but has said he will jump right back in once he heals dismissing any rumors he was dropping out of the race.

Decision 2008: Colbert Watch

Well on the show a week ago, Stephen Colbert denied interest in the 2008 race, but the draft movement is hard at work to get him to run. Unity08's poll now says 85% want Colbert to run for president 15% dont. Thats up from the 60% yes and the 40% no 2 weeks ago. Could these polls, petitions, and other draft movements get the comedian to actually run for president in 2008?

Decision 2008: I'm Back!!!!! Here are your Presidential Power Rankings week #28.

Hope you all had a great 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!


1st Tied: Fred Thompson (rising) Thompson is gaining state after state in the south and he is tied with McCain in the delegate count according to polls as of right now. He is now close to a lead nationally and is set to announce soon.

1st Tied: Mitt Romney (rising) Romney and Thompson are closing in on Hillary in general election match-ups, and Mitt still holds Iowa and NH under his belt.

3rd: Rudy Giuliani (steady) National Lead remains strong and won in fundraising this time around. Rudy's campaign is alive and well.

4th: John McCain (steady) McCain did fall behind in fundraising, however he raisied more money than many expected. Polls are slowing turning around for McCain in early states as well.

5th: Newt Gingrich (steady) His numbers are falling and his late announcement will certainly hurt his chances.


1st: Hillary Clinton (rising) Clinton has certainly gained back the title she use to hold as persumptive nominee. She currently holds a 20+ point lead nationally and is gaining back all early states.

2nd: Barack Obama (steady) Record fundraising totals to give Obama a jolt, but as Edwards put it Money doesn't count its the voters that count and in that area he isn't doing so well.

3rd: John Edwards (falling) Poor fundraising totals this time around. His lead in Iowa has slipped as well.

4th: Bill Richardson (rising) His polls are going nowhere but up surprisingly in Iowa and NH. Could he come back and get into the 1st tier?

5th: Joe Biden (falling) Biden really has started to fall apart. His campaign remains dead and isn't getting a spark. I think after January of next year he will drop out and run for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
