It was 446 democrats and 405 republicans.

CNN/Gallup reported a new General Election poll yesterday. It was in the papers and on the news. I will try to bring in those results too.

I really hope that the democrats will not pick Hillary Clinton to run. While thats a nice idea I don't think the country would vote her president any more than they would a minority candidate. Our country is just too close minded for that.

And if they didn't choose such a liberal candidate, John Kerry I believe that we would have a democrat president right now.

If you think Hillary can't win and Kerry is too liberal, who do you think could pass for a reasonable democratic nominee?

I sort of understand what you are saying because I feel the same way about Rudy Guiliani. He is completely inexperienced compared to even the least experienced contemporaneous pres (GW) and character-wise he is lacking on too many fronts. However, I do think that people like Mc-Cain or Hagel are reasonable choices.

I would love it if Jimmy C-arter ran in 08. He is eligible to run again and my respect for the man just keeps growing with time. Don't dismiss the idea so easily. :P

I doubt he would want to run again but if only he would...

I like Jimmy Carter too! Have you heard anything about him running!? Or are you just feeling love for him? I think he came out with a new book recently.

I'd be happy with Kucinich though, from what I know so far.

Gurl, I am just loving him right now!

I think that he has learned very much since his term and could really be what this country needs. Frankness and honesty are rarely seen in politics but I guess he can afford to do both since he has nothing to lose but I do think that he would be as open and honest as humanly possible in a---wishful thinking---second term.

I think L.G. is setting himself up for 2012 but he is increasing his national profile every chance he gets so he may test the waters in '08 just to get more name recognition. Right now he is pretty much only known to Clinton haters.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - And the winner is Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.
The climax of a three-day gathering of Republican activists from 37 states came Saturday evening in Memphis as Frist won an early test of strength for 2008 GOP presidential contenders.

Frist won 36.9 percent of the 1,427 ballots cast here by delegates to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.

The shocker of the evening was that Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney placed second, besting far better-known rivals Arizona Sen. John McCain and Virginia Sen. George Allen. Romney finished with 14 percent of the vote.

Third place was shared by Allen and President Bush, each of whom won 10.3 percent of the ballots cast. Bush, who of course is not eligible to run again for president, was the write-in candidate that McCain was pushing through the weekend.

The results of the GOP straw poll were announced live at 9pm Eastern Time on MSNBC’s Hardball.

"We're excited about the grassroots being here. We're excited about the energy," said Frist spokeswoman Amy Call, who then started high-fiving with other Frist aides.

Romney spoke to the Memphis gathering on Friday afternoon – the first of the contenders to address the gathering.

Nancy French, who said she writes political humor for a living and organized the Romney volunteer effort in Tennessee, told reporters that she and other volunteers had spent three weeks preparing for the Memphis event. “If we had twice that, we could have taken the whole thing,” an exuberant French told reporters.

Asked if she – like Romney – was a Mormon, French said, “No, I’m a Presbyterian. Everybody keeps coming over to me and saying, ‘Way to go, Sister French,’ and I’m – like – ‘thanks.’ I feel like I don’t know what to say.”

She said the Romney campaign had not called her to work on the Memphis event and that she and her husband had organized their own pro-Romney volunteer effort.

Meanwhile on Saturday in Livingston County, Mich., a fast-growing exurban county near Detroit, Romney won a straw poll of GOP activists, according to Michigan Republican Party chairman Saul Anuzis who was in Memphis.

He told reporters that Romney had won 25 percent of the vote, McCain 18 percent, and Allen 17.5 percent. He estimated that about 400 people had taken part in the Michigan straw poll.
