Presidential Elections - Whos Running

As you all know the 2008 election is rapidly approaching. The Media has seemed to focus on the Democratic Party so I wanted to give you a quick run down so you'll be able to hold a conversation on the political election.

As you know President Bush can not be re-elected ( thank goodness) and Cheney has elected not to run for Presidency

Fun Fact: Barring a reversal of Cheney's Sherman Statement, this will be the first time since the 1952 election that the incumbent party has put forth a candidate for President who is not currently President or Vice President. It is the first election since that of 1928 in which an incumbent President or Vice President has not sought either party's nomination (as Alben Barkley briefly did in 1952).

Thank you for posting this. This, at least for me, is much needed. I feel the media is really only focusing on the Democratic party...
